(walter) later this morning, congress returns to work for a lame-duck session that will likely be one of the lamest in recent memory.(jen) conservatives are urging congressional leaders to pass a short-term funding bill, and nothing else. (jen - the reason: republicans will have full control of every branch of government come january... in last week's election, the g-o-p won enough seats to gain the upper hand in the senate... republicans will have a
5:03 am
republicans fended off strong challenges from democrats to keep their majority in the house. they have a 239 to 193 majority. so until new members take their places, conservates want to hold off on making decisions on several key issues. (walter - that doesn't mean absolutely nothing will get accomplished. during this short session, the house and senate will elect new leaders for the next congress. leaders could also pass a bill that would extend or make permanent dozens of tax provissions... related to energy, mortagage insurance, tuition and education. and congress department of defense request for an additional 6- billion-dollars to support president obama's plans to leave 84-hundred service members in afghanistan. that money would also help increase resources in the fight against isis.

5:04 am
protesters shouted chants like dump trump and held signs that read "not my president." they say they know the protests will not keep trump from the white house, but they say it's still important to show the world how they feel about a trump presidency. (walter - and there's anger this morning, over an athlete's decision to join in the anti-trump protests. moments before sunday's game, wide receiver "mike evans" stayed seated instead of standing during the national anthem. this comes on a day that the team was saluting those in the military.

and backlash, trump's team is quickly coming together. sunday, the president-elect named the first members of his white house staff. former r-n-c chairman "reince preibus" will now serve as white house chief of staff. and "breitbart news" chairman "steve bannon" has been picked as chief strategist and senior counselor. priebus was recommended for the chief of staff job by house speaker paul ryan... which should help pass a lot of republican leglislation. bannon has faced criticism though, for his major role in the "alt-right" movement. have a better idea of the path president-elect trump plans to take once he enters the white house. hear what he had to say in his first interview since the election, in just a few minutes.

the community will be invited to share their ideas for a lasting memorial following today's vote. (walter) starting today, it will be a little easier for area bus riders to get to and from the bus stop. (walter - the hillsborough area transit authority link." the free app works like uber or lyft. it allows users to call a driver who will take them to the major bus stations around u- s-f and in the carrollwood area. but unlike those services, users can pay in cash and request a ride by making a phone call. a ride costs three dollars and drivers will only take customers up to three miles. the service is expected to expand to the brandon area in mid 2017.
