Other. How about they try their hand at governance, sorry bunch of impotent, anti-American, window-licking socialists that they are.

Harry Reid was infamous for blocking every vote the Republicans sent up. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, feels a little different, eh?

Good grief. If those options listed are their entire agenda, then God help us all.

How about focus on something that actually helps all Americans; not just some specific group or something that further divides us.

Other: Govern with the interest of America and get over the fact that they don't control the White House. Put America first!

I did a search for '116th House accomplishments' and came up with virtually nothing.

They passed the 'Butch Lewis Act' (bi-partisan pension reform bill) in July. Sounds good. Govtrack gives it a 3% chance of actually getting signed into law.

Reagan was able to get things done with Speaker Tip O'Neil. Obama was able to get things done with Speaker John Boehner. As far as I can tell, the 116th Congress has done zip, zero, nada.

They did pass a bi-partisan bill to promote ex-US Army Captain Bob Dole to the rank of Colonel. Woo Hoo!

Now there is really about 1 year left to get anything done. After Labor Day 2020, it will be all about the elections. What do you think the priorities should be in the coming year?
Across-the-board tax cuts- but I know that it won’t happen😂
Making sure that there is good funding for Medicare and Social Security-don’t think that will happen either.
Dems need to get over their fixation on illegals, DACA and refugees- WHO CARES?!!!

I'm with the 75% that believes this Congress should just go on vacation until we elect a Republican Congress.
