Matthews: ‘I think the Senate goes’ | TheHill

It’s a very troubling scenario to have a fully controlled Congress by a handful of rich donors.. changing laws to suit their interests…

MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Thursday predicted Democrats would lose control of the Senate in the midterm elections.

Matthews said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Democrats heard from “the ghost of Christmas future” earlier this week when Democrat Alex Sink lost to Republican David Jolly in a special election for Florida’s 13th congressional district on Tuesday.

“It is going to be very hard to hold the Senate. I think the Senate goes,” he predicted, given the low turnout in midterms
. “I think we heard from the ghost of Christmas future this week, which is they are going to lose the Senate.”

    • I discussed the Senate races with a new friend from Connecticut at the British Institute just now. There’s “Afternoon Tea” every Thursday!

      Anyways – he was more in the “it doesn’t matter both sides are equally corrupt” camp when it comes to politics.

  1. And I beg to differ with your friend…..

    Having a GOP Senate will make things worst…
    No listening at all to the ‘little guy/gal’

    Yea they’re crocked….
    Ask your friend how many people does he know that ain’t ?

    • Yes indeed – thanks for the support! It’s a long term project with him, but.. he’s retired (from work in finance among other things) and recently “escaped” to Italy/Europe – but he’s completely disillusioned about the States. It’s conspiracies everywhere.

      And in general I always strongly resent this “it doesn’t matter” notion – looking at history there are so many huge changes for the better, and that’s important.
