Hoist a Baccarat cut crystal tumbler of 24-year-old BenRiach scotch whiskey ( distilled during the Reagan years) and toast the return of Republican power.
Despite being voted in bigly by the “little guys,” corporate powers and the wealthy elite are already licking their lips in anticipation of tax cuts for major corporations.
Let the unequal distribution of wealth and income continue.
Republicans Call the Shots
Back in power after decades, the majority Republicans can now call the shots.
Taking direct aim at the Democrats, the GOP hit a bull’s-eye, winning control of the White House, the senate, the house, supreme court picks and more state legislative chambers and more governors offices than they have held in nearly a century.
Long on Power
With the appointment of a new conservative Court Justice, Republican’s will control all three branches of government.
In a race where winner takes all – it’s easy to see who the real losers will be.
Locked and loaded, the GOP is gunning for Obamacare. You can also bet they’ll go off half cocked about abortion, same-sex marriage, gun control, immigration reform, block much-needed increases in minimum wage, repeal Dodd Frank Regulations and create cuts in middle class tax deductions for pensions and IRA’s. And speaking of cuts, they have their eyes on dismantling LBJ’s legacy too with Medicaid and Medicare clearly in their sights.
For the poor and hard-working, beleaguered middle class, winner really does take all – all hope of progress.
