Democrats aren't powerless against Republican efforts to block Russian Federation probe

Democrats aren't powerless against Republican efforts to block Russian Federation probe

Senator Chuck Schumer of NY, the Senate Democratic leader, suggested real cooperation would require a wholesale attitude adjustment on the part of Republicans and Mr. Trump. There were marches and demonstrations, some of which seemed to have an impact, like stopping the Senate from outright repealing Obamacare. The 2017 special elections performance, the respective Virginia and New Jersey statewide wins, President Trump's and the Republican Congress' poor approval ratings, and a new administration's first midterm woes are largely inconsequential in forecasting what voters will do a little over 10 months from now.

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Legislative Director Marc Short will meet with Republican and Democratic leaders of Congress today at the Capitol, said Hogan Gidley, a White House spokesman.

Eager to reassert their longtime influence on North Carolina politics, the Democrats already have already fielded an unusually large pool of candidates for 100 seats in the 170-member bicameral legislature.

Nevertheless, polls show the tax cuts are unpopular among 55 percent of Americans who fear it will sharply reduce tax revenues that will worsen the nation's $15 trillion debt and force spending cuts in social programs like Social Security and Medicare. "There's zero reason to pick a fight on any of those in an election year".

If you think nothing could be stranger than the political year we have just experienced, just wait until this year. According to the Hill, "Bredesen won his first term as governor in 2002 and handily won reelection in 2006 with 69 percent of the vote, winning every county in Tennessee".

As 2017 closes, nearly all signs point toward big Democratic gains next year, largely driven by President Trump's widespread unpopularity.

That's where the test will take place.


No, Tennessee isn't normally a state you would turn to for a Democratic pick-up, but this is no normal year.

To inform your betting, it's worth weighing the efforts of post-2016 national groups. Some targeted districts are in our neighborhood, and Swing Left volunteers have sent eager anti-Trumpers to canvas in moderate or Republican areas on Long Island and Staten Island. So we've got a chance here to deliver some fatal blows to really bad actors in 2018. "The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism". Will anger about DC filter to other elections and primaries here? Now they have a great future, and it's just beginning, "Trump wrote from his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida". Securing the USA border and figuring out how to normalize the status of "the 10 million to 15 million undocumented immigrants" already here - "who, let's be honest, will not and should not be forcibly removed" - are the two biggest challenges, they add, and "when prioritizing the immigration problems we face, the case of 200,000 Salvadorans who accepted our invitation to live and work here legally would not even make a Top 10 list".

Hunter said he voted for the plan because "it's good for most states".

But the goals of House Republicans may have to take a back seat to the Senate, where the votes of some Democrats will be needed to approve a budget and prevent a government shutdown.

Trump received only a third of the vote in NY in 2016 and polls show his popularity continues to slide. What will be the result of the organizing and protesting?

Co-founder Lorie Honor says they'll be holding a "speed dating forum" with all the candidates (there are already multiple) and endorse closer to the primary. Unfortunately for them, only two seats appear ripe for conversion, one in Florida and the other in New Jersey, while 21 look to be either safely or likely Republican.

"If the investigation gets wound up too quickly, the minority report would be largely about outstanding questions that were never examined", Himes told me, though he stressed that he hopes this does not happen. Either way, it'll be the story of the year.
