'In the last of his major national addresses on the Democrat-created border impasse, the president offered the opposing party big wins on immigration. In exchange, he asked for common sense border security measures.

That’s how serious the president was.'

Exerpts from the article by @Harlan:

'But as she did with every offer from him, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) scornfully rejected President Trump’s attempt at compromise.

This time she did it before he even spoke.'
'As the effective leader of one of the country’s major parties, that’s her right.

But she can’t then claim to be interested in compromise or solutions.'

(1) Let’s take a quick dig into government spending to see if that wall makes more sense than some of our other spending habits. #Schumer #SpeakerPelosi #BuildTheDamnWallNow
(2) Washington DC spends $92 billion on corporate welfare compared to $71 billion on homeland security. Interesting....
(3) Washington DC spends $25 billion every year maintaining unused or empty federal properties. Sound like we found a great place to put our homeless population.

Not going to lie -- I am teary eyed and smiling simultaneously hearing the awesome @RepJeffries nominate the name of the formidable @NancyPelosi to be the Speaker of the House. @TeamPelosi
#SpeakerPelosi #ImWithNancy #DemsTakeTheHouse
FYI I stayed up all night to accommodate work and time zone differences so I could watch the new House Democratic Majority take power.
Hey Dems, keep us pumped by letting @RepJeffries announce policy initiatives the same way the nominated Pelosi.

Today is a good day to remind every American that CONGRESS is supposed to be the most powerful branch of government, not a slave to a demagogic president's every whim. #116thCongress #SpeakerPelosi
Indeed, there was a time period in US history when the Speaker of the House was about to become the leader-in-all-but-name of the US government with the President just a figurehead; a series of "strong" Presidents and weak Speakers consolidated power in the Executive, however.
President Trump is a very weak leader. He's whimsical, ignorant and unfocused.

Congress over the past two years could have increased its power at the expense of the Executive if it so choose; Congressional Republican leaders, however, instead chose to be even weaker than Trump.

Really? Because she''s handing key positions on the best committees to freshmen from the Progressive Caucus.

Indeed some are being given positions more significant than their freshman status normally allows.

Nevermind that @NancyPelosi very much wants to arm the incoming class with every tool and weapon she knows of to legally battle Trump or any who might follow him, she understands optics and politics too well to do even half of what you say.

Knowing all of these things, and having watched #SpeakerPelosi in action, in real time, over the years she has come to gain not only my respect and admiration, but also my real affection.

Now, define things as you will but I am a bona fide progressive.
