Good Job So Far

The first bill proposed by the GOP-controlled House was expected to sail through; they even had press releases ready to go hailing the hard work the Congress for getting something done.

Something surprising happened in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives Wednesday afternoon: the chamber, with a large Republican majority, failed to pass a GOP-backed jobs regulation and reform bill.

The bill would have passed with plenty of votes, but since it was treated as a “suspension,” it needed 2/3 of the voting members, and it fell short.
