  •  One thing I read is that the House members (0+ / 0-)

    have raised a ton of dough and the big-time operatives working for the Senators are looking to appropriate that money for their candidates.
    That's my takeaway.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    •  Spending on political propaganda is good (0+ / 0-)

      for the economy because it keeps the dollars moving. Also, it keeps media enterprises in the black.

    •  Yeah, when you are receiving (2+ / 0-)

      a huge paycheck and benefits from the taxpayers to legislate and fix problems, then spend exactly zero time legislating and fixing problems, you can pretty much sit in your publicly-funded office all day trading favors to plutocrats for campaign money.  House republicans are quite possibly the worst human beings (using that term loosely) on earth.  

      •  I was referring to the Dems. Dem House members (1+ / 0-)

        have raised a bunch of money, and the bigwigs want to use it for the Senate instead.
        I know I'm skewing this a little but I'm p/o-ed. If Senate Dems can't raise enough money to stay in office maybe there's a reason.

        •  Let's remember that it was the "Senate Stall" that (0+ / 0-)

          delayed the ACA, the financial sector reform, and ran out the clock on energy/jobs back in 2009/2010 and created so much disgruntlement it cost us the House.

          We should never forget that.
