U.S. HOUSE - Democracy Takes the Helm

COMMENT:  OK, I am a progressive (small 'p') but I was a Registered Republican in 2000.  The GOP has become the enablers of a dictator-want-to-be Trump and his destine for rule-of-law, our Constitution, and long held American values including not speaking hard against Nazi and White Supremacists.

So, yes, I see the Democratic Party taking the House as a real move FOR democracy.

"An ‘extraordinary’ day in Washington as shutdown looms over new Congress" PBS NewsHour 1/3/2019


SUMMARY:  On the first day of the new Congress and 13th of the partial government shutdown, political posturing distracted from progress on policy.  Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) promised bipartisanship, while President Trump reiterated his belief that a border wall would keep Americans safer.  For more on Washington's big day, Judy Woodruff is joined by Lisa Desjardins.
