2022 Midterm Elections

Democrats Lost Because They Failed To Move Swiftly On Infrastructure Legislation

It is not unusual for the party in the White House to lose in elections a year later, and particularly in the Virginia Gubernatorial race.

But the loss of Virginia to Republicans, and the extremely close vote in New Jersey, are a danger sign, a warning sign, to Democrats for the upcoming midterm 2022 elections, when the entire House of Representatives, one third of the US Senate, and 36 gubernatorial elections will take place a year from now.

Looking back, it was a mistake to hold the Physical Infrastructure bill hostage over the Social Infrastructure bill, as the Democrats could not show any actual accomplishment on their agenda.

The progressives can be blamed for this, sadly to say, but now it is urgent that action take place on both bills very soon, so that the Democrats have a record of what they are doing to improve the lives of the American people.

One must remember that Donald Trump and the Republicans took no action on infrastructure, and would not do so on social infrastructure.

So the Democrats need to be able to show they can produce results, and play hardball in the upcoming campaigns.

The nation’s future is at stake, so no time to be depressed, and instead time to move ahead aggressively!

Medicare Expansion Crucial Part Of Social Infrastructure Legislation, Needs To Be Promoted By Democrats!

The Democratic Party leadership needs to do a real promotion of Medicare expansion, which would encourage older people to vote Democratic in the 2022 Midterm Elections.

If left to Republicans, there would be the end of Medicare, passed under Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965, and the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care), passed under Barack Obama in 2010.

It is time to lower the Medicare eligible age to 60, and to provide senior citizens with dental care, vision care, and hearing coverage!

There are aspects of the Social Infrastructure proposal that may not be possible to accomplish, but this portion of the expansion under consideration is essential, and would be politically a winner!

2021 Elections, And Plans For Running For Office In 2022 Is Upon Us

Here we are, about a month out from the comparatively small number of elections taking place this November.

This includes the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey; the Mayoral Election in New York City; and many other municipal elections in smaller cities.

The only real concern for Democrats is Virginia, where former Governor Terry McAuliffe is being challenged by Republican Glenn Youngkin.

The New Jersey gubernatorial race seems an easy win for Governor Phil Murphy, and the NYC Mayoralty race seems an easy win for Eric Adams.

Once these elections are over, the real competition for the Senate and House of Representatives seats in 2022 Midterms begins, as well as gubernatorial races, particularly the latter for Republicans, who plan to run for President, such Trump lackeys as Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Kristi Noem of South Dakota!

A 50-50 Democratic Controlled Senate Could Any Time Switch To Control By Republicans!

With the reality in 2021 of a 50-50 US Senate, the ability of the Democratic majority to get the Joe Biden agenda adopted becomes a constant headache, and the inability to adjust the filibuster to allow votes on some issues without a 60 member majority support is infuriating.

And behind the scenes, there are concerns over the distinct possibility that were a Democratic Senator to die or become incapacitated and be unable to vote, such event would literally switch control of the Senate back to the Republicans, and Mitch McConnell.

The Senate has 5 members over 80, and 25 members in their 70s, an all time high such number, and the average age of all Senators is 63, also the highest in the history of the Senate.

18 of these 30 members over 70 and into their 80s are Democrats, so in many respects, the clock is ticking, and it is essential for quick action on a multitude of issues before a possible tragedy occurs.

Also, history tells us that the party NOT in the White House tends to gain seats in the midterm elections that follow, and that portends a disaster for the Democrats, with an evenly divided Senate and only a 6 vote margin in the House of Representatives.

Of course, the tumult around Donald Trump and the “Big Lie” might help the Democrats to gain seats, and history is not a guarantee for the party out of power in both houses of Congress.

But this is certainly a time of concern, including the possible future retirement, although clearly not imminent, of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer!

Kevin McCarthy, The Republican Party, Marjorie Taylor Greene, And Antisemitism

Kevin McCarthy has a problem on his hands, and chose to ignore it until finally forced to speak up and condemn Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia for comparing a mask mandate in the House of Representatives to the Holocaust that killed six million Jews.

Greene is an antisemite, who crazily came up with the concept of Jewish space lasers as the cause for wildfires in California and other Western states, rather than the reality of Climate Change.

The Republican Party is unwilling to promote the expulsion of Greene, who already has been forced off all committees in the House of Representatives, and now has time to cause more trouble, and yet have no impact on House committees or actions.

The woman is mentally ill, and needs to be committed to a mental institution as a danger to society!

The Republican Party is appealing to the worst elements in America, and the thought that the party could be the majority after the 2022 midterm elections is terrifying!

Kevin McCarthy wants so much to be Speaker of the House, that he will tolerate any whackos in the Republican Conference.

And now another whacko, Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, has declared she wants to run for Speaker against McCarthy in 2022!

Kevin McCarthy Demonstrates Why He Should Be Removed From Congress!

From Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s to Kevin McCarthy in the 2020s!

The Republican Party has gone from the destructive “McCarthyism” of seventy years ago to the destructive Trumpism of the 2020s, and in both cases, a McCarthy is the villain!

They are not related in any way, other than being despicable power grabbers who have no principles other than self aggrandizement!

McCarthy wants desperately to be Speaker of the House, and everything must be done to prevent that from happening in the midterm 2022 elections!

McCarthy should be summarily removed from House Republican leadership, and should be removed from Congress for his treason and sedition on January 6, and his sycophancy toward Donald Trump, when he knows that Trump is evil and a danger to American democracy!

McCarthy has condemned himself in history, and will be seen as a promoter of Fascist tyranny in history!

He should never have a restful sleep ever again for the damage he has done, and absolutely no conscience or common decency!
