Can We Fire the Senate?
I wish we could fire them all. After the 2006 election, I had some modest optomism that the congressional democrats might show a little bit of a spine. That has not happened. In the latest move, Senate Republicans blocked an economic stimulus package. While the stimulus package was mostly smoke and mirrors, it would be nice to see something get done by the democrats. Watching Harry Reid cave on FISA, subpeonas, and children's health care gets really frustrating, but as Digby says Senate Republicans are Obstructionists of the highest order. We need to elect tougher Senators if we're ever going to see any real change.
