House Republicans Start Acting Like They're in Minority

"House Republicans appeared to be coming to grips with a stark realization as they returned to Washington from a three-day retreat here -- they have a majority in name only," The Hill reports.

Preparing for a cascade of fiscal battles and a presidential push on guns and immigration, the House GOP is adopting a minority posture, hoping to achieve modest goals incrementally while serving as a check on Obama's ambitious second-term agenda."
