Am I the only person who actually feels more rested now that the Midterms are over, and the Blue Wave has washed over the land? Yes, Cheeto is still President. And there’s at least another 2 years of that, but at least his antics will have a check and balance on them through investigations and funding. Here’s hoping the “power of the purse” means no money for anything crazy he comes up with and a deep dig into what he has been funding already.
But this coming January, I know that my Social Security and Medicaid will be safe for at least 2 years. Not only that, but there won’t be any crazy laws passed either.
At this point, a lot of people are saying, “nothing will get passed”. I know. That’s the reason why I voted Democratic in the first place. There are times when a traffic jam is the best solution, and I voted for a 5pm, going out of town before the holiday gridlock. Nothing will get done besides a Federal budget, and nothing is what I want.
What about the lame duck? Well, that ends 12/17, and I doubt that the lame duck wants anything too ambitious. Obama was able to get a lot done during his lame duck, but people actually wanted to work with him. This crowd is probably secretly glad they lost if only because they get the Christmas gift of never having to see Trump or work with him again.
