Skip to comments.Here’s What Happens When the GOP Takes Over the Senate (Crying Liberal Alert)
Posted on 04/30/2014 6:02:02 PM PDT by kingattax
From abortion bans to Obamacare cuts to, maybe, an empty Supreme Court chair, the Republicans already know exactly what theyll do if they get control of both houses of Congress.
Passing a federal law banning almost all abortions after 20 weeks. Defunding parts of Obamacare. Weakening the Environmental Protection Agency. Kneecapping the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Elizabeth Warrens baby, the new agency within the Fed to police consumer fraud. Andmaybe, just maybeletting a Supreme Court seat sit vacant until after the next presidential election.
Thats just the start of what happens if the Republicans win back the Senate this November. Imagine, posits a top aide to Mitch McConnell, a steady stream of legislation, much of it conservative, that will force Barack Obama to start vetoing bills for essentially the first time in his presidency.

John Cornyn won’t let that happen.
All good things
How about impeaching Obama and Holder, repealing Obamacare and eliminating the EPA, BLM and IRS?
History has already shown us what will happen, they will roll over on their backs like a submissive dog.
Don’t forget the Education Dept.!!!!!!!
If the GOPE takes over the senate, they will do nothing but collect their pay, play golf, make speeches and attend fundraisers.
And Ditch Mitch will be at his side...
If Republicans take over the Senate, I bet the first thing that gets passed is the most comprehensive immigration bill ever imagined.
My dog LOVES rubby tummies; Too bad the GOPe Senate leaders don’t feel the same way...
.....and then hump Obama’s leg.
LOL, U R BAD!
Don’t forget praise their friends on the other side of the aisle.
Michael Tomasky (born 1960) is a liberal American columnist, journalist and author. He is the editor in chief of Democracy, a special correspondent for Newsweek / The Daily Beast, a contributing editor for The American Prospect, and a contributor to The New York Review of Books.
Well, it’s true! :)
The Republicans didn’t do that when they had all three branches of government. What makes anyone think they would start now with a more liberal Senate?
Boy, I bet he got a lot of dates in HS. /s. (Which, ultimately, folks, is the mentality we’re dealing with.)
Looks like he’d lick a snake.
Daily Beast’s Tomasky: ‘Democrat’ Racism is a ‘Fantasy;’ Minimizes Sharpton, Reid’s Remark
“This is something conservatives don’t understand. Or rather, they understand itbut they can’t acknowledge it. They can’t acknowledge this larger context of Democratic support for the things that have mostly improved black people’s lives and Republicans’ almost total opposition to them since at least the 1980s....”
While Tomasky cited Biden, Reid, and Clinton, the Daily Beast columnist brushed them aside as not “real, seriously racist.”
What changes when the GOP takes over? Nothing, absolutely nothing that the D’s wouldn’t do.
Let’s not forget getting rid of the mid and upper level libtard judges. We don’t have to impeach them, just eliminate their seats. Make new ones when we feel like it. This also applies to the supremes.
They may do a few of those things but my guess is is that they will generally sell out.
I hoping at least 95% of all government agencies get their SWAT teams taken away. Especially their “snipers” and armed drones.
Someone more clever and a better writer than I am (and their number is legion :) should take that second paragraph and turn it around mentioning the liberty destroying stuff done by the RATS in the last several years.
Neither party is innocent. Not even close.
Too many spineless crybabies in the GOP for any of this to happen.
Just think Michael. I have a long list. You haven’t gotten past the first page.
I certainly hope some or all of these happy outcomes come to pass.
Oh the leadership has already been doing that for the last five years. We need to get rid of toy poodles and get a few PitBulls!
He looks like he’s been punched in the nose a lot.
If so, small wonder.
mccain would sabotage anything conservative, as well as bitch mcconnell and senator ‘hello kitty’ lindsey grahamnesty.
Remember all the great things they did to restore the Republic when they held all three branches?
No, neither do I.
The last time the GOP controlled the Senate, our federal budget deficit was $160 billion and falling, unemployment was at 4.6 %, a gallon of gasoline cost $2.18, and our total national debt was less than half what it is today.
very good post...thanks
Looks like hed lick a (trouser) snake.
They will give Prince Harry back his fillibuster.
If the Stupid Party takes over they will just kneel to their Democrat masters and do their bidding.
A few will stand and fight but for the most part the GOP will collapse.
This is typical liberal hysteria and fearmongering to scare Democrats into staying on the plantation, ignoring their "culture of corruption that rises to the top ranks of the party", the lie that was Pelosi's "Most Ethical Congress Ever", etc.
Stalinists lie. ALWAYS
The Daily Beast == Newsweak.
Democrat propaganda for the masses.
Kindly have a fatal, bloody car crash, in which you are pinned in the wreckage for hours and slowly bleed out.Love,
Dittos on this prediction. I actually predict the establishment will pander even more to obama and the democrats. They are totally devoid of principal and a spine and are not fit to run a brothel.
