🔗 Even With a Slim Majority the GOPs Plan is Insane

Republicans Barely Won the House. Now Can They Run It? - The New York Times

The only results that interest many in the House majority are those that inflict political pain on Mr. Biden and congressional Democrats, as demanded by their MAGA constituents. In a closed-door meeting of Republicans on Monday, right-wing lawmakers including Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia extracted a promise that their leaders would investigate Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Justice Department for their treatment of defendants jailed in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

So much of election reporting just follows the polls and the horse race which means that what candidates actually support becomes a secondary issue. However, now that the election is over the consequences will quickly be felt by many who really have no idea what they voted for. The GOP has plans to literally destroy the global economy if the Democrats don’t agree to tax cuts and broad cuts to Medicare and Social Security. This is on top of insane investigations we are about to see. Just in this piece from the Times they say they are going to investigate Pelosi and the DOJ for January 6th. They let this be known during the election, but good luck finding out that information if you are not extremely plugged in.
