Despite What You May Hear, We Are Getting Things Done | Speaker.gov

“It would be hard to fault the average American for thinking all that’s going on in Washington these days is high-drama hearings and partisan sniping. But amid the countdown clocks and cable news chatter, something important is happening: Congress is getting things done to help improve people’s lives.” –Speaker Ryan, IJR op-ed
