        ranking members in Congress

        At the beginning of each Congress, minority party members of each
        committee elect their ranking member, usually the person with the most
        seniority on that committee. However, party rules limit the number of
        committees and subcommittees on which someone may be the ranking member.
        In cases where the most senior member is already the ranking member of
        another committee, the next most senior member generally moves up to the
        ranking position.

        The ranking member appoints and supervises the
        minority staff of a committee or subcommittee and looks out for the
        minority party’s interests in all committee business.
        A committee chairman will try to work closely with the ranking member
        in order to maintain goodwill and to keep their committee as united as
        possible when reporting legislation out to the full House or Senate.

    The Country Owes ‘Big Time’ to These Veterans

    The country had already abandoned the Veterans of the previous decades and our wars since WWII and the many issues ignored, PTS, Agent Orange, Desert Storms Gulf War Syndrome and so many more while under funding the VA and really so in the past decade plus. Many many of the brothers and sisters of have passed on because of and now many of these recent Vets have also. These brothers and sisters shouldn’t have to continue the same battles on their home turf.
