After the Republican victory in this mid-term election, taking control of the Senate and increasing their majority in the House, what do you personally expect to see happen when they take control in January?

I think we will finally begin to see legislation start to move forward, I think we may get some form of immigration reform brought to the president and the public and I think we will see where "WE" as a nation are headed. I also think that we may be in for some nasty "fights" between the Legislative and Executive branches over policy both foreign and domestic.

Interested to see what my fellow RPers think/feel about the shape of things to come.

Honestly, I would like the GOP, to give the military a higher pay raise for what they do for America. 1% pay raise is ok, but inflation is ever more increasing.

SFC William Swartz Jr, I agree with you. I'm hoping the Congress gets some things done. And I hope both they and the President are willing to compromise to move our country forward.

With Reid no longer going to be Senate Majority Leader maybe just maybe some of the 300+ bills the house passed will be voted on by the Senate. It is a shame that one can be so small as to just sit on bills passed by one house just because it is controlled by a different party.

So I'm guessing you're willing to call Boehner small, as well, since he did the exact same thing?

I hope they (congress) neutralizes what Obama wants to do in the next two years. I am Latino, and Did not Vote for this Moron either time. I was in During Carter, and this guy makes Carter look like Einstein. This country has lost alot of respect around the world, this economy should be booming but with a socialist minded leader we are where we are, hopefully That will Change. I believe a deal was made with the Mexican Government to release The Marine, you will see amnesty for all very soon. God Bless All!

PO3 JoseLuis Breton thank you for your service brother and I agree with your sentiments about his socialist lean as well as where our economy should; I pray you are wrong about the amnesty, but I wouldn't put it past him unfortunately.....
