So, the Republicans won control of the House of Representatives. The People's House, the People's body.
Now, these Republican House members campaigned on:
- Gas costs too much
- Inflation is too high
- Cities are hellscapes of crime
- Crime is coming for the rural areas
- Biden opened the southern border to Mexicans
So clearly, that will be their focus, right?
Not so much....
Per the Washington Post
Thursday morning, in the first public act of the new majority, senior House Republicans revealed their most urgent priority: They would investigate Hunter Biden.
Is Hunter Biden a douch and possibly a criminal? Yes. Worse than Don Jr., Invanka, or Eric Trump? God no. Did the Democrats run endless investigations into the Trump children, who were actually employed in the White House? No. (Corollary: Did Hunter Biden ever work in the White House? No.)
But their focus on Hunter Biden is a ruse designed to distract that they have no plans. The Republicans did not, actually, express any other action on their political promises.
