In 2020, Democrat Joe Biden & Kamala Harris captured the Presidency and Vice Presidency in a hotly debated result fraught with voter fraud allegations. The Democrats won back the Senate (50-50) with 2 victories in runoff elections in Georgia in January. With both Houses of Congress and the Presidency, the Democrat agenda is ready to be unleashed on the populace beginning inauguration day, January 20, 2021. During the previous decade, the Democrat Party lost the House in 2010, Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections and President Obama's effectiveness ratings continued to decline. In 2016 they lost the Presidency to Republican Donald Trump. Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, failed to retain the White House with a similar coalition of young people, women and minority voters that swept Barack Obama into office in 2008. Yet the coalition did not show up in the force needed. The Democrat candidate won the popular vote in reliably blue states (California, Washington, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, etc) as a result of overwhelming majorities in major coastal metropolitan areas like LA, SF, Seattle, NYC, Boston, Washington DC). They failed miserably in the heartland and in other blue states in the rust belt (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin) and lost a total of 30 states giving a landslide electoral college victory to the Republican candidate. The Democrats have lost over 1,000 seats at the national, state and local levels nationwide in the past 7 years. In 2018 Democrats took back the House over negative reactions to Donald Trump & the Russian Investigation hovering over the political landscape.

The Government is Funded through Dec. 16

from The Gray Area:

On Friday, Congress passed a continuing resolution (CR) to maintain current levels of federal funding through December 16. As a result, Congress must now pass a spending bill before that December deadline to prevent the government from shutting down. With elections fast approaching in November, this spending bill will be presented after the midterm elections, but before the new Congress takes office. This “lame-duck” legislating (legislating after elections but before the newly elected take office) has historically ended in absurd spending bills that do not reflect the will of the people. When that December deadline arrives, Congress should NOT pass an omnibus spending bill. An omnibus would allow Democrats to lock in Biden’s failed inflation agenda & spending through 2023. It would be better to pass another short CR until January, when the new Congress is sworn-in. The Congressmen elected by voters in November should be the ones to set the agenda for 2023. For a deeper dive, read the latest from Heritage Action on government funding.
