If the GOP gains the WH in 2012 and gains control of both houses of Congress, you can expect huge cuts to entitlements, to programs for the poor, to the EPA. You will probably see the end of green initiatives and oil companies will be unleached to do as they want on federally owned lands. All the while, the wealthy will receive more and more tax cuts and loopholes that are being examined now will be left for the forseeable futures. Independent voters are not stupid. They know who the GOP governs for. They govern for the wealthy. Always have...always will. It's the Republican Way of doing things.
