What’s causing the delay in disaster relief

Senator Isakson and I are not giving up. We are going to continue this fight, and we will get it done. -David What's causing the delay in disaster relief?

Solving The Debt Crisis

Here are some big things from this week: 1. Solving The Debt Crisis Unfortunately, Congress has once again put its political self-interest ahead of our national interest.
