Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the Senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the D.C. court with left-wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government.

Now the super wealthy are after workers’ pensions and safety nets for their families. No affordable health care, no overtime, shorter hours, lower pay, no vacations, work on holidays without extra pay, etc.
