Bigger Republican Majority Plans to Push Bush Agenda: Republicans, with greater numbers in the Congress convening this week, intend to use their strength to help President Bush pursue his second-term agenda. (CARL HULSE, 1/02/05, NY Times)

"This is going to probably be the most productive two years of our Republican majority," said Tom DeLay of Texas, the House majority leader. "It's not just Social Security and tax reform, it's tort reform, regulatory reform, restraining spending, redesigning the House, redesigning the government."

Given that the first Bush term was the most productive since FDR's first, that'll take some doing.
