Democratic Control

Washington – Today Democrats took control of the 116th Congress and Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of the House for the second time. She is the only woman to hold the position and only the second person to be elected twice in sixty years. Her strong leadership is in stark contrast with the weak leadership skills of Paul Ryan who served as a rubber stamp [puppet] for Trump.

One hundred woman were sworn into the new Congress reflecting the diversity of America. The diversity of the new Democratic Congress was in stark contrast to the “old white men” congressmen of the Republican Party.

Speaker Pelosi wasted no time going to work to end the Trump Government Shutdown. A shutdown resulting over his failed promise [LIE] for Mexico to build a 13th Century wall on the southern border. Now he insist the new Democratic Party pay for the wall with taxpayer money. Although the Republican Party has controlled all three branches of government for two years — is has been unable to pass legislation to build the Trump wall. The new Democratic Party passed legislation to reopen the government, with seven Republicans voting with Democrats, within hours of Democrats gaining control of Congress. Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring the legislation to a vote unless Trump tells him to do so, even though Republicans in the Senate voted for and passed this legislation two weeks ago.

The new Democratic majority has vowed to pass legislation to protect pre-existing conditions with health care coverage, strengthen the Affordable Care Act [Obamacare], pass legislation to stop voter suppression, rebuild infrastructure, pass immigration reform, assist with education support for middle class families, address climate change legislation, provide support to the middle class, and provide oversight to the corrupt Trump administration.
