There is no "one way" to take back our government, nor will liberals ever unite behind a single goal.  What must happen though is a sustained loud noise without wavering. Everyone has one or more parts in making this happen from citizen/non-citizen to your 3 members of Congress.

In this Re-Grand Opening, the focus is on what the Senate can do.  They know they can do something but history tells us when push comes to shove, Democrats too often chose to be pushed.  No more!

This episode is dedicated to an Op-Ed piece "A Game Plan for Senate Democrats" by Sarah Binder, a professor of political science at George Washington University and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. It appeared in the 2/10/17 New York Times

Angry mobs are showing up at Republican Town Hall meetings. They are not all Republicans. The anger that brought crowds to Democratic Town Halls in 2010 over being forced into healthcare is now manifested by Democrats, Independents and even some Republicans at the prospect of losing what they've gained.

The fundamental difference between liberal and conservative healthcare plans is this:

- Republicans want you to have just enough insurance to keep you from going bankrupt but not have access to all the care you need.

- Democrats want you to have all the healthcare you need and see it as a right.

It's another brainer which is the better way.
