"Are we a one issue party?" Apparently yes ...

... and the "issue" is pro-corporate profit at ANY cost.

> Mary votes with Democratic Senate 80 percent?

Suspect the 80:20 rule applies here too - 80 pro votes for political trivia vs 20 con votes for important issues?

(No, I haven't investigated her precise voting record over her career of seat-warming in the Senate so
am not interested in bickering over which few of the real progressive/liberal issues she has actually supported at
one time vs her day-to-day behaviour.)

Nice to see that the jungle drums summoned the usual cheerleaders on this subject too.

Fuck the planet, just maximise personal gain and whinge about people who aren't in lock-step
with the party apparatchiks.
