Outgoing Members Of Congress Give Advice To Freshman Class | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC
Tikal, what we’re about to see in Congress a shake-up May well be an understatement. Huge gains for the Democrats, so many Republicans taking a hike from a Washington where they see little to no chance to get things done. And if this this drama is this young freshman class, that’s promising to shake up Washington, but are they really ready for what’s in store documentary filmmaker and producer Alexandra Pelosi daughter of Nancy Pelosi got an Insider’s point of view from some key hiring members of Congress for New special on Vice news tonight on HBO called Good by Congress. Take a look, would you recommend this job to a friend if you love this job so much? Why are you quitting? You know? Thirty years is a long time, I’m ready to try something new. I got elected, I think I was 37 years old and now I’m I feel like I’m 77 years old. When did you come here? 1082? Fascinating. Okay. So let’s talk what you were saying: off-camera, the Republicans were a little more forthcoming than the Democrats know for sure. I think it’s just liberating to leave. I think a lot of these members felt like they finally got to just they no longer have to play the political game. Every incoming member of Congress needs to watch the show to learn the lessons that the people that have spent decades serving their Washington is very complicated. Ecosystem and people don’t understand it’s easy to say, I’m going to a system in place and it’s very darwinian and they have to learn the rules of the game. As my mother is first the game you can learn how to win. The game need to learn how to play the game. Members of Congress are willing to share what they learned in the decades. You cannot have on day one having said that. That’S probably one of the common things you heard, but if there were a couple of things that you took away, even as somebody who has lived in a household where you get what it’s like to go through this a member of Congress, what did you learn? A lot of people think that they say I’m going to go in and there are two teams and you are one team or the other two and you need to decide if you’re going to have a district agenda or Washington agenda. Are you going to just advocate for them to do the best through the wall, the system, it’s a very complicated game that you’re planning, and I think that what all these members need to learn is what committee you get on and how did it affect the change That you say you’re going to make it really easy to make a big change. You need to learn. How can I fix this change? An outsider quite a few of these new members of Congress, sometimes before sometimes after they, they actually won their seat. I mean as an American, I was a journalist as an American, I’m enthusiastic about fresh ideas. Really smart people really admitted to making things better for the people in their District. The reality check is about to set in, and you spoke with Paul Ryan and some others about advice for the Freshman Class, which I love. So, let’s listen to that do not be a generalist, be a specialist and don’t let them get you down. What does that mean? That means it there’s no reporters in the tunnel what they’re getting themselves into absolutely. I think they’ve been number one wasn’t very cliche. You need to make friends with a lot of people come rolling and firebomb style, and it’s really important that you really have to make friends on both sides of the aisle. That’S the most important. If you want to make any change, if you’re not going to be able to do it, just by sticking with your people, you have to make friends it’s on Vice news tonight at the special goodbye Congress.
