Voters to decide in pivotal congressional, gubernatorial races Tuesday

Washington (CNN) – The most expensive midterm elections in history finally take place Tuesday as voters decide who goes to Congress and governors' offices.

With all predictions, the election is considered a referendum on both the Democratic-controlled Congress and President Barack Obama's first two years in office.

Polls indicate a dissatisfied electorate could clean house - literally - by tossing out the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives and possibly doing the same in the Senate.

    When Democrats try to talk about their view of the 'stimulus' bill and ObamaCare as good things they have 'accomplished', they need to consider this question: Would those bills pass today?!? Not a chance and not even close. The Democratic congressmen and women have been duped by their leaders and the Obama Administration. Today they pay for that.

    The republicans and Bush almost created another great depression, and voters appear to want them to finish the job.

    The voters are to reward the repugs for two years of the most dispicable behavior the country has ever seen.

    How stupid is the American public?

    Why do we reward people that campaign but do ZERO work – I`m talking about those people collecting Senatorial and Congressional WELFARE !

    Mitch McConnel has be caimpaigning against the President since 21 days after he was inagurated.

    And what about John McCain?? 1st he spent 2 or 3 years running for President and now he`s spent 2 years running for Senate. This cat is way too old for productive work RETIRE ALREADY instead of milking the government payroll.
