What’s In & Out for 2015

 

By Ann Sullivan

 

Every year, the Washington Post publishes a list of what will be “in” and “out” in the coming year (just so you know, cauliflower is out and radishes are in). In that spirit, we offer a Congressional take on the Post List for 2015. This list was prepared with tongue-in-cheek, optimism and in a bipartisan manner.  We note, however, that now that Republicans control both Houses of Congress, they are the new ones to pick on.  We were tired of picking on the Democrats anyway. Happy New Year.

On a serious note, we believe that getting things done for women business owners never goes out of style.  We will work with both parties to ensure that it remains on everyone’s “in” list in 2015.
