New Feature: U.S. Senate Week in Review
It’s going to be one hell of a year in the Senate and, to help you take it all in, I’m starting a Monday feature in which I will update you on what has happened in the previous week and what’s on the Senate plate for the week to follow. I’ll try to make complicated issues brief, will provide links to roll call votes and other relevant information and, more than anything, show you how many things are decided in an almost covert manner intended to fly under the news-cycle radar.
For example, did you know that Senate Republicans shot down two Democratic-sponsored measures last week that would have truly “supported the troops” in their time of need? Most people don’t – but you will. I’ll give you the basics today and will go into those two votes in more detail tomorrow.
Informed citizens are any country’s most valuable resource and I hope I can help toward that end.
The first Senate Week in Review comes out shortly.
