Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is having a hard time trying to explain the first 100 days of a Democrat controlled House of Representatives.
Despite flaunting their majority control, Democrats haven’t really been able to accomplish anything since taking over the House.
They’ve approved bill on campaign finance and gun control, but both those initiatives will die out in the Senate.
They tried to override Trump’s national emergency declaration, but couldn’t gather the votes needed to overturn his veto.
In fact, many of what has been passed by the House are non-binding resolutions that hardly influence U.S. politics, like the watered-down bill that was intended to condemn anti-Semitism.
All this seems lost on Pelosi who during an interview on “60 Minutes” avoided answering questions about low productivity by saying how “awesome” she is at her job.
“The power of the speaker is to set the agenda. We didn’t have a speaker who would bring a gun bill to the floor. We didn’t have a speaker who would bring a Dreamer’s issue to the floor. We do now, and that’s a very big difference. The power of the speaker is awesome. Awesome.,” Pelosi said.
The only thing “awesome” about Pelosi and the House she presides over is how little they’ve managed to impact Trump’s policies despite fighting him at every turn.
