Dems are putting out some amazing things on Day 2.

A lot of this won't go anywhere due to Republicans and Trump, but these initial bills are awesome. Amazing what happens when adults are in charge. Republicans couldn't come up with a single good idea in 2 years. Dems have beat them in less than 2 days.

Some examples of bills proposed in the House so far:

Reopen the Government
End the Electoral College and prevent Presidents from pardoning themselves or their families.
Overturning Citizens United.
House rule changes including banning discrimination for LGBT people in Congressional staffing. (Passed)
