The Dems have political capital now, a mandate, from the people. And they intend to use it. We've learned a lot from the Republicans these past few years. For instance, when your the majority, you get to do as you please, you don't even have to listen to the concerns of the minority if you don't want to. Your measley 200 Congressmen may as well never show up. And BYW, all your righties - time to quit your jobs. THe Dems will raise taxes, reducing your incentive to work.
