.@repmarkpocan says if @SpeakerVos “does get too clever … I’ll come back from D.C and do what I have to.”

Vos and WI Republicans have talked about limiting some executive powers before @Tony4WI takes office. Pocan and Vos are in opposite parties, but are friends.
.@repmarkpocan names priorities for House Democrats:

🔸Access to health care/prescription drug pricing
🔸Minimum wage
🔸Election/campaign finance/ethics reform
.@repmarkpocan says @NancyPelosi committed to give more committee representation to Progressive Caucus. “I am waiting to have a personal conversation with her before I announce any decision … I would say the odds are that Nancy Pelosi is the next Speaker at this point.”
.@repmarkpocan on difference between Freedom Caucus and Progressive Caucus: "They were a caucus of saying no. We’re largely a caucus of saying yes."
.@repmarkpocan on impeachment: Waiting for Mueller report, “trying to be patient.”

“If the president did nothing and there’s nothing to show, then let it run its course.”
.@repmarkpocan on Trump response to murder of Jamal Khashoggi: "You need to have a stronger response than the Crown Prince being the BFF of Jared Kushner. It’s our moral obligation as a nation to do more, and I don’t know if this president will."
.@repmarkpocan says he still believes ICE should be abolished, but majority of House Democrats aren't quite there. He expects focus will instead be on detention beds, family separation policies.
.@repmarkpocan discusses Wisconsin legislative Republicans' plans to limit incoming Dem governor's powers: "Robin’s a better person than what he’s putting out there and I hope he has a serious reflection over Thanksgiving." Says he and @SpeakerVos "have been texting" a bit.
.@repmarkpocan on potential lame-duck proposals from @SpeakerVos: "Robin is very smart. He’s always playing three moves ahead of most of the other people in the room, and I think a lot of this could still be about gerrymandering and redistricting. I’m very concerned."
