Could Congress Be Approaching Functionality?
After years of a lack of productivity, Congress seems to be getting its act together. Maybe.By Eugene Daniels | December 1, 2015
Tuesday, Congress announced a bipartisan highway bill that would fund projects for the next five years. If it passes, it will be the first long term bill dealing with transportation in more than a decade.
Coverage of the bill has consistently included a word we don't see very often in this political climate: compromise. So does this bill prove Congress still has the capability to reach across the aisle for the good of the American people? Maybe.
If you take a broader look at what Congress is doing before it goes on Christmas break, there's definitely some promise.
