How Can WE Impact the Elections?

 

Dan M. Blaylock, President, Adams-Burch, Inc.
NAW 2014 Chairman of the Board

Well, it is that time of year again. We are only a few days away from the mid-term Congressional elections, the airwaves are filled with an endless stream of campaign ads, and every political pundit in the country is musing — on TV and in print — about who they think will win or lose, and what the outcome will mean. Historically, the president’s political party tends to lose seats in Congress in the mid-term elections, and if the president has low approval ratings, as President Obama does today, the losses can be significant. So House Republicans are expected to pick up seats in November and strengthen their majority, and Republicans are on track to win enough Senate seats to take the majority away from the Democrats. And after dealing with years of economic uncertainty and hyper-government activity, employers and employees alike are wondering how the outcome of this critical election will impact them.
