11. Step 1, make a speech. Step 2, bend over and do whatever the GOP wants
We've seen this game for over 4 years now since the Dems first got control of one or more houses of congress. Don't be surprised when taxes on corporations and the rich DO NOT get raised but your Social Security and Medicare get privatized and hacked to bits.

One party rule sucks!
