TO THE CHAIRMEN AND RANKING MEMBERS OF
THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND
THE SENATE COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS
This week, some astronauts stopped by the White House (hint: think 1969), we talked about "inversions" (more on that later), the President awarded the Medal of Honor, and the Vice President got a marker and white board and gave us a little bit of history on our nation's infrastructure.
Welcome to the West Wing Week, your guide to everything that's happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and beyond.
Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President took to Tumblr to answer some of your questions on the President's newest Executive Order that prohibits federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
