Then lets embrace it when WE HAVE THE SENATE.
I disagree. By definition, almost ANYTHING the government does will be bad (possibly except confirming judicial nominees). Therefore the less stuff that makes it through, the fewer hits freedom will take. Think how often their actions increase and metastasize government as opposed to how often they repeal laws and regulations, dissolve departments, etc. Even when Republicans are in charge, gridlock is probably good, especially if you balance it against the downside of giving the [other] statists a free hand when they're in the majority.
“Then lets embrace it when WE HAVE THE SENATE.”
You’re DREAMING. We’re not capable of that, and McCain would NEVER permit, just like he sabotoged it in 2003 or so (gang of 14).
McCain will ONLY support the reform when the Democrats run the ship...and his lackeys are enough to prevent ANY reform when Republicans are in charge.
As it is, let Reid take the hit, then we simply continue HIS rules when we take charge...assuming, of course, we’re even capable of that.
