Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Monday that hes looking forward to one party controlling all aspects of government, despite GOP charges that it would be a disastrous Nov. 4 outcome.
Republicans had a chance to rule. They failed miserably. I think its time to give the other party a chance, Dean said on MSNBC.
Republicans recently warned there would be grave consequences for the country if Democrats were in charge of both chambers of Congress and the White House. At a rally in Ohio, for instance, GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) said he would provide a balance to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who plan to increase taxes.
But Dean dismissed the argument, saying: You cannot trust Republicans with your money. They will borrow and spend, borrow and spend, borrow and spend.
