Here's what Raul is talking about on Facebook while the House "band" plays on:
Raul M. Grijalva Earlier today, I gave David Wayne Romick, a Vietnam veteran discharged with the Army Medal of Courage, his long overdue recognition. He had never received the award, and my office helped him with his case.
Raul M. Grijalva I am an original co-sponsor of the Local Jobs for America Act, which would extend $75 billion to state, local and tribal governments and private sector training programs over the next two years.
Raul M. Grijalva House Democrats have voluntarily decided to ban all earmarks that would benefit for-profit corporations.
Raul M. Grijalva New credit card regulations are about to come into effect. Everyone should be aware of potential changes to their policies.
Bank of America customers will soon be unable to spend more than they have in the accounts linked to their debit cards. It's a step that may become a common move ahead of new regulations limiting overdraft fees.
Raul M. Grijalva The filibuster was invented accidentally after Aaron Burr shot Alexander Hamilton. The history of the rule is interesting for anyone curious about how government functions.
Oh, on his official website, Grijalva posts an inaccurate partisan handout created for Democrats by the Committee on Energy and Commerce. But without comment on his views or how he intends to vote. Other important news to Grijalva while he prepares to add his vote for government takeover of 1/5th of the economy? Try these:
