Senator Arlen Specter Switching to Democratic Party

The move brings Democrats to 59 seats in the Senate, just one shy of the 60 they need to exert filibuster proof control over the chamber.

The republican party is basically dead when Franken is certified the winner. The democratic party will be able to force through any agenda they want and no one can stop them.   No resistance…   This new democratic super majority is far more powerful than the the republican majority a few years ago… 

Let’s us all hope that they use this opportunity wisely…   And, they should all thank George and Dick for setting them up so nicely!

So now that they have all this free wielding power and no one can stop them, I must ask why is it that Single Payer is not being  allowed as a consideration in the health-care reform agenda?   –  The Answer!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury

Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Wednesday he would consider forcing out chief executives of banks that receive government bailouts if they were not managing their businesses properly.

In an interview with CBS, Geithner said economic recovery depends on a financial system that effectively provides credit, and the government would hold companies receiving public aid accountable.

When asked whether he left open the option to pressure a bank CEO to resign, Geithner responded, “Of course. Of course.”  (read the entire story)
