    •  Well, that may be ok some day when the GOP (7+ / 0-)

      doesn't control the house, where all legislation is born, and I'm hoping that may become true in 2014, as if it looks like, the GOP continues to refuse to learn its lessons.

      But for now, it is the Tea Party Caucus in the house that is holding up EVERYTHING the majority of Americans believe in, even if it's a slim majority. It is the Tea Party Caucus that has kept this country from recovering from the Great Recession sooner and with less pain.  It is the Tea Party Caucus that is responsible for every rancid culture war issue that distracts from the real problems of this country.

      And Michelle Bachmann is the lead Mousekateer of the Tea Party Caucus.  She has more visibility and power than Alan West did, by far.
