So. The democrats are back in power. Now we can expect major changes, major announcements, better management of social services, better management of the Iraq war, better……oh please. Give me a break.
A set of corrupt politicians have been replaced by politicians who have not raised their pinky finger in protest against the current administration. There are a few progressive democrats that have been chosen but I wonder how long would it take for them to conform to the system? “All The King’s Men” anyone?
I think the first 100 days in which the democrats have promised to raise the minimum wage rates, look at the whole immigration issue, implement a 9/11 commission’s recommendations and end subsidies for big oil, will show how much of a back bone do the democrats have. If they role over on any one of these issues, we will know the truth. In the meantime, nothing’s changed.
