JOE DONNELLY: HOW'S HE DOING SO FAR?

WASHINGTON D.C.--He's doing good, it's a good-start! He's voted "Aye" for H.R.1 (implementing more of the 9/11 Commission's recommendations), H.R. 2 (raising the minimum-wage, very-good for an employer), and no-information yet on H.R.3, though I would imagine it was a "Aye". Big-surprise, the Republicans from Indiana are voting-against the bills in a bloc. So is Dennis Hastert--guess he's still sore about Mark Foley (pun-intended). One final comment on H.R.2: a motion to "recommit with Instructions" (last-chance to amend the bill) was executed, with the majority voting-against--including Donnelly. The amendment was submitted by Rep. John Boozman (good name, R-AR) to include tax-breaks for small businesses. The move failed across party-lines. At least they all agreed Jerry Ford was great. He's still dead, by-the-way.
