As we await a successful Speaker election for the 118th Congress, Democrats are already having a fit.
They have seen the GOP agenda and they do not like it.
According to Democrats, the GOP is competently out of touch with the average American.
I beg to differ, at least for conservatives.

Since legislation is out of the question, the real issue on the table is investigations.
Now, don't get me wrong… Republicans in the House will craft legislation and send it to the Senate, where it will go to die.
The Senate will craft legislation and send it to the House, where it will go to die.
Such is the nature of a split Congress.
That leaves investigations, which Democrats, who did nothing but investigate Trump for the last two years, say are out of touch.
Incoming Minority House Leader Hakeem Jeffries stated, "The Extreme MAGA Republicans have apparently learned nothing from their historic underperformance in the midterm elections. Instead of seeking common ground to solve problems for everyday Americans, the new majority is clearly determined to put extreme partisan politics over the people we are all privileged to represent.
"House Democrats will continue to fight for lower costs, better-paying jobs and safer communities. On the other hand, House Republicans will quickly move to restrict reproductive freedom and abortion care, while making it easier to cut taxes for the wealthy, well-off and well-connected."
Boy, it sure is funny how the narrative changes when the shoe gets on the other foot, isn't it?
Rep. James McGovern (D-MA) added, "Instead of building on Democrats' work to create a more accommodating Congress, Republican leaders have once again caved to the most extreme members of their own caucus: allowing the far-right to hold the incoming Speaker hostage; attempting to end Congressional staff unionization; reinstating CUTGO so they can more easily cut taxes on billionaire corporations while slashing the social safety net; giving committee chairs unbalanced discretion over which witnesses can and cannot testify; rejecting commonsense pandemic safety procedures like remote voting by proxy; and reinstating the Holman rule so they can target civil servants they disagree with."
So, I am just a bit confused here… did he expect the GOP to come and keep pushing the Democrat agenda?
I am so sick of this turning of narrative based on who is in office.
Democrats are now going to villainize the very thing they spent the last two years doing.
How about, just once, Congress stops showboating and grabbing headlines, and actually does something for the American people instead of illegal immigrants, foreign governments, and lobbyists.
