Democrats Thought They Were Going to Ram Radical Policy Until Major Losses on Election Night

(NewsReady.com) – A new report by the Los Angeles Times has exposed just how overconfident some left-wing Democrats had become in the weeks before the election. It’s now clear that, thanks to the strong votes for Republican House and Senate candidates, the country has dodged a large and expensive bullet.

Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), one of the drivers behind the failed impeachment campaign, claims Dems were told Republicans only had a 25% chance of retaining their Senate majority and would lose even more ground in the House. That encouraged what could only be described as vengeful fantasies of forcing through a far-left agenda that would’ve destroyed the US economy.

House moderate Scott Peters (D-CA) said, “People were talking in a really cocky way… we were not ever going to talk to Republicans about anything.” The Notorious “Squad,” led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), wanted to impose the so-called Green New Deal and take America back to the 1880s. Additionally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was gloating about how she planned to expand Obamacare using the newly Dem-controlled Senate.

Now, with the Republicans only needing to win one of the Georgia runoffs to hang on to the Senate and the Democrat majority in the House slashed to the bone, all these dreams of political upheaval have crumbled. America can breathe a little easier.
