  • 117th Congress: DEMS IN DISARRAY!!!111!!

    Oh noes!

    Incoming Democratic House members Cori Bush (Mo.) and Jamaal Bowman (N.Y.), both of whom won their races after primary victories over longtime incumbents, would not commit on Sunday to voting to reelect Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

    “What I'm going to do is make sure that the voices of the people of St. Louis are heard and that we have what we need. And so you will find out then,” Bush told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday on “State of the Union.”

    Bash responded, “That’s not a yes,” with Bush answering, “I'm working with my community.”

    When asked the same question, Bowman was similarly noncommittal, saying, “You will find out when my vote is tallied and, again, organizing with our community to figure out what's best.”

    I'm getting really sick of everyone making everyone in congress "Schrödinger's Politicians."

    They (the general they, not anyone specifically) want:
    - politicians who have experience in DC, yet hate politicians with experience.
    - politicians to compromise, but never give any leverage.
    - politicians who are fiscally budgetarily responsible yet throw money at corporate handouts like Halloween candy.
    - politicians who give everyone tax cuts and wonder why politicians aren't providing funding for critical services.
    - politicians who don't help those who want federal handouts yet beg for politicians to give them handouts.
    - politicians to stay the hell out of local government but want the feds to handle local government because the locals are incompetent.



    As for Nancy, she's fine, but I hope someone has been shadowing her in an effort to take over if she's not selected as speaker.

      I'm fine with Nancy as Speaker. But I want to see all of the other leadership positions replaced with people younger than 50. Start grooming your leadership of the future, not your leadership from 1990.
      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        Yes. This.

          You and I both wish, but that will never be.

          I'd settle for under 70.

            Republican was interviewed this morning on the telly. Part of the House "Solution" caucus. Basically the folks that put together the craptastic stimulus bill. Anyway, what stuck with me was he argued that the people who believe the election was stolen have a legitimate reason for doing so and you denigrate them if you don't acknowledge their feelings or whatever.

            The problem with that is there is NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER to back up their claim. This is where we are at as a country right now. We have to placate insanity. We have to give voice to conspiracy. We have to "both" sides things that don't have two sides.

            If we want to progress as a people, as a country, and as a society we have to move out of that. The last (4) years of destruction dwarfs any progress made under Obama. And that was after Bush's 8 years destroyed anything and everything Clinton may have accomplished.

            We are living in Reagan's Utopia right now.

                  Toomey is a Senator. He's another one of those though. Same mentality. Toomey was on one of the Sunday shows this weekend.

                    House has approved 2k checks, guessing Mitch kills it now

                    Bernie says he’ll filibuster to prevent the defense bill veto override until the 2k checks are voted on

                      Rep. Kevin Brady on #CASHAct: "Will this stimulate our local economies? Not a lot. What we know is that much of this extra $1600 will go to pay down credit card debt, or savings, or even make new purchases online at Walmart, Best Buy, or Amazon."
                      So paying off debt and spending money at stores will not stimulate local economies? He understands Wal-Mart and Best Buy exist in communities right?

                        Not as effective as giving the rich more tax breaks I guess. It’s ok when they hoard money.

                          Seth Abramson (who I find increasingly annoying) brings up a good point. Trump wants the 2k check sent out...if Perdue and Loeffler vote against it that is going to be seen as quite the betrayal leading up to the runoffs. It Mitch buries it and they arent mad about it publicly same thing.

                            So it's ok, even preferential, to give Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy tax cuts, but not ok to give consumers money to spend there?

                            Does this guy even understand how the economy works?

                            I assume he's trying to make some sort of point about spending your money online instead of spending it at your local businesses that may be hurting. Fine. Why don't you inject some money directly to those businesses? But even those employees and owners will be getting $2000 checks too.

                              If I read right he was part of Ways and Means and pushed Trump's tax cut...so no he has zero clue how the economy works.
