    So I got bored and made a map of the seats for this Congress. The player seats are bold colors. If the player didn't specify their seat then I just guessed based on win margins IRL. Because of some changes like with Ward in his normally GOP seat and O'Dwyer in the Dem RI seat, I changed some narrow seats to the GOP.

    The debate here wasn't much of a debate and that is owed mostly to Republicans not fully engaging the fight. Rep. Nicholson fires the first shot, and it was a solid shot in terms of laying groundwork for further argumentation. However, he is met with two Democratic responses that do an excellent job refuting both the facts and the philosophy (the eminient domain argument was particularly interesting to libertarians with no alternative argument presented by the GOP). Had Nicholson responded I imagine he could have laid out his case and fought this to a draw. Had his party backed up his play, they very well could have made a realistic case for their position. As it was, however, the general trend here is that the public feels that supporting this legislation is the wrong thing for their Congressman and Senator to do. It is always hard to quantify how much any single debate moves the needle, but it is fair to say that changing the general will has to start somewhere, and one-sided debates like this are doing so for this legislation. This debate was a big win for the DNC and if I were the GOP I wouldn't minimize or discount debate. It IS important, and it is important not only in the cumulative, but issue by issue.

    Thomas W. Wickham, Jr., Parliamentarian Mr. Speaker, I hereby advise you of the following: the matter at hand is the question of if Section 2 of this bill is in order. As we all know, the role of the Parliamentarian is to advise the Chair. I therefore advise you, Mr. Speaker, that section 2 of the motion is improper because it presents the exact same question which this House has already defeated. As such, I advise that it is out of order, however it is up to the Chair to make the final decision.

    Thomas W. Wickham, Jr., Parliamentarian The point of order is recognized. This bill will not be brought up onto the floor until it is reviewed by the Parliamentarian and his staff.

    Lester Holt: “Tonight, we dive into a new report released by the OECD. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released their global rankings on student performance. OECD uses a test called Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) which assesses reading literacy, mathematics literacy, and science literacy in 15 year olds across the globe. Singapore finished ranked #1 in all categories with Canada and Finland finishing high in each category. Now where did the U.S. rank on the PISA? The U.S. finished the ranking at an all time low. We break that down for you. Starting with mathematics the U.S. finished with a score 430 which is 40 points less than 2015 and ranked 49th in the world. In reading the U.S. finished with a score of 497 which is equivalent to 2015 and ranked 24th in the world. Finally in science the U.S. appears to have taken a drastic hit falling 50 points from 496 in 2015 and is currently ranked 41st in the world. Not the greatest day for the U.S. education system and many eyes now turn to Washington to see how President Macmillan and Congress will move forward on education.“

The business wing, however, is not as thrilled.
