Winning Senate Matters For Various Reasons

Lawrence O'Donnell was perhaps right last night to say the key point in winning the Senate are confirmations, but didn't do enough to push back against the "won't matter much" crowd.

A Republican Congress will push things right, including in key budget matters often largely out of the public view.
