Democrats won two years of isolation in the House. A $2 billion blunder. Weaker now than before the election.
They won the right to not get any laws signed by Trump or approved by the Senate. They can’t override a veto or stop Trump appointments. They can impeach anyone they want — but can’t convict or force the Senate to vote on an impeachment.
If they pass something Trump wants he’ll sign it; otherwise it will just die for lack of support.
The lame duck House has 75 days to pass funding for the border wall or a 10 percent middle-income tax cut Republicans wanted.
