Jan. 20 (Bloomberg) -- “Newtown has changed the debate,” Plouffe said on CNN’s “State of the Union” today, referring to the Connecticut town where 20 schoolchildren and six educators were killed last month. * David Plouffe, Obama’s senior political adviser, took an

optimistic stance, saying that time has come for both

immigration change and gun control * Roy Blount, a Republican senator from MO, said he wants to

see a detailed gun control plan from President Barack Obama * Sen. John Barrasso, a GOP from WY, said the plan won’t pass

Congress and he doubts Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid will

bring it to the floor * Plouffe called GOP plan for short-term debt ceiling increase

“progress” * NOTE: Since ’60, Congress has boosted or revised debt limit

79 times, according to Treasury Dept., noting the U.S. has

never defaulted on its obligations
