No concern trolling, folks.

It has to be asked: What happens in the aftermath of November's election if the GOP controls the House and Senate?

#KickingAssPuncast at 11 am ET/8 am PT lays out the consequences: when you do not vote, Republicans win.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    to use his veto. Something he has not needed to do, given that for the past 4 years Congress has stopped producing legislation, objectionable or not. I think he would be willing to veto many things.

    And the real danger is the budgets that might be produced in conference between the House and Senate. Under current rules, budgetary matters do not require a supermajority in the Senate, only 51 votes. And Obama might find it very hard to veto a spending plan if the alternative were shutting down the government.

    It's only a temporary problem though, cuz the 2016 Senate election is looking pretty darn good for Democrats.

    You will not be punished for your anger. You will be punished by your anger.

    •  Cant the Senate Democrats do what The GOP is (0+ / 0-)

      doing now. Alos, most polls say the Demos will take it back in 2016.

      a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.
