Proving once again that party loyalty affects the reasoning part of the brain, the Democrats are introducing legislation, HR 4694 that will cut private funding for candidates running for House seats. It will also mandate public funds for candidates of the "two major parties" (there are two major parties?)Let me see, corruption, cronyism, incompetence and crimes being committed by the Republicans in Washington DC and this is the best they can do?
Obviously, the Democrats are feeling threatened and know they can no longer hold on to their base as they are no longer an opposition, party, merely a mirror of the Republicants. Even 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton supports the war in Iraq, even when a majority of Americans no longer do. So rather than act like an opposition party, the Democraps are in a power grab to hang onto what little they have left by being as party oriented as the Republicans.
It would be cynical to think that the Democrats are anxious to introduce legislation they know the Republicans will vote on. This will give the appearance of Congress not being so partisan. And while I may not care too much for the Democrats, it would be nice to see the Democrats regain control of Congress, so that if they didn't start impeachment proceedings, at least they may stop this bill from being passed. But, once again, we're talking about the Democrats, and one thing they never fail to deliver, it's disappointment.
