    Since the 1840s, the president's party loses seats in the midterms 93% of the time did you know that. It is almost destiny throughout history and it doesn't really matter what they do or not do. They should do more not because it will help them win the midterms - it won't - but because their time is likely out in the next year.

    All these 'pauses' were just that - temporary. They were never permanent and were going to expire one way or the other eventually.

    The severity is still a constant variable in this scenario. If the Dems don't do more the worse it will be. These variables are piling up to a Red Wave of some kind. I hope I'm wrong, but it doesn't have to be that terrible.

    Well, there's another variable that needs to be considered.....in the past, both parties basically played by the election rules. That has changed and now one party is attempting to set up a mechanism whereby voting results can be overturned.

    They really need to pass voting rights legislation, but Manchin is blocking that using bipartisanship as an excuse.

    It sounds like there "may" be a shift in that, but, it's Manchin, we'll see.
