What are Trump's taxes going to do? I could never understand this obsession with them. I could see during the campaign because any information can be spun. But its a pretty useless fetish at this point.

Why is he hiding them? Because his tax returns will show how he got his money, and it's probably from a foreign country in an under-the-cover corrupt deal, that's what the tax returns will show, and Trump knows it. That's why he's so afraid. And I think you know it too, so don't play dumb.....

This was a very typical midterm. Republicans had a favorable situation in the Senate and they picked up seats. Democrats had a favorable situation in the House and they picked up seats. No surprises. No over or underperforming to speak of.

There will be gridlock for two years. Nothing that hasn't happened over and over throughout history.

The only things that will change are:
1) The wall is probably out of the question.
2) Trump can nominate anyone as judges, especially when RBG keels over.
3) Dems will investigate endlessly (will likely overdo it)
4) Hillary and her cabal skate again

Other than that, not much changes.

I am happy that the majority of American people understand how their healthcare was in jeopardy and made that more an issue than tax cuts for the rich and for big corporations. Even if those tax cuts were to trickle down (which they never do), if you can't afford healthcare and your employer is not providing it, no small tax cut is going to matter.

Now more Democratic issues can be represented. There was no way it is ever good for any party to dominate all branches of government. Our country is so divided right now and it only would have gotten worse if half the population had no voice.

"Our country is so divided right now and it only would have gotten worse if half the population had no voice."

Unless that half are anti-American communists. But anyway.

One interesting thing is that of all the Dem senators that were in red districts, the four that voted against Kavanaugh lost. Only Manchin, who voted to confirm, won.

Had the Dems not pushed all these assault lies in order to ruin someone's life for political gain and just voted based on qualifications, they may have also taken the Senate.

In hindsight, they should have just been decent human beings and they might control Senate and House today. Which of course would allow them to actually put bills on Trump's desk. As it stands now, with only the house, they will get nothing through the now larger R Senate.

So essentially little changes with the House flip. I know it sounds good to Ds but, in reality, although Ds tried to cast the House as a rubber stamp for Trump, they were anything but. Has there every been a president, at least in recent times, that has had as many of his own party against him? True Trump supporters in he House were in the minority last week, and they still are today. So, optically, the flip is a big deal... but legislatively, not really.

As for the Senate, Dems will regret the Kavanaugh tactic if another seat opens up. With a larger, Trumpier, majority in the Senate, the sky is the limit for how conservative a judge can get nominated.

Overall, this is actually not a bad outcome for Republicans as the Senate is so much more important than the House--especially since the House wasnt a majority of Trump Republicans anyway.

Actually, if given a choice of keeping what Rs had:
+1 senate
+23 house
vs
+5 senate
-12 senate

Im not so sure the current situation isnt better for Republicans

Not really. If the Ds had taken the Senate then absolutely.

As it stands, they took the house with a smaller majority than the Rs had. Rs had +32, the Ds are at +12.

In all its a small majority and an even smaller effective majority because even at +32, there were a number of members that were not fully on board with Trump.

So, as I said earlier, this changes just about nothing legislatively. It is good optics for Ds and has the benefit of investigations. But in terms of actual, real life effects, pretty much nil.

Adding to the Senate has a far bigger impact for Rs than gaining the House does for Ds.

While flipping the House has no big benefit for Ds and not much of a difference for Rs, padding the Senate allows them to get more conservative judges through, at all levels, with greater ease.

That is the real world assessment of all this.

Both sides will look to spin this their own way. Ds say it was a wave becasue they took the house and some governorships (true). Rs will say it was not a wave because it was one of the best midterm outcomes for a president since '46 (also true).

But everything that happened was pretty much expected historically speaking. The D pickups were inline with what has always happened. Other races reverted to a more standard split. The only thing that is a little unusual was the R senate pickups--credit the Kavanaugh disaster for that.
