    The newly elected congress MUST cut government spending. If they do that, stand back and watch the economy soar to the wonder of the world.

    So in 2 years, Obama has done more damage to the country than the 8 of Bush (Dubya)? I doubt it. 2 years isn't usually long enough to affect the economy either way. And by economists measurements, the Great Recession is over, and has been since late 2009, and it began due to BUSH's policies! How soon some forget! Remember the Great Depression took over a decade to recover from. This isn't going to happen overnight.

    How do Republicans plan on reducing the national deficit if they implement a minor $100 billion spending decrease but reduce federal income by several trillion in tax cuts? How is this any different from what is going on now?

    "Critical damage" is a matter of opinion. Frankly, the economic collapse has done critical damage to the country, not Obama. So far, I think the best you can say is that Obama has been unable to reverse it. I also find it disturbing that you want no compromise when conservatives have been criticizing the Democrats for lack of the same. Your views are not shared by all Americans. Neither are mine. Compromise helps us get things done.

    Here's my view on this. High expectations?. Republican RINO lifer leaders, counting their chickens before they hatch, think they are more confident of their chances of winning control of the House and possibly even the Senate, and have begun plotting, a 2011 agenda topped by a push for more than $100 billion in spending cuts, tax reductions and attempts to undo key parts of President Barack Obama's health care and financial regulation laws. Talk is cheap, all they are interested in is money, greed, corruption, above the law, (ignore us common people unless they need your votes), career politician's who will take money from any special interest and say or do anything to keep his hold on power. It's secret government by the insiders, for the insiders only today. That's for BIG BUSINESS "ONLY" and their deep pocket's. That's why nothing gets done in the Party of "NO" for us. Once again it's time for the politicians to mount their "stumps" and begin pontificating their political virtues and make promises, which for the most part, will never be kept.

    I hope they don't get a fat head over this change in government. Putting more Republicans in office was the only way the american people have to block the damage done by our other two heads of government, Obama and the Democrats.

    Critical damage to this country has been done and continues to be done by Obama and he had to be stopped. This doesn't mean the american people are approving Republican rule, we just had to stop Obama and the democrats. The people still want their country and lives back and that's the only reason there may be more republicans in Washington. We are tired of roll over representation, we want stand up and fight representation. We don't want compromise, we want spine and 'no' back on the hill. We want reality, sanity, and accountability.
