What Liberals Can Expect if Republicans Retake the Senate
Since many signs point to liberals sitting this year’s election out, allowing Republicans to gain even more power in Congress, it seems that there’s a very real possibility that the GOP will control both the House and Senate starting in January.
And if that happens, liberals only have themselves to blame.
So I thought I’d paint a little picture of a few things we should prepare ourselves to expect if Republicans do take back control of the Senate in January.
The first thing they’ll undoubtedly target is the Affordable Care Act. See, they still won’t be able to repeal “Obamacare,” but they will have more power to sabotage the law. And what better way to make Americans oppose something that’s good for them, than by sabotaging it as much as possible so that Americans will have no choice but to oppose the law. After all, that’s why we have the Affordable Care Act in the first place. It’s really just a watered down version of the real health care law President Obama wanted passed. Many of its flaws are due in large part to the compromises with Republicans that Democrats had to make in order to get the law passed. So get ready for a full-on sabotage of the ACA.
You also might want to buckle your belt and get ready for President Obama’s impeachment. While they won’t be able to convict him in the Senate (which would be necessary to remove him from office), the House can still vote to impeach him, which I fully believe that they will do. See, most Americans oppose impeaching the president so you haven’t seen many mainstream Republicans openly support the idea - even though they actually do. In fact, you’ve seen even the more radical ones who’ve often pushed for Obama’s impeachment suddenly go silent these last couple of months. After all, why risk losing support heading into an election where all signs point to nothing but good news for your party? But I can almost guarantee that not too long after election day the “impeachment talk” will begin to churn once again among Republicans. Only this time, they’ll actually vote to do it.
Also, more deregulation, tax cuts for the rich, complete freeze on the minimum wage and immigration reform, “protection of marriage” legislation and similar legalized discrimination, further erosion of abortion rights, etc. All in all, the slide into third world status, begun during the Reagan administration, will continue to accelerate.
