Who is looking forward to new politicians in January?

I am. I wouldn’t have voted for most of the newbies but I am definitely ready for something different.

Michigan will have a new governor (R) and republican controlled house and senate. Usually I would barf my guts out but I'm willing to wait and see what happens.

I am looking forward to new congress too. Maybe this year they will do their jobs.

  • I am. I'm anxiously awaiting how they will do. Florida has a new governor and we also have Rubio.

  • Looking forward to? I don't think I would go that far for myself. Probably just interested to see how things proceed. I am a bit of a pessimist when it comes to elected officials (even though mine vote the way I want them to on most things). As a whole, they don't impress me in general. I guess I'm just sceptical about the new House majority and how they will work with the Senate.

  • Hopefull the reps have learned somewhat of a lesson. That would be not being so liberal.

  • I am trying to be optimistic but politicians from both sides of the aisle have proven time and time again they cannot be trusted.
