2-A backlash to the "throw money at the problem" solutions Congress continues to put forth.
3-No progress on health coverage. Too costly and limited middle ground.
4-Taxes, little if any change in the form of relief. I believe there is a better chance that we will see tax increases in things like energy.
5-With Bush out of the picture it will begin to be OK again to be Republican.
6-Republicans will try to re-brand themselves as conservatives. Progress will be slow and resisted by elements within the party.
7- The auto-bailout will NOT succeed.
8- Any rebound in the economy will come from the private sector in spite of government efforts.
My Political wish list:
-Obama raises the bar in Washington DC. Corruption is flushed out and those responsible are held accountable.
-Rural voters get a voice.
-Campaign reform that allows more voices to be heard, not just the extremist, sensational or media condoned factions.
-Government lives within its means ( Governor Chris Gregiore has shown resolve and made some tough choices – applause from me!)
-The critical mass realizes that government is not the best way to solve problems.
