US senate elections: Why should we care?

All the attention on Sky News about the US vote to day
On BBC news CH4 News and to a lesser extent RTE News (not 24 has less time to fill) but I am lost on why it matters to us.
These are for the elections for their version of TDs what difference does it make to use who controls congress

I mean I personally would like to see the US introduce a public health service (and ireland for that matter) but in the end it doesn't effect me
The only plus side of it I can see is laughing at red-necks calling Obama a commie

but why does it matter to me
