Pissed off. Why? Democrats lost the House. Democrats lost seats in the Senate. Obama tried to work with the Republicans and got nowhere, and kept trying when it was obvious he was being strung along. What are the Dems going to do with this drubbing? Turtle up. Work together and come out with and stick with a consistent message they the defend strongly? No. Turtle up. They have to the end of this year to show me wrong here.
The people of this country and this state piss me off. We passed amendments to make fees require 2/3 vote in the legislature. Now local counties and cities are really going to deteriorate. This may be worse than Prop-13. The proposition to place an $18 State Park fee on vehicle registration in return for free access failed. This made total sense! Are you asleep? Oh, it was a back door tax! Ooohhh! More taxes! "Hidden Taxes!" What better way to keep our state parks in great shape, making California a great place to visit, bringing in millions if not billions in economic stimulus, benefiting even those who never set foot in a state park. But no. Our infrastructure is going to fall apart because of Prop 26 and on top of that so will our state parks. This place is going to look real nasty with parks no one wants to visit, crap roads, no services. Business won't stick around if it becomes impossible to do business and employees don't want to live here.
The Republicans are going to try to change the health care reform act. I think they are going to find that harder to do than simply "repealing Obamacare." I'm pissed off. The fools who voted these morons into office are going to hear from me. This directly hits my wallet and my family and repeal isn't going to happen quietly.
Obama, what you do with the remains of this congress determines if I support you in 2012. Don't fuck it up.
