Pizza man's first day as a Congressman

Washington (CNNMoney) - At the open house gathering to celebrate the official swearing in to Congress of Rep. Bobby Schilling in Washington, D.C., the pizza and ice cream were shipped in from Illinois.

The pizzas came in overnight from Saint Giuseppe's Heavenly Pizza, the shop that Bobby Schilling has owned for 14 years in Moline, Ill. Before deciding to run for Congress, Schilling was a pizza man. And lucky for supporters, there are pizza ovens in the historic D.C. office building, so the pizza was hot.

    Every republican in congress voted yesterday to defeat a bill that would name every congressmen who takes government health care. It appears in their stupid attempt to repeal health reform, they did not want their uninformed base to know they get their government health care paid for by the tax payers, but do not want almost 50 million uninsured to have any.
