House Dems on Retreat…

A set of buses took House Democrats to their annual retreat in Cambridge, Md. today.  The retreat lasts until Friday when President Obama and Vice President Biden will stop by the Eastern Shore.

Many CBCers are on the trip including: Reps. Charlie Rangel, Donna Christensen, Elanor Holmes Norton, Barbara Lee, Corrine Brown, Frederica Wilson, Keith Ellison, Al Green, Bobby Scott, Yvette Clarke, Marcia Fudge and Greg Meeks.  CBC Chair Emanuel Cleaver will not be in Cambridge but the CBC, like the Progressive Caucus, has a retreat next week that of course he will attend.

As members departed with luggage and staff in tow a day after the President’s State of the Union, it became clear that this year will be sloooow and full of political games.  Will the House get anything done this year? Probably not.  We’ll see what the members say when they come back from the retreat.
