Obama and the Lame Duck Congress

>> Dec 23, 2010

It's been a flurry of last minute legislative wheeling and dealing in the lame duck Congress. Below are photos from Obama's tax deal, the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the DREAM Act, New Start Treaty, and the NY Senators on the 9/11 first responders bill. Also, the president squeezed in time to read to school children and wish them a Merry Christmas.
