JANUARY 13, 2012 ~ VOLUME IX, NUMBER I
As the new year begins, so, too, does the second session of the 112th Congress. Eventually. In fact, the session will not begin until January 17-- and the House is only scheduled to be in session for a grand total of six days this month.
The current session of Congress is ending after a year in which the conservative House majority passed a budget which would have (had it passed the Senate) ended Medicare as we know it, repeatedly tried to limit a woman's right to choose, and held a routine debt-limit increase hostage to an extreme agenda.
