Using Power

When the Dems had a majority in both houses of Congress, we were told that they could do nothing about anything, even in the depths of the Great Financial Crisis, because of the Republicans blocking it all. The Republicans which, by the way, were (definitionally) a minority party at that time.

Now that the Dems are themselves a minority party, but only by a small amount in the Senate, we are again told that the Democrats are still utterly powerless.

Wake up and realize that the Democrats just don’t want to do the right thing. It has nothing to do with whether they are the majority or minority party. They have been equally useless in either case. What matters is they have absolutely no interest in upsetting or altering the status quo.
