Republicans Plan for House Victory

By    |   Thursday, 09 September 2010 04:24 PM EDT

Experts agree that the GOP has a good chance to recapture the House this year. And Republican congressmen are privately planning their strategy in the event they do take control. The basic idea is to use the power of the purse and public hearings to thwart President Obama.

Even if Republicans regain control of Congress, it will be difficult for them to implement a legislative agenda with Obama in office. But they can make life very difficult for him. And even without a majority, they can grind his own legislative agenda to a halt.

In particular, House Republicans hope to hold back spending from the new healthcare law and the $862 billion fiscal stimulus program. And of course they want to cut spending and taxes if possible, arguing that an increase in employment would be the result.
