GOP Controlling Congress

The Republicans now control Congress. They have more seats in the House than they’ve had since the 1940’s, and also have the majority in the Senate, (for the first time since 2006) gaining seven seats, giving them 52 seats over the Democrats 46. 

People are already speculating just how the GOP will “flex its muscles” between now and the end of the calendar year.

According to President Obama, the midterm election season is a time for “reflection,” and that he takes the blame for the low voter turn out. He vows to move on immigration by the end of the year, taking any action possible.

Although it may seem as sweeping change is immanent, keep in mind, over the last 20 years, 13 1/2 of them have been spent with Congress controlled by one party, and the President leading from the other.

Come 2015, we shall see what changes with a Republican controlled Congress.
