The U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC, on January 2, 2013, on the day after a compromise bill passed the U.S. Congress, avoiding the 'fiscal cliff.' The agreement raises taxes on the rich and puts off automatic $109 billion federal budget cuts for two months.
Today is moving day in Congress. Whatever you thought of the old Congress — that would be number 112 — you'll now have a new class to blame for fiscal cliffs and the like.
And there's a lot of activity in the California delegation with 14 members leaving, either because they retired, or failed to be re-elected.
That means 14 new faces taking the oath of office as the 113th Congress is sworn in. KPCC's Washington Correspondent Kitty Felde joins us from the Capitol.
