Back To Politics In January 2019 With Speaker Pelosi & a Democratic House!

#1

Post by Orlylicious »

Couldn't be more excited about the new House in January. We've decided to enjoy the holidays and skip politics (other than big events, of course) until January. It's been great. Also, my Mom fell and is in the hospital, so we're working through the options. The Amazon Echo is so fun we're listing to music instead of political fights. So I'll be on the loony topics, and lurking on the politics, but it's been an exhausting two years following a political shock I'd never had before, I'm tuning them out for a bit. :P

Please wake me if something YUGE happens!


:lol: What Donald hates most is lack of attention. Talk to the hand until it's "Speaker Pelosi" to you, Donald. Speaker Pelosi will get back to you as soon as possible, Donald.

Oh, and this Saturday we of the New Hampshire Gay Men’s Chorus are singing the national anthem at the ceremonial “local swearing in” of NH’s Representative (or, he will be in three hours) Chris Pappas. Fun times!

I love that Pelosi is not ruling out impeachment and indictment for Trump.

Considering who we're talking about, subtlety DOESN'T register let alone work with him. I seriously doubt a 4X12 would make an impression.

N.Y. Post:
Pelosi carried 220 of the 235 Democrats in the House. There are also 199 Republicans, with one vacancy in a contested North Carolina district.

A number of Democrats voted against Pelosi, including Utica Rep. Anthony Brindisi, who voted for Joe Biden, who is not in Congress.

Others included Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb, who voted for Rep. Joe Kennedy; Utah Rep. Ben McAdams, who went with Rep. Stephanie Murphy of Florida; New York Rep. Kathleen Rice, who voted for Stacey Abrams, the losing Georgia gubernatorial candidate; and Staten Island Rep. Max Rose, who voted for Tammy Duckworth of Illinois.

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier had opposed Pelosi, voted for her, prompting sarcastic boos from the Republican side.

Here watching the ceremonial swearing in in House. What’s *really* striking is the diversity of the new class, and how it contrasts with the other party. It’s this constant, clear, visceral reminder of the state of the two coalitions.
