142. Sen. George Mitchell turned the Democratic Senate over to Sen. Bob Dole
I can tell you that because I watched that on C-span and the full course of it --

What did you hear prior to the last election except that the GOP were blocking the Dems --
and they were; they had them hog-tied.

What do you hear now ---- GOP blocking Dems.

When Democrats had the majority, did they pass national health care?

When Clinton was in the White House . . . they passed the fanatastic budget which gave us a surplus by what? one vote?

Now, I'm not saying that we should run a WHIPPED, lock-step Congress --
What I'm saying is that not every Democrat is working in the best interests of the public or the US.

Repugs, we know, of course are not --
