The House is supposed to represent the people of this country.
At the present time, they do not. They won their elections in 2010 that gave them a huge majority but they do not represent the people and they never have. They represent a small percentage of the wealthy class and nothing more. They resent the common folks. But they have been able to pull the wool over enough people's eyes to control the House and, in effect, control the purse strings of our government.
The number one goal of the Democratic Party, from this day forward, should be to take back the House for the People. They are holding the middle class hostage. They are holding our entire country hostage with their extreme right-wing agenda.
If truth was actually weighed, the House may be more important to our progress as a country than the White House? Yes, the President can veto bills but the vetoes can be over-ridden. If there is nothing passed, the President is frozen out. So, it is arguable that the House of Representatives is vital for the general welfare of the people.
It is in the wrong hands and we need to focus on correcting that problem every chance we get. They deceived the voters and effectively, took control of our government. A right-wing President is much less dangerous than a right-wing Congress.
