Though the conversation depicted in this cartoon likely didn’t go down exactly this way, it is, nonetheless, typical of the mindset of not only Republicans, but Democrats as well. The merits of a given piece of legislation are immaterial; if it’s being proposed by the opposition party, we’re against it.
How does the process in passing the Republican tax plan and its attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act compare with the actual passage of Obamacare during 2009 to March 2010?
For years, Republicans have slammed the Obamacare legislative process, Congress not reading the legislation, it being passed without the support of the people. Speaker of the House's Nancy Pelosi's statement about passing the bill into law so they know what's in it might go down as the one of the most-quoted political lines for American history.
Trump at new low in poll
President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has declined to the lowest of his presidency. Not only that, nearly half of voters favor Democrats to serve as a check and balance to Trump and Congressional Republicans in the 2018 elections.
That’s the finding of a new NBC/Wall Street Journal .poll conducted by Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates and Republican pollster Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies.
His current job approval rating of 38%, with 58% disapproving, is the lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency.
Every day Donald Trump is President of the United States, the Republican Party lives another lie. Ronald Reagan would never belong to the party of Trump. Neither would Eisenhower, nor any other Republican President from the greatest to the most mediocre. Trump’s brand of Republicanism isn’t just unprecedented; it’s aberrant and dangerous.
