HAPPY THANKSGIVING

TREA hopes that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving this Thursday.

 

Last week was the first full week that Congress was back after the elections. There are still 2 House seats and one Senate seat up in the air (waiting for Louisiana runoffs in December.) But we certainly all now know what the Congress looks like and the change can already be felt in this town. (AND WITH SECRETARY OF DEFENSE CHUCK HAGEL’S RESIGNATION THERE WILL SURELY BE ADDITIONAL SURPRISES.)
