I bet $100 the GOP will keep majority in either House, or Senate, or both.

Any takers?

Right after the election people will figure out they got screwed by the new tax code...

That will be the real test.

Plus itís being paid for by the rise in the national debt which needs to be paid off first, by law.

Moose, were you trying to say the economy and jobs are doing well and that is why the House and/or Senate may keep seats?

By the way, I have been wondering how you lost your teeth falling into the crevasse. Could you describe (seriously) so I will never be tempted to go there. Smiles, lynnie. Oops, maybe not smiles, how about hugs? :)

"I bet $100 the GOP will keep majority in either House, or Senate, or both."

Lame bet. Pretty much like 'heads I win, tails you lose'. Pick one, and you're on.

Disclaimer: I can't predict results of the election.

I use price of all inclusive resorts and Caribbean cruises to gauge the state of economy.
This year Christmas break prices are significantly higher than in the last few years.
As a result I believe that economy is doing OK.

P.S. This is probably a good gauge for a middle class.
It's not about top 10% and bottom 10% of the population.

a) It's the economy, Stupid! (moose)
b) It's the far left, Stupid! (hfcs)

I no longer consider myself Left, just middle of the road liberal. Here's part of the reason.

I won't be THAT surprised if down the road (a) Trump's reelected and later (b) his daughter becomes first female U.S. President.

Lynne, keep yer mouth protected when falling into a crevasse, that's all.

Anyway, the economy is growing, unemployment is down, and people are more optimistic than they were a year ago. What's more, the Democrats seem to be focused on Trump's behavior then on the GOP's agenda.

Well, anybody takes that bet?
