House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, feels the Democratic party doesn’t want to go in a new direction even after election loss to Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reported that Pelosi, when interviewed on “Face the Nation” by John Dickerson on Sunday, stated “Well, I don’t think that people want a new direction. Our values unify us. Our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on.”
Unfortunately for the house leader, many of her colleagues don’t feel the same way. Several Democrats have voiced their opinions on the less than stellar performance of the Democratic party in not only the presidential election but also the election outcome in the Senate and Congress. The Republicans now have the majority in both houses. These Democrats feel a change of direction is necessary to move forward.
Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan who ran against her as Minority leader said, “If they don’t change directions they will soon become obsolete.”
Nancy disagrees with that position and said during her interview on Face the Nation;
“What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country. And that clearly in the election showed that message wasn’t coming through.We are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility, to be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”
The Republican party is ecstatic that Pelosi was elected Democratic House Minority Leader. They feel that as long as she remains in control, the Republicans can’t lose either house majority.
