Before bills and nominations are brought up for a passage vote in Congress, they typically have to be considered and approved by relevant committees ― which also conduct oversight of federal agencies. Here’s a look at what Congressional committees will be holding hearings on this week.
Schedule subject to change. All times Eastern.

Election integrity is a big concern. Election fraud is rampant people who are 120 years old and older still on the ballots. More registered voters than actual residents. 110% voter turnout. They have now found Trump did win the popular vote when they took all the fraud out. Then there are voter ID laws that are somehow racist?? Only minority’s can’t afford an ID?? How do they get their welfare checks or cash them?? You need ID’s for that. The ID is not to prove you can vote but to show you are who you say you are. The name on the voter registry needs to match your ID to vote. You have to be a citizen and you can only vote once and only in the district you live in
Courts proved no election fraud Let’s stop beating dead horses Let’s protect our voters
For most marijuana is an effective pain killer and should delisted as a narcotic.
Pay attention as much as you can. Committee hearings are a huge part of how Congress works & get major attention infrequently. DON'T forget that some are broadcast on C-SPAN. Countable is doing us a massive service by sending out these schedules. Please SHARE them so more people will pay closer attention & get involved. Thank you, Countable!!!
Another fake crisis that is designed to divide America. There is a tiny percentage of fraudulent votes. Every fraudulent vote should be investigated but if anyone tells you fraudulent votes decided ANY recent election they are quoting fake (and likely Russian) conspiracy theories.
I hope what Fred wrote is sarcasm. There were 65 million or so votes for Hillary Clinton and 62 million or so for Donald Trump. If he was serious, he’s as ill informed and as big an idiot as Donald Trump. An additional 100 million of us did not vote. Our elections must be protected. Election Day should be a national holiday making it easier for people to vote. Mitch McConnell objects to this, but as a former resident of Kentucky I’d like to point out that Election Day is a State holiday there. So who is responsible for the miserable state this country is in at the moment? The Russians, the poor fools who were taken in by Donald Trump and continue to support him, certainly Donald Trump, the feckless Republican members of Congress and the 100 million Americans voters who did not take advantage of our precious right to vote. Congress, do your job and protect our elections and begin the process to eliminate the Electoral College.
It’s government, why would we feel good about it. Election fraud is rampant, and will never be dealt with, it only benefits the government to keep the fraud of dead and illegals voting.
Please do your job and block Trump emergency order to build wall. Keep our elections fair and safe.
Thank you for working on the people's business. Protecting our election process is essential in our democracy.
Feel fine about the House but not so good about the Senate.
We have massive election fraud in the US. We should have to prove CITIZENSHIP BEFORE receiving a voters registration, after citizenship has been verified then you would be issued voter photo ID cards that are required to vote. Yes this is strict. Our countries freedom is at stake and worth it. We could do with less of a presence in Korea but still need some, Drs should be prosecuted for issuing opioids indiscriminately, but I recognize in some cases they are necessary. I do believe Fed. legalization of Marijuana could be an alternative in some cases.
Concentrate on passing legislation to make sure that ALL 50 STATES CLEAN THEIR VOTER REGISTRATIONS AND START OVER; ONLY SIGNING UP VERIFIED U.S. CITIZENS TO VOTE! Make it mandatory that votes go from voter's hand to the counting machine (no magical votes found later). Make it a Federal Law that only U.S. Citizens can vote and must present a birth certificate, passport, or document that proves their Citizenship. If you don't do this... the Democrats will steal all elections and you will be out of office. The New Communist Left will undo all Republican tax savings, ban guns, change the laws and rules, and transform the government. Separate the DMV office from the voter registration process so that people do not get registered to vote for signing up for a driver's license. This is Priority 1!!!!!!!!
SENATE COMMITTEES WILL ACCOMPLISH NOTHING THAT WILL HELP AMERICA, ONLY THEIR DONORS, CORPORATIONS ETC ETC THE HOUSE COMMITTEES WILL ACTUALLY BE WORKING ON THINGS TO HELP AMERICA & AMERICANS (WHAT A CONCEPT) THEN THE THING THAT WILL SUCK IS IF THEY ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING THE REPUBLICANS WILL MAKE SURE THEY "F" IT UP
I urge those involved in these hearings to seek out the truth, do your own research using multiple sources and base your decisions on true facts. Leave your party hat at the door.
Please keep people in chronic pain who do not abuse pain medication in mind when considering the so called opiod crisis. We have an illegal drug problem. We have drugs being brought in from all over the world and being sold. Those are the people that need prosecution. Not a compliment chronic pain patient, being treated correctly for their condition with an opiod drug. Leave treatment of patients up to the doctor and patient, not legislators and government.
1. When the folks hired by us (elected) are pawns of their party, the president, the pope, or the plutocracy, and fail to represent their constituencies, it is challenging to care a lot about elections. 2. Korea? Protect yourself. 3. Opioids- don’t put them in your mouth if you’re not willing to take the risk.
Trump should not be price gouging Korea, Elections must be kept free and open to everyone no gerrymandering, and over the counter pain meds work really well try it.
We have massive election fraud and need to have a National Holiday for our General Elections. Plus eliminate the Electoral College.
Personally I think we could solve all of our issues in 4 steps. #1 End citizens United #2 Rank choice voting #3 Pass Medicare for all #4 Pass Green New deal
