Whatever Republicans or Democrats win they both win it, in corporate party solidarity together.

If Democrats were the Solution, we wouldn't have the Problems.

Obama tries to be fair, compromise & help middle c lass but GOP stalls blocks filiibusters smears at every turn Fox Beck Hannity demonize him. . GOP Bagger run congress demand even more more corp tax cuts- loopholes- subsides and more GOP deregulation...We tried that since 1981 Reaganomics IT failed . Corp run media does not tell us the facts behind the story . Investigative Jouirnalism as we knew it years ago is dead. Media just repeats what each side says without clarifying who is fibbing / leaving out pertinent info. CNN needs Ted Turner back That man had cajones. Fox GOP show is a disgrace. Fox has millions of loyal fans / many are Obama haters.. Rush has millions of ditto heads. whom he speaks for and to. Fans do not question his honesty . Sad comment on voters ability to think logically, check facts- use reason. I'm glad I grew up when public schools gave kids an excellent education . We had NO calculators to do our math for us ..and no google to search for info . We went to the library . NO Face book NO video games NO I phones We were always active walking, jumping rope, swimming in the comm pool, playing hop scotch, tag Your IT yes I am that old 68 .!

Apparently, according to C Span the GOP are going to discuss the payroll tax cut extension at 5 PM EST. I have C Span on now so we'll see who gives this time around. Amazingly even Karl Rove is now telling the House to vote on the Senate bill, so he's joined with McConnell on this one.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
