    My predictions are: there will be no hope or change. Just impeachment proceedings, but I hope I'm wrong and that the GOP will try to work on issues.

    There will be no impeachment proceedings unless the President goes completely off the rails with immigration, and even then, they'll likely go to the courts...

    They will likely change proportionately to the 20/535 change in congress critter personnel that we will soon experience.

    Does one expect a vast difference in service due to personnel rotation at a given McDonald's?

    You would really have to see the Republican leadership do a 180 to even consider that. I'm sorry, but this is paranoid fantasy.

    To a lot of people--no. To those who accept what limited changes are brought by a more unified Congress, this is consequential.

    A view of working people from the right, everyone but the truly wealthy are beasts of burden who will become lazy if they arenít prodded. If they canít work, donít feed them. If the missing pieces separating them from the ability to survive with what they already have are a coverage guarantee and a premium tax credit, it should be denied to them. If theyíve outlived their use, put them out to pasture. I still can't figure out for the life of me why the rural poor in red states continue to vote for the GOP.

    making crazy Joe the vice president was one of Obama's smarter moves. even we who detest Obama's incompetence and his failures don't want Biden as president. He's as worthless as Obama with about half the brains

    Most everyone is a product of their own effort and abilities (inheritances are the exception). That's just the way it is...

    I think there will be more to it than that.

    that reads like some crap out of the IWW handbook. I cannot understand why any man who takes responsibility for himself would vote for the Dems. I guess if people want to be perpetual children-or worse yet, want to run the lives of others, they vote Dem
