According to a New York Times editorial, it is and very fast.

Let's check the facts:


A breakdown of the parties in the U.S. House of Representatives. ... 197 Republicans. 232 Democrats. 1 Libertarian. 5 Vacancies *. Live Floor Video. *Hunter (R) ...


As of 2020 there are 26 Republicans and 24 Democrats holding the office of governor in the states. There are 4 Democrats and 1 Republican (one is also a ...



In the 2014 United States Senate elections (the last regularly scheduled elections for class 2 Senate seats), the Republicans won nine seats from the Democrats and gained a majority in the Senate. Republicans defended that majority in 2016 and 2018, and now hold 53 Senate seats.


Cumulative numbers
As of October 2, 2020, Republicans controlled 52.01% of all state legislative seats nationally, while Democrats held 46.77%. Republicans held a majority in 59 chambers, and Democrats held the majority in 39 chambers. One chamber (Alaska House) was sharing power between two parties.[4]


IF you believe the NY Times, you need a reality check.HAHAHAHA!
One reason to think it might be is demographics. Seems the white population is slowly dying out while other races are slowly increasing. In about fifty years whites will be a minority in the good Ole US of A...GASP!!

No. It’s not dying. It’s dead.
Biden is dead. Brain dead. Why do you want to pay higher taxes? Joe promised to raise taxes.
On those of us making over $400k. I’m ok as long as all of us over that level pay. Those of you under that level are fine. Better off in fact.
Nope and a one party system is bad. $400k is a pittance living in Brookline MA.

Biden's plans will raise taxes on everybody. The 400K came from Bernie Sanders who said those are the rich people he wants to tax. You have it all screwed up.
He is too dumb to understand SALT DEDUCTIONS.
No. I’m actually way smarter than you and understand pretty much everything other than why retarded white dummies support Trump.
No you clearly do fucking not if you think repealing the Trump tax cuts wont give a tax cut to high income blue staters.

Explain what you know about the Trump tax cuts and SALT Deductions.

Says you. Its not as if our Gov't spends wisely. Endless wars, broken down school systems, ridiculous entitlements. $400k doesn't carry the same weight it did 20 years ago. You just looked stupid and are now back pedaling.

Where do you want the line to be drawn if not $400k? Is there any line that doesn’t have you whine like a bitch? I already know that answer.

I support a flat tax. But if you want increments, $1mil. as the middle class gets screwed otherwise.

Opinions vary. Once you admit you lied about being an Independent we may debate civilly again.

The poster does not even understand SALT DEDUCTIONS.

They likely think animal coyotes are smuggling people across the border.

SALT is part of the reason many are leaving NYC and Cali as you can no longer deduct your high state taxes off your Federal Return.

Exactly, and Pelosi wanted deductions back as part of the latest stimulus to take care if her wealthy friends.

60% of the tax cut went to the top 20%. Was top heavy. Everyone knows that. Repealing that will.. guess what....raise taxes on the top 20%. Wow. Novel.

You’re not making any points. Everyone knows what state taxes are... you make no point.

Still waiting. Admit you're a Leftist and we can debate civilly. I am very happy to continue butchering you here but if you want civility, I am offering a one time olive branch. Your choice.

Again, how does that help the middle class and yes $400k in the Boston area is middle class.

I respect a flat tax that starts at $30k or something with no deductions if the math worked out. If not I’d up the %.

I am OK with that. 20% in federal Then someone making $1mil pays $200k. I think that is more than fair since they also pay RE taxes, excise taxes and state taxes. I would also institute a 2% federal tax. This way wealthier consumers pay more based on consumption and even those who work under the table end up paying. Even drug dealers would be paying some federal dollars.
