WASHINGTON, Nov 8 – American experts do not exclude the adoption of the new composition of Congress, in which control of the house of representatives went to Democrats, the bill on anti-Russian sanctions, but in General, the new alignment will hamper the adoption of laws in the United States, according to the expert Washington the Brookings institution Molly Reynolds.
On Tuesday in the United States underwent a mid-term congressional elections, according to their results, the majority in the house of representatives went to the Democrats, the Republicans held the majority in the Senate.

“There can be initiatives which will be adopted by the house and the Senate will be interested to work on them. Maybe (will be) like the anti-sanctions initiatives and other issues where there is some agreement between the two parties and where the leader (Senate majority) McConnell can no longer use the excuse of saying that “we (Senate) will not consider the bill because he will never pass in the house of representatives,” — said the expert at a meeting at the Brookings institution.
