We lost the battle over higher taxes and lower spending in the election, the current debate is just Kabuke. In the mean time the Obama administration will continue to issue regulations, implement Obama care and the economy will stagnate. Stagnation serves their interest as it keeps the monetary base from ballooning into money and higher interest rates. The takeover of the economy and our Republic will accelerate. It's all up the states now to nullify existing and coming Federal regulations and mandates. Congress is irrelevant.
