About "Congressional Success"
It is hard to tell if anything can get done in the current political climate. Some say it is the worst it has ever been. From disruptive protests to Trump tweets, how much can government do?
Quite a lot, actually. Check this out from the Wall Street Journal:
“Senators have differing views on whether the Kavanaugh fight is doing lasting damage to the Senate. Some believe that sentiment in the body is changing, at least in the short term, while others believe the FAA and opioid bills are evidence that the Senate is working as it should.” (WSJ, October 4)
The fact of the matter is that this congress has gotten a tremendous amount of work done. This makes for great extemp speaking. This week’s final round spends some time on congressional successes, rather than the ones that typically make the headlines.
This week’s final round goes deep into little-known Congressional successes. Other topics include whether the ACLU has lost its way, Google bowing to China’s censorship rules, how the NFL is responding to brain injuries from its players, and much more!
