The House of Representatives is set to shift course.
Early next year, there will be 218 Democrats in the chamber, giving the left a majority and the speaker of the House for the first time in eight years. The Democrats will gavel the House committees. They’ll set the agenda and the priorities, and they’ll limit the authority of the president. In short, Congress is about to look very different, very soon.
