Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Another year has passed as we welcome the new year of 2011. For most families, 2010 was, at best, a very difficult year. The employment outlook and the housing market are clear signals of a tough time still ahead of us. Despite the setbacks experienced by many, there were a lot of accomplishments of 2010.

In 2010:

  • Repeal of military Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy
  • Health Care for millions (but an area that still needs improvements)
  • Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
  • START - Nuclear Weapons Treaty
  • Unemployment Benefits Extended
