If republicans were smart they would go with the push back, push through radical Republican laws through the senate, force America to choose between post birth abortions and no guns or freedom and babies.

Of course the DNC will just need to find a new high school/country music concert right before election time to fire up the media but itís better than just doing nothing.

I like the idea of gumming up the system with bills and debate that put the liberals on the defensive (let's give them something to think about other than, how can we screw the good people of MD today).... to do this we need an advocate in the MGA willing to take on the work load... who would be our best option for something like that. This needs to be coordinated.

Sadly Democrats are really good at using this technique and the Republicans donít bother to get involved. Throw as much stuff against the wall as you can to overwhelm the system and hope that Something sticks? End Rant

Obama care was ruled constitutional, all that is needed is to make it a tax. Democrats are all for taxation!

you guys ain't the only ones going full retard. or fuller retard.

today we have having hearings on bgc's. first offense misdemeanor, second felony.

funny, the everytown guy proposed a straw transfer to facilitate a transfer between 2 individuals who would not qualify. using a person related to both to take position and complete a transfer between 2 unrelated people. he was called on it. a little back peddle, teflon, and a D bill sponsor who ran interference.

10 days into the session, and about 110 left. oh boy, the rest should be fun!!!

Problem with that is Republicans don't control 60 Senate seats. It's easier to pass laws in the House because there is no Filibuster. You have 50%+1 of the vote, the law is passed.

In the Senate, you need 60 votes to end debate before you can call the actual vote.

But the other comments are spot on. The Republicans took the House and acted like a bunch of drunk idiots. Everyone for themselves, no coherent plan or strategy, stuff they had complained about for 6 years they were like "duhh...i dunno" when asked how they'd fix it."

Democrats are hitting the ground running. They know they may not get the stuff past the Senate, but they are auditioning for 2020. They know they can turn around in 2020 and say "Look at this awesome law we want, and if you elect more of us, we can have it."

Contrast that to the Republicans "Well the Democrats will shoot it down so why bother trying."

Absolutely correct. But Rs did have the votes to draft and modify bills in the Senate committee where there's no filibuster, and could have embedded pro 2A text in "must pass" bills. That wasn't done, not even once in 6 years.
