Nancy Pelosi Sworn In As Speaker Of US House Of Representatives.

The U.S House of Representatives has sworn in Nancy pelosi as speaker for the second time. The 116th Congress was seated Thursday, 3rd january, 2019, with Democrats taking the majority.

The first order of business as the house convened was electing Nancy Pelosi to be House speaker, a post she once held, for the second time.

A bill to end the government shutdown was Pelosi’s first point of call. Though the spending bill does not include funding for the border wall, and may not have the approval of Donald Trump.

PELOSI’S SPEECH AFTER BEEN SWORN IN.

The newly elected speaker gave her speech after been handed the gavel from the House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy.

She praised the over 100 women in the House and reiterated that the landslide victory of the Democrats at the November polls is a sign the public wanted the House to challenge Donald Trump.

” Our nation is at an historic moment. Two months ago, the American people spoke and demanded a new dawn,” she said. ” They called upon the beauty of our constitution: our system of checks and balances that protects our democracy, remembering that the legislative branch is Article I: the first branch of government, co-equal to the President and the judiciary. ”

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

Pelosi also talked about climate change,calling it” a crisis manifested in natural disasters of epic proportions.”

Pelosi reiterates on the need for Congress to combat climate change, saying ” this is a public health decision for clean air and water; an economic decision for America’s global preeminence in green technology; a security decision to keep us safe; and a moral decision to be good stewards of God’s creation. ”

As brilliant and fulfilling as these goals may sound, the partial government shutdown must be brought to an end. Also, the president has said that he will not sign any legislation that doesn’t include funding for the border wall, a proposed project which Democrats in the Senate and House have vehemently turned down.
