There is so too much “big” money in politics — especially secret money.  Most Democrats would like to fix that; Republicans block efforts at disclosure.

Another difference: Democrats want to make it easy to vote so more people will. Republicans want to make it harder, so more people won’t.  Look, for example, at how hard they’re working at this in Georgia, blocking the tens of thousands of new mainly African-American and Hispanic registrants because (the claim) they’ve found 25 out of 85,000 that were bogus.  And in loads of other states, with, it now seems, the help of George W. Bush’s appointments to the Supreme Court.  (Thanks again, Ralph Nader.)

But there’s a solution.

As I’ve written before:

Want your student loan payment slashed?  JUST VOTE!  . . .  Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way of this being done.

Want to boost the economy with a 40% raise hike for those who make minimum wage?  JUST VOTE!  . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way.

Want the bipartisan Senate immigration bill signed into law and boost the economy?  JUST VOTE!  . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way.

Want to boost the economy by repairing America’s crumbling infrastructure?  JUST VOTE!  . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way.

Want to enact the universal background checks that even 74% of NRA members favor?  JUST VOTE!  . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way.

Want ENDA passed?   JUST VOTE!  . . . Democrat, November 4, because the Republicans in Congress are all that stand in the way.

The Republicans currently serving in Congress pride themselves on being unwilling to compromise.  Want to break the gridlock and get America moving again?  Just take a couple of hours and vote.

It’s not rocket science.  We can do this. 

And if we don’t want Republicans controlling the Senate and, thus, confirmation of any new Supreme Court nominees to lifetime appointments — we’d better.
