ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of a political change in the U.S. through the 2006 midterm election. According to sources, after releasing the final results, both the Senate and the House slip from Republican Party control. Thus, doubts surface if the Democratic Congress can hold to account what many view as the radical neo-conservatives who have controlled the federal government since 2001. However, it gives Democrats power to control spending and launch investigations.
