The fear is if democrats takeover, they will pass all their dream bills in time before the midterms in two years. Realistically they probably get 1 or 2 major bills.

So what did Trump do? He got the tax cuts, failed healthcare, and got some judges. What else?

Major difference between the two scenarios. While Republicans held both houses, they always have their defectors. Democrats put party above principle always. If they control the three branches they will pass any and everything any of them want.

On HC, he cut the individual mandate. That was huge because it may spell the end of Obamacare altogether. The scotus will decide.

Correct. Pelosi even steamrolled Massachusetts giving Ted K's seat to Scott Brown an R trying to stop her Obamacare abomination. She broke the law and mis-used reconciliation to pass ACA without calling it a tax, which it ended up being called. She lied to pro-life Democrats that gave support on basis of protections. It will be very karma and proper if the SC throws that law down next month.

But in any case, a GOP tenure never gets that kind of solidarity and lack of defectors, or willingness to punish them. Only in judge appointments do they approach Dem solidarity on ranks---but Dems never have trouble with that either.
