Steny Hoyer

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D, leaves the U.S. Capitol Thursday after telling colleagues in a letter that he would leave leadership but remain in the House.

Steny Hoyer

WASHINGTON — House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland, has decided to leave his position as the second-ranking Democrat — a post he has held in the minority and the majority since 2003 — but will remain in the House.

Hoyer for years was considered a likely successor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California. But as she stepped away from her post Thursday, so too did Hoyer, part of a smoothly engineered transition to younger party leadership.

If it is time for Nanny to pass the baton to a much younger generation, why is she staying? I know. Paul needs the insider information to continue lining both their pockets.

Pelosi is a big joke.to me she has not done a thing in congress.at her age it is time for her to go,time for her to go sit in her rocking chair.

gabrielshorn2013

Maybe you should have paid attention, Leonard. Ms. Pelosi was one of the most effective House Speakers in a long time. S much so, that she was re-elected after the Republicans (after Boehner and Ryan) lost the majority. Has that ever happened before? you may not like what she did, but you cannot say she didn't get things done. BTW, being an ageist, are we? Bigot.

Like 2 worthless impeachments and 1 attempt. Or a slew of meaningless legislation. Panel after panel of fruitless investigations. She was a party hack and art that she was very qualified.

gabrielshorn2013

Why were the impeachments worthless, jsk? Because he wasn't found guilty by the Senate? Do you honestly believe enough Republican tribal Senators would actually vote to convict? No. Nonetheless, he was impeached by the House of Representatives. Twice, not once and one attempt. Twice. That is the total of the number of presidential impeachments preceding him (Johnson and Clinton with 1 each). So, what legislation that Ms. Pelosi ushered through the House do you find meaningless, and why? Please cite specifics. Did much of the legislation she moved through the House have bipartisan support? Yep, sure did. Would you think it fair to say that if a Republican had the same track record, that they were a party hack, too? If not, why?

phydeaux994

You don’t have a clue LK. She has served during four Administrations, passing significant Legislation in three of the four. Even during the Trump Administration the House submitted much bipartisan Legislation which died at Mitch McConnells Senate Doorstep. You speak with no knowledge, which seems to be a pattern with the BTT(BullyTagTeam) here. Like the counting of the votes. The timetable was well known prior to the Election to those paying attention.

I remember Nancy and Steny working the phones on January 6th during the MAGAT Insurrection.

She stood up to Trump and bested him many times.

Bigger cahones than the boys on the right, Best Wishes Madame Speaker.

Pelosi 82, Hoyer 83, Biden 80 this month, been in politics all their lives and have gotten mega rich doing it. What have they done for this country? Increased the national debt and padded their pockets. They have hurt the working class of this country. Why people keep voting for them is unreal.

phydeaux994

Because every word that you and Mr. Reid just wrote is totally untrue. But I love it. By the time 2024 comes around, every sane American voter will be sick and tired of the Clown Show and Benghazi II with absolutely nothing to show for the effort and the Democrats will win it all back. Trump and his band of hooligans are Ancient History as of November 8, 2022. Nancy Pelosi is 10 times the man of Kevin McCarthy. He’s already caved in to the Far, Far, Far Right nuts who will destroy the Republiban Party. I can’t wait.

C.D.Reid

OK, fido, and just what is "totally untrue" about my comment below? Hmmm? And please, be specific and not deflect. Put up, or shut up.

phydeaux994

😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣🦧⛓🐑 ooooh!! Everything you say is a lie. Which comment do you want me to be specific about? They’re all BS, mean, nasty, hateful. Would you like someone to talk about your Mothers like that, or your sisters, or your wives. You’d report us and have us kicked off the FNPOF. So tell me which comment and I’ll point out your lies. PU or SU!!!!! I’m waiting tough guy.😂😂😂😂🤣😂😂😂😂🦧⛓🐑

gabrielshorn2013

Sorry, phy, it doesn't work that way. You said, "Because every word that you and Mr. Reid just wrote is totally untrue.", so the onus is on you to provide the example, not CD.

phydeaux994

I agree gab, that’s why I asked him which of his comments he wants me to respond to. Everything all of these guys write is BS. It would be better if they would ask me to respond to the things that they say that are true. Then I wouldn’t have to respond to anything. Peace.✌️😷

gabrielshorn2013

Ummm...that's not what I said phy. If you are calling anyone out for lying, the onus is on you to point out the lie, and state the truth. If you have a reference in support, even better. The ball is in your court.

C.D.Reid

Umm, fido, you said "every word that [selwood] and [I] just wrote is totally untrue." As in JUST wrote. That's not saying everything that I have ever written, it's saying what I had JUST written. As in immediately preceding your [stupid] comment. Up until then, I had posted here at 6:14am, 6:22am, 9:03am and 6:02pm. So, what did I include in those comments that is "totally untrue?" C'mon, big, bad fido, tell us. As I said, put up or shut up, tough boy. (Good Lord, don't you ever get tired of making an utter fool out of yourself? Why is it you and Pb love doing that so much?)

C.D.Reid

Sorry fido, I forgot:

Cluck, cluck, cluck... [lol]

Crickets. What about it, phydeaux?

Nanni Pelosi and the Biden crime family have gotten rich from their service. Nanni from insider trading and Biden from influence peddling and his 10% cut of the action.

Republicans are proposing eliminating Social Security and Obamacare (Rep. Senator Scott. R - FL). That's good for working class Americans? Reality check: In the year 2000, at the end of the Clinton presidency, the national budget was balanced for the first time since before the great depression. Economic projections indicated that if the economic trends continued the entire national debt would be payed off by 2014. When the Republicans took power in 2001, they immediately passed the largest tax cut in history ( mostly benefiting wealthy taxpayers and corporations) which led to our horrible national debt situation. Bob Lewis

selwood21

Thanks to Joe Brandon Biden's inflation, SS will be defunct much earlier with this large COLA coming. You should stop listening to the fake mainstream media about eliminating SS. Obamacare drove cost of premiums sky high. Now with the Inflation Reduction Act (aka green new deal) that does nothing to reduce inflation, our economy is in the tank. Democrats mode of operation, destroy the economy but don't worry we will take care of you. Socialism at its best.

Selwood, Instead of letting Fox News define your beliefs, you should do your own research on the history of Social Security. From Day-One Republicans have opposed Social Security and repeatedly tried to repeal it, cripple it or replace it with minimal programs. Republicans opposed enlarging the program to include domestic workers (most of whom were black) and have continually fought against attempts to make it financially secure. For instance, an increase to $200,000 in the amount of income subject to Social Security tax would heal much of Social

Security and Medicare deficits. No Republican supports either. As late as the last mid-term election, Republican Senator Scott (FLA) who was the head of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, included in his platform a proposal to replace Social Security with a voucher system. Bob Lewis

C.D.Reid

selwood, they keep voting for those idiots because they are idiots themselves. Idiots who have been brainwashed with far left indoctrination. It reminds me of the scene in the movie version of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" where, during the playing of "Another Brick In The Wall," the school kids ride a conveyor to a meat grinder, fall in, and come out as ground up meat. Only with the Dims, they fall into a mold and come out as good little, sedated sheeple.

selwood21

If the mainstream media would actually do their job as journalist, we wouldn't be in this hell hole of politics that we are in. Our media is no better then the media from North Korea or China. Now we have the DOJ colluding with the media to suppress information that affects elections. Very sad CD.

C.D.Reid

I agree, 100%, selwood.

phydeaux994

HATERS OF AMERICA!! A THIRD WORLD SH*THOLE COUNTRY!! Go from Country to Country until you find someone who likes you.😂🤣There aren’t enough Countries in the World. BTW, have you cleaned up your chicken coop poop? Put out your Rat Traps? Mowed your grass? Get to it!

pdl603

Playdough, why so angry? See a doctor you are about to blow a gasket. Playdough, everything Selwood said is true you are just to dumb to know it.

C.D.Reid

pdl, it appears fido is about to blow a gasket. And he says my comments are full of hate! [lol][lol][lol]

C.D.Reid

Pelosi is another Dim going down a few rungs on the ladder, for now. She said she's not going to seek re-election as speaker, but will retain a position representing her home, San Francisco, district. And that will only be until Brandon appoints her as ambassador to Italy. Her reward for being the biggest PITA in DC will then be to get paid to sit around Rome sucking up wine with her wino husband. God, I'll be so glad to not see her name in the news anymore!

lewisantq

C.D.Reid Nancy Pelosi has been a historic and incredibly effective Speaker. Your obnoxious comments say much more about you than it does Speaker Pelosi. Bob Lewis

C.D.Reid

"A historic and incredibly effective Speaker?" That's your opinion, which means no more than mine, or anyone else's does. Do you think it was "historic and incredibly effective" for her to tear up her copy of Trump's SOTU address when he finished speaking? I call it incredibly rude, partisan grandstanding that was completely unnecessary and did nothing but divide the country further. But you go right ahead and love her, you're entitled to. Just like I'm entitled to despise her, Brandon, Schumer, and the rest of the Dim clowns.

Now, if you think my comments are so obnoxious, Bob Lewis, then why do you read them?

gabrielshorn2013

CD, the very public record shows Ms. Pelosi to be a very effective House Speaker (leader of the entire HoR) in getting legislation through the House. Rudeness is not ineffectiveness. I remember that State of the Union speech well, and the fact-checkers tearing into it.

She's been effective to allow her husband to buy stock just before bringing legislation to the floor. Great timing
