Dean: One-Party Rule Would Rule

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Monday that he’s 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 it’s 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.”
