Trump and the Rebel Republicans have done more damage to our Democracy than the Nazis and the Confederates. The Nation needs to be SAVED! Arrest Trump – TODAY!
“I’m never getting sworn in am I?” Rep-elect Mary Peltola, D-Alaska, tweeted Thursday afternoon, as members were anticipating another round of votes. Peltola won office in Nov. when she defeated former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
The House of Representatives held three votes on Tuesday, three votes on Wednesday and five votes on Thursday, but each failed to have a candidate reach the 218-vote threshold to lead the chamber.
A vote to select a speaker must be the first action taken in a new Congress, even before new members are officially sworn in to office.

“And all of us that didn’t have jobs lined up will be perpetually unemployed.”
