Republicans in Congress threw more uncertainty into America's future today. The lame duck session won't even try to pass any full spending bills, which is especially bad news for the Pentagon. But Vice-President-elect Mike Pence, who met with the GOP’s House Caucus behind closed doors, emphasized that President-elect Trump would bring together "a great team" to work with leaders of the House and Senate "to rebuild our military -- revitalize our economy."  David Hawkings is senior editor of Roll Call, which keeps track of Capitol Hill.
