Déjà vu

-Laurence Vance
After Bill Clinton had been in office for two years, the Republicans gained control of both the House and the Senate. This was the revolution that wasn’t. Then they spent the next six years making excuses for their actions while complaining that they needed a Republican president so they could really do something. Then they got one: George W. Bush in 2000. And we know what happened then. The Republicans went on a spending spree, passed their own version of health care reform, and started two wars. Now that Republicans have gained control of the Senate and retained control of the House, all we will hear for the next two years is excuses for their actions while they complain that they need a Republican president so they can really do something. God help us if Republicans hold on to the Congress and we get another Republican president in 2016.
