In between investigations into the Trump Administration, the Democrat-controlled House plans to pursue huge government expansions, Fox News reports, including a proposal to make Medicare available to all Americans.
Presumptive Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Progressive Caucus, and other Democratic leaders released a series of draft agendas last week, outlining their competing plans for the first few key months of the half-Democratic Congress. The “Better Deal” and the “Green New Deal” — the two most popular legislative platforms at the moment — both represent billion-dollar expansions that would put the government in control of everything from health care to higher education.
