While the economy is a big part of the reason for the dems' loss, there's an even bigger one: healthcare "reform." They insisted we needed it and rammed it down the country's throat, against the voters' wishes. They figured even if we were angry back in the summer through Christmas of '09, we'd be well over it by the election of '10. Well... they were wrong. We didn't get over it and we didn't forget... nor have we forgiven them.
Yes, the economy is bad and yes, that often spells a significant loss for whatever party is currently in control. But the bottom line is it wouldn't be demogeddon had they not foisted healthcare and all their other overreaching policies on an unwilling electorate.
Time to pay the piper, ladies and gents.
