Democrats are making clear that changes are coming to the scope of activities on Capitol Hill. For example, reining in “skyrocketing” prescription prices, investigating “security clearances” vetted for members of the Trump administration, and dealing with “voter suppression” issues take top billing. To sum up the new agenda: retribution, retribution, retribution. Meanwhile, real issues, such as border security, economic development, and defense, will curiously be ignored…right up until voters begin voting in the 2020 primaries. Good luck with all that, Dems.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
WASHINGTON — Under the leadership of successive GOP chairmen Darrell Issa (Calif.), Jason Chaffetz (Utah) and Trey Gowdy (S.C.) the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee launched high-profile investigations into Operation Fast and Furious, the Benghazi attack, the Clinton Foundation and more.
Poised to control the committee in two weeks — for the first time eight years — incoming Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) told CNN this morning that “skyrocketing” prescription drug prices will be a “very big” agenda item in the 116th Congress.
But Cummings is also planning administration oversight.
“We have control over security clearances. That comes under our jurisdiction. And we noticed that there were a lot of problems with security clearances with regard to Mr. Porter, Mr. Flynn, and others, and Kushner. And so we want to take a look at that,” he said.
