His idea is so blatantly fair-minded it probably doesn't stand a chance of being accepted.

I would like to see Chuck Schumer take over for the emasculated Harry Reid. Not so much that I agree with all his politics, but he has the cojones to put Mitch McConnell's shriveled up old parts in a vice and squeeze them for as long and hard as it takes to put an end to this nonsense.

Figuratively speaking, of course.

I continue to be impressed with Merkley. Ron Wyden has always been very good.

I've already sent emails to both of them, supporting this notion. I'll also send some to some other influential Senators. If you like the idea... you might consider doing the same.

It makes too much sense, David. It'll never work...
