I would have used much harsher language to discribe their behavior. But if I used it here I would get kicked off mylot. But I can tell you I have said it in my own home. The Democrats grandstanded in the last election on how high handed and unethical the republicans in congress were over the past 8 years...and how they would do better. "Drain the swamp". The american people were ticked off at the republicans behavior and voted them out in mass. Now the democrats are pulling the same BS that the republicans did and are not saying it is OK for them to do it because the Republicans did it. Hypocrite much? The dems tore the republicans apart for this kind of BS and now they go and do it. How stupid do they think the american people are? This is going to cost them big time and it should. The american public is sick and tired of the BS being done by both sides.
