Elections matter, right? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is exercising some of her reclaimed powers as the leader of the House’s Democratic majority. According to NPR, Pelosi has kicked Vice President Mike Pence out of the office space he was gifted by previous Speaker Paul Ryan. Ryan gave the space to Pence as a symbolic gesture of how terrible their union would be for the country as they worked to gut the Affordable Care Act and give tax revenues to the rich. Pence didn’t use the office much.
According to the report, a House Democratic aide confirmed the office assignment change to the media outlet, and said that “Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress.”
