Polls/Petitions The Latest
Trump gives Congress taste of their own medicine, now they’re regretting their colossal failure
By PJ Editor|July 31, 2017

Donald Trump—and the American people—gave Congress chance after chance to act like grown-ups and get their job done.

After the failure of Obamacare reform in any way, shape or form, Trump seemed powerless to give Americans affordable quality healthcare.

But one of the most frustrating parts of this story is how Congress—Democrats and Republicans—have exempted themselves from the law they are forcing Americans to live with.

President Trump looks to fix that once and for all, and maybe it will start a fire under them to get back to work.

From IJR:

President Donald Trump on Saturday threatened to end “bailouts” for members of Congress and insurance companies if lawmakers don’t pass a new health care bill in the near future.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Trump’s warning is a “clear threat” to take away health care from members of Congress and their staff.

Ironically, the Democrat has it right—if Congress cannot get its act together, it should live in the same hell they have created for all of us.

Whether or not he has the ability to pull this off under his own power, or if he is just trying to get them back to work on a solution, Americans should be able to agree on this point: Congress should not get special exemptions from their rules.

Unfortunately we have discovered through this process that Republicans are no different than Democrats: they cannot come up with consensus reforms that will work for America.  Hopefully Trump can continue draining the swamp and start providing substantive policy ideas that a majority of Congress—and Americans—can get behind.

After the Republican establishment was exposed as part of the Washington cartel that needed to be drained, he has been honored to participate in the national conversation, seeing the Tea Party movement and the recent populist rise shake up Washington for the better. He hopes too see America return to limited government and the decent, inspired founding principles that have made it the greatest nation in the history of mankind.
