Congress Stalls Trump Agenda… Month Two… Just As… RNC Sets Record With $20 Million January

On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on.
This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program.

Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama at the same point in his presidency as President Donald Trump, it shows that Republicans are not doing their job.

Jonathan Weisman, deputy Washington editor at The New York Times, encapsulated Republicans’ lack of accomplishment in one tweet.

As President Donald Trump begins his second month in office, his team is trying to move past the crush of controversies that overtook his first month and make progress on health care and tax overhauls long sought by Republicans.

Both issues thrust Trump, a real estate executive who has never held elected office, into the unfamiliar world of legislating. The president has thus far relied exclusively on executive powers to muscle through policy priorities and has offered few details about what he’ll require in any final legislative packages, like how the proposals should be paid for. The White House also sent conflicting signals about whether the president will send Congress his own legislative blueprints or let lawmakers drive the process.

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus told The Associated Press that he expects a health care plan to emerge in “the first few days of March.” Pressed on whether the plan would be coming from the White House, Priebus said, “We don’t work in a vacuum.”–politics.html
The Republican National Committee filed a record setting $19.8 million January FEC report on Monday, The Daily Caller has learned. The $19.8 million makes January the best post-election fundraising month in RNC history.

  1. IWB, don’t mistake incompetence with stone cold corruption and treason. RINOs need to be taken out in a 1 for 1 with the democrats in the government.
    For every schumer there’s a ryan, ryan’s election fraud to hold his seat was EPIC. Hence, why he’s a leader about “there’s no election fraud or vote rigging or voter fraud, der.”
    Trump is making a mistake to have fired Flynn to keep butt boy Pence happy. Pedos go, or Trump goes. Ask JFK, ask Lincoln…oh, you can’t ask either, they were assassinated.

  2. They received the $$$ because of him, but don’t respect his agenda enough to support it! Problem. But remember, there are many Republicans who are under the thumb of lobbyist and also receive Soros funds! It’s a quagmire! All politicians want to do is get re elected…it’s our job to stop it! Obama friendly Paul Ryan should have never become Speaker!
