1. I'm sure they'll be lying awake at night...

BTW, you can actually GET progressives elected in Indiana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri and Montana?

Right?

2. Heh. I always thought...

time is better spent trying to to switch Republican seats rather than to risk losing Democratic ones.

But, methinks that post is not really all that serious, eh?

which I think is one of the more important issues we face.

13. No, but I can try. I would put up progressives in the primary against them.

 

No progressive acting republican lite, but people that really believe in the benefits of true progressivism. I think if it is communicated the right way (complete honesty) we would have a fighting chance.

28. Anyone who betrays the people who elected them by supporting and voting for policies that

are bad for the people even if they are good for Wall St, at this point in time should be lying awake at night.

See two midterms now where the people refused to send them back to DC as their reps.

Voters know what's good for them and what is not. The fact that DC doesn't listen to them, is no longer their concern. They have found better ways of getting the kind of legislation the voters want and of refusing to hold their noses anymore just to 'win'. Winning what? Winning should mean you call the shots, compromise to YOUR advantage and make sure the losers know you mean business.

It's amazing how a few people who are so out of touch with the working class actually believe the voters are not capable of knowing 'what's good for them'. They know, and after a long time of going along with the status quo, while being ignored once elections are over, many are taking matters into their own hands and focusing where they CAN control what directly affects them, locally and in their own states.

I'd like to see more farmers and carpenters, hotel workers and fast food workers and Fire Fighters in Congress. All those wealthy lawyers and former Corporate CEOs who are currently running things, have no clue about ordinary people and appear to not want to.

39. Find one Democrat in either the House or the Senate who votes with the party 50% of the time

 

Go ahead. Here's a hint, there isn't one. Likewise there isn't a single Republican who votes 50% of the time with their party.

Here's a link for you to try to find one:

http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/113/

The closest you can get is 59% with the Democratic party for a Rep from Utah. I don't know why they list Ed Markey as only voting with Democrats 55% of the time, but when you dig into his votes on his page on the site above it lists him as voting with Democrats 98% of the time.

23. You are very shortsighted if you got that from my post.

 

The question and my voting pattern have nothing to do with each other, I am wondering how many of them are pandering to get re-elected...is that really hard to see? Is that a good thing!? No, I don't think so. Also I wonder how much they are going to benefit from this monster getting passed.

You can see whatever you want to see, but giving up will never happen on my account.

29. Yes, where people vote based on if they have to look for another job

 

or if their vote will help them keep their job. How much will this help them, will it increase their pay or hours of work? I think a lot of people vote based on their wallet.

41. DC is a numbers game.

 

There aren't enough Democrats in the Senate for Democrats to set the agenda, so instead, you have the Republicans setting the agenda.

And this post suggest we should have EVEN FEWER Democrats in the Senate.

That's pure insanity.

Not wise, imo. I understand not approving of their votes on some matters, but you and all Dems MUST recognize the harm long-term losses of the Senate and House may mean, considering the utter insanity afoot these days.

31. Have you spent much time studying Civics? If you haven't it would be a good time

To find out just how judges are confirmed and how laws are passed. We are going to see just how it is to live with a GOP Congress, if you think a GOP Congress is going to vote the way you want you just may be disappointed. Also, there are committees in Congress and one's position is determined somewhat by seniority. Try working together as Democrats and spend the time and effort on electing more Democrats.

33. Mark Warner ran against Ed Gillespie. I live in VA ...

and the Republican party in my state also tacked on, as their Lt. Gov. nominee, a gentleman by the name of E. W. Jackson. Mr. Jackson ran on a platform assailing the "Democrat" party's desire to implement a "Lesbian, Homosexual, Bi-sexual, Transgender vision" for Virginia and the rest of America.
If it's all the same to you, I will happily state that knowing what I know now, I will contact my Senator's office to let him know when I disagree with his position, but I would happily vote once more for Mark Warner and the Democratic ticket.
