New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 24, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 8A — Herald-Zeitung — Saturday, December 24, 2005 Most restaurants closed on ChristmasCongress wraps up—and leaves some of the president’s priorities undone Those who prefer dining out on Christmas Day may find themselves with limited options Sunday. Though many restaurants in New Braunfels are open on Christmas Eve, most will be closing their doors Christmas Day. One exception is Bamboo Asian Buffet at 651 N. Business 35 in the New Braunfels Marketplace shopping center. The buffet will be open for hungry holiday diners from noon to 8:30 p.m. Travelers and locals alike can also venture to the restaurant at TA Travel Center, formerly Rip Griffin’s Travel Center, at 4817 N. Interstate 35. The truckstop’s restaurant will be open 24-hours, in keeping with it’s regular schedule. Many fast food restaurants in the area also will be open on Christmas Day. WASHINGTON (AP)—Congress finished some perennial projects this year, like energy, highway and bankruptcy bills, but stumbled over or ignored some of President Bush’s priorities. “If it were an ordinary year, a traditional year, sort of a simple first year of a president’s second term, you would have to say he had a pretty good year,” said Stephen Hess, public affairs professor at George Washington University- “If you want to look at what he tried to do and didn’t do,” Hess added, “that list could look pretty robust.” The president handed Congress an ambitious agenda for his fifth year in office. He asked lawmakers to revamp drastically Social Security, prevent his tax cuts from expiring, rewrite the nation’s immigration laws and restrain government spending. Bush’s Social Security program, which included personal accounts for younger workers, faced united Democratic opposition and public skepticism. It quickly fell flat. Efforts to eliminate estate taxes and keep lower capital gains and dividend tax rates on the books struggled for support while moderate Republicans worried about federal budget deficits. Congress waited until the end of the year to engage in the immigration debate. A year of work toward cutting government spending bore fruit and invigorated Republicans, both conservative and moderate. It led to an across-the-board spending cut—only veterans’ programs were spared — and a $40 billion package of program reductions awaiting final action next year. “With the passage of this deficit reduction act, including an across-the-board cut in federal spending, the ‘Republican Revolution’ is back,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., who leads a group of House conservatives. Many of Congress’s achievements this year were more modest than the goals Bush set for lawmakers, said Michael Franc, vice president of government relations at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. “They did a lot of tier-two issues that were important to certain constituencies but that, in and of themselves, were not of any great magnitude,” Franc said. “It was not a year for, obvi ously, enactment or even action on tier-one issues." Die achievements included a popular highway bill that doled out billions in transportation projects across the country. A bankruptcy measure made it toucher to erase debt obligations. Energy legislation offered billions of dollars in tax subsidies to energy companies and fostered a wider mix of energy sources in future years. Other measures dealt with gun manufacturers liability, class-action lawsuits, terrorism insurance and the threat of avian flu. “If anything, this is sort of a tinkering Congress,” said Forrest Maltzman, a political science professor at George Washington University. It didn’t help, Maltzman said, that the president lacked one of his powerful generals, Rep. Tom Delray. The Texas Republican stepped aside from his duties as House majority leader when indicted on state charges of money laundering. But, then, there were distractions. TWo Supreme Court vacancies produced three nominees to fill the voids and three confirmations for the Senate to consider. John Roberts became the nation’s chief justice. Harriet Miers bowed out amid conservatives’ complaints. The next nominee, Samuel Alito, faces tough Democratic opposition at confirmation hearings in January. Hurricane Katrina tried to wipe the Gulf Coast off the map, and two hurricanes followed in her wake. Congress quickly got busy providing money and other assistance to clean up the mess and help communities rebuild. Among its last acts, Congress funneled $29 billion to hurricane recovery and reconstruction. In some cases, Congress pushed back against presidential dictates, to the frustration of GOP leaders at times. The Senate this week killed a bid to open an Alaskan wildlife refuge to oil exploration. Republicans bucked the president and enacted laws prohibiting the cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment of anyone in U.S. custody anywhere in the world. Lawmakers extended the Bush administration’s anti-terrorism law enforcement powers for a month, to resume a debate over civil liberties next year.
