GOP Congress storms into Trump era
At The Hill -- By Jordain Carney --
Congressional Republicans are returning to Washington on Tuesday with high hopes for a new era under President-Elect Donald Trump.
GOP lawmakers are eager to start work on an ambitious legislative agenda after gaining control of both Congress and the White House for the first time in a decade.
Though many congressional Republicans tepidly embraced Trump during the campaign, they’re increasingly optimistic that they’ll be able to work with him to pass big-ticket items like tax reform that have been non-starters during the Obama years.
