    The U.S. now has a Republican president, and the GOP controls both the House and Senate. WHat is on the agenda for the next two years?

    I see job 1 as repeal Obamacare. After that it is removing the building blocks of the bloated federal system. First thing is to starve the beast and institute real tax reform. Then begin eliminating programs and departments wholesale. There is no other way. Otherwise the gov't will simply regrow under the next regime.

    Cut taxes, Cut spending, cut down on the overregulation. Cut all Unconstitutional programs.

    Forget Morning in America, that didn't do enough. We need a return to Normalcy.

    Descope the government and eliminate the social engineering and favor paying bureaucracy that is killing the economy.

    All I can say about this little bit of prophesying is:

    Unfortunately I believe Mad Scientist is spot on.

    First Day in Office...

    (1) Reinstitute Mexico City Policy
    (2) Revoke waiver of Jerusalem Embassy Act
    (3) Submit legislation to Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare
    (4) Submit legislation to Congress making current income tax rates permanent and eliminating capital gains tax completely
    (5) Bomb Iranian nuclear program

    ...and that's all just before lunch.

    LOL. As long as it's not a black man in charge everything will start to get better, right?

    Equalize, not inherently cut taxes..... DRASTICALLY cut spending... work on eliminating government departments, agencies, and programs that are redundant and not a job specifically mandated by the constitution

    Would be a long and arduous road though

    But this is a distinct possibility too.. because they are, power hungry politicians in most cases
