    They HAVE one. Nanci Pelosi said so in this 2006 press release trying to get the Dems elected:

    Press Release :: Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, California, 8th District

    So I wonder what's keeping them from unveiling their common sense plan after all this time? It's kind of like Ross Perot and that damned manila envelope he had all his "answers" in but never opened. :lol:

    The problem is the Dems have only a slim majority in the Senate. The republicans, partisan hacks and stone-wallers that they are, still have enough power to make sure nothing improves.

    That should change in November.

    Yeah, Ravi...you know if they'd TRIED to do anything you might be able to make that argument. But they haven't. Nor have they unveiled this supposed common sense plan.

    Yeah some plan. She was probably just waiting for the Republicans to do the heavy lifting so we could get the $20 a barrel oil the Rupert Murdoch said would come out of the US invasion of Iraq. I can't wait for us to establish control and watch the gas prices fall.

    They are voting, today I believe, on windfall taxes and eliminating the tax breaks that oil companies enjoy.

    Well, the Dems will have a larger majority after November. Then the GOP will have a harder time blocking legislation. The 2006 vote against the GOP was not the end, it was just the beginning.

    Only problem with that is the Dems are typically no better than the GOP, so it will end up cycling the other way again. Inevitable.
