What’s Going On In Your House

Timestamp: Monday morning, Martin Luther King Day

As I pen this another possible government shutdown looms. The current House Speaker, Mike Johnson, is part of a leadership agreement on a budget (which is already months late – students try that in your school work. No don’t, I’m only being sarcastic!)
