I think the Dems need to get tough with their electorate about what is at stake in 2014 [View all]

should the GOP take control of both houses. This is not your George W. Bush's "Compassionate Conservatism" we're talking about here. This is your " you're on your own", pull the rug out from under the safety net brand of conservatism. Thom Tillis a favorite for Senator for North Carolina doesn't believe that there should be a minimum wage at all.


Dems should lay it out for their constituents on what they can expect. Full repeal of the ACA. Harsh limits on Unemployment Compensation, and the Food Stamp program. Privitization of Social Security. Redistricting on Steroids, as if that is were possible. More legislation drawn up by ALEC and the Koch Brothers. Fracking on steroids. More Keystone Pipelines, traversing our plains on their way to the gulf coast with their refined oil to be shipped out of this country. No more Planned Parenthood funding, and no more right to choose even if the mother's life is at stake. People who take their current rights for granted need to know what they can expect once these people gain unbridled control of both houses of Congress. Barack Obama is the only thing that has kept us out of putting troops on the ground in Egypt, Syria, permanently entranced in Afghanistan, and if John McCain had his way, on the Ukrainian border.
