There are things we could do about it.
Those things do NOT include: cutting taxes on the rich, rejecting Medicaid expansion, crushing unions, opposing a higher minimum wage, preventing student loan refinancing, or blocking the revitalization of our infrastructure that would put millions to work in good jobs . . . all Republican priorities.
Speaking of despair . . . this progressive grandmother used to admire Lindsey Graham. Now — thanks to Lindsey — she fears democracy is dead.
And WE have the chance to get all this back on the right track!
A Democratic president working with a Democratic Senate would sign into law the many pro-average-American bills the Democratic-led House passed last year — to lower drug prices, raise wages, extend Medicaid, require universal background checks, require paper ballots, restore net neutrality, reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, and much more.
Quote of the Day
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.~H. L. Mencken
