Good!: Supreme Court allows suits against contractor KBR to proceed http://t.co/IjvkehLAGU via @oregonian.@nytimescollins highlights the necessity of raising the gas tax with both humor and wit. We could use a bit of those in Congress!Gail gets it right. I am reintroducing my bill to actually raise the gas tax. http://t.co/CBpT6rkoqtEvery woman should have access to safe reproductive care. Congress should reduce inequality, not further restrict abortion. #StopHR7

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. Time to help innovators promote use, safety, and security. http://t.co/Xbc4YBRS4M

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.. Everyone trying to connectBiking to Capitol in snow, then running on Mall a great way to start the day & contemplate challenges ahead. Off to be sworn in for new term

Richardson thinks the Common Core came from the Federal governemnt. Like Bobby Jindal, he forgets that this came from the statesand even better answer on the disfunction of the Oregon property tax system by the Governor...Kitzhaber made great point on benefit loss to women as they move up the income scale...not widely understood and worthy target of actionglad the city club debate (discussion) is turning to substantive issues... Kitzhaber support to repeal ban on inclusionary zoning is a start
