It surprises many people how resilient that republican control of the House has been going back to the 2010 elections. It would be less surprising if they knew what happened in that election cycle.
Dave Daley has a new book out about this — and his story is how republican strategist Chris Janksowskipulled off the scam of a lifetime – gerrymandering the Congress.
But hasn’t this been going on for a long time? Yes. But not on this scale. The scary thing is that it will be a long time before this can be reversed.
The larger story here — one of the two major political parties has opted for a strategy to retain power no matter what the marjoity of the voters want.
Thank about it.
