Accountability may be arriving for Democrat lawmakers sooner than they think. Right now, the left is playing all their cards as they work to fundamentally change the United States with control of the House and the Senate. 

Democrats have shown Americans how they handle power. Right now, the left is working to end the filibuster, pack the Supreme Court with four new liberal justices, pass legislation that outlaws photo ID to vote, etc. Democrats control the House of Representatives with five extra seats; the Senate, on the other hand, is technically split 50/50, although Democrats control it since Kamala Harris is vice president.

Right now, the left isn’t holding anything back. However, their hasty ways to get what they want no matter the cost isn’t that smart. In fact, according to Washington Examiner, Democrats are actually on their way to losing their House and Senate majorities next year. 

A Rush to Power

Political operatives are already warning that Democrats’ rush to obtain more power will ultimately “burn down” the current congressional majorities they enjoy.

Others have suggested that Democrats in Congress are attempting to toss “red meat” to their base, even with the knowledge that things like packing the Supreme Court are unlikely to gain traction without President Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi firmly behind it. 

Furthermore, there is the factor of history to consider. Each time a Democrat president has held office, liberal lawmakers haven’t fared well in the midterms. Right now, Republicans are working hard to take back the House and Senate in 2022. In fact, Republicans are using some of Democrats’ most extreme policies to energize GOP voters to come out and vote. 

Packing the Supreme Court is something that even a minority of leftists have sounded the alarm against. Pelosi stated yesterday that she won’t bring this legislation to the House floor; on Thursday, the White House also stated that President Biden “may or may not” support the Judiciary Act of 2021. 

All Hands on Deck for 2022

The 2022 midterms elections will be the ultimate test in U.S. politics.

It will determine whether or not Democrats continue to maintain and abuse the majorities they have now. The midterm races next year will also decide whether or not Republicans are able to regain checks-and-balances in the U.S. Senate. 

Do you believe Democrats’ rush to force through far-left policies will backfire on their party in the midterm elections? Let us know in the comments section below.
