    OK, so let's assume the election shakes out with the GOP firmly in control of the House and the Senate evenly divided with Joe Biden providing the tie breaking vote.
    What should the first order of business be for the new congress?

    It damn well ought to be balancing the budget, but it won't be.

    I think declaring Obamacare unconstitutional ought to be.
    Yes, passing a budget (something the Democrat Congress has refused to do) should be like #2 or 3.

    Not much will get done.
    There will be a lot of talk and showmanship...but that is about it.

    but you asked what SHOULD be...there is no other issue more important than addressing the economy, namely stopping the enormous wasted funds that have been spent this year.

    What do you mean? They can declare whatever they want, but it won't change anything. It's up to the SCOTUS now.

    Issue arrest warrants for ex-Senator Boxer and every member of Code Pink that had any connection to delivering $600,000 aid to our enemies in Fallujah.

    Put a balanced budget and the repeal of Obamacare on the floor.

    It's important to know who votes for and against them.

    It's disappointing that Carly Fiorina won't hit Boxer right between the eyes with that. Fiorina is so McCain like, in that way. I know what McCain said about Boxer, but it's not the same as Fiorina doing it.

    With Obama's Veto the best you can hope for is De funding Parts of the Health care bill for the next 2 years. And declaring it unconstitutional? Controlling congress will not help with that goal. You need it to move to the supreme court before heaven forbid Obama has a chance to replace one of the Conservative judges on the court. Or that will never happen.
