This post is a follow-up post to the one I wrote about Pelosi representing her district. As you will see, the demographics of AOC’s district make it an excellent one for her.
My hope is that by sharing posts like these, I can demonstrate that there is data to support what Congress does–even if it’s terrible–and that we could use that data to understand how to replace a number of those not adequately serving us.
The verdict for this episode is: Democrats care more about politics and power than people.
I discuss the lack of real opposition to the Electoral College, Biden’s support of people voting during a pandemic, Pelosi’s disinterest in providing oversight of the money being spent by the Treasury, how little Congress has done for people, and the reality that only AOC voted against the last bill.

Matt Stoller’s Goliath is one of the most important political books I have ever read. For those wanting to learn more about the closeness between the Democratic and Republican parties on corporate power, Goliath is a must.
The October Democratic debate was interesting. It was different than the previous debates in several aspects. I don’t believe it will change the race much though. Warren will still be seen as on the rise. Biden will still be seen as falling. Sanders will be seen as having stabilized his campaign and still firmly in the top three. For the rest, it’s almost midnight.
As I’m sure almost everyone knows, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former attorney, testified before Congress this week. While Cohen testified before three House committees, this post addresses his comments to a public session of the House Oversight Committee.
