Most elected Democrats are either cowards or Republican wannabes
The Republican's did not have filibuster proof Senate when they were in charge yet the Democrats rarely used the filibuster, heck most of the time the Lieberman's of the world voted with them.

You vote a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate and the Presidency and you get the same corporate roll over as you would with a Republican one.

The only thing that separates most elected Democrats and Republicans are some narrow social issues that neither one really care about resolving.

Pathetic corporate whores and its only going to get worse with the Supreme Court ruling. The only thing now is they do not even have to fake it.

Why have fake Democrats when we can have real Republicans.

1. Actually that is not really true
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 03:24 PM by WI_DEM
The House has many democrats who have fought for progressive legislation and passed strong bills. Even in the Senate the majority of Dems have fought for a more liberal agenda--even on health care. It is the rules of the Senate which gives the minority and the 7 or 8 more conservative dems the power. I wish the fillibuster was gone.

I agree with Gov Rendell, though, and feel that the house should pass a strong health care bill and then dare the senate to fillibuster.

3. Locking
Inflammatory and not at all consistent with the "Who we are" part of this site.
