Finally, we can get things done

Hallelujah, the Republicans are back. The people have sent Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to the dust bin of history, never to be heard from again. Now maybe we can move forward in our country. Now those 218 House Bills laying on Harry Reid’s desk can at least be put on the floor of the Senate and voted on. You think the Republicans were the party of no? Sorry, it was Harry Reid and Obama. Republicans are the party of “know.” Now we can get the Keystone pipeline built, a project that will create thousands of jobs and do away with all those dangerous oil trains that belong to billionaire Warren Buffet. Maybe we can get rid of the ill-conceived Obamacare bill that was created and passed by the Democrats in the Senate without a single Republican vote. That’s right, and if the truth be known bills are suppose to originate in the House not the Senate. Now the Republicans can come up with a health care bill that will really lower costs. How about immigration reform? Let’s get that border secured and come up with a bill that will be fair to all people, so they don’t have to sneak across the border anymore, but can come in with their head held high with dignity. The people have spoken, we are sick and tired of Reid and Pelosi. We are sick of all the scandals, like Benghazi, the IRS, and Fast and Furious, from this administration that was suppose to be the most transparent. Hopefully in two more years we will get a Republican president to top it off.
