    I'll take it at face value. The core problem is that party-affiliation doesn't make enough difference.

    Dems have had power before - what did they do with it????

    Nothing much. Gerrymandering is nothing more than "the means by which GOP dictates the disposition of money to their selected subset of the 132".

    Put filibuster-proof Dem majority in congress and senate right now - know what we'll get? We'll get exactly what we're getting now - medicare cuts etc..

    The system as it now exists is broken
