Congress Overview

The 2006 elections produced Democratic congressional majorities for the first time in 12 years. California’s Nancy Pelosi became the first woman elected Speaker. House Democrats quickly passed bills increasing the minimum wage and lowering student-loan interest rates. Democrats and Republicans reduced taxes for economic stimulus. As the economy worsened and the housing market collapsed, the 110th Congress (2007–2009) passed bipartisan measures to stabilize the troubled financial sector.
