"So we've got a Republican congress now. Gee, I wonder what would happen if we just gave them a freakin chance?"
Somehow ,in spite of your diatribe , I seem to recall that the Republicans already controlled BOTH house ever since 1994
until Jim Jefford's deciding to renounce the Republicans because "his party left him ".
Well to them that love to say how bad the country was during the Clinton's terms must take pause because most of it was during a "Republican Controlled Congress".
And just as a fr'instance , what Congressional investigations into corporate corruption did the Repub controlled Congress chose to focus theentire nation's attention upon? Whitewater.
Meanwhile there was Enron,Worldcom, Global Crossing, all on top of the Telecom Bubble economy ultimatelywiping out several trillion $ ( yes ,$trillion$) investment capital.
Where was this Republican controlled Congress given this chance to do its due-dilagence on atleast calling attention to this? Sorry , but a Repub controlled congress had its chance and the american investor is several $trillion$ the poorer for the Republican's efforts. Oh but we know more than we ever cared to about Whitewater.
I rest my case.
