House and Senate?!

Julian Harris
Julian Harris

I did not expect Republicans to take the House and the Senate. And the Presidency, and they will put in horrible justicies.

Look I'm the farthest from a Shillary supporter but it would have been much better if Democrats won the Senate.

What will they do first? Will there be any check on their power to push a ton of reactionary bullshit through? Will they revoke gay marriage, Roe vs. Wade?

They'll do some bad stuff. Honestly, that's worse than Trump winning, even for the liberals.

What will they do first?
Declare climate change a hoax and make it illegal to talk about it. Also they'll nullify any measure in place against it.

Let the world burn, babay!

Hillary is going to jail, climate change is going to be ignored, gay marriage is going to be repealed, and obamacare is going to be replaced with trumpcare, and workers rights are going to be fucked sideways.
I can't believe this is happening.
What are the fucking odds?

This was always going to happen. Shillary was going to fuck workers much worse. At least the Democrats will put up a fight in the senate and the house. Stop trying to make this worse than it is. Shillary would have given you idpol victories. So what? We fight against capitalism. Prepare for hard times. Relish in them.

worrying about gay marriage and Roe v. Wade
not bothering to mention that the speaker of the house wants to abolish food stamps and medicare

Why are liberals so terrible?

Obamacare was shit, but it had one good side. Students under the age of 26 could be under the medical insurance of their parents, until they get enough support for themselves to pay for medical insurance.

That no longer exists.

EG, for all of us that effects.

We will now be without medical insurance.

Leo White

how will they do that when they don't control either?

Angel Wright
Angel Wright

people continue to ignore that the only way to get a bill through the Senate is to have a supermajority that Republicans don't have

It'll be another four years of nothing in Congress. Maybe the Republican Supreme Court doing retarded things will make Americans realize how terrible of an institution it is, but probably not. What I'm most worried about is the egregious gerrymandering that will inevitably happen in 2020.

Those too of course. I will be without healthcare myself if they repeal Obamacare. I just assume with Pence behind the throne symbolic cultural moves to demoralize liberals will come first.

She was planning to privatize SS. She was going to sign TPP. She was going to sell out to the big banks. How would she not fuck you worse? Trump, for all his faults, cannot get this done because he does not have half of one party and the rest on his side. He does not have the political capital to do these things. Kill yourself.

how will they do that when they don't control either?
Delay tactics, just like Republicans had after Ted Kenedy died. Republicans do not have complete control. They need 60 seats for that in the senate, and they do not have that.

Connor Young

I don't have one off the top of my head, but it got a lot of media coverage at the time. It was in the budget the Republicans passed the year they took the house (and, to be fair, probably most of their budgets since.)

Republican control is probably for the better, tbh.

Anyone who imagines that Trump really intends to bury the hatchet is delusional. Especially with many prominent supporters already demanding that the God Emperor collect the heads of his enemies (with the Speaker of the House being near the top of that list).
A Democrat controlled House or Senate would happily capitulate to all of Trump's demands, just like they do whenever a Republican is President. With Republicans in control, there is a decent chance that they'll spend the next two years sniping at each other and get nothing done.

Kevin Walker

She was planning to privatize SS
this is even more likely with trump
She was going to sign TPP
looks like obama will try to pass this before his term is over, if he does there's no way trump will repeal it. even if obama doesn't pass it, there's a good chance republicans will push trump to do it.
She was going to sell out to the big banks
again, what makes you think trump isn't going to do this? you know he isn't actually anti-bank right? that was just fascist rhetoric
How would she not fuck you worse?
because trump will do everything she would have done plus repeal obamacare (i know it's shit but millions of people still rely on it) plus probably pass a national right-to-work law and god knows what else
He does not have the political capital to do these things
why would he need political capital to do these things when his whole party and some of the dems are already itching to do them anyway?
Kill yourself
what are you so upset about? you seem like you've been sipping too much of the fash koolaid and you think trump will actually be good
Delay tactics
the democrats have proven time and time again that they don't have the spine or the balls for that kind of thing

Colton Foster

this is even more likely with trump
No. He doesn't have a filibuster-proof majority in the senate and protecting SS was one of his campaign promises.

Unlikely to happen.
again, what makes you think trump isn't going to do this? you know he isn't actually anti-bank right? that was just fascist rhetoric
So you're saying it would be fine to get fucked in the ass as long as it was Hillary doing it? Dumbass.

Dems won't want to be seen backing Trump policies.
the democrats have proven time and time again that they don't have the spine or the balls for that kind of thing
They will need to do so if they want to keep their seats.

Again, are you saying this wouldn't have happened under Hillary? She was explicitly gunning for that. Trump is a fucking idiot that won't know what to do with all that power. We can oppose him easier. At least when the country is fucked, they won't be able to blame "the left" .

no? i'm saying trump will be just as bad and probably worse

There's a thing called cloture. Senators don't have to actually filibuster, just say that they want to.

You couldn't get any worse than Hillary. At least with Trump, you can expect that he won't wield state power with as much skill as Hillary. This is a victory for us. We can now proceed to bring Liberals up into true leftists. The workers that voted for Trump will be disappointed and they are ours for the taking. Stop trying to make this as some kind of bad thing. This is great.

Dominic Sanders

Sure, and so what? Trump isn't W. He's so arrogant that he's unlikely to listen to others.

Trump isn't Hitler, but in case he is, grab a gun, stash some ammo, and get fit. We are going to make America socialist. Keep this in mind, and realize that this is an opportunity. We would not have this if Hillary had won.

Wyatt Hernandez

I honestly think Obamacare will be repealed but I can't say the same about medicare/medicaid since a lot of republicans like those.

People forget congress runs this country and not the president.

Start educating people to vote for democrats in congress now. Election is 2 years away, get ready.

Adam Morales

Nothing. If Trump becomes fascist AND comes after me i'll kill myself first.

Guess we're all going to obey Christian Sharia now. Why yes, the earth is only 6,000 years old, of course!
Whatever do you mean record high temperatures? It's a nice cool day, I'm only slightly melting into a puddle of ooze.
Haha yes, praise Jesus and pass the Starbucks! Of course, I'd love to pay a fee for not using commercial electrical power!
Oh dear, I'm out of a job because I broke my leg. Time to starve! No, I wouldn't think of seeking worker recompense or unemployment, that's welfare queen commie talk! I'll just sit here and rot away, it's the right thing to do since I can't make corporations any money in the condition I'm in!

You are right but it is more like a make or break moment for the left. I just hope. At least any problems the USA will face will not be the dems' fault
