Democrats Improve Congressional Ethical Behavior Before Session Even Starts
"WASHINGTON - The January junket to warmer climates a postholiday tradition of sorts for some members of Congress could be headed to the wayside.

An accelerated work schedule set up by the new Democratic leadership has put a halt on many January excursions funded by lobbyists. Given that Democrats are taking over the House and Senate in part because of GOP ethics scandals, some lawmakers are fearful of the voters' wrath anyway if they go on the trips."

Thank you, Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi. Please keep it up.

We need Congress at work in D.C. to stop the Bush monster from bombing Iran and to get us OUT OF IRAQ.
