What To Expect From The 114th Congress

With the +GOP in control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, it's fairly clear that we're in for a world of mayhem come January 2015 (possibly even January 2017). Here's to expect out of the 114th Congress when it convenes in January:


  1. No relief for student loans and retransferring their control back over to the same banks that sank the economy in 2007-9.
  2. No relief for homeowners on their mortgages, especially when those mortgages are worth more than the property invested.
  3. No relief for the working poor in terms of extending the earned-income tax credit and food stamps, or by raising the minimum wage.
  4. No relief for the unemployed with an extention of unemployment insurance.
  5. More red-tape for trying to file for a patent.
  6. More tax-cuts for the wealthiest individuals and corporations.
  7. More tax-hikes on everyone else.
  8. More red-tape to gauge any kind of government services.
  9. Higher likelihood of finding contaminated food in market due to loose regulations and hampering USDA's ability to inspect plants.
  10. Higher likelihood of finding contaminated water due to gutting Clean Water Act and defunding the Environmental Protection Agency.
  11. Higher likelihood of breathing contaminated air due to gutting Clean Air Act and defunding the EPA.
  12. Higher likelihood of workplace injuries and deaths due to defunding Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
  13. Higher likelihood of industrial disasters due to defunding the Chemical Hazard and Safety Board.
  14. Increased speculation on Wall Street due to weakened oversight from defunding the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Consumer Protection Bureau, and gutting Dodd-Frank.
  15. Possible cleared bill out of Congress to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and on to +Barack Obama's desk (which he'll veto).
  16. More hearings over ludicrous conspiracy theories.
  17. Attempts to impeach the President for doing his job.
  18. No attempt to pass any budget, and more attempts to shut down the government so that nothing gets done.
  19. Eliminate affordable housing for people with fixed-income.
This is a basic outline of what to look for, as there's more than you can look up yourselves on +Google or Bing. You can also look up other outlines of what the Republicans plan to do on +PoliticusUSA+AlterNet+Raw Story, etc., who will have even more detailed descriptions.
