100 Days of Congress and What Have We Got?

The two major parties definitely have different views on the first 100 days of Congress. Howard Dean released a statement saying:

“After 100 days, Democrats are working hard to keep our promises to the American people. I applaud Democrats for passing ethics reform, increasing the minimum wage, implementing the recommendations of the 9/11 commission and restoring fiscal responsibility to Washington. Under the strong leadership of Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid, we are holding President Bush and his allies in Congress accountable for their permanent commitment to a failed strategy in Iraq and we are making sure our troops and veterans get the resources they deserve. We will continue to make sure the interests of the American people are always placed above partisan politics.”

The Republicans have a different press release entitled “100 Days of Delay, Disarray, and Dysfunction.” They make these points:

DEMS HAVE NOT PASSED ANY OF THEIR PRIORITY LEGISLATION

DEMS VOTED FOR LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN U.S. HISTORY

DEMS BREAK PROMISE OF FIVE-DAY WORK WEEK

DEMS LAUGHED AT CONSEQUENCES OF WITHDRAWAL IN IRAQ

DEM LEADERS DECIDED TO CUT FUNDING FOR TROOPS

DEMS WENT ON VACATION INSTEAD OF FUNDING TROOPS

DEMS LAID OUT "CONVOLUTED" PLAN FOR IRAQ

DEMS ADOPTED ROSIE' O'DONNELL'S VIEW ON WAR ON TERROR
