November 2012 in Photos
November saw a new rush of activity in the Capitol, with Speaker Boehner appearing in the Rayburn Room the day after the election to call for bipartisan action to avert the fiscal cliff. Those efforts continued throughout the month, as Boehner joined GOP leaders for a meeting with the “Fix the Debt” coalition and delivered the Weekly Republican Address.
Boehner also welcomed a group of World War II Honor Flight veterans to the Rotunda; celebrated the 237th birthday of the Marine Corps; honored Dr. James H. Billington for 25 years of service as Librarian of Congress; and accepted a portrait of outgoing Science, Space, Technology Committee chairman Ralph Hall (R-TX) into the House collection.
