    Let’s say we get watered-down “reform” that doesn’t change the R’s ability to block whatever they want.

    (I’d say that is likely.)

    Now what? where do we go from there?!?

    Susie, I think we all know that ship sailed years ago.

    Nothing about Washington DC is working for the benefit of the common citizen any longer and don’t expect it to be repaired (since the corporate FIX is now, clearly, “in” through funding both sides of every election and having their lobbyists, former congress critters, write current legislation to their benefit). i signed a petition to this effect this morning but there’s no incentive for anything to change from the way it is – especially with regard to climate change (we’ll be extinct soon anyway) or foreign policy (to keep the 1%’s gravy train traveling, though off the rails, for as long as it can) so it was probably a waste of time, but if it works, then hey, now we only have umpteen million other things that need serious attention and are being ignored.
