During the 2016 presidential election, it was quite apparent Americans on both sides were sick and tired of business as usual.
However, that is exactly what Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings is saying he wants, as he spoke up in support of Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the House should the Dems take back the majority.
The Old Guard
The one thing we have seen time and again in the Democrat party is that they will protect their old guard no matter what.
While Americans in this country told them loud and clear they want change, they continue to ram the same old talking points down our throats.
One of the biggest points of focus during the election was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
She is clearly no longer in touch with the modern American, yet she remains in charge.
To hear Cummings, Pelosi has earned that position for as long as she wants it.
“I expect Nancy Pelosi will be speaker, and I believe that she will speaker until she decides to leave,” Cummings stated.
“I think that she is a phenomenal speaker,” he continued. “She knows the members. I can’t think of anybody in the House that could have seen through the passage of something like the Affordable Care Act.”
That thinking is not, however, necessarily supported throughout the entire Democrat party.
Last year, Rep. Kathleen Rice, a Democrat out of New York, called for a leadership change, starting with the replacement of Pelosi as the Minority Speaker.
If any conservatives doubt the need for a strong showing at mid-terms, just think of the repercussions if Democrats gain the majority.
In Congress, Pelosi would likely become the Speaker of the House.
Cummings would probably take over the House Oversight Committee.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) would more than likely take over the House Judiciary Committee.
Just let all that sink in, then decide if you are going to get off your couch and vote come November, something more than 60 percent of Americans did NOT do during the 2014 mid-term elections.
