    Assuming Republicans retain control of the Senate, how far left can Biden, Kamala, AOC, Pelosi, and "The Squad" actually pull the US? What are some specific things they can do, and some specific things they probably cannot do?

    If they legitimately won the election, I hope they go full throttle and give the American electorate what they voted for.

    The presidential election, however, is not over yet.

    If Biden/Harris get in, I'll be thankful for a Republican Senate there to check them when needed. We've seen how much damage they've done to the country with just a House majority. These are not people who should have unchecked authority.

    The house can only do so much without control of the Senate. And the SCOTUS is now controlled by conservatives as well.

    How many cope accounts have you made from being banned because you couldn't handle Trump being President?

    Biden is so much more popular than Obama that he broke Obamas record. What a load of BS. United States of Banana Republic.

    2 years of house investigations into trump admin with a cooperative justice dept. 2 years of Biden executive orders. National security agency that will be able to properly protect elections.

    What damage did the house do? Aside from pass Trump's massive spending.

    hello Here's the thing,

    a President Biden can do the same thing as Mr. Trump did, regarding executive orders. i imagine he can reverse all of Mr. Trump's EO's and then issue his own (which will no doubt be challenged in the courts, as Mr. Trump's has).

    much of Mr. Trump's deregulation can also be undone. i think the EPA is going to have a very different playbook by late winter.

    a President Biden would have a pretty free hand on foreign policy, also - just as President Trump has had.

    Biden doesn't need GOP consent in congress for any of this stuff.

    *muses*


    if the GOP retain control of the Senate, i really don't see that as the end of the world. Joe Biden was never going to be some crazy radical, you know? he's going to put forward a modest centrist agenda - and there will be votes that can be "gotten", whether its Mr. Romney or Mrs. Collins or Mrs. Murkowski.

    McConnell is going to want to cut deals, too. if the GOP retains control of the Senate, then no big bundles of money are going to arrive in his state unless he cuts a deal with Mr. Schumer - and Kentucky loves taxpayer largesse.

    this ain't 2008, you know? those red southern states that like to stuff their faces at the Federal trough aren't going to get a free lunch like they did with President Obama. back then, they could obstruct away and make their constituents proud since they knew that Obama, Pelosi and Reid were going to muscle through a stimulus package without them. they got to have their rhetorical cake and eat it too.

    not this time.

    The damage is already done. The whole plan was to call the election early for Biden, or at least make it seem like he is way ahead (Florida and Texas being called late, AZ being called early, Alaska not even being called at all) to make Trump look like a sore loser.

    Trump will end up winning in court and they will just keep undermining him for four more years. More fake impeachments and more fake news.

    With any luck the senate should be able to screw over anything they try.

    And when there is a tie she decides.

    Ties are very likely when the Senate is this even.

    PA probably. MI and GA recounts will probably be won without any significant supreme court battle.

    AZ and NV won't even matter.
