    Assistance for the poor

    Until 2013...meaning We The People had better damn well vote.

    Yeah, I know...he's just doing this to win the election...blahblahblah.

    The first two years Nancy busted her keister to get legislation through - worked their keisters off.

    We gave her the farce of 60 votes - only they weren't.  Liebermann...Baucus...Landrieu...Bayh...should I go on?

    The options are clear in 2010.  It's not just getting the House back.  it's fortifying the Senate.

    Obviously, Dems can only gain ten Senators, as 23 of the 33 seats are currently Dem seats.  I'm up for working hard to see if we can sweep them.  Then we can put some legit, progrssive legislation forth.  Maybe we'll even give Reid enough stones to rewrite the rules so Richard Shelby can't take the whole place hostage.

    Anyone care to join me?

    Anyone else?

    My book idea: I go back in time, translate "Atlas Shrugged" into ancient Hebrew and give it to Jesus for his Bar Mitzvah present...and follow his life's much different trajectory. Working title: Shrug This...
