US Vice President Joe Biden (R) helps Illinois Senator Mark Kirk (C) to climb up the stairs upon his return to the Senate on January 3, 2013 after suffering a stroke last January. Krik was welcomed by his colleagues on the step of the Senate a year after a stroke affected the right side of his brain. Kirk spent a year relearning how to walk in intensive physical therapy. The 113th Congress convenes Thursday fresh from the year-end fiscal cliff fiasco, but lawmakers will ring in 2013 casting a wary eye towards the even tougher budget battles that lie ahead.
