Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) admitted that Republicans blocked expanded healthcare for veterans because they were mad at Majority Leader Schumer.
Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) where he blasted Republicans for fearing and not wanting to know the truth about Trump and Ukraine.
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is warning that Mitch McConnell is plotting the most rushed and unfair impeachment trial in history.
Trump dropped his demand that all investigations must end before he will work with Democrats during his meeting Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer.
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday lambasted Donald Trump’s pathetic statement in his State of the Union (SOTU) address that Democrats would have to stop the investigations into his administration. The president said this was a precondition for bipartisan cooperation and getting any legislation passed.
Democrats in the U.S. Senate are planning to stop the consideration of all non-shutdown legislation on the floor of the Senate until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans allow a vote on spending bills passed by the House last week.
If traditional Democrats think the new Congress will be business as usual they better think again. The resurgent left-wing of the party is in no mood to compromise or to forego the ideals of their progressive agenda. They believe that their intense grass-roots activism led to the Democrats taking back control of the House, and they want to make sure Democratic congressional leaders listen to them as we move forward into a new year and a new era in Washington.
In just six days Democrats will control the U.S. House of Representatives, at which time they will probably make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House, arguably the second most powerful position in Washington.
Donald Trump is already losing his shutdown battle with Democrats. After his return from Iraq today he immediately began tweeting desperately, threatening to hold Democratic voters hostage until he gets funding for his border wall with Mexico. But two new polls show that his position is very unpopular.
Democratic leaders of Congress blasted President Donald Trump yesterday for “plunging the country into chaos.” Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) issued a statement expressing their concerns about Trump’s behavior that have caused a drop in the stock markets and a government shutdown.
On Monday they contacted the White House, asking that the president back off his threat of a partial shutdown if he doesn’t get funding for his border wall. If he doesn’t, hundreds of thousands of federal workers will stop receiving paychecks by the end of this week.
Everyone knows that Donald Trump will try to blame Democrats if he shuts down the U.S. government. But Democratic leaders in Congress are having none of it.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement Monday letting the world know the truth. They wrote:
If there is going to be an infrastructure “new deal” in the U.S. Congress it is going to have to be a green one. Already newly-elected Democrats are proposing the idea of a “Green New Deal” as one of the top priorities for the new Congress after it convenes in January.
Senator Charles Schumer of New York, the Senate Minority Leader, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, House Minority Leader, co-authored a letter that they sent to President Trump on Thursday demanding that he immediately take steps to reunite the families whose children were taken from them at the U.S.-Mexico border under the president’s zero tolerance immigration policy.
When he’s not bragging about crowd sizes and his great accomplishments as president Donald Trump likes to attack Democrats and immigrants. He was up early Thursday morning on Twitter writing about all of these things, and even took aim at the constitutional right to due process under the law.
Many Americans are hoping that this November’s midterm elections will result in what is being called a ‘Blue Wave’ that would sweep into power so many Democrats in Congress that they would take back control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Newt Gingrich, who attacked the FBI’s recent raid of Trump attorney Michael Cohen, is now being attacked himself for his ridiculous and unpatriotic comments. In a television interview on Fox News Gingrich directly compared the United States’ top law enforcement agency to both Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin (who killed 20 million people) and the Nazis’ secret police force, the Gestapo.
The Democrats see the issue as one that is vital to their electoral strength. They believe the question will frighten census respondents who think that they might be deported by the Trump Administration. And of course, they believe the Republicans are doing this solely to give themselves more political power.
