It appears that over the years congress has marginalized itself, ceding power to the executive branch and devolving into partisan bickering on near every issue.
It’s hard to imagine that Nancy Pelosi and a Democrat controlled House will give President Trump a win by signing the new NAFTA. Maybe under intense pressure would they even consider it – that is how bad things have gotten in the hallowed halls of our nation’s capital.
Nancy Pelosi is not happy with Bill Barr and just issued a scathing attack on his character.
“The Department of Justice’s reported investigation of the auto companies is frivolous and pretextual, and seeks to weaponize law enforcement for partisan political purposes to advance the Trump Administration’s toxic special interest agenda.” Pelosi wrote.
“California’s agreement with four leading automakers to strengthen fuel emissions standards is in support of a legitimate public interest goal: keeping our families safe and safeguarding our clean air for future generations,” she continued.
“Far from hindering healthy competition, California’s agreement promotes a race-to-the-top among automakers to meet the new emission standards, benefiting consumers, strengthening our economy and protecting our environment.”
“The Department of Justice must end this sham investigation and return to policing actual anticompetitive conduct,” said Pelosi.
“House Democrats stand with California and the 13 states and District of Columbia that join it in setting strong, effective emissions standards to fight for a sustainable, clean energy future for our children and grandchildren to grow and thrive.”
“We will not let the Trump Administration’s dangerous agenda prevent us from achieving success in this critical mission,” Nancy Pelosi concluded.
