Like rats leaving a sinking ship, Democrats in Nancy Pelosi’s Congress are getting out while they still can.
Pelosi’s hold on a congressional majority grew even more tenuous with today’s announcement by two long-serving Democrats, that they would be retiring. Conservative Brief reports:
In a further sign that Democrats are losing faith in keeping the House during next year’s midterm elections, two more long-serving members of the party are throwing in the towel and calling it quits.
“Reps. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) and David Price (D-N.C.) will not seek reelection, they will announce later Monday,” Politico reported earlier in the day.
“Doyle, 68, was first elected in 1994 and is a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The 81-year-old Price, who won his seat in 1996, is a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee,” the outlet continued….
Other top Democrats in recent weeks have also said they plan on calling it quits and won’t be seeking reelection next year.
This is a typical sign of weakness in a majority party, and the fact that Doyle and Price are both in fairly competitive states makes this even worse news for them.
For that, Pelosi should be saying “Let’s go Brandon!”

Bill Gates is a total creep. New inappropriate emails to a staffer were just uncovered.
CNN’s top potato Brian Stelter was thoroughly embarrassed on his own show by former New York Times writer Bari Weiss. It’s a fairly common occurrence for Stelter to embarrass himself, but this particular smackdown was brutal.
Bidenomics has the US in a recession that could be as bad as 2008 according to this economist.
