House approves $26.1 billion in aid to states
House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi has done to every student and every teacher something the GOP couldn't do: She brought congress back in August for a vote on aiding schools and got it passed.
I've been challenging the speaker to become more direct in her public communications. She has yet to develop that special technique---but she did the most important and dramatic thing possible... Helping states maintain their firefighters and police force, while we are having such a bad economic downturn.
I don't know what is going to happen in November's election, but I hope we will bring back a majority Democratic congress, so Mrs. Pelosi can continue to work her magic.
