    John Boehner and Mitch McConnell: Now We Can Get Congress Going - WSJ - WSJ

    The Bullet points:

    Our priorities in the 114th Congress will be your priorities. That means addressing head-on many of the most pressing challenges facing the country, including:

    • The insanely complex tax code that is driving American jobs overseas;

    • Health costs that continue to rise under a hopelessly flawed law that Americans have never supported;

    • A savage global terrorist threat that seeks to wage war on every American;

    • An education system that denies choice to parents and denies a good education to too many children;

    • Excessive regulations and frivolous lawsuits that are driving up costs for families and preventing the economy from growing;

    • An antiquated government bureaucracy ill-equipped to serve a citizenry facing 21st-century challenges, from disease control to caring for veterans;

    • A national debt that has Americans stealing from their children and grandchildren, robbing them of benefits that they will never see and leaving them with burdens that will be nearly impossible to repay.

    Damn, JM. You're making it easy for 'em. They can't be bothered to look because they're desperately baiting. It shouldn't be such a mystery for 'em.

    It was a useful post. A dramatic juxtaposition to your posting.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I could pick this list apart and Im not a Democrat liberal.

    I stopped listening to anybody promising to reform the tax code a long time ago.
    To parapharase MArk Twain. Everybody talks about it but nobody does anything about it.

    What's 'hopelessly flawed ' about the health care law? I think it's time for Republicans to get honest and admit that it is better than many alternatives.And that it relies heavily on the free market.

    When Republicans moan about 'excessive regulations' strangling I really wish they would be specific. Which ones?

    You're going to fix the antiquated govt. bureaucracy? ( groan-at least they didn't say they were going to cut fraud waste and abuse.) details, details.

    Well-how exactly are you going to tackle that national debt problem?

    Well, when the other side is being defiantly ignorant it's good to call them on it.

    It's the agenda, sorry if you don't like it. Will you now vote Democrat?

    But then with some people it's all a catch 22. Romney released a detailed agenda in 2012 and was excoriated by both sides for being too detailed.

    Re: GOP seizes Senate

    Nancy Pelosi vows to stay on as leader - Washington Times!

    See how the Dems double-down now by keeping on their winning leadership, that has done so well by them. Frankly I'd like to see Boehner go.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    No mention of the border or immigration reform, though that may have been mentioned in the article, but that is a very, very positive 'to do' list!
