Gotta Love how the Democrats really feel about the voters:Joe Biden: Democratic base should ‘stop whining’ MANCHESTER, N.H. — Campaigning for Democratic candidates in New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden said Monday the party’s base should “stop whining.”

The MA. House ended their Formal Session in JULY…according to today’s Beacon Hill Roll Call During the week of Sept. 20-24, the House met for a total of one hour and 44 minutes .
Yet today according to the breaking News in the Sun: Massachusetts House Republicans have blocked Democrats plans to pass a $400 million spending bill.…Ok they ended the session on JULY 31st yet they want an informal session with no roll call and not a full House to pass a bill SPENDING 400 MILLION OF OUR TAX DOLLARS!
The House Leaders need to get on the same page, Legislative rules prohibit formal sessions after July 31 in an election year, a provision intended to prevent campaign season chicanery or lame-duck sessions.
They could reconvene but a majority of members in the House and Senate would have to opt to suspend the rules and meet in a special session, but each item on the agenda would require a two-thirds vote of support to come to the floor, a level that could prove insurmountable for some bills.
