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?

Yes to new era of corrections and law EnforcmentI like the mix of specifics & vision from the President with offer trying to work together and avoid phony controversies that don't matterWelcome charge by the president to create a better politics to "appeal to each other's basic decency instead of our basest fears".Powerful and welcome statement on climate from the President. He's not a scientist either, but he listens to them. So should congress.important statements on Cuba and Iran...trying diplomacy first will pay dividends for america...sanctions working with Iran and Russiayes to President's call for more infrastructure investment....as important as it is over due... and we should be able to agree upon on this!Spending the day with my SOTU guest @CherylStrayed. Her heroic tale is an inspiration for those in our nation’s Capital and a new Congress.Great event @PressClubDC w @smallUAVs, and OR's SkyWard.

At Merkley's swearing in party, the Vice President assures me he rode his bicycle down from Delaware this morning!#RCTID @malidragon whenever I look up & get a little hope for Pelosi, Boehner jumps ahead 10 more. Oh well, at I got preseason Timbers tix.Fruitcake brings us to the yard RT @repblumenauer: Press thins out as the speeches begin
Retweeted by Earl BlumenauerAnd now it begins!Press thins out as the speeches beginBoehner squeaks by. losing almost I 2 dozen votes signals continuing challenge. He can expect to lose about as many moderates in the future.12 defection and not half way through the roll call, maybe little more fall out than I thought, still not enough to deny him the gavel.The drama of additional nominations. I will be surprised if Boehner loses more than 14 votes, even after 3 additional names in play.Lots of New Yorkers in NYC for Cuomo's funeral. Mostly Democrats, so little impact on Speaker vote.Would this be a better place with friends and family, especially children here everyday? I think so, but tough thing to do to loved ones.air of excitement, press gallery filled for change. Lots of conversation w/conservative corner guys. How many votes does Boehner lose? <12@repblumenauer I ignored my own rule about biking in the snow today, which is to use @bikeshare to keep my own bike clean. Welcome Back!
Retweeted by Earl BlumenauerFirst vote of new Congress, a quorum call.....5 minutes left. Like first day of school with some new freshman..
