‘House Crumbling’: Congressional Democrats Eyeing Exit And Plan To Retire After 2022

Democrats are beginning to retire from politics in droves. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is the most notable, and she won’t be missed. Without Democrat leadership, Congress will be in much better shape, and they’re probably getting the hint that they aren’t going to win their re-election in the 2022 midterm elections.  

After polling has shown that Democrats are wildly unpopular, many are considering their future as political leaders. According to CNN, 54% of those polled prefer Republican security matters over 39% who prefer Democrat security matters, and 50% prefer Republican prosperity rather than 41% who prefer Democrat prosperity. When even CNN runs articles like that, you know that Democrats are in the wrong spot. Why else would they be pushing their massive spending ventures? They know this is their only shot.  

According to Newsweek, Mike Doyle (D-PA) and David Price (D-NC) are retiring, and they aren’t alone. The step could spell disaster for the Democrats and their agenda as Republican contenders will try and snatch their seats. Doyle has been serving since 1995, and Price has been serving since 1987 but was briefly voted out in the mid-90s. 

Doyle is the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, and other Pelosi pawns have announced their retirement, including John Yarmouth of Louisiana.  

All of this is a glaring example that if you pressure the Democrats, they’ll leave, and if their leader is a bumbling buffoon, they won’t even try anymore. They’re giving up. Part of this is good considering the age of some of the politicians and should be an example to others that you can’t be in the political game forever. At some point, it’s time to hang your hat up and pass the spot on to someone much younger that can try to make a difference for the younger generation.  

What needs to happen is that some of these politicians need to be fired. Maybe not some that were already listed, but Pelosi and Biden are destroying this country from within, and, unfortunately, they’re getting the support from their “fan base” that they are. People don’t seem to understand how the world works, and it’s obvious. Coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, especially since Biden was elected, shows citizens that more freedom, mainly from the Republican party, isn’t a bad thing, and maybe their policies aren’t as bad as they initially thought.
