The beauty of our governing system of checks and balances is that presidential overreach can be curtailed by Congress. To borrow the Obama's own analogy, the voters decided to ditch his drive to take the country on the road to the farthest reaches of the left's progressively ideological hopes and dreams. They instead elected legislators who represent the more reasonable values of mainstream Americans, who reside on the center-right side of the highway. We can therefore expect that over the last two years of what is expected to be Obama's only term in office, Republicans will keep Obama in check, making the passage of any further ideologically driven domestic "spread the wealth" legislation highly unlikely.

The Democrats only have themselves to blame.

Oh wait they will continue blaming everything on the Republicans.

Over the past 70 years the Democrats have controlled the Congress. Soi how is everything the Republican's fault.

That is like Barry Soetoto AKA Barack Obama calling the Republicans the Party of NO when the Democrats had a Super Majority in both houses of the Congress.

The Democrats could have passed anything they wanted to and there was no one to stop them. Except for their fellow Democrats.

Looks like the wage earning taxpayers are finally outnumbered by the losers on the public dole in Taxachusetts. The takers are outnumbering those who support them.
