U.S. Democrats secure the House of Representatives

In the wake of the American mid-term Election, here is a video link describing what now needs to be done after the Democrats secured control of the House of Representatives.

What is exciting about this turnaround is that more women and people and different ethnic origins have been added to the mix of representatives in the House, which will surely bring a more balanced view of the problems facing the future of politics in the U.S.

Matters like the scourge of gerrymandering (the calculated re-distribution of electoral boundaries to suit mostly the Republican Party); the rising cost of pharmaceuticals and of health care; deteriorating international trade relationships; and immigration restrictions – that threaten the expansion of the workforce necessary to maintain the national infrastructure; all need to be addressed urgently. The Democrats have promised to work cooperatively with the Senate (still dominated by the Republicans) in order to improve the situation which, since President Trump’s election, has divided the nation.
