To The Daily Sun,
Well it seems progressives are trying to make an issue of the Senate refusing to deal with the now open seat on the Supreme Court as if that's some kind of hot-button issue to most voters.
Lucy Natkiel writes that it's plain that the Senate must consider any nomination Obama sends them. Okay, if it makes her feel better Republicans can take any Obama nomination into committee then table it. There is no requirement that they must let it come up for a vote. Even if it did, Republicans would reject it.
Seems to me progressives are now choking on their own medicine, prescribed by Chuck Schumer. What comes around goes around, the old saying says.
Let's be aware that the big issues this election are, in no special order, the economy, illegal immigration and national defense (as regards to terrorism especially). Progressives are not strong in any of these areas that's why their talking points are all about special interest groups issues.
Laughably, every time they bring up one of these and are asked how it can be payed for they say tax the rich. News flash, the rich are already being taxed. Some are parking their money overseas, many are moving their businesses out of the country (Carrier Air Conditioner Co. is moving to Mexico ). So at what point will progressives find that that well has a bottom.
Do we have to wait until the entire economy collapses bringing down the economies of the rest of the world with it? And will progressives then still be blaming Wall Street and the big banks? Won't really matter then because you and I will be scrambling for something to eat and a way to heat our homes when winter comes, those of us that have homes that is.
Bottom line is socialism doesn't work unless it can steal other people's money, and at some point that money drys up.
