Last month, Speaker of the House John Boehner told the new Congress, “The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin to carry out their instructions.”

Well, Mr. Speaker, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll, here are some of the people’s instructions:

  • Pass an energy bill that provides incentives for using solar and other alternative energy sources (83% of those polled were in favor)
  • Overhaul the federal tax code (76% of those polled were in favor)
  • Withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan (72% of those polled were in favor)

When can we expect you to begin?
