House Dems Usher in the Resistance

The donkey party offers nothing but Trump-hating division and economy-crippling socialism.

In December, the U.S. economy added 312,000 jobs, capping a year of strong economic growth and reaching 2.6 million new jobs in 2018. The bad news has been stock market volatility, for which President Donald Trump blamed Democrats: “As I have stated many times, if the Democrats take over the House or Senate, there will be disruption to the Financial Markets. We won the Senate, they won the House. Things will settle down. They only want to impeach me because they know they can’t win in 2020, too much success!”

Once again, Trump is right on the mark, as was clearly demonstrated by House Democrats on Thursday. Taking over the chamber after their midterm election win, Dems promptly used their new majority to offer nothing but a sequence of anti-Trump legislation and recession-triggering, big-government power grabs.

Cuing the #Resistance, House Socialists under Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) passed a spending bill that does not provide any funding for a border wall. In even more futile gestures, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) introduced articles of impeachment against Trump, while Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) proposed a constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College. Obviously, House Democrats’ legislative agenda is all about promoting themselves and resisting the president.

Where is the Democrat concern over maintaining the surging economy? Where is the proposed legislation that would provide greater protection for Americans by securing the nation’s borders? With all the Demo fearmongering over the supposed danger Trump poses to the nation’s system of governance, where is the legislation that would limit government abuse of power? Where in the Democrats’ legislative agenda is the commitment to promote and protect Americans’ individual liberty as defined by the Constitution?

The fact is, Democrats offer nothing but a hate-Trump platform of anger, division, and Liberty-stifling, economy-destroying socialism. Their concern is promoting anything that gives them greater power and control over the American people.

As Mark Alexander notes, “Unfortunately for all Americans outside the Beltway, blocking the Trump administration’s agenda may get Democrats the recession they want ahead of the 2020 elections. For the next two years, job and income prospects for tens of millions of American workers will fall victim to the Demos’ politically induced recession.”
