  •  Obama & Reid don't really mind (0+ / 0-)

    Their goals are the same - to use a dysfunctional Senate to please corporate donors.

    If ConservaDems really wanted to protect those agencies, they would have committed to better filibuster reform.

    Their agreement in the latter probably contained a list of GOP obstructions the WH and Reid were willing to allow along with a few appointments the GOP are willing to let Obama make.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

    •  please stop with this falsehood. it is (0+ / 0-)

      counterproductive and it is simply untrue.

      this "corporate donor" accusation shows a total lack of understanding of how this government is functioning under the extremist behavior of the republicans.

      you are only giving the republicans/tea party cover when you make such fasle accusations.

      it is not accurate, it is insulting to keep reading and it is a flippin' conspiracy theory that has no basis in fact behind it.

      •  Since Citizens United (0+ / 0-)

        our government doesn't work the way it's supposed to.  There's been a major shift in power in our government. The incentives have been changed from representing constituents to representing those who can fund billion dollar political campaigns.  

        Until we get the money out of politics, this kind of legislative malpractice will continue.

        Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

        •  i so agree with you here! citizens united needs (0+ / 0-)

          to become CITIZENS united to correct the travesty brought into our system by the roberts court!  we no longer have three co-equal branches of government - we have two powers abusing their authority while the executive branch tried to go back to its normal function after bush!

          when only one branch tries to play by the rules, they get trampled by the other two.

    •  You are NO Progressive or Democrat (0+ / 0-)

      Do you enjoy coming here and stirring things up with lies and accusations?  Apparently so.  Please go somewhere like redstate, drudge, etc where you can commiserate with your like minded Bagger Bubble Buddies.
