House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced new committee assignments Tuesday, including several far-left “Squad” members and like-minded Democrat freshman representatives.
“Squad” members Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan will now be on the House Oversight and Reform Committee. The newly elected Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri will join them on that committee, and freshman Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York will be on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.
“In the 2020 election, the American people overwhelmingly cast their ballots for a historically diverse and dynamic Democratic House Majority that will fight For The People,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Reinvigorated by our outstanding Freshmen Members, strengthened by our returning Members and inspired by the people whom we are honored to represent, our Majority is ready to Build Back Better in a way that will advance justice and prosperity for all Americans. Our Committees, enriched by the addition of these Members, are ready to drive transformational progress.”
Quid Fucking Pro Quo. You didn’t think their votes just “magically turned” did you?
“Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”

The only thing is her slightly more enamored tone. Going on about this bright future and their assignments, not about the issues they invigorated. Will any of this enable a solution in turning around a depression and deal properly with covid? Where is the leadership? Answer: It’s not there. Plus, if I protest too much about no leadership, how are they gonna treat me?
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

Someone called those ‘plum’ assignments.
Not so sure about that. House oversight and reform I think is a ticket to palookaville. They can file what they please, but getting anyone to act on it is another matter. Looks like most of the ‘squad,’ including the ‘new girl,’ was sent to St Helena together.
