Gabrielle Giffords Back In Congress For Debt Limit Vote!!!

August 1, 2011

Amazing….wonderful…prayers are answered!

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona made a surprise return to Washington Monday to vote in favor of an agreement to raise the debt limit.  

“The #Capitol looks beautiful and I am honored to be at work tonight,” she said in a Tweet. 

Lawmakers offered Giffords a standing ovation on the House floor when she showed up for the vote. After it was completed, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Giffords’ name inspires the love and admiration of Americans and called the lawmaker the “personification of courage.”

“Thank you, Gabby,” Pelosi added. Giffords, her hair short, waved and thanked members as they applauded the sentiment.
