    They're already heading home for the 4th of July "break."  Too bad the unemployed don't get a little break from the soul-numbing withdrawal of hope that the Senate has dumped on them.....

      getting this done. I know we expect to get it done when we have a new WV senator, but this, sadly, is not the last time it is going to be needed.

      Getting Democrats together and keeping them that way is like herding cats that are high on meth, through L.A., during an earthquake, in the rain -6.25, -6.10

      •  It's just so infruriating (0+ / 0-)

        to see them take off for fireworks, beer, and brats while people are in such horrible shape.  Why didn't Harry make them hang around?  I was angry when they let everyone go home and trash HCR last summer, but this is exponentially worse.  HCR did get done.  Even if they come back and act right away, so many people will have been irreparably harmed.  How many will be driven to drink, domestic violence, even suicide before the 12th?
