Democrats Breathe a Sigh of Relief
The real winners in the Massachusetts senate election of Scott Brown were the democrats. Many of them were facing a backlash going into the 2010 elections but now they not only have someone to blame for their failure to pass some of their criminal scams but also can back off for awhile in pressing the agenda. No telling how many dems will keep their seat because of Brown's vote against the health care fraud.
Maybe congress will not feel the need to continue some of the controversial aspects such as cap and trade and immigration 'reform' and hope their constituents will have short memories as to some of the things they pulled in 09. Perhaps laying low will be the dems tactic.
Banking reform is a safer nonpartisan issue that Obama is now attempting, although it's hard to believe anything he's pushing is really in the interests of the people especially when Paul Volcker is one of the architects. Will we even see an 'audit the fed' full congressional vote this year?
As usual the two parties will find common ground on a few things; 'national security,' military funding and war. Few in congress will challenge that.
