For those who have not been paying attention to current events, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi showed within a period of less than two hours that Democrats can walk and chew gum at the same time.
First, the Pelosi led Democratic House unveiled two Articles of Impeachment against Donald Trump.
Confined to the events surrounding Ukraine, these articles focus on the President’s abuse of power and his obstruction of the congressional oversight process.
Then, an hour later, the Pelosi led Democratic House proclaimed a deal with the Trump Administration on a new N.A.F.T.A. trade deal between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
This new trade deal, endorsed by the powerful AFL-CIO labor union, now contains better worker, pharmaceutical, and environmental protections the Pelosi led House secured from the Administration in order to ensure House passage.
Within the span of this hour, Nancy Pelosi showed that Democrats can lead on protecting the Constitution from a President consumed with doing anything to get reelected and on advancing critical progressive and trade issues for the American People.
Later this week, the Democratic House will vote on the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act of 2019. H.R. 3 that is designed to lower prescription drug costs.
Readers should be reminded that the Pelosi led House has passed 400 bills this year including those on election security, raising the minimum wage act, and renewing the Violence Against Women Act, that Political Prince of Darkness Enemy of the People Senate Majority Leader Moscow Mitch McConnell has put in a legislative graveyard.
It is time to put away the big lie regurgitated by the Liar in Chief that Democrats are not doing anything for the American People.
It is time for the Obstructionist in Chief Senate McConnell to dig up all those House-passed bills out of the graveyard he built and consider them in the United States Senate.
It is what the American People want.
