    Schmidt; yes I agree for a change with you; what he is doing right now does not help his cause, but only helps Trump. So I think like you, that he should quit. The only thing he should fight for is to get some of his idea's on the "platform" But as you and I said before; platform "promises" are doomed to fail, ask Obama.

    The long-held Republican nightmare that a champion of working-class people and the common good — one who has dedicated his political career to curbing poverty and injustice while denouncing corporate greed, endless war, and the cruelty of a for-profit health system that leaves millions upon millions uninsured or without affordable access to care — would assume the powerful position of chairing the Senate Budget Committee is about to become reality.

    “Time to face the harsh reality, socialist Bernie Sanders will become the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee. He has vowed to use his position to enact his progressive agenda on healthcare, climate, infrastructure spending, and cutting defense spending,” Nikki Haley tweeted Saturday.

    Among the chief powers that the chair of the committee will be able to utilize is fostering legislation through the Senate using the budget reconciliation process — a procedural tool that will allow, even under current rules, legislation to pass with a simple majority.

    In a tweet on Saturday evening, Sanders himself stated: “When Republicans controlled the Senate they used the reconciliation process to provide huge tax breaks for the rich and large corporations. We’re going to use reconciliation to protect working families, the sick and the poor.”

    We're going to witness how incredibly nasty Lindsey Graham can be, he's already voiced his opinions that democrats will be turning America into a socialist nation. Someone needs to remind him of the large socialist packages republicans gave to the uber-rich, and corporations which really didn't create any jobs more then would normally have been created with or without TAX CUTS. Trickle down has never worked. And never will.
