Midterms: What Will Happen if the Democrats Win the House?

Of all the coverage and discussion surrounding the upcoming midterms, most headlines have centered around the possibility Democrats win the House of Representatives. So, if that happens, what actually changes?

One big difference would be in the priorities Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., pushed and which priorities House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would push if she gets the gavel.

"Paul Ryan wants lower taxes, lower spending," The Heritage Foundation's Tommy Binion told CBN News. "He wants to focus on the economy. Nancy Pelosi wants to focus on social issues. Nancy Pelosi wants to raise taxes. She wants to spend more. She wants to investigate President Trump."

Binion suggests the angry political division in the country could also have a huge impact, noting the "scores of investigations into the president, his administration, his family members, his actions; launching impeachment proceedings."

There's also the possibility of Democrats taking a totally different course and deciding to work with the president on issues like infrastructure and prison reform.

But they can't take both paths, Binion notes.

"You can't simultaneously be the resist movement empowered in the halls of Congress and be working towards impeaching the president and be working with him on a shared agenda," he said.
