    Democrats hang on to their crucial Senate majority.
    Vox (Left) • Factual Grade 75% • 4 min read

    With Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto’s win in Nevada, Democrats now hold 50 seats. That means at the least, the balance of power will remain the same as it is now, with Vice President Harris serving as a tie-breaker. Should the party prevail in Georgia, they’ll have a net gain of one seat. Republicans appear poised to retake the House, [which] would set up a split Congress, and likely see standoffs over must-pass bills like funding the government.
    ...
    Democrats’ Senate majority preserves the party’s ability to continue confirming judges and executive nominees. Keeping the Senate majority also means that Democrats would still set their own floor agenda and be able to reject bills approved by a GOP-led House.
    ...
    Democrats will have more leverage on issues like government funding, for example, since the Senate will be able to craft its own version of these bills. Plus, upper-chamber leaders could ensure that hearings and committee time aren’t used on investigations of Biden and other members of his administration, a key prerogative of a Republican-controlled House.

Should psychiatrists prescribe meditation before resorting to antidepressants?

337 votes, 49 comments

Context: Study finds meditation course has similar effectiveness as antidepressant in reducing anxiety.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

Yes - We're far too "drug happy" in our country and people want an easy button for everything. Depression is a chemical imbalance due to a state of mind. Medications such as SSRIs try to manipulate your body to fix the imbalance, meditation and changing the state of mind actually fixes the root cause.


Unsure - This is a "depends on the patient" situation. Forty-five minutes of meditation homework is a lot and for many people this is not a realistic expectation. Given the side ...



No - It's wrong to frame this as an either/or. I've been on treatment for depression for over a decade, and therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes e...
