The only reason the GOP did not take down Mark Warner was because of the votes it lost in Virginia to the Libertarians. The right will have to pick and choose how to spend its money--capturing the WH, holding onto the Senate or holding onto the House. Without an incumbent, people will not be protesting voting the POTUS like was seen in this midterm.
    Its still a new house in that it has many more republicans. The TEA party isn't going away, it would be unwise for the left to ignore them.

A liberal will never say we need to put America to work so that prosperity can be shared by every class.

    Under Obama the rich have gotten richer and the middle class has less. Now I'm a market guy and love the gains I've received under Obama, but the fact is under his liberal polices the middle class have been left behind with less than they had before him. That is a fact.
    ???

    I'm not a liberal and I don't support minimum wage or welfare. I'm a voluntaryist that supports free markets and voluntary exchange.

    The Tea Party does not take votes away from the democrats. They can ignore them until the cows come home.

    Raising the minimum wage has nothing to do with the middle class. The middle class doesn't work for minimum wage.

    Those who work a second job or the second-income earner in the same household might very well be working for minimum wage or the range in which their wages would go up depending on the amount of increase.

    The left has been wrong about them before. If they want the democrat party to continue on, they'd be wise not to ignore anything.

    I don't want either party to continue on, but the Tea Party is the best gift the conservatives have given to democrats in a generation.

    I do enjoy a good horror movie once in awhile. Listening to the Tea Party reminds me that there really is true evil on this planet.
