NY 26th FINALLY DEM!
Congressional Democrats, divided and struggling for a path from the electoral wilderness, are constructing an agenda to align with many proposals of President-elect Donald J. Trump that put him at odds with his own party.

On infrastructure spending, child tax credits, paid maternity leave and dismantling trade agreements, Democrats are looking for ways they can work with Mr. Trump and force Republican leaders to choose between their new president and their small-government, free-market principles. Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, elected Wednesday as the new Democratic minority leader, has spoken with Mr. Trump several times, and Democrats in coming weeks plan to announce populist economic and ethics initiatives they think Mr. Trump might like.

Democrats, who lost the White House and made only nominal gains in the House and Senate, face a profound decision after last week’s stunning defeat: Make common cause where they can with Mr. Trump to try to win back the white, working-class voters he took from them, or resist at every turn, trying to rally their disparate coalition in hopes that discontent with an ineffectual new president will benefit them in 2018.

Mr. Trump campaigned on some issues that Democrats have long championed and Republicans resisted: spending more on roads, bridges and rail, punishing American companies that move jobs overseas, ending a lucrative tax break for hedge fund and private equity titans, and making paid maternity leave mandatory.

Some Democrats are even co-opting Mr. Trump’s language from the campaign. “Every single person in our caucus agrees the system is rigged,” said Senator Debbie Stabenow, Democrat of Michigan.

Mark my words, Democrats will go back to their 2008 strategy which was to pretend to be conservatives and pretend to support conservative positions on the issues. Then right after the election they voted lock step with liberals and Obama in the Democratic party.

I can't imagine how free market principles will bring working class jobs back. After all, Trump's free market principles had him buying Chinese steel and Thai ties. Or something like that.

Opposing Authoritarian Ideological Fundamentalism.
What's so strange about them doing their jobs? If Trump wants to do stuff that will actually help the country, it would be childish and unethical to oppose those things just to oppose him. This is how adults behave, Just opposite of how the right has done for the last 8 years.
Beat me to it.

It's pretty sad that the thought of these people actually working together for the good of the country would be notable.

I have been saying it along didn't know why you libs didn't listen.

The answer is obvious the libs only care about power and a (D) after someone's name..

For the millionth time trump is a billionaire but a blue collar guy at heart, he knew the only way to win the strongest class of republicans I have ever seen to beat the left wing press and to beat Hillary he had to go over the top he learned it from Barnum and bailey.. You libs were crying about nothing.

What a joke>>>Did you notice 8 years of total, mindless "no compromise, un-American TP GOP"- TIME obstruction of ANYTHING Obama proposed, even GOP type solutions, while 4 or 5 Dems would go along with W on just about anything? Probably not, Foxbot or whatever kind of New BS GOP dupe you are. I always liked Trump better than any of the other bought off swine GOPers. Like 70% of his supporters, always suspected he was just "deal"ing with you fools...
