With only razor-thin advantages in both chambers of the U.S.Congress, President Joe Biden has still been able to push through some of his radical Marxist policies.
The problem for the left is the American people, after seeing the results of open borders, tax increases, inflation, spikes in murders, and overt crime in broad daylight ETC, are telling pollsters they want a change in direction in 22.
Instead of almost assuredly losing their jobs, more and more Democratic House members are announcing they are not running for re-election next November.
Republicans only need to net five seats to pick up the House majority after the midterms. So far 18 Democrats have decided to officially call it quits, leaving their seats open for a fight and thus giving Republicans a real chance to retire Pelosi as Speaker.
Some of the more vulnerable Democrats will be facing tougher re-election battles this campaign cycle partly because of redistricting. In addition, they have to try to defend their votes which helped President Biden pass many of his divisive partisan legislation, and also deal with Joe’s approval numbers which tanked following the Afghanistan Withdrawl fiasco.
With the combination of an unpopular President Biden and these House members departing, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) ambitions of keeping the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives passed the midterm elections next year are dwindling.
This week, vulnerable Democrat Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), was the 18th House Democrat to announce he will be leaving the House to join the crowded race for New York governor.
Rep. Suozzi will be leaving behind a largely suburban district, which would be tough for Democrats to hold without a strong incumbent. This might give Republicans a pickup seat in New York as Democrats have struggled to find new candidates willing to run for office.
Suozzi joined the ten Democrats who announced they are retiring from public office after the current term, which expires in January 2023: Reps. Filemon Vela (D-TX) and Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) announced their retirements in March; Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), the former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairwoman, announced she would not seek reelection in April; scandal-ridden Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) announced he would be retiring in August; House Budget Committee Chairman Rep.
Additionally, John Yarmuth (D-KY) announced, along with longtime Reps. David Price (D-NC) and Mike Doyle (D-PA), they would both not be seeking reelection in October; Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) announced, along with longtime Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) and House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairwoman Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) , they would both not seek reelection in November.
