435 Members in the House of Representatives, yet only 20 can wreck the process.

If the minority can't get what it wants it throws monkey wrenches into the machinery of the government. Republicans aren't worth a damn at carrying out the people's business, but they are good at making messes. I just wonder how this will all end up being Biden's, Obama's and/or the Clinton's faults.

Does anyone know where the Clintons are tonight?????????

If McCarthy and his supporters really wanted to move things along, they could and would. But they don't and won't. Because they would rather have everything wrecked than work together with Democrats in any manner.
