What’s Wrong With This Picture?
This is a bald eagle; symbol of America.
This one seems a little ruffled at the moment.
Maybe he’s a little unsure of the change that is upon the country today.
Today at noon, the Congress begins its 110th session.
In the last election, the control of both the House and Senate changed parties and the Democrats now are the majority in both chambers.
The new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., promised during the election campaign to move six issues through the House in the first 100 hours:
Prosperity - Better American jobs, better pay.
Opportunity – College access for all.
Energy independence – lower gas prices.
Affordable health care – life saving science.
Retirement security and dignity.
It will be interesting to see if the six items clear the House within the first 100 hours.
It will be more interesting to see if the six items clear the Senate.
It will be even more interesting to see if the six items clear the president’s veto stamp.
Let the games begin!
