This Do-Nothing Congress Is A Travesty
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 4/21/2017 6:45:54 AM

Agenda: Shortly after Donald Trump won the election, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Republicans had to "go big, go bold, and do things." So far, the GOP has not delivered. "They have the House, they have the Senate, they have the presidency — and nothing´s happening," lamented PJ Media co-founder Roger Simon earlier this week. "Nothing, that is, that Donald Trump doesn´t do by himself. ... The Republicans in the legislature are a disgrace." Congress did pass, and Trump signed, 13 bills to undo last-minute Obama administration regulations. And the Senate approved Trump´s Supreme Court pick. But what about actually advancing

I think to RINO agrnda is to none of Trump´s agenda. The Uniparty is happy with Washington as it is. Just increase the debt limit, everyone gets funded with a CR, and even though this year has had historic tax receipts, they still spent close to a Trillion more than revenue.

Everyone in DC gets what they want. Screw Trump and his flyovers. Next year if RINOs are a minority in House and/or Senate, same results for DC as this year. Happy Happy Happy.

It´s been a travesty since 2008 where the democrats rubber-stamped every stupid idea to emerge from Obama´s coconut and the RINOs sat idly by and watched the carnage from their safe leather seats, the ones who bothered to show up for work. What Congress didn´t do, the LGBTQ Supreme Court did. The work isn´t over yet folks.

Of course it is a Travesty. The GOPe know what the citizens think of their non-action, yet it changes nothing. They are so morally bankrupt that all the are concerned about is the money that flows from the groups that own them, and pay for their re-election.

Paul Ryan has got to be aware of the negative opinion of millions of Americans,yet it impacts him not in the least. As long as the Chamber of Commerce, and K-Street Lobbying Groups fill his wallet he is content to ignore the needs and wishes of the citizenry. It really is criminal.

Equally frustrating is the Do-Nothing FBI when it comes to the Obama / Clinton scandals. Obama´s Fast & Furious illegal gun running? The Pigford black farmers scandal? IRS Tea Party scandal? The domestic spying scandal? Poof! Nothing to see there.

Hillary´s email scandal? Her Foundation´s bribe solicitation scandal? The Russian uranium scandal? Also poof! Not reassuring for swamp draining that FBI Director Comey has 3 more years as head of the Bureau.

I was wondering this in the last few days....The media has been obsessed with what Trump has or has not accomplished in the first 100 days, but what has the congress done in that same period? Not much at all apparently.

The media created the ´´100 Day´´ milestone, based on supposed public for the new guy. Now, if all campaign promises are not completed in that amount of time, the media uses it to pronounce failure of an administration (as long as it is a Republican administration).

The sooner, the better for some issues, but I am more concerned with what is accomplished in the first term of the administration. By then, the first 100 days will be long forgotten.

I agree with all but the last sentence in the article. Ryan has already shown that he is either incompetent or purposefully sabotaging the President´s agenda. It hardly matters which. He needs to go now!

I agree 100%. The Uni-Party is in full action mode. Words in media mean nothing anymore. It´s still all about the Agenda!

I recd a letter just yesterday from the RNC begging more money. I was a life long Pubbie and damn proud of it. When the Republicans allowed Loretta Lynch to become AG, I resigned. That ripped the blanket for me. The Republicans showed their true colors on that one. We desperately need a new party.

No more money to the Republicans until I see absolute proof they have stopped being idiots!

Republicans are proud and happy to be in bipartisan control of our post Constitutional country. Personal political power has transcended individual liberty and freedom. To see McConnell and Ryan sitting on each side of Trump with big Cheshire Cat grins and ear to ear smiles on their faces is beyond disgusting. They are pushing the ultimate sales pitch on Trump to lock in full government control over healthcare and big government spending and crony capitalism. Vampires in charge of the blood bank.

The Republicrats were caught by surprise by Trump´s victory. They had no plans because they didn´t need any except to "resist" under Hillary. That didn´t stop them from claiming to have various plans ready to go.

The other problem is that the Republicrats are suffering a deep case of cognitive dissonance. They are undoubtedly under the impression that Trump is unpopular and going to fail - so they need to keep distance so as not to be tarred with "disaster" themselves.

Obamacare is a classic - the GOP election hook was "repeal" (and that includes Trump), but the operative foolishness is to "replace", but retaining two of the most "popular" expensive/onerous bits: Pre-existing coverage, and "kids" up to 26.

The Feds ought to get OUT of meddling in the cost of medical services. If anything, expand medical schools to "flood" the US with American doctors, and make legit medical services tax deductible from dollar one - no special accounts or other tax dodge programs are necessary. But, then that´s taking a risk...and with Trump, that may not be wise.

Per 8, I never write my congresscritters, because as a boy I read the story of King Canute. Also, our Speakster of the House and Senate Leader spent so much time as obama´s palace eunuchs, that now, when they are in control, they lack the "wherewithal" to get things done. That, and they are self-serving, malicious, tiny little weasels.

If WTP could put Pres. Trump in office against all odds, we CAN change our Senators and Representatives. They are there because we reelect them term after term! It will take a lot of time to pass term limits amendment, but reelections come around regularly. Get involved, work the party locally and state, let´s get new, honest, patriotic men and women in those abused seats.

IF I were Speaker and I had these renegades trashing everything I´d delete their positions on every committee, they would be twiddling their thumbs or supporting real reform!

It´s summer 2017 and the Arctic was supposed to be ice-free, hurricanes were going to be more frequent and more deadly, and sea levels should be rising alarmingly. Al Gore swore in his 2006 science fiction movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," that within a decade there would be a "true planetary emergency." "Unless we act boldly and quickly to deal with the underlying causes of global warming, our world will undergo a string of terrible catastrophes," said Gore in the movie´s introduction. The grand storyteller also predicted in 2011 that "there will be no more snows" on Mt. Kilimanjaro "within the decade." Four years

CBO Gets ObamaCare Reform
Estimates Wrong — Again
Investor´s Business Daily, by Diana Furchtgott-Roth    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 6/27/2017 8:15:16 AM     Post Reply
On Monday the Congressional Budget Office released its cost estimate of the Republican Senate Better Care Reconciliation Act. CBO calculated that the proposed bill would reduce the deficit by $321 billion over the next decade. That is welcome news. Less welcome, however, was CBO´s conclusion that the Senate bill would result in an additional 15 million uninsured in 2018 due to a lack of penalties. By 2026, CBO reports 22 million more Americans would be uninsured, primarily due to lower Medicaid coverage. No matter that the number of Americans on the Obamacare exchanges is shrinking due to higher prices and

How Seattle´s Minimum-Wage Disaster
Hurts Those It´s Meant To Help

Minimum Wage: When Seattle embarked on its progressive path to force up the minimum wage in the city, the results were predictable: Those it was intended to help would be hurt the most. Will policy-makers never learn? It´s both sad and tragic, but even policies passed with the best of intentions can hurt those they´re intended to help. So it is with Seattle´s minimum wage. Last August, we asked: "What will happen when Seattle raises its minimum to $15 an hour in 2017? It could get ugly." Unfortunately, we were right. Economists at the University of Washington looked at the recent increases in

Senate Republicans released a revised version of their ObamaCare repeal bill on Monday, adding in a provision designed to prevent people from gaming the insurance system. That, of course, quickly drew attacks from Democrats who seem to have forgotten what ObamaCare does. After having conceded to Democrats that the federal government should ban insurance denials based on pre-existing conditions, the GOP replacement bill needed some mechanism to prevent people from simply waiting until after they get sick to buy insurance. The House bill included a 30% premium penalty for those who went more than a few months without coverage in

Scandals: The past few days have seen several interesting developments on the supposed Trump/Russia scandal. But instead of causing further damage to President Trump, they´re making the entire story look like a multilayered smear campaign by Trump´s enemies. Over the weekend, the New York Post reported that the firm behind the infamous Trump dossier — Fusion GPS — has been stonewalling the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been trying to get information on who paid the firm to produce it and how it was used by government officials. It has been publicly known since at least early January that Fusion GPS was

Way to go, minimum-wage advocates!

Entitlements: Shreds. Guts. Slashes. Eviscerates. Imperils. Look at any story about the Senate health bill, and you´ll see words like those describe its supposed cuts to Medicaid. What if we told you there are no such cuts? First, the Senate bill doesn´t change Medicaid at all for three years. That means spending on the program will continue to grow, just as it is slated to now — at an annual 5% clip — until 2021. What does that mean in dollar terms? Under the Senate´s "shredding" reform, Medicaid´s budget in 2021 will be $85 billion bigger than it is this year, and

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News. Obama will also speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1. Obama moved to Indonesia in 1967 at age 6
