    You all know my stance - if you don't like the law, change it legislatively. It may take longer, but the solution reflects the will of the majority of the people, not 9 men/women.
    Or put in the person in the executive branch who will enforce it the way you want. That's what we really have in today's oligarchy. Congress doesn't do any legislating at all! It's just an oligarchy of executive departments creating regulations as a loophole to get around having a government of the people, by the people, for the people.

      LOL. Suckers.

      All you Tea Partiers who got angry at the gubbmint for their reaction to the Great Recession but never stopped voting for Republicans?

      As ye sow shall ye reap.

      According to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), senators could vote as soon as Tuesday on a proposal to strip consumers of their right to sue many banks and other financial companies. If the vote prevails, consumers are likely to lose their right to sue credit card companies and many other financial firms in a real court and be forced to bring suits in a privatized arbitration system that tends to favor corporate parties.

      Additionally, the vote would permit many lenders to strip consumers of their right to bring a class action lawsuit against the lender.

      The House already approved a similar measure, largely along party lines.

        And that's just how Congress liked it.

        Thing is, you're not wrong, amazingly. But this has been dirven by a bipartisan shirking of responsibility by Members who want the trappings of power but never want to exercise it because that would lead to difficult decisions. In the case of conservatives it would lead to the exposure of their puerile ideology as unworkable and fraudulent.

        So they sit on their hands and force the executive to fill the vacuum, and then they whine about "executive overreach," which they didn't just cause, they planned.

          Yeah, I think we all knew it was a publicity stunt. So was Trump's run, until he started winning primaries.

                  Not unless they coalesce early. If there is just One Guy and he starts to develop a power base and money that gives a lot of cover to RNC types and Members to abandon Trump.

                  But a split would I think be lethal, because Trump's supporters aren't going to suddenly grow a cerebral cortex. He's got somewhere between 30-40% of the GOP sewed up no matter how badly he f-cks up. The only Valkyrie hope is One Ring To Rule Them All.

                  Obviously if they do switch horses the Trumpies will sabotage them in the general, maybe even writing in their fuhrer.

                      Kasich and Flake are both second-fiddle material at this point. Safe, boring Veep picks back in saner times. Orange Droolius would shred them both. He'll joke about Flake being a polygamist, or call Kasich an Obama brown-noser because he was sane enough to do the Medicaid expansion. His moronic voters will eat it up.

                            On Tuesday, top House Republicans launched a pair of investigations. The Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees will jointly investigate the FBI’s probe into Clinton’s handling of classified documents. Meanwhile, the latter committee with the Intelligence committee will jointly probe the sale of a uranium company to a Russian firm when Clinton was secretary of State.
