110th Congress


The 110th congress was the governing legislative body during the last two terms of President George W. Bush. The technical dates for the 110th congress term was from January 3, 2007 to January 3, 2009. The United States Congress is the governing body that makes decisions regarding the welfare of the American Public. This is the body that entertains bills; they are also the first portion in the movement towards amending the Constitution. And this is the body that has control over the addition of taxes, military deployment, and various other decisions of importance. 

The United States Congress is made up of two separate bodies: the Senate and the House of Representatives. These each are housed with the own elected officials and are the physical groups that discuss and vote on the bills, amendments, and necessity for certain things regarding the American Public. 

During the 110th Congress, the House of Representatives did significant work in creating a $124 billion fund which was to be used for funding the war, while denying the appeal to have a security increase in Iraq. When it came to the billions of dollars requested to fund the war, the President at that time, George W. Bush had vetoed this request.

This meant that the 110th Congress could not follow through with allocating that money to their created venture. Overall, the job of the 110th Congress mainly focused around initiatives of Iraq and the ensuring the protection of the United States of America.
