Republicans to begin reading Constitution out loud when they control U.S. House

BY Philip Rucker and Krissah Thompson (of the Washington Post)

WASHINGTON -- When Republicans take over next week, they will do something that apparently has never been done before in the U.S. House's 221-year history: They will read the Constitution aloud.And then, they will require that every new bill contain a statement by the legislator who wrote it, citing the constitutional authority to enact the proposed law. Call it the tea party-ization of Congress.

BY Matt Kibbe

The outgoing Congress, which began with a bailout-and-stimulus bang, ends with a Tea Party-inflicted whimper, bruised by a series of post-election "shellackings" on taxes, spending and pork.Meanwhile, a new Congress is charging toward the Hill like the U.S Cavalry, reinforced with scores of Tea Party-backed candidates and committed to a new day in Washington.

John Boehner's Tea Party Nightmare

BY Benjamin Sarlin

The incoming House speaker rode a Tea Party wave into the majority, but a debt-limit vote as early as next month could cost him their backing. Benjamin Sarlin on the battle that can’t come soon enough for Democrats.Rep. John Boehner owes no small part of his imminent promotion to the speaker’s office to the Tea Party, whose support he courted early and often en route to a landslide takeover of the House.

BY Huma Khan

Nightmare Before Christmas: FreedomWorks Fights Against the “Omnibus” Spending Bill

WASHINGTON, DC- With only a few days left until Christmas, Senate Democrats are planning to sneak a pork-filled “omnibus” spending bill through Congress, dumping over 1 trillion dollars’ worth of backroom bargaining into the stockings of American taxpayers. The bill is almost 2,000 pages long, and estimated to cost taxpayers about $575.13 million per page. Despite the sweeping rejection of big-government in the 2010 midterm elections, Democrats have once again proved themselves out of touch with the majority of the American people.
