So, here’s where we are on the subject of giving our country away to the super wealthy. If Democrats don’t show up at the polls in HUGE numbers in 2016, those of us who have clucked that the sky really IS falling will have failed to accomplish anything.
Just over six months after winning back the Senate, Mitch McConnell’s GOP majority is proving to be more dysfunctional than ever.
A university professor heavily funded by the Koch brothers has very publicly and openly called for less democracy to reduce the power of the majority.
Republicans ran on, and won big with, their claim that the GOP is “the party of solutions” founded on conservative pro-growth economic policies, deregulation, and tax cuts for the rich they claimed were more successful than anything “hapless” Democrats or Obama could ever hope to achieve. This is despite the President’s nearly five-year job growth record, world-leading GDP growth, and increased revenue paying down the nation’s debt at a record pace.
The current Republican congress wants to cut social security benefits. The House Budget Chair made that clear again during a Monday speech.

The report was declassified August 7, but not released in total until a couple of days ago, allegedly to give assorted intelligence agencies a chance to sign off on it.

After a not-so-really-heated contest between the Republicans and Democrats, California still remains blue, and our State elected leaders are all Democrats.
Republican strategist Frank Luntz said that after winning the Senate majority, Republicans should work with Democrats and President Obama to find “common-sense solutions” to a number of issues. Luntz was behind the plan to create gridlock in Washington to hurt Democrats and Obama.
Gordon Klingenschmitt brings his demonic obsessions to the Colorado State Senate and Michael Peroutka his neo-Confederate secessionism to Anne Arundel County, Maryland

We can’t blame this on Obama. And we can’t blame it on Detroit voters not turning out at the polls either. Despite high turnout in Detroit, Republican Rick Snyder was re-elected as Governor of Michigan.
Nine hour voting lines in my hometown city of Chicago wasn’t the only unfortunate news coming out of the Land of Lincoln this morning. For the first time since 1998, with 99 percent of the state’s precincts reporting, Illinois has a Republican Governor.
