The simple fact that aid for disaster victims has become a partisan issue that holds up the legislature tells us two things about the country's politics:
- The system is broken when even a minority of insane people can grind the wheels of government to a halt and then use massive amounts of corporate money to trick the electorate into forgetting their apathy.
- What does it tell you about the obstructing party? Do they care more about the American people, or attacking the other party through stalling EVERYTHING.
The Second piece of good news is the Elisabeth Warren will be running for senate this next election cycle. Warren is a very good liberal politician who will bring a much needed progressive voice to the senate. Not only is Warren competent, but she is actually willing to stand up for what she believes in, if you want examples of this you can look online for the videos of her CFPB hearings, not once does she back down.
