Congress Links

September 16, 2009 - by Avelino Maestas

With the introduction of the Baucus bill yesterday, I wanted to wait a bit before getting Congress Links up. Space flight, the Patriot Act, and DoMA were in the news today:

  • Obama backs extending the Patriot Act’s domestic spying provisions (Threat Level).
  • House Republicans want czar vetting info revealed (The Hill).
  • Will Congress extend home-buyers’ tax credit past December 1 deadline (New York Times)?
  • Greenspan worries Congress will hamper Fed (Bloomberg).
  • Panel says $3 billion necessary to continue manned-space flight (Christian Science Monitor).
  • Democrats lost leverage from the start in the health care debate (Washington Independent).
  • Brad Friedman on action in Congress to require hand-marked, hand-counted paper ballots (Brad Blog).
  • House liberals introduce law to repeal Defense of Marraige Act (San Francisco Chronicle).
