    about the GOP's continuing stranglehold at the state level. This is certainly true in Texas, which also votes Republican in national races and just replaced a bland, moderate, relatively inoffensive Senator with the craziest, most arrogant teabagger freak ever. It's also true in some of the more purple states. What they can't achieve at the national level, they will impose at the state level. Just look at the trail of destruction already being created by their slashing of education, healthcare, and infrastructure funds, all to give tax breaks to their wealthy bedfellows. Just today I read that North Carolina is gutting unemployment benefits - not just state money, but rejecting federal funds as well.
