    It’s truly embarrassing that the GOP senator’s only policy goal for the next two years is to destroy the presidency of Barack Obama. You’d think that with all of the problems facing America they could find one thing they could work with him on, instead of using extortion by government shut down. Get read for another round of “we have to get something, and I don’t even know what that is.”

    Harry Reid is holding the stop sign.
    Dump the Dems come November!

    I still remember Romney would be President. I think the Republicans has the same chance Romney has to be President.

    The IEM says there is a 70% chance the Democrats will lose the Senate. Fivethirtyeight says it’s probable the Democrats will lose the Senate. And finally, Sam Wang says there is a 70% chance the Democrats will keep control of the Senate.


    Strangely, Sam Wang and IEM are not contradictory. The IEM defines ‘Democrats losing the Senate’ as having 49 (or fewer) registered Democrats elected this coming November. Sam Wang defines ‘Democrats winning the Senate’ as having 49 (or more) registered Democrats elected plus two (or more) Senators who are not registered Democrats but who will vote as though they were.


    So it’s possible the Democrats will lose the Senate (in the IEM sense) but Senator Reid will stay as majority leader, even without a majority.


    (Fivethirtyeight says the most likely result will be 50.9 Republican Senators, so there is about a 60% chance that McConnell will be the next majority leader and have his hand on the throttle, as depicted in the cartoon.)

    And Mitch would make a worse majority leader than Harry, I doubt it.

    I say dump them all. If a majority of Congress people were interested in getting something done vs getting re-elected we would have got something done. Washington need fresh blood on both sides of the aisle.

    If I have one senator that I like because he votes the way that I prefer most of the time and the same for my US rep. why would I vote for the person that promises to vote AGAINST my wishes?
    That doesn’t make any sense.

    There goes that Koch addiction again. Except it seems that it’s not the Democrats that have a problem sucking up to Koch, it’s the republicans and especially Mitchy boy,
    “I want to start by thanking you, Charles and David, for the important work you’re doing. I don’t know where we’d be without you.”
    .
    All the while the republicans are sniveling that the Democrats have a Koch problem the republicans are promising to adhere strictly to the Koch agenda of “throw them all overboard, they can either learn to swim or drown to death.”
    Oh, “And [the republicans are] not going to be debating all these gosh darn proposals. That’s all we do in the Senate is vote on things like*raising the minimum wage* (inaudible)—cost the country 500,000 new jobs(CBO estimates worst case scenario); extending unemployment—that’s a great message for retirees; uh, the student loan package the other day, that’s just going to make things worse, uh. These people believe in all the wrong things.” All things the Kochs with their “We’ve got ours to hell with you” attitude are decrying.
    .
    Yep, there’s a Koch problem alright, except it’s not the Democrats with it, it’s America that is harmed by the republican’s Koch addiction.

    I guess if you think they are doing what is best for the country, you should vote for them. Considering the dismal track record of the Congress over the last few years, it is hard to imagine they are doing anybody and good.

    I’m sure you have sources to back up your
    claims?
    Didn’t think so…

    It’s kind of like Israel and Palestine. They refuse reasonable compromise that would do both sides some good and the Tea party keeps launching rockets.

    The USA should be a Socialist nation.
    Should have been since day one back in 1776.
