The 117th United States Congress

Recommended Posts

Katie Porter is off the Finance committee.

That sucks. Big time.

She held feet to the fire.... but I guess too many politicos depend on the $$ coming to them from big businesses that she poked.

Tragic. IMO.

what's comic is that Mitt may be the absolutely most archaic thinking man in the Senate. He is practically in the Devine Right of Kings school of governing philosophy, yet simply because he couples that with some sense of personal integrity, honor and willingness to live in the world of the real, he gets called a closet Dem. If there is anyone is the Senate who I could never see becoming a Dem - it's Mitt. He is more like an Amash in his absolute distance from liberalism, but from the Royalist side instead of the libertarian.

I still think if Roberts rules the other way on Obamacare that Romney wins in '12.  Once that decision hit then the air went out of the campaign among the extreme base.  And who knows where we'd be today in terms of presidential politics.

I also remember Bill Maher in early 2017 lamenting partisianship, even his own, on his show.  Something like "Look, I gave Obama $2M dollars but... if Romney had won.... we'd have been fine.  Nothing like the **** show we are looking at now"

At no time in history could a Mitt Romney ever be a Dem.

Now, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Steve King, on the other hand ...

Norman Ornstein on the tele arguing they should make GOP senators actually filibuster,  as in keep talking.  Make the feel a burden for filibustering.

I like it.

this would be a reasonable 1st step. If a minority wants to stop something they should at least be willing to put some skin in the game.

So what is Sinema doing here? I'm on the fence about the minimum wage increase but this doesn't look good.

Only his was not making a show to keep status quo on starvation wages, but rather for people to keep their healthcare. Big optics difference.

And, apparently, McCain wasn't carrying some expensive Lululemon bag.
