The following is my quick response to a Facebook Post promoting a recently released video pushed by Donald Trump to justify his presidency that the media is the enemy of the people.
Will the Obamacare replacement plans survive? Should they?
Will Republicans and Democrats ever stop the hostilities? Should they?
Is Donald Trump helping or hurting the Republican Party? How have things changed in Congress and in the Louisiana legislature over the years?
To Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ invitation to share in blame for his tax-and-spend agenda, Louisiana’s legislative Republicans should demur.
Edwards recently announced that he might forgo a special session of the Legislature under certain conditions. An additional meeting outside of the 2018 regular session prior to the end of the fiscal year is widely anticipated to address the disappearance of temporary taxes by then, at current spending levels leaving a gap of about $1.2 billion.

For generations, Americans have peacefully disagreed amongst themselves about the direction of the country. At times, fights have escalated over some of those disagreements. Thankfully though, our commonalities with our fellow countrymen have usually overruled many of our differences, bringing us back together, in the end, to rally around the greater good of our country.

The Senate’s repeal of Obamacare, crafted in secret without public input by 11 senators, is in trouble. Five senators are now saying they cannot support the legislation.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can afford to lose only two GOP members and still prevail. The five are U.S. Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Dean Heller of Nevada.
