House of Representative’s Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been out of power for a while, so when she takes power, she really takes power. This was evident in her changes to the House rules. When Pelosi and the democrats took over the House in early January, she didn’t waste any time in changing the rules. The House, of course, oversees all “spending bills.” That is, they control how much money the government can spend of the taxpayer’s money. One rule Pelosi immediately instituted allows the new, liberal House majority to make debt limit increases unlimited, which means they will spend without any regard for the debt piling up for your children and grandchildren who will have to pay it. Our national debt is already 22 TRILLION dollars.
Another new rule Pelosi made will eliminate the requirement that bills, such as the extreme “Green New Deal” proposal, be analyzed for how they will affect the economy. It’s as if Speaker Pelosi learned nothing from the last ten years, where regulations and excessive government spending stifled economic freedom and growth. Congressional liberals want to throw accountability out the window so they can spend and regulate outrageously, without checks on their power. Hold on to your wallet for the next two years; Pelosi intends to empty it.
