You sure have a lot of optimizism, but based on the rest of the words that have come out of Bela Pelosi's mouth not a whole lot will change. She has already backtracked on one of the promises that got them the majority in the first place; implementing ALL of the 9/11 commission recommendations.

Way to go Pelosi, you showed that politics haven't changed under Democrat majority in Congress.

I do have optimism but I was afraid of this happening. I can only hope that in the next two years the Democratic majority can put Congress back on track and make it an independent branch of the government and not a rubber stamp tool for the Executive branch. Backtracking a little is OK but moving away from the 9/11 commission recommendations is not.
