Dear Commons Community,
After an eleven-hour plane ride from Athens yesterday, I am back home here in New York.
I am catching up on the news and am happy to read:
.The House of Representatives passed a short-term bill to keep the Federal government functioning that was passed by the Senate and signed by President Biden. Thank you House Speaker Mike Johnson and Congressional Democrats for joining with the Republicans to pass this measure.
.President Biden met with Chinese President Xi. I don’t know what was accomplished but the optics were encouraging.
.Disgraced Representative George Santos won’t seek reelection after a scathing House Ethics Committee report. Good riddance to this sleazeball.
Hooray for our government!
