In much of Southern California, it’s not Christmas Eve without tamales. A Southland congresswoman makes them an essential part of her holiday tradition.
Ever wonder how a freshman congressman celebrates the holidays?
The 111th Congress has finished its business; members are heading home for the holidays. Lawmakers adjourned without a floor vote on a resolution to recognize the Armenian genocide.
It appears that there’s sunshine in the forecast for the first time in days. But that doesn’t mean the danger from mudslides is over. One member of Congress remembers the damage to homes in his district long after the rainclouds had disappeared.
Congress is likely to adjourn sometime today, but there could be a last minute vote on a U.S. House resolution that officially recognizes a massacre that occurred nearly a century ago.
The holidays are a time of laughter and tears – and in the case of one Bay Area Democrat, both show up at the same party.
It's not on the official "things to do" list. But one of my colleagues from the Turkish press is asking the relevant Congressmen about a House Resolution that would officially recognize the Armenian genocide.
Most folks rave about the national Christmas tree in the backyard of the White House. I'm partial to the Farragut North Metro station myself. There are bows on the handrails and candy canes leading to the escalator.
The US Census numbers are out. California won’t pick up any new seats in Congress. But this state will still have the largest congressional delegation.
The most recent WikiLeaks revelations mention an Orange County Congressman’s trip to Honduras with a pair of campaign contributors trying to do business with that country. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher says the trip was neither illegal nor out of the ordinary.
I love the "Washington Post"'s want ads. Stuff shows up there that you never see in the "LA Times." Like a posting for the Dean of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
Immigration reformers “dream” faded Saturday when the DREAM Act didn’t muster enough votes to prevent a filibuster. But an LA Congressman saluted the front line troops pushing for passage: the young scholars who call themselves "dreamers."
Just saw the wonderful "The King's Speech" on opening night here in DC. (yeah, I know you guys in LA saw it a month ago...)
The U.S. Senate is expected to vote tomorrow on the immigration bill known as the DREAM Act. The measure would grant legal status to students and members of the armed forces brought to this country illegally as children. A San Fernando Valley congressman says the vote may hinge upon comes what he calls the “crass” subject of politics over policy.
Immigration activists are making a final push for passage of the DREAM Act. The measure would offer legal residency to undocumented students and members of the military. The US House has already passed the measure. The Senate expects to vote on it tomorrow morning. Some Senators fielded calls from their Catholic bishops back home.
