The House lived up to their promise of honoring 911 responders and survivors by passing legislation to renew the 911 victims fund.  Now, it’s up to Senate to do the same.  See, they are working!

  1. THE DEMS CAN only do what McConnell will allow, but Stateswise they are doing plenty. I cannot believe how trumpers cut off their noses to spite their faces.

    • They are overcome by hate for others and that gives them great internal power. As long as someone else suffers more than they will they are okay with it. This is why we see the atrocities at the border.

  2. Don’t see why all these investigations take so long. Esp on people that do not work there anymore. Lets get to trump, jared, ivanka , eric miller, bill barr and saddle Trump with his benghazi and email server hearings
    ( all witch hunts against Hillary). Lets charge some folks and demonstrate how there is no accountability in that admin by showing Barr refuse to charge anyone including himself or him outright dismissing their criminal conduct.
