We should keep up this bipartisan momentum & deal with transportation funding next to rebuild and renew America.The renewal of the Secure Rural Schools program is a huge benefit for Oregon providing much needed funds for counties & schools.Passage of #SGR reform to stabilize Medicare is amazing. It's encouraging to see such bipartisan support w/ 180 Ds & 212 Rs voting yes.

Curious...not one word about his failure to lead his own country in their peace process with the Palestinians or what he will do differentlystill chewing on the statement that Iran and ISIS are equivalentinteresting statement of known problems, waiting for any hint he has a solution that is better than diplomacy...Iran will always be America's enemy???? not what many Iranians feel or want....or what America has to accept..Says Iran is dominating 4 capitals...in large measure because of disastrous policy of America going to war with Iraq that Bibi chammpioned.Netanyahu is as smooth and effective a speaker as when i saw him here in 1999 for his first appearence.interesting bow to Obama for his support, things that could have been acknowledged long before this unfortunate event, but were notso far, everything according to script....

BREAKING! @HouseGOP votes to extend Obama immigration orders for one week!
Retweeted by Earl Blumenauerwell, the only "walk of shame" was the GOP leadership, leaving the Chamber after losing 52 of their members. Who counts votes over there?will we see a "walk of shame" as republicans go to the well to change their votes??? Or do they let it go down?republican games on the floor with Homeland Security will be a loss, regardless of final vote....how long to keep the voting machine open?
