    I thought you lefties love NPR?

    “Republicans seem to have all the momentum lately when it comes to the battle for control of the U.S. Senate.

    GOP chances were already looking brighter because of the drag on Democrats from the Affordable Care Act and President Obama’s low approval ratings. Then came two developments that suddenly expanded the playing field"

    The ACA aims to change the cost trajectory of healthcare & to provide better coverage by creating a larger insurance risk pool. The RepubliCons aim to kill the ACA outright and return us to the old rising cost trajectory, eliminating all insurance coverage for those below a certain tax bracket, sending the needy to last-call local Emergency Rooms for local tax and insurance programs to support.
    -
    Tough choice for voters, eh? The ACA or the continuously escalating costs of the “Good old Days” of Reagan, Bush and Bush the Lesser. Really tough.

    This may be correct considering the gerrymandering that has been going on. It is time to get rid of this tool used by both sides based on the fact that it destroys democracy.

    The far right credo:
    win at all costs,
    might makes right,
    do unto others for fun and profit.

    I haven’t seen ima (CCNJ et al) lately. Where is he/she/it?

    A republican take over of both houses means they would have to actually govern “for the people” a new role. They would set the tone for 2016 which may well startle them.

    @If my words offend you - you don't have the open mind you claim to have

    “Bye dems. It’s time for you to go.”

    It’s long since time for that empty partisan snark to go, but it keeps coming back to post under a new account shortly after it’s banned.

    @lopaka = Gerrymandering only affects the House of Representatives. Since the Senate is a statewide vote, the actual geographical boundary of the district is the entire state itself.

    Well, it’s the Democrat’s own fault. Harry Reid is a lying, obstructionist, moron. How many bills sit languishing without even being sent to committee or debated because of him right now? Yesterday he made a rambling diatribe against Republicans over Obamacare again. The man is senile.
    .
    Barbara Boxer?
    .
    The Democrat side of the senate has a number of straight up idiots in it’s ranks. They make John McCain look good, and that’s hard to do.

    Worse. Polling machines by Diebold.

    Don’t blame just the far right. That is the credo of any political party anywhere.

    Three Dems booted from the Kalifornia Senate. Pretty soon there will not be enough to form a quorum

    If Republicans gain control of the Senate, they had better have 60 Senators when all the votes are counted. Otherwise, the Democrats will likely do what the Republicans have done since 2009: say “filibuster”. Instantly all bills/resolutions/decisions (except for judicial appointments, perhaps) will require 60 votes to pass.

    The result? The House will pass bills, the Senate will never pass any of them. No different than the way things are right now.

    And, as a result, there will be continued gridlock. Nothing will be done. Nothing will be attempted. And within 2 years, the voting public will notice that there has been no improvement, no change in the gridlock, since they put Republicans into power. But there will still be public hand-wringing and sound bytes galore.

    A very interesting predicament. It will be interesting to watch. Unfortunately, while it’s unfolding, we will see no improvement in health care, immigration reform, economy, or jobs.

    If Karl Rove gets involved in a big way, it might happen. Watch to see if he appears more frequently on Fox News Sunday. He reminds me of a dissipated baby, overfed and smug.
