The Republicans are exactly as out-of-touch with what taxpaying Americans want as the Democrats are.
Until a party starts talking about reducing power, reducing pork, reducing costs, eliminating bribery (lobbying), and implementing term limits, then it will all remain status quo. A new wrapper on the same smelly turd.
Will the Reps win back some seats? Yes. Will they be able to maintain them? No. That's because they don't understand what Americans are pissed off about.
Once they disrupt the Democrats lock, the Reps will have the same power-drunk glazed stare the Dems have had for the past year. Any new ideas or promises will be out the window and it will be business as usual in DC.
