1. If Democrats hold the House and win the White House and Senate...

...they need to put priority on fixing a number of things, including the electoral college. Another thing they need to do is pass federal legislation REQUIRING any candidate for federal elective office to release his/her tax returns. They need to strengthen the laws concerning subpoenas of witnesses in House and Senate investigations, so that NO president can EVER AGAIN get away with ignoring and stonewalling those subpoenas, or with instructing his subordinates in the executive branch to ignore them. They need to change the filibuster rules in the Senate so that nobody can ever again do what the turtle has been doing, just ignoring anything the Democrats in the House send to the Senate, or nominees from the president (Merrick Garland). There's a whole bunch of things like that the Democrats need to do to fix the holes in our federal government that the orange con man has exposed. And they should put priority on these legislative fixes. Along with getting the plague under control, of course, and the economic devastation it has caused. There will be SO much to do, but first, of course, we have to get to work winning these elections...
