Since the 2010 mid-term elections, when Americans gave the GOP control of the House, Republican leadership stated that their power was limited by the fact that they only controlled 1/2 of 1/3 of the Federal Government. No surprise coming from Washington, but that statement is misleading. Although true, the Supreme Court, 1/3 of the Federal Government, shouldn’t come into this discussion. By design, no party is ever supposed to “control” the SCOTUS. So, the GOP actually controlled 1/2 of the 1/3 that writes the laws. Now, following the 4 November midterms, the GOP controls 100% of the Congress, and 100% of the Nation’s purse strings. They also control 100% of the law making body in the Federal Government. The President can’t make laws, he can only sign or veto what Congress sends him, so the GOP has far more power than they will admit.
America’s voters gave them a mandate, and it’s time to step up to the plate and defend the Constitution, and the liberties of the American People.
