Remind me why we need new leadership in the house?

Not even a week in and the house is already doing the following:

About to pass meaningful gun control legislation that 95% of Americans support and will get to watch the republicans kill.

Have a meaningful debate on Medicare for all(Which I do not support as a way to Universal Healthcare but a debate we need) and will strongly imprint our support for reasonable healthcare for all Americans. Not that we need more. We own the issue.

Telling Donnie FU on a his wall.

Getting the oversight cranked into gear starting with providing Mueller all the transcripts which will probably show perjury and perhaps collusion in that perjury with republican members of congress.

Making Climate Change priority again.


I am glad that Nancy has agreed to limit her time to 4 years and I suspect that if we win the presidency she will resign in 2020. And that is very good because we need to allow our very strong bench of youngsters to grow into their potential and gain leadership

But good god, am I glad we have the experienced leadership we have today.

1. Agree; we desperately need experienced leadership right now. Nancy is perfect for this

at this time.

2. Those were my thoughts when everyone was dissing Nancy. We need someone that has mastered

the chess game of Congress. Now is not the time to put someone new in the seat.

3. We have a strong bench of mid-career committee chairs already so the "youngsters" will have to...

adhere to seniority as other have while getting experience and learning procedural in-and-outs of the House.

4. Have to say this once and for all..

 

Being the same age as Ms Pelosi,I fully understand what four more years will feel like. Hey,at our age,we have Great grand kids as well as Grand Kids whom we had to put on the back burner in order to take care of business.

There comes a time to finally pull the pin. And first thing you have to do is,get caught up on family and what life is all about.

When we saw her grand kids and great grand kids lovingly pestering her at the Podium the other day,wow,we know the feeling,and you just can not buy that for all the money in the world.

5. Word is she was going to bow out if Hillary won.

And the temptation to say F it must be strong. But she has all those kids to think of.

But we need her experience. I hope, and expect her to resign in 2020.

8. I can't, because we don't right this moment.

They're connected and smart. We're fine for the moment, they've got this.
