MSM is projecting that the new Republican will have the majority. Nancy is out, the hypocritical "Tan man" John Boehner is in.
Good luck with that America!
Should the Democrats hold on too the senate the dems hold advantage as ultimately the Democratic White House has veto power.
Veto - meaning "I forbid" in Latin. Which is the power of an officer of the state to stop unilaterally a piece of legislation.
In practice, the veto can be absolute (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members (the United States) can block any resolution) or limited (as in the legislative process of the United States, where a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate may override a Presidential veto of legislation).
A veto gives power, possibly unlimited, to stop changes, but not to adopt them. The influence that the veto conveys to its holder is therefore directly proportional to the holder's conservatism, broadly defined. The more the holder of a veto supports the status quo, the more useful the veto.
Reiterating, if the senate holds Democratic rule, the tea bags still have issues to contend with.
Stay tuned, it's getting interesting.
