Why Romney could be a transformational president

I would be careful about this. They also said that about President Obama. A return of the New Deal and well not so sure we got a New Deal here!
If Romney wins the election, it’s almost a sure bet that Republicans win control of both the House and the Senate. And that matters. Right now, the GOP’s agenda is the Ryan budget, and that’s entirely fiscal: It’s a premium support plan for Medicare, and tax cuts, and deep cuts to Medicaid, food stamps and other domestic programs. All that can be passed through budget reconciliation — which is to say, all that can be made immune to the filibuster.

So if Romney wins and the Republicans take control, they could accomplish quite a lot on party-line votes, even if their majorities are slim, and Democrats are opposed. Indeed, Romney could end up being a fairly transformational president for conservatives so long as he’s paired with a Republican Congress.
OK a different context than the one I had in mind. All the same let's not get ahead of ourselves Romney has to win the election and the GOP has to win both houses of Congress in November!
