The Speaker of the House situation is so easy to fix. Just 5-7 Republicans have to join with the Democratic Party to give the job to Hakeem Jeffries.

The Republicans will still hold the majority, so they have control of committees and chairs, and having a majority, they can still vote down any legislation that Speaker Jeffries brings to the floor.

So Republicans can be as disruptive and obstructionist as they wish, but at least some of the business of the country can continue.
