This is the second episode of the Politics and Demographics podcast.
Last week, we discussed the implications of how the Mid-Term Elections are going to affect doctors. Our theme was on the House of Representatives (Congress) and some of the changes that are likely to occur. This week we will consider what will likely change with a turnover, even by a single seat, in a 50-50 Senate. Polling has shown that Americans (mostly young Americans) are going to be surprised and even alarmed with the likely changes that will occur. We do not live in a Democracy and very few are aware of how a Republic works. This is a solid primer on what people need to know.
I am a little worried about the surprise and perceptions that will come in America regardless of who wins. There are a fixed number of Senators. It is their relative party affiliations that are going to the cause of all the heart-burn.
This is information you need to know.
