110th Congress: Majority Progress

In terms of enacting their domestic agenda, when the question for Congress is one of Republican vs. Democrats, the majority's agenda has been mired in disorganized power struggles.
Wide Gap Between House, Senate on Small-Business Tax Packages
House Ways and Means Chairman Charles B. Rangel took aim at revenue-raising measures targeted to businesses in the Senate small-business tax package by summoning a panel from K Street today to denounce them.
When the question for Congress is one of the Legislative Branch vs. the Executive Branch, action has been much swifter.
Both Chambers Moving on Bills to Repeal Anti-Terrorism Law Provision
Legislation to roll back a law allowing the attorney general to install U.S. attorneys who can serve indefinitely without Senate confirmation is advancing in both the House and Senate.
The new majority is also going to have to face the music when it comes to the Federal Debt Ceiling.
