New Session of Congress
The new session of congress convenes today. There will be dozens of first time representatives, but once they get down to business, the same divisive issues remain, including reducing the deficit and what to do about the borrowing limit. The outgoing speaker of the house took a lot of criticism yesterday for not voting on government help for the victims of Superstorm Sandy, so he changed his mind and the new congress will vote on that tomorrow.
