Speaker of the House: Rep. Radosta
Majority Leader: Rep. Soomro
Majority Whip: Rep. O'Quinn

Representative Radosta has spent virtually her entire life on Capitol Hill. Her father worked in the Senate office buildings as a custodian, and from her young days of childhood, Rep. Radosta was surrounded by Congressmen who took her in and taught her the ropes. Armed with insider knowledge on how Capitol Hill was run, she was perfect for a similar career, and pushed herself through law school - working three jobs - to achieve it. The classic American story, Rep. Radosta has come from nothing and emerged in the place she dreamed about as a child, helping her father mop the hallways of the Hart building.

Radosta served in Congress for 3 years before becoming Speaker, during which she maintained an important position on the Rules Committee. This intricate knowledge of the House floor only further cemented her status as the perfect candidate for Speaker. After the mid-term elections, and the turning of the tables toward the Democratic agenda, there was no doubt in any of her colleagues' minds who the perfect candidate for Speaker would be.

The Legislative Agenda
This is a Congress about togetherness. In running for Speaker, I made it my platform to support bipartisanship within the House, and I see no reason why that should change now that I have been elected. Under Speaker Radosta, the House will dedicate itself to passing legislation to recement America's good standing with the rest of the world. By reforming our immigration and foreign policies, we as a nation will boost our own economy - hopefully without further submerging ourselves in debt.

Issues:
Our main issue in the House is reaffirming America's place in the world. For too long have we rested on our laurels; we can't depend on our big-dog status to get our agenda passed any longer. As powerful as we are as a nation, we are not respected by our global community. This has to change. Reforming our foreign policy would undoubtedly also assist with domestic issues, the largest of which is, obviously, the economy. Less dependence on foreign substances would increase domestic spending, and better relations with our global partners would encourage American exports to said countries.
