With the Republicans taking control of the senate I am really wondering what they will do. They have had control of the house, and used that control to spew out bills ad nauseum that had no possibility of becoming law since they were expressly passed to die in the senate. So now are they going to stick to this strategy and spew out an endless stream of bills for Obama to veto? Or are they going to try to get something done? That's question one. My guess is that they will spew out bills for Obama to veto, since the Republican leadership is most likely going to operate from the idea that their behavior in the house has 'worked' as evidenced by this election. If so, that leads to other questions. Will this strategy 'work' in regards to forwarding a Republican victory in the 2016 presidential race? Can the nation really afford two more years of the federal government doing very close to absolutely nothing? Or is very close to absolutely nothing from them actually the best that can happen so we should be glad for the interval we have enjoyed and just hope it continues? If I'm wrong, and the Republican leadership changes course and tries to actually get something done, what might it be? Is there anything this Republican controlled congress can actually find a compromise with Obama on?
