    Wolf Blitzer,
    Tell the old speaker to stuff it with a sock, thank god the woman elected have common sense.
    Jan. 15 is not long enough, but better. Let's get this done today. If they, the tea party, play games again, pass law, no pay, close the gym, and lock them out!
    Start today working against their reelection.

    I believe we need to do away with Congress. They do nothing anyway. that would give a lot more money. and take away their insurance for life. At the least ask this bunch to step down. I think American people need to think about how bad this is making us look to the other nations. This is not democracy. So get rid of Congress. and just have the Senate. Or cut the Congress & the Senate in half. And yes ido think women could do better at least for a while. The man is suppose to be the leader. But when they act like children or Brats if u would someone needs to do something.
