Jeffries: House Dems, GOP reached deal on committee ratios

Jeffries says agreement reached with House Republicans on committee ratios

House Democratic leadership has reached an agreement with Republican counterparts on the remaining committee ratios for this term, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) announced Sunday.

Jeffries made the announcement in a letter to colleagues reviewed by the Washington Examiner. Republicans control the House 222-212, which is identical to the majority Democrats had in the last Congress. Jeffries explained in the letter that the deal was "consistent" with how committees were divided when Democrats were in control.

"These ratios are consistent with an inversion of those from the prior Congress where Democrats held a similarly sized majority, notwithstanding a few changes in overall committee size," Jeffries wrote.

Democratic membership on the House Armed Services, Budget, Foreign Affairs, Judiciary, and Small Business committees for this Congress, according to the letter, will be a “direct inversion” from when the party had the majority in the last session. On the Armed Services Committee, for example, Democrats and Republicans had a respective 31-29 split in the last session, which will now flip with the GOP in the majority.

There should have been no "deal".

McCarthy should have told the dem-communists how many seats they'd get.
And that should have been it.

What if things were "the other way around"?
