Everywhere you look it is clear that Christmas is here. Christmas carols play on the radio, store windows are filled with elaborate displays, parades make their way down the street, and children line up to meet Santa Claus.
I am pleased to report that last week, for the first time in five years, Congress agreed upon a federal budget. The House of Representatives passed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 by a vote count of 332-94.
Just before the House of Representatives left for the holiday season, Speaker John Boehner engineered a bipartisan budget deal that was passed 332 to 94. Astounding, but true.
The bill, not thought of as perfect by either side, was easily the most impressive act of the largest chamber of the Congress during a time when most people see it as a desperate failure.

Republicans have hopes of taking control of the U.S. Senate, and most of the seats being defended are Democratic. But Democrats have a shot at taking GOP seats in a few states, most notably Kentucky and Georgia.
Have you ever wanted to switch wireless carriers, but keep the same phone? Or have you purchased a used phone recently and planned to activate it on a different wireless network? It seems like common sense to me. Consumers who have completed their phone contracts or have purchased a used phone should be able to activate their device on their network of choice. However, if you’ve tried to do that in the last year, you know that this simple action is no longer allowed under current law. But, that’s about to change.
