This is why Democrats have to quit being the laissez faire morons they have been for the majority of my long lifespan. "Oh, well we got a majority in both houses plus the presidency for two years and the entire world didn't get turned on it's head, why should I bother turning out for a midterm election? I'll just let the GOP grind the government to a complete halt so that everything gets worse instead of better." "Oh, well I didn't get the candidate that I want so I'll just stay home...then when a ******* lunatic is in the white house appointing conservatives to the supreme court instead of acknowledging any responsibility for that I'll demand that in order to be elected any Democrat has to promise to rewrite the government to mitigate the damage I have done." On and on and on and on. The system worked mostly okay for two hundred years. The fact that it stopped working isn't because "it just broke down and now we have to fix it." Try growing the fudge up and actually USING it instead of crying about how the people who do use it use it against you, Democrats.
