Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the San Francisco Representative, has been elected today as speaker of the House of Representatives for the second time, cementing her legacy as one of the most effective female legislators in American history. Democrats NOW control the house. Let checks and balances prevail!

In her prepared floor speech upon accepting the speaker’s gavel, Pelosi outlined Democratic policy priorities, including addressing income inequality and climate change. She’s also anticipates a new dawn in the House. She acknowledges this historic time – 100 years after women winning their right to vote!


“When our new members take the oath, our Congress will be refreshed, and our democracy will be strengthened by the optimism, idealism and patriotism of this transformative freshman class,”

Democrats must be “pioneers of the future” and “accelerate a future that advances America’s preeminence in the world” by improving public education and workforce development.

Immigration – quoting Ronald Reagan on the acceptance of immigrants.

She also sounds a warning on climate change, calling it “a crisis manifested in natural disasters of epic proportions.”

The partial government shutdow must end.

“We will debate and advance good ideas no matter where they come from – and in that spirit, Democrats will be offering the Senate Republican appropriations legislation to re-open government later today – to meet the needs of the American people, and to protect our borders”

“For the People” agenda, which Democrats campaigned on nationally, a package including bills on infrastructure, ethics reform, lowering health care costs and protecting those with pre-existing conditions.
