The Congress has grown rapidly and Jake-R NY and myself wanted to give all of Congress a chance to meet the other members and get to know each other. I encourage you all to use the comments to chat with other Congressmen you may not know too well now

There's no reason to not speak up. You don't have to be right, it's all about discussions and questioning opinions. Trust me, I have been corrected by 16 year olds several times (and I'm 38).

Lol. I comment occasionally, but a lot of times I do "this^^^" because I agree with what they said before I could say it. I will just ask more questions on issues I'm not sure about. :)
