Now that the Democrats appear to control both the House and the Senate (as well as a majority of state governments), I expect that we will see a much more fiscally responsible federal budget in the future. The explosion in pork given to us by Republicans will disappear under Democrats as the two parties now have to come to an agreement on legislation. Americans voted for checks and balances yesterday.
However, I am certain that several years from now conservatives will forget the previous six years and attribute the fiscal responsibility of the Democratic Congress to Bush controlling “tax-and-spend” Democrats.
What I am most excited about is the opportunity that Congress will actually investigate and expose the corruption and incompetence of the Bush administration. The Republicans refused to do their jobs, but Democrats will relish in it.
