I am in physical pain. Luckily, this outcome could be seen coming from miles away and I had my supply of vicodin from the car "accident" resulting in "severe" back pain filled just in time. Anyone every notice how soft clouds look? Like, I just wanna pet them... like a giant puffy kitten... kitten cloud...

C'mon. Eli as VP? No way. She has too much experience to be the backup and tiebreaker for the Senate.




That's the thing tho', that legislative experience she has with Student Council would make her a perfect asset for keeping her Senators in line and working across the party aisle.

NononononNONONO.

Button, trigger, bad decision, wrong decision, and it's not going to happen. The Republicans have owned Nebraska since forever and still can't get the pipeline through.

If you support the Republicans, realize that this is a waste of their time. It was supposed to be in the ground 5 years ago, Hillary gave the green light as head of State Department (illegally) and it still didn't happen.

Go learn about it.

Further strengthening my point that those who are clamoring for impeachment aren't thinking things through. I'm glad we can agree on that.


"Doing something" is often worse than doing nothing. Congress was structured to keep stupid laws from being passed in the heat of passion. As much as I opposed Clinton, he at least was able to work with congress; even so it wasn't until the Republicans held congress that he was forced into a position of compromise. Obama and Harry Reed have been the heart of the "do nothing" congress. Enjoy your retirement Mr. Reed.

I want them to replace the ACA with something that works.
I expect them to moderate Obama's liberal agenda.
Get the Keystone Pipeline through.


"Liberal agenda"? The ACA is straight from the Heritage Foundation. It was proposed by conservatives as an alternative to a single-payer system. The person who implemented the state-level system upon which the ACA was eventually based was that most leftist of liberals, Mitt Romney.

I wont say anything until actual progress is made.
So for now, my viewpoint is:

"We traded one set of assholes for another."

Let's hope that I'm wrong...

I'm tired of politics, but mostly democrats and republicans, because either are going to do absolutely nothing productive. We either need a female or a gay guy as president, and some different party would actually be nice.

Wow... This is soooooooo the wrong place for this kind of discussion Oh well... "When in Rome..."

I don't see anything changing. Honestly, in politics nowadays people won't even acknowledge the other side. That is why we won't get
anywhere. The right speak of rationality, yet what is rational about not even tolerating the left? Same goes for the left, how can we progress as a society with so much hatred for each other. Over what? Simple ignorance and "A difference of opinions..."

Personally, I don't understand why we can't have a fiscally conservative but socially liberal party. Wouldn't that work for everyone?

It's not the ACA the Republicans hate, it's that Obama would get credit for it.

As for the midterm results, I feel putting lawmakers who don't believe in science in charge of the science committees is a recipe for disaster.

They will try to push things that make sense after years or stupidity...and Obama will wear out his veto pen. That's my guess. Or as usual Obama will just do what he pleases and not go through the other branches of government like he's supposed to.

Nevertheless, it seems I need to issue a correction. The year of interest for the ACA's origins in a Heritage Foundation proposal is 1989 (meaning the proposal wasn't a reply to the Clinton health proposal), and I also conflated the institutions of universal healthcare and single-payer (which are related, but distinct).

This does not, however, change the fact that the most vehemently opposed portions of the ACA find their origin in a Heritage Foundation proposal.
