The Democrats have the slightest of majorities in the Senate. They should use it for all it’s worth whenever they can. The Republicans have stonewalled and ignored needs for long enough. From all appearances, they don’t stand for anything except obstruction, and trying to keep things white. They’ve been hijacked by a debilitating self-interest and heartlessness, and just plain lunacy, which apparently includes an openness to violence.
You gotta have a heart. It’s not all about fiscal conservatism and small government and tax breaks for the influence peddlers, and whatever else they’re into now.
There is a role for government to play. Especially lately. Especially now.
