Nancy Pelosi seems to think that the recent election has given the Democrats a mandate to push progressive policies. Virtually no one agrees with her.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Friday celebrated House Democrats’ “mandate” from voters, but for weeks officials and the media have been discussing how bad the party’s results were.
Despite the uncertainty of the presidential election, many have called the election a powerful rebuke of progressivism.
