Nancy ....start swinging your damn purse!!!

We will have a Dem president & House. McConnell, as promised, will stop everything dead in its tracks in the Senate. If Pelosi doesn't start seriously using the power of the purse as a sledge hammer, we will have 4 years of no progress. It's, basically, the only power we have...not in the mood for letting McConnell run the show again😠

Mitt Romney (who voted for impeachment) will pioneer a group of 8, 10 or 12 with equal number of Republican and Democratic Senators (Tim Kaine is the most likely leader on our side). This group will undertake to negotiate compromises with Speaker Pelosi. This "Gang of 10" will function like other gangs to break up intransigent back log by the Republican Leader.
