We WILL be looking at the party in power to abandon the
politics of "no", simply opposing the Democratic president, as
the mantle of responsibility now rests squarely on them. OK,
Republicans, you have the ball. What are you planning to DO
In Illinois, Governor-Elect Rauner has vowed to "Shake up
Springfield", whatever THAT means...is that a prescription
for problem-solving here? In DC, now that Mitch McConnell
leads the Senate, will he actually do his job, stop simply blocking
the president? Soooo many questions, so few good answers.
The middle class and the poor are the real losers here; even
though they are the majority numerically, Tuesday's Republican
Rise is very bad news for them. Did voters decide to hitch their
wagons to a star, figuring the conservative rich really have the
answers to their problems and the country's woes? I think not:
I see more bone-headed decisions like Citizens United in our
future. The "greater good" is not a radical conservative mantra;
"More for me and mine" IS.
The Republicans have a slim two years to prove they are
able, willing to work for all of us, rather than their friends
in the 1%. I don't see this happy outcome, however...
but we will be watching--now it's about accountability,
