Commuting to Congress for the week of June 9th, 2014.
This week in Congress we voted on the NASA Authorization Act of 2014, the Veterans Access to Care Act, the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations Act, and a few bills regarding tax extensions.
In DC we had a campaign finance event that involved representatives of various faith traditions. They spoke about how getting money out of politics and reducing the influence of big money on government is a moral imperative.
Also, some shocking news that swept through Capital Hill this week was the defeat of Eric Cantor in his Primary.
