"This post continues a list of bills that were passed by Democrats in Congress, and blocked by ALL of the Republicans in the Senate. Most of these bills had zero Republican votes in the House; a few of them had a handful of votes. A couple of them were even proposed by a Republican in the House. But every single one of these bills is being blocked by every single Republican in the Senate, all of whom are working in lockstep to prevent a vote. Keep in mind, there are enough Democrats willing to vote for these bills, most if not all of these bills could be law right now, if Republicans – ALL of them – weren’t using procedural measures to prevent the vote." ...per Milt Shook

The only thing I admire about the Republicans is how they can unite and work in lockstep, unfortunately it's always against good things. If only the Democrats could work together like this.

That's one of the strengths of democrats is they can have their own opinions. I wish they could have walked in lock step on single payer though. There were too many corpra-dems that made the good ones look ugly. Not as ugly as the republicans but still ugly. Need to get more progressive democrats in, get the tentacles of mega-corporate influence shaken off, it's wrapped around some of these politicians spines like a poison oak vine.
