Democrats at work: they don't care, they don't have to

By a vote of 52 to 45, the Senate rejected a jobs package that would've extended unemployment insurance, offered some tax breaks to individuals and businesses, kept doctors in the Medicare program and more.

Ezra Klein, June 16

We know Republicans represent the rapacious rich, but we elect Democrats to try to get a little balance on a corporate-tilted deck. With votes like these, why bother?

Oh yeah, but the Republicans are also bat-shit crazy flat-earthers, religious and sexual bigots, and always ready for another nice little war. So we have to elect Democrats.

Democrats should not be surprised if come November, a lot of people ask, why bother?
