I expect them to be an even stronger "Party Of No", but I don't expect them to actually accomplish anything meaningful.

Lets hope so.
Obama needs to be kneecapped until he can be removed next election cycle.

They will take credit for the nation's recovery and claim it as their own.

If Republicans send a bill to the President and he says no, how does that make the Republicans the "party of no?"

Realistically, it will probably deadlock things. But if it deadlocks Obama's "the government must take over everything" agenda, then I'll be happy. Can't say I really want the Republican agenda to succeed. Neither party will do what is good for the country.

If Republicans take control of Congress in November, what do you expect them to do?

If Republicans take control of Congress in November then I'd expect them to be arrested. If they wait until January then I expect them to reduce government agencies by at least 20%, pass a balanced budget amendment, establish term limits, return all U.S. forces to the 57 states, with the Navy housed in the Gulf of Mexico... aimed at Mexico. And anything else I can think of between now and then.

And outlaw botox.

I expect them to provide good paying jobs to everyone, have the housing market rebound. the stock market soar, cut their salaries, eliminate all the waste in government (including the military) , end the war, provide excellent care to every maimed soldier returning, make sure every returning soldier has a job, have the Gulf cleaned of all oil, provide enough inspectors and strict regulations to keep us safe from the oil companies/food companies/drug companies, improve infrastructure, provide good health care to everyone so we have a stronger healthier nation, and raise grades in every school in the country......without growing government or raising taxes......and they have three months.


In other words , I expect from them what repugs wanted from Obama...

I EXPECT them to do what the public has been screaming for and that is to put a halt to Obamacare. They don't have the votes to override a veto, but they can DEFUND it and make it a worthless pile of paper.

I expect them to start issuing supoenas to haul in the Obama regime and issue charges against him and his minions who have been circumventing the law to advance their policies.

I would expect them to do what they have always done, represent the interests of 2% or 3% of the population.
