You are probably hearing some confusing things about what’s going on in Washington these days. There are several different debates going on about how to keep the federal government operating, and what role the government should take in helping our economy recover and create jobs.
Here is the relevant legislation that we will be dealing with for the rest of this year’s Congressional session:
The current political situation is such that you, the constituents of members of Congress, have a lot of power. Constituent pressure is the only thing that can change bitter partisan politicking into tolerance for political compromise. Members of Congress must listen to you, their constituents. They have heard the message that you want them to do something to fix our nation’s problems. But you need to keep it up.
