GOP loads up lame-duck agenda as House control teeters

Republican lawmakers are packing their agenda for the lame-duck session after the Nov. 6 elections, recognizing it could be their last shot for at least two years to pass legislation under unified GOP control of Congress.

Their top priorities include spending legislation, the farm bill, a package to extend expiring tax breaks, criminal justice reform, reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act and passing the Jobs Act 3.0, which is intended to spur capital formation.

Also high on the to-do list is a batch of executive and judicial branch nominees — including 36 federal District Court and three circuit court judges.

Asked about the agenda for December, Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas) said, “Nominations, more nominations.”

1. 100% resistance is now required

 

for all Republican bills after the midterms.

Delay, delay, delay until time runs out. Let the Republicans suck up their inevitable loss on both ends.

Republicans are not human beings and should be treated like dirt.
