    Let’s spend weeks having committee hearings. It reminds me of the “grillings” of the Wall Street bankers and the car company executives: a lot of posturing and blowing smoke. In the end, no conclusions, and no agenda for reform. A lot of wasted time and taxpayer dollars.

    As long as all those taxpayer dollars end up in the pockets of the people who paid their baksheesh, all’s well that ends well.

    Well, the Republicans have to do SOMETHING to distract the voters from remembering all the money they wasted causing the shutdown, only to end up getting NOTHING for it!
    Not to mention the Millions and Millions of $$ they have wasted in voting 44 times to overturn the ACA, when they knew they had NO chance of it happening…

    These hearings will come to no conclusion just like all hearings under this administration. No one on the democrat side is allowed to tell the truth about anything , and it starts at the top!

    “…hearings came to no conclusion…under his administration…” because there was nothing to find, other than another republican witch hunt.

    TRUIST said “Bigger question is who profits from keeping our agencies in limbo and who stalls the funding to correct the problem?”

    You think the problem with healthcare.gov is lack of funding??? Incredible. They should be rebating money back to us because their product doesn’t work.

    You suffer from the typical liberal mindset: If something doesn’t work, just throw more money at it; that fixes everything.

    Mob rule was never the intent of the constitution! No matter how many times the idiot constitutional scholar Obama says it “democracy” does not appear in it! We are a republic! Not a mob rule like Obama supported in Egypt! The HOUSE represents the People! Harry Reid should support States rights! Not be Obama’s Party lap dog! Obama should look out for what is best for our Country, not his failed legacy of Obamacare!

    Harley, the Senate represents the people just as much as the House does. They are elected differently, their terms are longer and their rules are different, but the Constitution grants them equal status. Just because you side with the House Majority and the Senate can’t be gerrymandered doesn’t make the Senate any less representative.

    “The House of Representatives is often referred to as “The People’s House” because its members represent the smallest unit of the population. The typical House district encompasses approximately 600,000 people. Moreover, with re-election every two years, members tend to spend a great deal of time in the district tending to their constituents.

    It is often the case that constituents in need turn to their representative for assistance, whether in finding a lost Social Security check, helping a son or daughter get into a military academy, or navigating the federal bureaucracy. Not surprisingly, most members specialize in constituency casework, with the good ones having elevated it to an art form. Over the course of their careers, many members will come to know thousands of their constituents by name — a surefire way to guarantee a long tenure in the House!

    This is by design. The two-year terms, smaller districts, and direct election by the people were intended to make the House a populist institution where minority interests give way to majority passions. In fact, until the passage of the Seventeenth Amendment, which called for direct election of U.S. senators, the House of Representatives was the only branch of the federal government elected directly by the people.”


    The People’s House

    And the 17th Amendment should be repealed.

    The Medicare Part D rollout had lots of problems too.
    In that case, the Republicans called for people to be patient and give the government time to work out the kinks.
    I wonder what the difference is now?

    I guess this is Civics 201 time.
    NO! Sorry but NO!
    wrong answer.
    Originally Senators were appointed by the State! Somehow by State rules, they determined who and why to send. but it was for the State to decide. The people were to vote on people who were in turn to appoint someone to represent the people of the State. but the Senate was where a State’s power was to be. the People had elected other people to represent them in the house. but separation of power with checks and balances put in place for someone to look after what was best for the State. That was the Senate! But Today? well not so much. And that is part in part of why the Government was shut down! Obama sent out an edict that he would not do x y and z so don’t bother. The Senate party lap dog Reid looked out for what was best for his party and not his State and did not allow a vote on what the house passed!

    Harley, I wasn’t talking about what used to be. I was talking about the last 100 years. You may not like the 17th Amendment, but it is the law. And when I wrote to them with an issue a few years ago, I got a response from the offices of both Senators, and nothing, not even an acknowledgement, from my House Representative. I guess I didn’t fit the gerrymandered profile.
