According to the far-left NBC News, the Gop Party will win the House of Representatives by a razor-thin margin of 219 to 216.
If these predictions come true, there will be a collective sigh of relief, and it will be one of the few bright spots in what was otherwise a terrible outcome for the Republican Party in the midterm elections.
What was supposed to be a wave in favor of the Republican Party — one that I was certain would happen — turned out to be anything but.
When it was all said and done, Democrats might have expanded their control on the crucial United States Senate by one member. Democrats might get that increase if incumbent Democrat U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock defeats Republican Herschel Walker in Georgia’s December runoff. Warnock defeated Walker by nearly a full point last week. Because no one received more than 50% of the vote in the contest, the law mandates a runoff.
In a worst-case scenario, Democrats would control the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. Democrats will no longer require both U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) to pass legislation if they win 51 Senate seats. That very probably means the end of the filibuster, which both Manchin and Sinema have refused to end.
Without the filibuster, the Senate could enact any nonsense it wanted, including extending the Supreme Court, socializing medicine, and who knows what else, and a Democrat-led House would rubber stamp it all.
The insanity that is going to emanate from the Senate will, at the very least, be subject to some form of scrutiny since the Republican Party will control the House of Representatives.
It is important to keep in mind that NBC has already messed up one of its projections for the House. NBC projected three days ago that the Republican Party would win the House by a considerably narrower margin of 222 to 212 seats.
Nothing is definite in this crazy election season until current House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — or whoever — is handed the gavel by current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
