    Even if the republicans are successful in replacing their current crop in Congress with more conservative politicians, it won't help them, or us.  If obstructionism is up now, it'll be a lot greater if this happens, and none of them now or in the near future seem to have viable solutions to the problems we are facing.  If they were to win the majority and implemented more tax cuts, back into the rabbit hole of recession we'll go, and the sad thing is that they'd blame it on President Obama and progressives. IMHO, these folks are the worst politicians in the world because they have a disconnect between their ideology, and the way things work in the real world. Congressman Ryan plans to introduce a bill into the House to cut Social Security and medicare spending. Neither he nor any of the other republicans have asked themselves, what happens to the millions of senior citizens who depend on these programs just to survive?  I can see that if the republicans cut these and other entitlement programs, we'll have millions more homeless people, and many of them will be the elderly.  Steve Benen had a post on this yesterday.
