Axios Reveals Democrats Already Have 2019 Agenda

Axios Reveals Democrats Already Have 2019 Agenda

Health care, infrastructure are top priorities.

The Democrats continue to ooze confidence that the party will take control of the House of Representatives in November as Axios revealed the House Democrats already have an agenda for 2019 with health care taking center stage.

The House Democrats have planned three packages: lower health care costs, $1 trillion infrastructure, and reforming ethics and lobbying.

Axios provided what people have said about this agenda:

  • “We’re ready from Day 1 to fight for the people,” said an aide involved in the planning. “These priorities took months and months of conversation with members to boil down.”
  • The top Democrats on House committees are prepping to launch oversight hearings and investigations of the Trump administration, and have begun the initial steps of coordinating their opening topics to avoid conflicts and overlaps.
  • Democrats are playing down talk of impeachment. But depending on the contents of Robert Mueller’s report, that could well become a transcendent issue for the new Congress.
  • Democratic leaders have been clear that impeachment isn’t happening unless it’s bipartisan — that Mueller’s findings are definitive, and Republicans voice support for the i-word.

The concentration on health care and infrastructure come from polls, which have shown that those two topics concern voters the most:

  • Health care would be divided into two buckets: cost containment, including reining in premiums, and lowering the cost of prescription drugs.
  • The $1 trillion in infrastructure spending would be sold as a way to boost jobs and wages.

Ethics have come to the forefront due to the #MeToo movement, which has led to the outing of sexual assault and sexual harassment accusations among those in Congress. The Washington Post reported that “Congress’ Office of Compliance has paid more than $17 million for 264 settlements and awards to federal employees for violations of various employment rules” since 1997. This includes sexual harassment.

The House Democrats have also promised to make “sweeping lobbying reform” and “change some of their in-house rules.” Pelosi wants to revive the “pay-go” system she had when she served as speaker. This requires “new spending be paid for by budge cuts or revenue offsets.”

House Republicans have started to prepare for a possible switch in November. Axios reported last week that a spreadsheet containing lists of possible investigations Democrats may initiate has found its way around Republican offices and the leadership.

The list also includes “more than 100 formal requests from House Democrats this Congress, spanning nearly every committee.” It has “requests for administration officials to be grilled by committee staff, requests for hearings to obtain sworn testimony, efforts to seize communications about controversial policies and personnel decisions, and subpoena threats.”

Basically, it will “turn the Trump White House into a 24/7 legal defense operation.” Lawyers close to the White House told Axios that “the Trump administration is nowhere near prepared for the investigatory onslaught that awaits them, and they consider it among the greatest threats to his presidency.”

The Democrats need to flip 24 Republican seats and hold the 194 seats they already have.

Lawyers close to the White House . . .

Oh goody, more anonymous sources. And people keep falling for this rubbish, as Lucy jerks the football again.

Healthcare? Didn’t they fuck that up enough when Jugears was in office?

Sounds like Nancy’s measuring the drapes again…..kinda like Felonia planning on replacing the rug in the Oval Office–a nice idea but way too early. After all, has Nate Silver given Nancy a 98% chance of regaining the Speakership?

Like they counted on Hitlery getting elected in ’16, they are making all these grand plans, contingent on them wresting control of one or both houses from R’s in Nov.

I had pretty much resigned myself to HRC getting in, via cheating, lying and litigating if necessary. The had Jill Stein try do her dirty work (who didn’t have a snowball’s chance herself), to no avail. They are STILL TALKING ABOUT somehow invalidating the election, and installing Hillery to her rightful place on the throne. Yeah – you want to talk about some violence in the streets?

My thoughts are – if they DO NOT take over either house – which, despite the appearance of it being close, like it or not – THERE IS TOO MUCH WINNING GOING ON, and the people know that will come to a screeching halt (if not turn into grinding obstruction).

And the street-level violence we’ve seen from Soros/Steyr funded NGO’s (antifa/blm/et al), will ratchet up to a level where THE TROOPS WILL HAVE TO BE SENT IN – creating the very police state they CLAIM TO BE AGAINST (ever hear of “self fulfilling prophecy”?) – which IS PART OF THE PLAN. Anarchy, is the step before socialism if it can’t be snuck in by peaceful means at the ballot box. If you can’t CHANGE the system, then BREAK IT – and pray the desired change comes after the smoke clears (if it EVER CLEARS).

I WANT the left to be “over-confident”, this is where they ALWAYS SCREW THEMSELVES. Their bat-chit craziness is pushing people that aren’t too stoned on legalized marijuana (also part of the plan – get everyone so high, they don’t care anymore) to OUR SIDE. They SEE what DJT is doing is WORKING – and it’s FOR AMERICA FIRST.

This mid-term, is turing into the THE MOST PIVOTAL ELECTION OF MY LIFETIME. I WILL BE taking time off work to campaign for DeSantis (jesus dude, PLEASE DON’T SAY MONKEY AGAIN), because Gillum will DESTROY FLORIDA and I really don’t feel like uprooting myself to Texas (and having to get a j-j-j-j-j-job, I like having my own business). Scott (as polarized as he is), HAS TO BEAT NELSON.

THIS NOVEMBER REALLY IS FOR ALL THE MARBLES. It’s for OUR SECURITY (borders/immigration), for our RIGHTS (free speech, the right to self defense, the right to not be spied on & persecuted by our own government for political purposes).

If we have too much confidence we’re going to win (or lose), and STAY HOME (instead of standing in line and voting) WE WILL LOSE.

If the dems were SMART (yeah, right) – they’d STFU for ’18, and start FINDING A CLEAN CANDIDATE FOR ’20 – because if they don’t win either house – they are probably DONE FOR GOOD.

And PLEASE DEAR GOD – let’s start CHARGING THE CRIMINALS. TICK TOCK on the Statute of Limitations. CHARGE EM NOW – sort it out later.

How are they planning to get any of those to 60 votes in the Senate and the President’s signature?

Oh, right, they’re planning to pass awful bills they haven’t even read and then run on “the won’t let us do great things!” in 2020…

Democrats suffered one of the largest shellackings in electoral history when they f’d up healthcare and blew their trillion dollar “stimulus” propping up unions and padding democrat donors pockets

Lower health care costs (which they raised with Obamacare)

$1 trillion infrastructure (but is it “shovel ready?”)

and reforming ethics and lobbying. (I don’t even know where to start with this. This is the same party that can’t get rid of Pelosi because of her fundraising ability. Hillary took millions in donations from Arab nations)

To believe Democrats were sincere about any of this, you would have to have brain damage.

Imagine my surprise to learn that the Democrat strategy continues to be to steal from me to give free stuff to the non-taxpayers! You the woman, Nancy!

As a dog returneth to his vomit.

Get ready for massive Democrat voter fraud in the coming two months.

Get out and vote.

So their 3 point platform is 1) hate Trump, 2) really hate Trump and 3) still hate Trump.
