    Gleaning from the news, I'd say it was taking away the tax cuts (Nancy Pelosi want's her "crumbs" back) that President Trump put in place, ensuring we have open borders and catch and release, impeaching the President, and keeping Obamacare for everyone but themselves.

    Did I miss anything?

      We've heard nothing about any intended policy direction . Proves a lot of political points made here  though ,  Tax increases , regulating second amendment and firearms  stuff ,  that's all ?

      Don't know what that is yet. But to slow up the Trump juggernaut and force him to negotiate with Democrats to get legislation passed is a damned good start.

        Does "negotiate" mean that Democrats will also make concessions, or only the President?

          I hope that both sides will have to make concessions, give and take, that is if the Trump administration does not want to go down as the biggest lame duck in history.

            LOL  It is my hope that neither side has to make concessions: that both sides are able to recognize what is good for the country and enact it without further ado.

            Isn't going to happen, though, is it?  Even if members DO recognize what we need there is still party politics to consider; the other party must not have what they want no matter how badly it is needed by the people.

              Again, we may well have disagreement over what is best for "the people", but that is the "rub" isn't it?

                Yes, there are many times there is honest disagreement.  That's where compromise is required, but it never seems to happen.  Congress just waits until one party or the other has the strength necessary to get what it wants.

                And there are many times where there can be no honest disagreement, but party politics still rules, and good ideas are disregarded and shut down because they come from the "wrong" party.

                Sorry.  I'm pretty well fed up with the inability of the squabbling children on the hill to run this country and sometimes it shows.

                  I really can't disagree on your point here, Wilderness. That seems to be the way things work, unfortunately.

    Well they want to completely destroy the nation by opening the borders to every person on the planet who can make it here. This way the strongest nation in the history of the world will die, and global oligarchs can finally create the one world satanic government.  We can't forget that one.

      Yes, we want to destroy the nation as best we can. We're gonna take all of your guns away and give them to the illegal immigrants so they can take their rightful land back from you white men. We also hate the flag and religion of any sort so we'll do away with that as well.  Anything anti- American I forgot to list we're planning to do?   tongue

            Hey Spanky Randy, I found some youths who are a whole lot more on top of things than some other persons I could name.

                Everyone, I have an announcement to make on behalf of Spanky Godwin. Randy has come up with a genius idea for how to defeat Donald Trump and the Republicans. He's going to call him 'spanky.'
