    New Congress Sworn in.

    Well the new Congress is sworn in today. What do you think the first thing the House under Boehner will do? How much do you expect Congress to get done and what do you want to see them to get done? How much more much vacation time will President Obama get since we now have a divided Congress?

    Washington (CNN) -- The 112th Congress officially convened Wednesday as Republicans prepared to officially take charge of the House of Representatives for the first time in four years and dramatically change Washington's political landscape.
    Democrats will maintain control of the Senate, but with a smaller majority.

    The change likely presages a stark ideological conflict with President Barack Obama, who is preparing to defend his legislative accomplishments of the past two years and position himself for a re-election campaign in 2012.

    I can understand their stint about immediately attempting to repeal Health Care Reform (Even though its ultimately pointless, makes for good PR though).

    But if their first order of business is to begin investigating the Obama administration, then **** em. That's sure gonna put Americans back to work.

    Boehner is speaking live right now on C-Span. God, I hope he doesn't cry. I'm sick of people making fun of him.

    Stop acting so scared, you won't be investigated....I don't think.

    If they're busy investigating Obama, that less time they can spend passing job killing legislation.

    On the topic at hand, who knows what the **** will happen but dont expect much in scaling down the state
