There’s no doubt that Democrats are fearing the worst once Republicans regain majorities in both houses of Congress.
Many believe that it’s not a matter of ‘if’ the GOP gains back majorities. It’s a matter of just how many seats will Democrats lose.
Should the party win back control of both houses of Congress, GOP lawmakers are expected to chair many committees responsible for oversight. Many prominent Republicans are already planning investigations on key members of the Biden regime, including Dr. Fauci.
One investigation will focus on what caused the COVID-19 virus breakout and how the U.S. government handled it. A focus will be on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s virus czar who has sometimes given conflicting advice and warred with former Trump administration officials.
“Fauci will have his own parking space at the Capitol,” said one top Republican member.
Also, look for investigations into the FBI’s handling of the 2017 shooting of Republican lawmakers practicing for the annual baseball game and President Joe Biden’s opening of the U.S.-Mexico border.
One key Republican outlined several points of contention that Republicans will hone in on once majorities are won back:
- It won’t be a filibuster-proof majority, but Republican congressional leaders are hoping the midterm elections will give the GOP one to three more seats in the Senate. In the House, the GOP needs only to flip four seats, and they are hoping for 30.
- At the end of August, Republicans will be presenting their “Commitment to America,” listing election and governing priorities. Topping the list will be beating inflation, fighting crime, and cutting gas prices.
- Democrats are pushing Biden to announce his reelection plans right after the midterm elections in November. Their goal is both to quiet party grumbling about his poor polling and put potential challengers on notice.
Historically speaking, it’s not unusual for the minority party to secure congressional majorities during the first midterm elections.
