“Over 240 days and this Republican Congress has not put forth one jobs plan,” [Cornell] Belcher told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper last month. Democratic operatives defend Belcher’s choice of words, even though Democrats control the Senate.♠
|House of Representatives||192||242||—|
The two Senate Independents are Bernie Sanders (more of a Socialist) and Joe Lieberman (more of a Connecticut Democratic Party Reject). Both caucus with the Democrats.
There is one seat in the House of Representatives that is currently unfilled.
If this is a "Republican Congress", what would it take to make it a Democratic Congress. Was the 111th Congress a Democratic Congress?
|House of Representatives||258||177||—|
Well, the numbers actually vary during the two years of a Congress, but these are the Democratic Party high water marks for the 111th Congress.
Maybe it is only a "Democratic Congress" when it is like the General Court of Massachusetts.
|House of Representatives||128||32|
