We are about 24 hours before the house has a Democratic Majority and tomorrow cannot come soon enough. With that said...


This was only part of one of his tweets lasterday but it was the creepiest part. In the meantime, leaders from both parties are expected to meet the occupant at the White House today.
On Thursday, House Democrats plan to use their new majority to vote through measures that would reopen nearly all of the shuttered federal agencies through the end of September, at funding levels Senate Republicans have previously agreed to. Those spending bills contain scores of priorities and pet projects for lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The Democratic proposal holds out one exception: The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees border security, would keep its current level of funding, with no new money for a border wall. The plan would also extend the department’s budget only through Feb. 8, allowing Democrats to revisit funding for key parts of Trump’s immigration policy in a month.

The president has asked for $5 billion in border money, far beyond the $1.3 billion Democrats plan to vote through this week. Trump, who tweeted his opposition to the plan Tuesday, has reiterated he had no plans to back down.
(Boldface mine; this is governance) This should be an interesting meeting today.

As we begin a new year, I am holding my tongue about who is and who is not going to run for the Office of President of the United States. What I want to see, hear and participate in is a healthy dialogue of policies and ideas about who I will vote for. I know we will have plenty of wonderful and not so wonderful candidates to choose from, so we have that going for us. Until then, I want to see what happens in Congress.

So happy 2019, let's do this!
