brought to you by Jim Risch, US Senator from Idaho
Sen Risch hopes by Thanksgiving, we'll be able to identify improvement with either the "enormous" spending package or the vagaries of an "undulating" world economy, or some other way - like with better policy - he said today in his first speech in the Senate, where they were debating the Stimulus Package. It passed, 61-36.
Afterward, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell gives him some love, as does Sen. Max Baucus - Democratic Senator from Montana. Baucus explains that although he strongly disagrees with Risch, he hopes to work together in the future on Western Issues.
