Something doesn’t add up in Bette Midler’s call for voters to be the laxative beneath the Democrats’ wings:
The US has been constipated for 8 years with an obstructionist Congress! Get rid of the blockage! VOTE DEMOCRAT DOWN THE TICKET!!

Well, in fairness, it’s only been six years. Democrats controlled Congress for Obama’s first two years in office and in the 2010 midterms voters apparently decided they’d had enough of that.
@BetteMidler Your math is off. For two years there was a Democrat controlled Congress.

@BetteMidler sorry Bette..six years.
The Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid revolution was in charge until 2010.

Besides, if there’s been “constipation” in government, it hasn’t stopped anybody from spending money:
Latest numbers from @USTreasury shows National Debt has increased over $9-trillion since Pres Obama took office. Increase of 85%.
