Why Democrats are pushing a series of bills doomed to fail - CSMonitor.com
This is exactly why Democrats are pushing these bills they know full well won't pass. It's horrible horrible politics, a waste of time and tax payers money and they should all lose their positions because of it.
I'm tired of politicians from both sides of the aisles carrying more about holding onto their position of power rather then doing their job, or the best they can do, and letting the votes decide their fate based on that. If you, as a politician, did everything you thought was right and work as hard as you could and the voters still voted you out, you weren't the right person for the job. Just accept it and move on.
