When Democrat Sherman Tribbitt went from Lt. Governor to Governor I asked him how it felt being on the other side of the desk as Chief of State. He replied, “It’s a lot easier on the other side, you can second guess, but being in the big chair the buck does stop here.”
Republicans in Congress have had 6 years in Washington blaming the problems of the country on President Obama saying they have a better plan for the course of America.
Some legislation we won’t see will be raising the minimum wage; they may not like Obamacare and their first piece of legislation will be to strike it, and the first order of business for the President will be to veto it.
It will be interesting to see what the Republicans will present as their health care proposal. I hope they have a better plan.
Unions will feel the heat, a push for less environmental laws for corporations and less regulations will be pushed on their agenda. Education will be ignored, which may not be a bad idea, we have had enough programs that don’t amount to squat. Rights for women; forget it.
I wish the Republican agenda the best, really, but I’m not holding my breath they will introduce much of the legislation they have been critical of. I am anxious to see what they have in mind for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. When these issues reach their constituents and they start screaming; we’ll see.
They have two years to prepare their agenda for the Presidential race in 2016. If they fail, the wave we saw drown the Democrats yesterday, will do the same for the Republicans.
