congressThanks for the memories, 112th Congress.

The new Congress will be sworn in today and will be welcomed by issues such as the sequester-huge spending cuts that could take effect in February-and the debt ceiling.

First up, though, Congress will vote on sending some $60 billion in aid to victims of superstorm Sandy-legislation that was delayed at the end of the last Congressional session.

A vote on $9 billion in immediate aid is set for Friday, and Congress is scheduled to vote on the remaining $51 billion by Jan. 15. As for the incoming Congressional class, Republicans have lost a few seats, and Democrats have expanded their control in the Senate. Read more at CNN.
