The House is in recess until Monday, January 27. The Senate will return on Tuesday and stay in session through Saturday.
LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
The House came back to work last Monday, and took up and passed two bills under Suspension of the Rules.
On Tuesday, the House passed the Rule for consideration of H.R. 1230, the Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act, and H.J. Res. 76, providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Department of Education relating to ...
Today marks the celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr. Racism has no place in this country and the Republican party has a proud heritage stemming all the way back to Abraham Lincoln of tearing down institutional racism. MLK Jr. Day belongs to all of us, but some on the left seek to lay claim to King Jr. all for their own.
John Reiniers shares his thoughts in the Washington Examiner:
If Martin Luther King, Jr. were still alive, we wouldn’t have to speculate on how that great man, who rejected violence, would react to the palpable loathing coming ...
Democrats love to pretend that their pet project cities full of liberal policies and values are slices of heaven on Earth. They’re delusional. New York City is a perfect example. The City Council is dedicating much of its efforts to reduce the homelessness problem that has gripped the progressive paradise. Their solution is to just hand out money at homeless shelters. How are they going to pay for this you may be asking yourself. Well, you’d think that the Council would take that money out of their $85 Billion budget, but no. In fact the New York City Council is ...
Democratic Debates are typically filled with empty promises, so hearing calls for free healthcare, college, and more will be nothing new. But, something previously unexpected that will, undoubtedly, be discussed during tonight’s debate is the story that broke earlier this week.
Earlier this week CNN ran a story that claimed in a private 2018 meeting, Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren that a woman can’t win a Presidential election.
The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren's apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in De...
President Trump’s first 3 years in office were nothing shy of incredible. Despite Democrats attempts to stall him at every turn, President Trump has worked tirelessly (and succeeded) at Making America Great Again. As we head into the President’s fourth year in office, the question on the mind of many Americans is how will he Keep America Great, despite the Democrats continued opposition?
Steve Forbes had an interesting perspective on what the President could do to continue his success in 2020. After praising all that the President has done thus far, he stressed that ...
The House and Senate will both return Monday. The House will stay in session through Thursday, but the Senate may stay in session later, depending on whether or not an impeachment trial begins.
LAST WEEK ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
The House came back on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, the House passed a bill under Suspension of the Rules.
On Thursday, the House took up H. Con. Res. 83, directing the President pursuant to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran. The ...
The debate over immigration policy shines a spotlight on the different views of Republicans and Democrats. On one side, President Trump supports enforcing our laws and ending illegal immigration, while most Democrats want open borders and amnesty.
Recently, Former Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Director, Tom Homan, talked about the contrast between Republicans and Democrats:
“Appearing on "Fox & Friends: First" with hosts Todd Piro and Jillian Mele, Homan said that liberal agendas would mean the "collapse" of the entire immigration system.
"I mean, ...
National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
Today is a day to celebrate and thank those incredible Americans who are willing to make incredible sacrifices, sometimes the ultimate sacrifice, for their fellow citizens. Police Officers, federal agents, and military personnel all deserve our deepest gratitude. Sometimes overlooked in law enforcement are our Firefighters. Their first responsibility isn’t always to enforce the law, but firefighters often make the same sacrifices as police officers.
Many have seen the devastating forest fires consuming Australia, many of ...
The House will come back into session on Tuesday, and stay in session through Friday. The Senate will come back into session on Monday, and I’m not sure when they’ll go home – if an impeachment trial begins this week, presumably they would stay in session through Saturday.
TWO WEEKS AGO ON THE HOUSE FLOOR:
The House came back into session on Tuesday, December 17, and got right to work.
First up was a vote on the Rule to govern floor consideration of the Senate amendment to H.R. 1158 and the Senate amendment to H.R. 1865, the two minibus approp...
