Republicans carried on with their annual retreat this week, after member-doctors sprung to action when the Amtrak locomotive pulling GOP lawmakers to their West Virginia destination collided with a garbage truck on Wednesday, killing one of its passengers.
The previous night, President Donald Trump stayed on track during his first State of the Union address in the House chamber.
