    We finally get rid of the Democrat Paul Ryan. And now the Republicans vote in the same kind of weasel we had before. I see we still have a lot of Rinos left in the party.

    Why would you make a stand without even knowing what's ahead. Has anyone did a background check on the republican leaders to see how compromised they are?

    This strategy reflects the tone deafness of the GOP; this was they did during the entire Obama presidency. People on both sides want to see things getting done. So be it; they are headed for a loss in 2020.

    Yes Kevin...we all know Republicans do not want checks and balances on a Russian- corrupted administration. I think we call that traitorous. Typical GOP..."I want to work with Dems while at the same time be an obstructionist" Confused? Not if you have a brain and awareness.

      +Stephen Dedalus actually they did vote for Trump. He won the popular vote in 30 States which is why he's President. Oh and welcome to our Republic.

      Andreana Calhoun,
      Over three hundred and forty (340) seats is a BLUE WAVE: Almost 40 Seats in the House, 7 Governor State Houses, 26 Majority State Attorneys' Seats, and hundreds of State and Local offices. Red State Nevada is now completely Blue! Red Arizona now has a Democrat Senator! If this isn't a Blue Wave then it is a Republican whopping.

      Stop letting yourself be brainwashed by the likes of CNN and MSNBC. If you watched a
      real news network, instead of the basher networks, they would report all the good Trump
      is doing for the country. But it is your choice to listen to the hate and not be aware of
      all the good going on. This is why we support Trump!!! CNN refused to report the last three
      bills Trump signed. FAKE NEWS IS RIGHT! Your choice.

      +MidScream1 racism, bigotry and segregation is a disease yo
      😂😂I suppose we could go back and forth all day long but you are not going to change me, and im not going to change you so diversity works😂 seriously, all races have good and evil and no one race can claim that it is better than the other. For every transgression you want to attribute to one race, I can attribute to another so its pointless!
      The old saying holds true to this day..."There is good and bad in EVERY race!
