    Assuming that D's will lose majority in the House, they still have time to pass shitload of legislation until January. What do you think they could pass in those two months?

    I think they are going to try for Cap and Trade. Prey it fails.

    They will refuse to leave in January and Obama will declare martial law because the voters were too stupid to know what was good for them

    Cap and trade would make everything else they have done so far seem like nothing at all. Would be a fatal blow to our economy, and a massive boom for people poised to make Billions of off it. Like Al Gore for example.

    They'll pass a LOT of pork, but nothing of consequence. Cap and Trade and Amnesty would be repealed post-haste, and they know that.

    So they'll try to line their pockets and hope the New Congress' attention is focused elsewhere in January.

    Nothing they pass will be repealed while Obama is still in the WH. Think Veto.
