5. THe problem is we will never take back the US House even if we poor zillions...

into the race.

I did a study of the PA US House races from 2012 where GOP won 13 of 18 House races. Yet overall more people in PA voted for Democrats to be their representative.
THanks to the 2010 redistricting done by the GOP with a GOP Govenor they like 75% of the democratic voters into 5 districts while making sure it was impossible to win the other 13.

The ONLY way we can take back the house is first make sure we have plenty of democratic governors in 2010. Remember the state house/congress districts are also badly gerrymandered so if the governor is GOP and the congress is controlled by the GOP then we are fucked. If we get democrats in as governor then perhaps we can have more compromise to get these seats set in a fairer manner.
