As the 112th Congress gets sworn in, House Republicans will stream the first session of the new Congress live on Facebook beginning at 12:00 pm EST.
To access the stream you must visit the “Pledge to America” Facebook Page.
As the House transitions over to Republican control, online viewers will be able to watch the proceedings and make comments on all that they observe.
This live broadcast debut on Facebook is a sign of the G.O.P.’s attempts to involve all of America in the legislative by reaching out through the vast communication opportunities afforded through the internet and its social media outlets. Incoming Majority Leader John Boehner is currently utilizing a blog on his website and utilizes a Twitter account and a YouTube channel.
