I want the Democrats to do this. I really do.
Oh noes, but what will happen to the Democrats when they’re in the minority?
I’ll tell you: Voters will see what happens when the Republicans get their way. Democracy! During the Bush era, Democrats fought hard to modify the worst of the Republican abuses because, well, they wanted to make it not as bad.
How long do you think it will take voters to figure out which policies they want to support?
Besides, I do believe elections have consequences. As it stands now, Democrats get to hide behind Republican obstructionism and I’d like to see an end to that.
