GOP Losses Could Spark Partisan Warfare

Associated Press, October 22, 2006

…Some of Bush's sharpest critics would rise to top positions with a Democratic takeover.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., probably would become speaker. Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., a foe of extending Bush tax cuts, would become chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.
Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, who has sponsored legislation calling for steps that could open the way to Bush's impeachment, would lead the Judiciary Committee.
If Democrats win the Senate, Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada _ one of the most outspoken of all Bush critics _ probably would ascend to majority leader…
A Democratic takeover of one or more chambers would all but guarantee that Bush would not get his Social Security overhaul or further tax cuts through Congress.
One Bush initiative that actually might see improved chances is his immigration proposal for a "guest worker" program. That actually has more Democratic than Republican support…

Bush’s ridiculous tax cuts and his destruction of Social Security are not going to happen regardless of who wins in November because neither Party really wants either. But, it is enough for me to vote Republican to prevent a guest worker program or amnesty for 20 million illegal immigrants.
