    so....isn't the vote 50/50 now with Pence as the tie-breaker?
    A lot (maybe the whole ball of wax) depends on which way Collins and Murkowski goes.  I hope constituents in Maine and Alaska are putting on the pressure.
    Anyone can call them. I actually called Collins' office the other day
    Anyone can call, but honestly, do they pay attention to anyone that isn't a constituent - i.e. a voter?


    This vote will affect people outside their constituency.  

    You only leave your contact information if you want a response.  It's just a voice mail box.
    Many of their votes affect people outside of their constituents. I think it's wishful thinking that they'll pay attention to people who can't vote for them, but I wouldn't tell anyone not to try. 
    True, you haven't told anybody what to do or not do here but statements like:

    "Anyone can call, but honestly, do they pay attention to anyone that isn't a constituent - i.e. a voter?"
    "I think it's wishful thinking that they'll pay attention to people who can't vote for them..."

    seem disparaging of the attempts some of us have made by making these calls.  Minor point, but I'm not sure what the point of it is other than to be discouraging.


    We're living on the edge of something big. It's a fantastic time in history to be alive.

    To answer your opening question OP the Repub party is in power and has gone nowhere and is likely to survive all allegations unless something more than Russia or ptape is brought forward. 


    Why can't they get anything done?
    Actually he's done a shitload. A captain must repair and right his ship before steering the course.

    Really? These are mostly executive orders which this party used to pretend to hate.

    Why can't they get anything done legislatively despite controlling all branches of government?

    That list makes me sick. To summarize, he has single handedly expedited the extinction of humankind. A tall order, but he has done more than any President before him to lead us to that goal. Bravo.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Been talking about "repealing and replacing" for 7 years and cannot do it despite controlling all branches of government.


    I'll ask again--what happened to the republican party? Why can't they get anything done?

    I think it plays a role in many things.  Especially most of your comments around here... Do I think that the race card is overused, yes...yes I do.

    I agree with that too.  I also feel that the term racist is overused.  For instance “Hobby Lobby selling cotton is racist”.

    You can pretty much swap out trump for any bad behavior verb: "I'm going to go trump on your ass". "You just got trumped". There's a lot of possibilities.

    It's a small start but trump is untenable, particularly after the Mueller investigation really takes off after the first of the year.
