House Democrats need to intro bills for all progressive agenda items.

Medicare for All, Free College, New Green Deal, minimum wage, repeal tax scam, etc...
Senate Republicans would reject it, and I'd remind Americans of this every day with a rallying cry to the press ahead of 2020.

1. This will only work if the Blue Dogs sign on...

If we introduce a wishlist in the House, and it dies there through a coalition of BD and Repugs, all it will do is make Democrats look weak and ineffectual.

3. I would expect Ms. Pelosi has a game plan

If Dems in DC act wisely in this next two years, they can decimate the GOP. But I also expect interference from less progressive members which will be amplified by the corporate media ad infinitum.

6. A game plan is absolutly needed to achieve results.

A hunger for media attention and interference by less progressive members - and more progressive members; will be a persistent, costly problem, limiting achievement of results - which has happened in the last two elections.

4. Agree. For not only obvious reasons,

but also we shouldn't only focus on investigations all the time.

7. We need to go to the mid west and southern states and talk about our platform. Go directly to the

people. Bypass the media.

8. Yes, if only to demonstrate what is planned for the future.

Few will pass before 2020, but getting the word out about what's coming should inspire voters.

9. Sure, symbolic votes, and bills never to be voted on in the senate.

 

Just don't waste time with 50 votes on same stuff. The democratic house has power of investigation and appropriations. They best use them as weapons.

10. We can do all of those thing at the same time we're investigating.
