Republicans Gain Full Control Of The House And Senate For First Time In 8 Years


Obama-covers-NYPost-550x616

The GOP has officially gained control of both the House and the Senate following the results of Tuesday’s mid-term elections.

A Republican tide ripped the Senate away from Democrats Tuesday, giving the GOP full control of Congress and the power to pin down President Barack Obama during his last two years in office.

The thumping win upends the balance of power between the White House and Capitol Hill only six years after Obama’s Democrats swept to power and marginalized Republicans in a rush to reform health care, Wall Street and pass a huge stimulus package.

Now, it’s Democrats who will take the back seat on Capitol Hill, relying mostly on the power of the filibuster to stymie Republicans and keep Obama’s legacy intact.

House Speaker John Boehner, celebrating a widened majority, said this:

“I am humbled by the responsibility the American people have placed with us.”

“But this is not a time for celebration,” he said. “It’s time for government to start getting results and implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country, starting with our still-struggling economy.”

Sounds like this is going to be an interesting and long two years.

  7. People are too lazy to do their research and vote. I’ve been researching props and candidates for months and went to vote Tuesday night after working a 12hr shift. This mess burns me. I don’t really care who or what you vote for as long as you are making an INFORMED DECISION.

      Cause certain people are just ignorant and this election was not about getting the change that was needed but us against them and sticking it to Obama his last 2 years. Thats why when half these rednecks, trailer park folks, and all the ignorant folks start talking about how unfair things are, I’ll laugh and remind them that they put them in power. Plain n simple.
