    A fairly good night for the Dems, really: not counting the second Dem candidate in California, still 42 million Dem votes to 39 million GOP in the Senate defeat; and in the House, 35 Dem net gains is the best since 1976. This disparity between the popular vote and who wins is going to become a major political problem for the US if it keeps on happening. Another example is how 94% support background checks on prospective gun owners but the Senate rejects them.

    I'd be in agreement with Chris Hedges but whatabout(it couldn't be that obvious, could it)the 33 Trillion? Played for fools as usual

    'Scum versus scum. That sums up this election season. Is it any wonder that 100 million Americans don’t bother to vote? When all you are offered is Bob One or Bob Two, why bother? One-fourth of Democratic challengers in competitive House districts in this week’s elections have backgrounds in the CIA, the military, the National Security Council or the State Department. Nearly all candidates on the ballots in House races are corporate-sponsored, with a few lonely exceptions such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, members of the Democratic Socialists of America who are running as Democrats. The securities and finance industry has backed Democratic congressional candidates 63 percent to 37 percent over Republicans, according to data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics. Democratic candidates and political action committees have received $56.8 million, compared with Republicans’ $33.4 million, the center reported. The broader sector of finance, insurance and real estate, it found, has given $174 million to Democratic candidates, against $157 million to Republicans. And Michael Bloomberg, weighing his own presidential run, has pledged $100 million to elect a Democratic Congress.'
