what if the Republicans win the election?

Well I am old enough to have lived through many Republicans administrations and here what I would expect

1 - Republicans have stated they would move to repeal the health care law, therefore about 30 million people would lose their healthcare and insurance companies would go back to denying coverage for pre existing conditions, etc ...

2 - US will wage 1 or 2 wars probably on Iran or Syria or both

3 - New administration will make the Bush tax cuts permanent and give additional tax cuts at the expense of adding the poor to the pool and removing some tax breaks (home mortgage insurance, etc ... )

4 - Give the oil companies rights to drill wherever they can find oil

5 - Cut welfare to the poor and students

6 - Try reforming medicare and social security by doing means testing and vouchers.

Now balancing the budget and reducing the debt would remain VERY ELUSIVE (in my opinion) because their idea of cutting the deficit is based on the hopes that all of a sudden the growth would be between 4 and 8 percent.

If you like what you read then by all means you should vote Republican

And while at it, if the Republicans so strongly believe that government should stay out of our personal lives, then why are they so bent on telling women what they can and cannot do with their bodies?
