Republican lost the House in 2018 due to reactions to Donald Trump and the overhanging Mueller Russia investigation. In 2020 Republicans lost the Presidency to Joe Biden in a hotly disputed election result fraught with voter fraud allegations. After a runoff of 2 seats in Georgia in January, 2021, Republicans lost the Senate (50-50). With the Presidency and both houses of Congress now lost, concerns over the integrity of our elections, and Democrats threatening to change election laws, abolish the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court, Republicans fear for the future of the country that they will never win another election. The previous decade, Republicans won the House in 2010 mid-term election, retaining the House in 2012 and claiming the Senate in the 2014 mid-terms. The Republicans continued their climb back to power in 2016 by retaining the House and Senate and adding the Presidency as Donald Trump won a resounding electoral college victory claiming 30 states. Though he lost the popular vote, President Trump moved into 2017 with a populist victory, a conservative agenda and control of the Congress to roll back President Obama's liberal policies.

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.
