The mid-term election is only weeks away and despite the lack of recovery for the vast majority of us, life is about to get a whole lot harder as the Senate is predicted to fall into the Republicans’ hands.
That leaves us with Barack Obama to guard the door from the lunatics. In other words, we’re totally screwed.
But why sink into despair? If you’re disappointed and angry at the way the last six years (and two to go) have turned out, you probably have good reason to be in spite of what Paul Krugman says. The Democrats are not the Chicago Cubs. We do not have to feel all sentimental about having a losing team all the time.
So, vent. Get it all out. What pisses you off the most about how the Democrats have let us down? Don’t be afraid to tell it like it is. Civility is for cotillions.
These student body president types may be perfectly content to ignore you or they may have absolutely no idea why you’re about to allow them to be voted out of office. Put them on notice in the comments below.
Registered Democrats only please. If you’re a Republican, Tea Party troublemaker or independent, please sit on your hands.
I’ll go first. Unemployment is still high for those of us 45-65. Wages are pathetic. But the thing that ticks me off the most is how Obamacare 1.) created two classes of American workers, 2.) did nothing to control costs, and 3.) forced the second class Americans without employer based health care into high deductible, tiny network, expensive insurance plans. Even with the subsidies, which many of us don’t get because we make too *little* money (like that’s supposed to make any damn sense), the plans are unaffordable. Krugman can go jump in a lake for all I care. Obamacare is awful.
Ok, your turn.
