Welcome to the 116th United States Congress

Mid-term elections

I enjoyed watching the 116th United States Congress get started on January 3, 2019. The media coverage was a bright spot.  It was fun, full of teachable moments, and the incoming class itself inspired me.  I welcomed it after the frenetic holiday news cycles about a volatile stock market, the government shut-down, and trade wars.

By now you know that this Congress is different from the others, but it’s worth recapping some of those differences.
