A map of the Blue and Red U.S. House of Representatives

Madams and Sirs,
When you get together to do an autopsy on the most recent election results, don’t waste too much time.
We got spanked again because of actions like the one that just took place in the U.S. House of Representatives. Democrats voting to approve disabling of the Dodd Franks law and increased monetary donations.
Until we, as Democrats, grow some gonads and stand up for what we believe in we will continue to get stomped in elections.
We must go on the aggressive rather than trying to appease the Republicans for fear of losing something.
Offer the voters something that they are concerned about and they will come out and vote.
In congress add riders to bills seeking an increase in social security while suggesting an increase will stop us from increasing taxes on the 1 percent by any more than 10 percent.
Bring up a bill to eliminate or lower interest on student loans with a similar stipulation.
Bring up a bill to increase earned income credits and again the promise to restrict tax increases to the 1 percent to less than 10 percent. (This one fits in Michigan also.)
Promote Gun control!
These are the type of actions that will inspire the people and get the voters to the polls.
Now chew on this for a bit and do something positive.
I feel better now, thank you.
