"Democratic." Wingnuts say "Democrat" rather than "Democratic." Do you want to be mistaken for a wingnut?
Why? Insanity usually comes from the delusional Republicans. Wingnuts, with inverted worldviews from Republican propaganda, imagine that the Democrats are the party that's out of touch. Again, you risk being mistaken for a wingnut.
Btw, it's spelled "vein."[/quotemsg]
Republicans are a different type of stupid. Democrats, and I do use that as an insult tend to be for over regulation and unnecessary restrictions. They tend to make legislation on things they typically know little about, bring in experts they don't listen to, and implement overbearing rules that make the problem worse. Take for instance licensing which is a roadblock for people intending to get into an industry while not providing any added protection for the consumer.
Like I said, I can't say how this will be stupid until they make legislation on it. From the only proposal in the article, they are moving in a positive direction. Makes sense considering its the Virgina Senator proposing it instead of an institutionalized one like Chuck Schumer.
