The Top 11 Things the Dems Absolutely Must Do in the House


#69

Pelosi will cut Social Security in the name of bipartisanship.


#70

Yes, VA for all. Take all the profit out of medical care.


#71

And build the wall too. And then she will turn around and wonder in 2020 why Trump got reelected.


#72

Pelosi won’t be running committees, or writing a budget by herself.


#73

I’m starting to think that you should be writing for CD rather than just commenting. The “journalism by quoting Twitter” thing going on here is getting a bit tiresome, and a bit of real analysis would be welcome.


#74

Juan, you’re kidding, right? I see zero chance the Democratic House of Representatives will act on any of the 11 issues you outline (BTW, I support every one mentioned). My representative has already announced that getting Trump to release his tax returns will be his first priority. I expect no change because the Democratic party does not want to change – the money comes from being Republican-lite.


#75

You are right. It has been nearly 20 years since Bush was appointed to the presidency by the US Supreme Court because of crappy voting procedures and things have only gotten worse. We need full national standardization of voting procedures and methods. We need to get partisans out of the role of managing and supervising elections - that can best be done by citizens or civil servants. Finally, we need to replace all voting machines with paper ballots and any new machines need to combine paper ballots with machines to fill them out and tabulate the results – at multiple points in the process to ensure accuracy.


#76

Deals are done by both sides giving something up to the other. Republicans always ask for it all and the Democrats are pliant enough to go along. Not a negotiation, but it makes obstructionism preferable.

#78

You mean you think he hasn’t been? Where have you been for the last 3 years?


#79

Are you kidding? Conservatives got the ball rolling on this slow-motion coup after Barry Goldwater lost the 1964 presidential election. They began to set up the marble maze of money that has funded politicians and the network of right wing PR firms masquerading as think tanks that’s pushed reactionary economics and ultra-conservative framing ever since.

It is both. Clearly it is a tax. Just look at your W2. Clearly it is a flat tax, as each person pays the same percentage, regardless of income. Clearly it’s capped, unlike the the flat tax concept that Cons and Libertarians love to champion.
