What is the number one issue on the minds of American voters a few weeks before the November elections? According to a Pew Research poll posted on 13 August 2020, it’s the economy, say 79% of the people.
A significant body of Democrat lawmakers know this fact to be true and are pushing Pelosi to pass a coronavirus relief bill.
Multiple House Democrats expressed anxiety and frustration Tuesday about the prospect of adjourning for the election without a new coronavirus relief bill, with one vulnerable House Democrat saying on a private call with leadership that she wanted to do her “g-d job” and deliver a deal for her constituents.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced on a conference call with House Democrats on Tuesday morning that the House would remain in session until a new agreement is struck, saying, “We have to stay here until we have a bill,” according to Democratic aides.
But within hours, Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) clarified that lawmakers would not actually remain in Washington beyond their scheduled recess date of Oct. 2, and instead would be required to be on call in case they must return. This is the same arrangement lawmakers have worked under for more than a month without any progress. White House officials have remained open to a deal but have not expressed an urgency to make concessions.The Washington Post 15 Sep 2020 | Frustrated House Democrats push for action on new economic relief bill
Those frustrated House Democrats and President Trump share a common goal of providing relief to hurting American workers but Nancy Pelosi and her socialist ‘squad’ are hell-bent on obstructing President Trump in the exercise of his constitutional duty to replace Justice Ginsburg.
Pelosi and her socialist cohorts blame Republican senators and the president for no progress on a relief bill but this is far from true. In fact, a bipartisan group of moderate House lawmakers have a bill that can pass the Senate.
The House of Representatives has absolutely no authority or oversight of Supreme Court appointments. This is the jurisdiction of the President who appoints and the Senate that consents. For reference: The U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 2
I was a solid Democrat who supported and campaigned for the election of Jimmy Carter to the presidency. The Carter presidency was disastrous to our economy, our national prestige, and our national security. He compromised out national security in several ways, particularly giving away our Panama Canal. The unrealistic nationwide 55 MPH speed limit caused explosive growth in the CB radio industry and it also created explosive growth in speeding tickets. The 55 MPH speed limit works okay in New Jersey and Carter’s Georgia, I suppose, but it did not work okay for Texans and residents of other western states.
In 1980, I became a Republican voter. The landslide election of Ronald Reagan included my vote. I walked away from the Democratic Party, never to vote for a Democrat candidate again, except for Congressman Ralph M. Hall. In recent history, the majority vote has changed substantially from Democrat to Republican here in the Fourth Congressional District of Texas.
As I go about my temporary duty as a voter registrar, I sense a more significant landslide victory for President Trump.
