Fox News “liberal Democrat” Dennis Kucinich could have (and should have) taken a lesson from Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) today when he appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the Benghazi controversy before Kucinich did. Unlike Kucinich, Smith was able to both raise questions that still need to be answered about Benghazi and defend against the partisan witch hunt that Republicans have turned Benghazi into – with Fox News’ enthusiastic participation.

“Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren introduced legislation this week that would increase federal student loan subsidies by lowering interest rates for a year and funding them through the Federal Reserve.
The bill is called the Bank on Student Loans Fairness Act, and represents Warren’s solution to the student debt crisis. It would set interest rates for federally-subsidized student loans at 0.75 percent for one year.
The current interest rate is 3.4 percent, but will double on July 1st unless Congress intervenes.” [QUOTE]

It passed by a 62-37 margin, with 17 Democrats joining Republicans in supporting the measure.

What dark motives are at play?
This is why I’m so angry with Harry Reid and the Dinosaur Democrats in the Senate who are too timid to do a fucking thing to reform the way they do things in the upper chamber.
The GOP has learned over and over again, going all the way back to fucking Watergate though Iran Contra to stealing the 2000 election to torture to the endless fucking list of abuses of power by the Bush/Cheney administration that they can do literally any goddamn thing they want, and there will never, ever, be any consequences for it (except maybe a primary challenge from an even crazier right wing lunatic because they weren’t crazy enough.)
