    There are ninety-eight partisan state legislative chambers in our nation. (Nebraska has a unicameral and nonpartisan legislature.) Not all state legislative chambers had elections this November, but of the seventy-seven state legislative chambers that did have elections, Republicans gained seats in sixty-one, while losing seats in only ten. This translated into shifting control of ten legislative chambers from Democrat to Republican: the State Senate in Washington, Colorado, Nevada, Maine, and New York and the State House of Representatives in New Mexico, Nevada, Minnesota, West Virginia, and New Hampshire. Republican power in state legislatures is at the highest point in a...

    WASHINGTON – Republicans in the House have blocked a bill that would have extended jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed beyond the holiday season. The most recent extension of jobless benefits expires Dec. 1. Two million people will lose benefits averaging $310 a week nationwide by the end of the year.
  • What I expect from the GOP now (vanity post)

    1) Use ALL the power of the Congress to investigate everyone and everything in the administration of the Kenyan Usurper -- starting with a subpoena demanding the birth records of Barry. That should start on DAY ONE! 2) Stop Obamacare. Shut down government if that is what it takes. And not for just a few weeks. We should be prepared for a shut-down of a year or more -- maybe two years. 3) End Social Security as we know it. Privatize it -- aggressively. 4) Fix the 14th Amendment. "Birth right" citizenship should end ASAP. 5) KILL cap and tax...
  • Question: Should the new GOP majority call on Obama to resign? (Not an excerpt, just asking)

    OK... by now it is clear that the Kenyan Usurper is not only the worst president of all time, but one of the most unpopular. The American public -- even those who claim to like Barry a little bit -- have lost confidence in him. This is an intolerable situation that is unprecedented in modern times. Not even Carter saw such a huge, obvious meltdown. It's also pretty clear that the Republicans will seize convincing majorities in both houses of Congress in November. I expect as many as 100 picked-up seats in the House and a re-taking of the Senate....

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, can I just tell you how it's going to be in this election? I get so sick and tired, I have people writing me, "Rush, it's over. Why don't you just realize, it's over? We appreciate you trying to be positive, and we appreciate you trying to buck us up, but come on, Rush, the Republicans don't deserve to be reelected, even without the Foley scandal the Republicans haven't done anything or said anything that's going to make people want to vote for them. So why don't you just open up, why don't you try, Rush,...
  • Getting to Sixty: Taxes in the New Senate

    Getting to Sixty: Taxes in the new Senate. The new Senate will be more definitively Republican than the one that existed for a few months in 2001, and thus on paper Republicans may seem to be in a stronger position than at any time since the early Eisenhower administration (the last time they had this many senators, a House majority, and the presidency). But that doesn't mean it will be easy to enact the Republicans' agenda — even on the items that President Bush campaigned most insistently this fall. Republican candidates were reasonably effective in advocating that Bush's 2001 tax...
