The 'passed' legislation is also a lot lower than the past by about 40%.



Doesn't most "legislation" passed by the U.S. House consist of "pork-barrel" initiatives that use taxpayer dollars, or add more rules and regulations to society?

4 separate resolutions before the last one, the 5th, got out of the house.

He was impeached by Al Green for being racist. Rashida Tlaib for nothing. Really, no accusation just a house resolution. Brad Sherman for obstrcuting the Mueller investigation and finally..

Shiela Jackson Lee. Some of her gems she included were condoning White Nationalism, attacking the press and separating immigrant families. She even went so far as to say he should be impeached for cutting staff to save money and not filling the vacancies.

A f'n joke all of them are. If these butt heads took as much time and effort to balance the budget as they have to find something on Trump it would be a surplus by now.

He was impeached on the two articles presented to the Senate.

What others said they wanted to impeach him for, is irrelevant. You could whine that someone was trying to impeach him for jaywalking but it doesn't make it true.

And it's over.

Thank God! Now convince the rest of the Dem cult that thinks about nothing but getting rid of Trump.

116th Congress. This is the Resistance Congress.....115 laws enacted


The House itself has passed 400 or so bills. Hard to have legislation enacted when the Republican controlled Senate refuses to even bring most of those to a vote.

Resistance Congress? More like Obstructionist Senate.


C'mon now. The Art of Politics is making the "possible" happen, not preening and sending bills that have zero chance in the Senate. Real legislation has bipartisan and bicameral support. If Pelosi had wanted to get meaningful legislation turned into law, she could have gone that route.

Instead she chose the all or nothing Gambit and lost. Poor leadership on her part. I'm sure she thinks she is doing what is best for the Democratic Party. Pity. She should be concerned with what is Best for Americans.

I get that McConnell was a douce the second term of Obama. He made the bet that derailing the Obama agenda was worth the inaction. Even with Pelosi's antics, Trump is getting a new North American And Chinese Trade deals done. It's not like Pelosi has stalled the Trump Train.

They are definately useless and something should be done. But what?


Um, let me think... vote 'em out???


Except that too many people don't bother reading the ballot or the candidates run unopposed. Pelosi and Schiff are perpetual winners in elections. Why?


because california is crazy.

You dipstick, 500+ bills await a vote because Moscow Mitch won't bring them to the floor. Next time do some research before you spout off garbage and misinformation.
