Last night, the Senate addressed something I know concerns all of you – the sluggish economy. It is continually cited as people’s top concern, regardless of party affiliation. They did it by passing an economic stimulus bill that is fair and timely and includes help for those who need it, including the 20 million Americans who receive Social Security. And all of were a part of making it happen. Over 200,000 emails, faxes, and calls came into members of Congress to ask them to do it. Check one off for the people.
It couldn’t have happened without a little bipartisan cooperation. A unusual but welcomed thing in Washington. Maybe a sign of more to come?
