They're scared to death Silver's prediction is going to dry up funding.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Interestingly enough, the Democrats liked Nate Silver very much when he predicted that Barack Obama would defeat Mitt Romney in 2012.  Nowadays, well, not so much.

As for the Koch brothers, many Democrats demonize them, as if there were some neutral principle at stake here: Why, it just seems, well, morally unhygienic to allow large sums of private cash to corrupt public campaigns.
 
Oddly enough, however, these same Democrats seldom (if ever) complain when, say, the billionaire, Tim Steyer, pledges $50 million of his own money to Democratic candidates who toe the environmentalist line.

Or when George Soros spends lavishly upon Democratic candidates, either...

Not only that, but Steyer clearly bought influence from Reid because Reid promptly turned the Senate floor into a bully pulpit for Steyer's message - the one he said he was going to be funding with $50m direct and $50m in contributions.  Apparently it's just hunky-dory when democrats/liberals/progressives blatantly buy influence in Congress.

"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security
