For David Waldman, a regular guy with regular hands, all of this is too much to handle alone. Lucky for him, and us, Greg Dworkin, Armando and Joan McCarter join in today!
The “Why doesn’t somebody just say...” contingent sticks with Trump as that is pretty much Donald’s entire governing/management process. Greg points out that particular cohort isn’t growing and is becoming less relevant anymore.
Trump fixed Trumpcare, and the Freedom Caucus is now behind it 100%, except for the Obamacare parts they are keeping for themselves. Anyhow, repealing Obamacare could violate international law. It pays to read the fine print. Insurers aren't falling for Trump's sabotage efforts, yet. Democrats are feeling a renewed vigor over Obamacare, as Trumpcare tanks.
Trump fixes taxes the way he always has, by not paying them. Like climate change, negative action now will reap even more negative consequences later. Trump's Obamacare sabotage threat could cost the government $2.3 billion next year. Republicans move forward with a spending bill that excludes Trump's new border wall funding. Trump has to have that wall now, although later will do.
Trump decides to hop on the worldwide bigotry bandwagon, but Armando and federal judges in Hawaii, Maryland, and California do not see this as a difficult decision. A judge sees the Sanctuary Cities Order as "clearly unconstitutional", Trump never liked the constitution anyhow. Soon he will hate conservative judges. Why doesn’t somebody just say...
