Barney Frank to Newsmax: GOP May Win House in 2022 But Won’t Change Programs

Republicans will probably retake the House next year, considering the traditional way the opposite party of that holding the White House wins the midterms, and the effects of gerrymandering nationwide, but they won’t likely change many of the programs the Democrat-controlled House will have put in place while it held the majority this year and next, former Rep. Barney Frank said on Newsmax Thursday.

“It’s going to be a rerun of Obamacare because the nature of politics is not ideological,” the Massachusetts Democrat said on Newsmax’s “National Report.” “It’s easier to keep something from happening in the first place and undo it after it has been put in place and people have participated in the benefits.”

Frank added that he is “much more optimistic” about the Democrats’ chances of winning in 2024, the year of the next presidential race, than in 2022 because, by 2024, the programs the Democrats implemented will start taking hold and prove popular.
