It is sad to see Boehner and Cantor in leadership roles, though not surprising. IMHO we have seen a successful cultural revolution take place since Nov 2008; one which, unless countered by patriots, can only lead to a nation more divided and one more composed of the haves and the have-nots. McConnell will continue his role as an obstructionist for two more years in the Senate no matter who is harmed. I've yet to read on this or other MB's how the supporters of the New Right see America's future. It's easy to write and proselytize an ideology which promises freedom, security and a robust economy simply by cutting taxes and getting out of the way, but is that a plan? It seems to be. Senator McConnell has said so. Unless the wealthiest Americans get tax 'relief' he will continue obstruct any and all business of the U.S. Senate - and he doesn't give a damn who gets hurt. Support for the base, the few, the rich, the selfish come first; country first, bull shit, simply a slogan, the one thing the Republican Party does well.
