Washington (CNN) – One wish of many Republicans and conservative voters seems certain to come true in the aftermath of the midterm congressional elections - there won't be any more sweeping reform legislation like the 2,000-plus page health care bill for a while.
President Barack Obama has conceded as much since Democrats lost majority control of the House and had their Senate majority narrowed this week, telling reporters that a piecemeal approach to major issues is the best way forward.
The Republicans wiil have eightteen months, like the President and Dems had before we as americans kick them out for this time
This is why the Dems had to focus on the monumental tasks first. It was a good move because conseratives do not want to see anything change. This is why they are a dying breed – just look at who showed up at the rallys for the unintelligent - older folks. The youthful Dems will resurrect this country's ambitious roots.
The only way for us to survive is to move forward – not standing still or moving backwards.
Thank you midwestern peope you just killed 2 years of potential progress. Burn your social security and medicaid cards now b/c I am not paying for you anymore.
No more reform...just gridlock and lame attempts to allow insurance companies to go back to yanking coverage for people who get sick. Oh, and let's not forget the hateful legislation that would make it acceptable and legal to discriminate against some groups of Americans.
That was the whole point of the election.......you know?
Both cap-and-trade and Obamacare were absurd projects.
Basically America needs to recover from wealth-spreading schemes.
Now the GOP can breathe easier and return to their platform of tax cuts for the rich, increased defense spending for needless wars and deregulation so that their big business buddies can steal all that they can and then have the middle class pay for it. When is this country going to learn that the GOP is the enemy of the American people?
