I just like straight facts
Then it might be worthwhile to note that the Democrats may now control committee assignments in Congress, but--as Bear notes above-- they are nowhere near veto-proof majorities in either house. To introduce bills which have no chance of passage would doubtless cause people like you to accuse them of window dressing.
This is worth repeating, because the Internets are full of republican agitprop accusing the "Democratic Congress" of failing to solve America's problems. 49 is not a majority of 100.
51 and every number between 51 and 100 is a majority. The Democrats have 49 seats. 49. For the majority, you have to wait until November.
Bernie Sanders is an independent who usually votes with the Democrats but even 50 votes is not a majority, much less anywhere near
a veto-proof majority. Lieberman pretends to be an Independent but he's really a Republican in drag. (I believe this has become clear to everone lately.)
Meanwhile, it's the president who signs laws into effect. If he doesn't like them, he doesn't sign them. To override a veto, you need 67
seats in the Senate.
In the House, Democrats now hold a 233-202 advantage but a veto-proof majority
would be 290
seats. So they're nowhere near
being able to do anything good without Bush's approval. Which means they're nowhere near being able to do anything good.
Wait until November. Remember, things can only get better.
