"2006 Election"

All I can say is Congrats to all you Liberals out there. I'm not going to mention any names, because there are a lot of you, and don't want to leave anyone out!!

I think a lot of people voted for Whitehouse while holding their nose.

It's not liberals though...Across the country there are a lot of high-quality moderate Dems running, which should help Congress a lot.

Our Government is currently broken, tonight if the trend continues we will go a long way to fixing it. The people will benefit as a result.

me too bob, the guy reminds me a little of Chris Collins from NECN Sports Late Night

and how can anyone keep a straight face and have voted for uncle Ted again for 6 more years? I hope that's it for him

I hope my tax money doesn't pay for any illeagal imigrants anything , make them go away and enter leagally the right way, then follow the laws we have to also. I'm sick of this softness, times are hard and it's time to get tough. Take care of Americans first. I love my country, I want it back.

so now we get ready to get taxed to death

This election was not a support if Liberal ideas. This was a clear message about Iraq, and the conservative base being pissed on wide range of issues.

This ass whuppin' should send a clear message to republicans to get thier acts together on the issues the Rep base cares about. Its prob a blessing in disguise for them. Because after 2 years of Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the house, The American people will see what the Left has to offer, NOTHING!

And i can't wait for my Taxes to go up. Charlie Rengel already has plans to repeal ALL the Bush tax cuts. Thanks Dems! I just cant wait to send you my hard earned money!

Time to move forward and give these elected officials a chance. This was a shift of the middle (and then some) . Time to see if many of these new elected officials can screw up less than those they replaced.

Well 16 years of do nothing goveners the people of our state were looking for a change, but I myself do not like the look of things to come, more taxes and flip flop answers. I just don't get what they see in devail, he seems very shadey to me. If I would have voted for Cristy Manhole but that would have been a throw away vote. At least Healy was on the sportsmans side of the issues

Now the preasure is ALL on the Dems. They must deliver. They've made a million promises. So they have some high expectations.

Wait till America see's the crap Nancy Pelosi and the house is gonna try and pass. A San Fran Liberal in control of the House

Deval's position on illegal immigration alone should have been enough to keep him out. There is no question that your taxes will contribute to increased illegal immigration incentive to Massachusetts based on in-state tuition offerings alone never mind the preference affirmative actions automatically give illegals in the admission process. We wont even get into the Drivers License thing.

From a CNN article on Pelosi - my comments in parenthesis

So what will be on the agenda come January? Pelosi has said that in the first 100 hours of her speakership she will push for action implementing all 9/11 Commission recommendations on national security (ok - good thing), raising the minimum wage to $7.25 (which will be pushed back to consumers, bad for me). eliminating corporate subsidies for oil companies (not sure what this entials, but my gut is that somehow the cost will be pushed back on me, so bad for me), allowing the government to negotiate Medicare drug prices (same as prior comment), imposing new restrictions on lobbyists (ok with me), cutting interest rates on college loans (who is paying for that, most likely me) and supporting embryonic stem-cell research (dont care).

And what about the persnickety allegation that she will skipper tax hikes through the House? Sure she will, said the shoo-in speaker.

"We will revisit the tax cuts at the high end in order to give tax cuts to the middle class," she said. (BS - that tax cuts that went through benefit ALL of us, it benefits those that pay more, more than those that pay less. What you'll do is promise to benefit the middle class, but just repeal the cuts and use the $ to fund the things above whihc are going to cost me!!!!!)

Think outside of the box a bit...it's pretty easy to flip all those comments around and show the positive side.

But please, if you're going to tell me that reducing corporate regulation and encouraging free market competition in Pharma is a bad thing because we need corporate welfare to encourage business innovation...

Then I really have no idea what economic model you stand for

Ok here's my question regarding a minimum wage hike. If the rate goes up say $2 an hour for the new minimum wage, will my employer suddenly hike my pay as well? I mean, if the guy sweeping floors at my place is getting an extra $2 an hour, so why should'nt a skilled employee like myself get an extra $2 an hour in my pay also??

It would depend on how far you were from the min wage today, and what kind of pressure your employer would have to be able to retain or attract a skilled employee like yourself.

If you were already a few bucks above it, I'd say you would probably see a bump or easily be able to bargin for one. If you were earning 30 bucks an hour I doubt it would have much short-term impact.

As an aside. Most of the non-partisan groups I've read who have studied the issue think the doom and gloom is mostly bunk.
