Watching the resistance by the Democrats in Congress to anything conservative or anything Donald Trump, you get a picture of where we are headed if the Dems gain in power in Congress. They already use procedures to slow business to a crawl and threaten to do worse if pushed. there is no interest in doing anything to fulfill their obligation to do the nation’s business.
