Let’s look at the record

Since 1920 the GOP has controlled both houses of Congress and the white house 2 times for at least 8 years . One time ended in a depression , the other in a recession that barely averted another depression. For those 70 years in between those financial meltdowns the left controlled DC for all but 4 years in the mid 50’s . They can’t seem to run the government either without burning it down.
