The last Republican majority in the House and Senate was during the Bush administration. They were better known for pork barrel earmarks than governing.
What the people carrying “Resist” signs really don’t like are the Deplorables who voted for Trump.
An October Huffington Post headline read “Trump’s Refusal to Accept Election Results has Americans fuming.” And Hillary called Trump a “threat to Democracy” for refusing to say in advance he’d accept the results of the election.
But Trump won and now the shoe’s on the other foot. A Reason headline about protesters at Berkley says, “Thugs indulge their Weimar Dreams and Become the Totalitarians They Claim to Hate.”
When President Obama met with party leaders in 2009 Eric Cantor pitched some ideas for the stimulus bill. The president responded, “Elections have consequences and, at the end of the day, I won.” The 800 billion dollar stimulus went on to pass with three Republican votes. And ObamaCare rammed its way through Congress without any Republican support. At the time Democrats controlled the White House, Senate, and House.
The program has never been popular with voters. A new Rasmussen survey finds that only 12% of voters want to keep it as it is. However 56% want the law improved piece by piece. Only 30% want to see the program immediately brought to room temperature.

Joe Scarborough dinged the media for freaking out over Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the election. But after spending the week saying the election is rigged what else would you expect him say?
Trump later joked that he’ll definitely accept the rigged election results if he wins:
“I will accept a clear election result,” Trump allowed. “But I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result.” He cited the landmark 2000 Supreme Court case Bush v. Gore as precedent for needing to contest an election.
Here’s to hanging chads.
