If the Republicans control the House and Senate?

If you think President Obama has problems Now?

Could they?

Would they get busy trying to UNDO anything and EVERYTHING  Obama and the Democrats have done in the last five and half years?

The Worst Case scenario’s predictions are looked at…..

There would be a big push for the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act, which requires congressional approval for all major regulations.

Appointments: Senate confirmation for all but the most routine nominations would be a slog. Republicans might repeal the so-called nuclear option rule, which requires only 51 votes (not 60 to break a filibuster) to confirm an executive or judicial appointment short of the Supreme Court.

It’s difficult to envision a Republican-run Senate confirming any Supreme Court appointment by Obama.

Foreign Policy: The biggest issue might be a nuclear deal with Iran. Odds are the current negotiations will be extended until the end of this year or next year. For now, only the strong hand of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid prevents legislation that might scuttle the negotiations from coming to the floor.

If a deal is reached, a Republican Congress would probably refuse to repeal the sanctions imposed on Iran. The president can waive some of these measures by executive order. But Congress would still have latitude to complicate any arrangement.

As to investigations of alleged administration misconduct, take the current number and double it. Democrats, when not in a state of panic, predict that such a scenario would lead to Republican overreach, paving the way for a Democratic president — and Senate — two years later. If so, the agenda of that new president would be to undo much of what had been done the previous two years…..
