January 13, 2016
People in Washington are already suggesting that 2016 will be a “lost” year, marked by early political conventions, long Congressional recesses, a gridlocked Congress, and little achieved.
Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, 2016 is shaping up to be a very consequential year.
We will elect a new President, and while control of the Senate is up in the air, the House is likely to stay Republican. The new President and Congress will likely have “100 Day” agendas, passing bills that will be the basis for discussion during the rest of the year. Those bills debated in early 2017 will build off of what happens in 2016.
