If it's on the books and not overturned by the Courts it will survive to be an albatross around the Country's neck. It is not comprable to defunding overseas Military involvements. Once troops come home that's it - but domestic stuff even if seldom used. misused , sidelined or forgotten can always be revived if the winds change a bit.
Kindly remember one thing in light of some substantial gains on November 2nd by Conservatives. Those making the difference are not idealogues, not deeply committed, not too well informed, not chronological, or consistent. They can shift back in 2 years , 4 years, 6 years and odds are the GOP even with the TP New Blood will not fully come thru even if they had a Veto proof majority.
Mr.Newt if Honest probably would agree.
It won't last though. Once the even-more-incompetent-than-what-we-have-now Congress gets seated and they recognize that nothing will change, we'll just settle back into politics as usual.
