Yep. FoxNews says the dems have an 83% chance of taking the House, while the repubs have a 69% chance of keeping the Senate.

6 years after Sam Brownback tried his trickle down tax cuts experiment in Kansas, a Democratic candidate is now expected to take over.

Although I am obviously disappointed in the repubs losing the House, I'm a bit confused as to how much it will affect the Trump agenda. Just controlling the House means very little, since the repubs still have the Senate. And anything the House passes could be vetoed by Trump.

As I understand it, if the House wants to impeach Trump, it would still take 2/3 of the Senate to approve it, and that's not going to happen.

It just seems that there will be more gridlock, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. (The less Congress does, the better.) Honestly, Trump has been unable to pass a lot of his agenda through Congress, anyway.

I'm by no means an expert, obviously. I will leave it toi the TLs, Berts, Vypers, Rabbits, Demos, Lomesises, PLs, Maestros, Josies, A-Moms, etc. to give their assessment.

I'm not confident enough in my assessment in understanding the powers each house holds, but if I remember correctly the house has the power of investigations. They also hold the purse stings.

What it means is alot of the investigations now underway would be done and they can shift to investigating whomever they choose including the President.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

I just hope they don't choose Nancy Pelosi to be their speaker.

Matters in terms of budgets (since all appropriations bills must originate in the House). So funding for "the wall," etc. would all be affected.

The House has the power of impeachment. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were both impeached by the House; however, they were not removed from office, which is the Senate's function (after a President has been impeached).

The less Congress does, the better.

I'd argue the opposite actually. One of the results of Congress doing nothing as a result of gridlock has been further expansions of executive power.

How is this possible? Wouldn't Congress have to approve expanding the power of the President?

Thanks for your expertise, Demos. Smiley

It means more/continued use of executive orders (which Congress can actually overturn, but again, if they're deadlocked, they can't/won't).
