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

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 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.

Health Reform: We checked, and we couldn´t find Sen. John McCain telling voters who reelected him in 2016 that he´d repeal ObamaCare, but only if the Senate followed all the proper "procedures." But that´s his excuse now for killing what is likely the last chance to get rid of this law. After signaling that he could support the latest ObamaCare repeal-and-replace effort authored by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, McCain issued a statement saying that "health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate." This is, he says, "the only way we might achieve bipartisan

Climate Change: Global warming is "settled science," we hear all the time. Those who reject that idea are "deniers." But as new evidence trickles out from peer-reviewed science studies, the legs beneath the climate change hypothesis — that the earth was doing just fine until carbon-dioxide spewing human beings came along — is increasingly wobbly. A new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience purports to support action by global governments to reduce carbon dioxide output in order to lower potential global warming over the next 100 years or so. But what it really does is undercut virtually every modern argument

Health Care: Apparently, decisions about how to reform the nation´s $3.2 trillion health care system must now win the approval of a late-night comedian who once hosted "The Man Show," which featured girls in bikinis bouncing on trampolines. Well, if health care reform has to face the "Jimmy Kimmel test" to be morally acceptable, why isn´t he denouncing ObamaCare? For those who don´t know, Kimmel became the reigning expert on health reform because his newborn son was born with a heart defect. All Kimmel had to do was give a tearful monologue that included a plea: "If your baby is going to die and it doesn't

Regulation: It´s no accident that Washington, D.C., has become known as the graveyard of promises. It´s exceedingly rare that a promise made in the nation´s capital is a promise kept. That´s why it´s great to report that President Trump has kept a big one — to cut two regulations for every new one passed. With a month to go in the fiscal year, the American Action Forum (AAF) decided to take a hard look at Trump´s regulation-cutting pledge. Along with cutting regulations, the plan envisioned having a net new cost of regulation of $0 or less. How did Trump do? "While there have been some hiccups,

Monetary Policy: The Fed, after eight years, has finally declared its war against the financial crisis of 2007-08 is over. Like so many other wars in this nation´s history, it should have been over long ago. Now, the "Great Unwinding" begins. On Wednesday the Fed officially began its long, and no doubt eventful, process of unwinding its massive balance sheet, built up in the aftermath of the Great Recession in one of the biggest, and most misbegotten, monetary experiments in economic history, dubbed Quantitative Easing. Beginning next month, the Fed said it will begin trimming the $4.5 trillion balance sheet simply by not reinvesting

Wiretapping: The U.S. government under President Obama wiretapped former Trump campaign Chair Paul Manafort in New York´s Trump Tower under "secret court orders before and after the election," CNN reported, citing "three sources familiar with the investigation." Assuming CNN´s report is true, it means President Trump, who was ridiculed earlier this year for claiming that his iconic building had been wiretapped, has been massively vindicated. But don´t hold your breath waiting for an apology. Just months ago, Trump was called a liar and worse for his tweets alleging that Obama had Trump Tower

Elections: Have you noticed that even the most ardent Trump haters haven´t been pining for a Hillary Clinton presidency? In case anyone had any doubts as to why, her post-loss antics have cleared it up. In a lengthy interview with National Public Radio — one of countless she´s given to promote her 512-page finger-pointing new book — the host asked Clinton if she would "completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election." Her answer: "No, I would not." She lamented that "I just don´t think we have a mechanism" to do so. But then she went on to spin a rather bizarre conspiracy theory that attracted little attention.

Millennials, through no fault of their own, have been hit the hardest over the last decade by the Great Recession, the outrageous price increases of higher education, and failing ObamaCare. Millennials have seen double-digit unemployment and a 700% increase in the cost of education since the 1990s. In today´s lopsided economy, college degree-worthy jobs have disappeared and minimum-wage and part-time employment have become the norm due to the disastrous Affordable Care Act. Millennials are left, on average, with $35,000 of student loan debt. And many are often out of work, or they´re working for the minimum

U.N.: President Trump will present a set of wide-ranging reforms for the United Nations this week that will actually force the dysfunctional organization to begin living up to its lofty ideals. This may be the corrupt, badly disorganized U.N.´s final chance at survival. Trump had harsh things to say about the U.N. during last year´s election. Sadly for the U.N., none of them was fake news or an exaggeration. The U.N. is corrupt. The U.N. is ineffective. The U.N. is wasting billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars.

Health Reform: After nine fruitless months, Republicans have finally come up with an ObamaCare replacement plan that is simple and appealing, and that should easily pass the Senate. Will the GOP blow it again? Put together by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsay Graham, the plan would take the money being spent on ObamaCare´s insurance subsidies and Medicaid expansion, and give it to states in the form of fixed block grants. States would then have wide latitude in how they spend the money — for example, they could use it to set up high-risk pools, reduce out-of-pocket costs, pay providers or

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until
