The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Potomaniacly Ugly!

The Good! *Florida Democratic State Legislators* Take that Rick Scott. Two Democratic State Senators in the Sunshine State have introduced two bills that would re-institute the 14 days of early voting in Florida - that Governor Scott had reduced to only 8. Both bills could also increase the number of voting hours on each early-voting day. Unfortunately - Republicans control both chambers of the state legislature - but incoming Republican leaders have suggested that they would be amenable to changing voting laws in Florida. Let's hope that's the case - so that every Floridian that has the right to vote is able to in upcoming elections.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Kedogenously Ugly!

The Good! *Elizabeth Warren* It was revealed yesterday that Senator-Elect Warren will have a seat on the highly influentional Senate Banking Committee - which is probably the worst nightmare of Wall Street fat cats. In fact - the finance industry is so afraid of Warren that it spent a whopping $6 million dollars trying to defeat her in the election. With a seat on the Banking Committee - Warren will be able to help protect the landmark Dodd-Frank financial reform law from being watered down. If I were a CEO on Wall Street - I'd be pretty scared right now - because Senator-Elect Warren is ready and willing to protect the American people from the harmful actions of the big banks.

And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
