Election results: What a split Congress means for taxes, health care and other big issues


(CNN) Both President Donald Trump and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi spoke Wednesday about their desire to work across the aisle on bipartisan policy initiatives in the new Congress. Both Trump and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to become speaker in January, mentioned drug prices in remarks immediately after the election. One big sticking point: The current Republican-backed House bill would require more food stamp recipients to work, while the Senate wouldn't. Even under the current rules, it's possible that Congress could skip some steps and vote as early as New Year's Eve. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he would not bring the bill up for a vote.
