With GOP poised to take the House, things are looking up for the nation


Early election outcomes Tuesday weren’t the romp Republicans had hoped for, however they clearly appeared nonetheless on monitor to take the Home and finish one-party rule in Washington.

Republicans had been projected to seize a lot of the hottest races, together with in Florida, Texas, and Kentucky. They wanted to select up simply six seats to win management of the chamber and appeared set to wind up with much more.

For anybody anxious about government-spending-fueled inflation, it’s nice information; it means President Joe Biden and his drunken-sailor fellow Democrats gained’t have the ability to push by extra of their ginormous, reckless outlays.

Individuals appear to grasp that Dems’ sky’s-the-limit spending — their $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, $485 billion (misnamed) Inflation Discount Act, and $1.2 trillion infrastructure invoice — had triggered sufficient financial harm. It needed to cease, and solely Republicans had been all for turning off the spigot.

“The very first thing you’ll see is a invoice to manage the border,” Home Minority Republican Chief Kevin McCarthy mentioned.

Certainly, in exit polls Tuesday by CBS, CNN, and the Related Press, extra voters ranked inflation as their prime fear than another subject. Equally telling, greater than 70% of voters described themselves as “indignant or “dissatisfied” with the route of the nation, per CBS and CNN.



Republican management of the Home will block different harmful Democratic plans, too, like their bids to successfully federalize voting guidelines or pack the Supreme Court docket. As a substitute, GOPers will look to regain management of the southern border — and probe Biden’s outrageous (and unlawful) insurance policies there, which have triggered nightmares for the nation.

“The very first thing you’ll see is a invoice to manage the border,” Home Republican Chief Kevin McCarthy vowed. Hear, hear.

He’s additionally planning laws aimed toward curbing inflation and reining in crime. And he’ll seemingly launch a badly wanted probe into the president’s involvement in his son’s shady abroad enterprise — and the FBI and the Justice Division’s seemingly nonexistent inquiries into the matter.  

In the meantime, New York’s personal Rep. Hakeem Jeffries is an efficient wager to comply with Nancy Pelosi as Home Democratic chief. He’d be the primary black particular person to carry the submit and is well-suited to look out for New York’s pursuits.

In fact, Biden sitting within the White Home means Republicans gained’t be passing a lot of their agenda. However once more, neither will Democrats. And gridlock will probably be an enormous enchancment from the established order.
