President Donald Trump is growing impatient with Congress’ inability to achieve anything that the American people have demanded.
By electing Trump, America sent a resounding message to our federal government: Business as usual is over. Trump’s election represented a massive shift in We The People. It was a soft revolt against the status quo and the Washington machine’s unfettered ability to churn out political millionaires and billionaires.
And so President Trump took the reins of the beltway machine and attempted to steer the entire monstrosity to the right; the directions that American voters demanded. Unfortunately, he was opposed every step of the way by a “resistance” movement that was originally purely liberal. Now, after Congress’ massive failure on healthcare reform, that “resistance” has more than a few conservative cohorts, prompting a direct and damning message from the President.
“In the aftermath of the Senate’s failed ObamaCare votes, President Trump on Saturday urged leaders of the GOP-controlled chamber to change the rules to a simple 51-vote majority to pass legislation, saying they are ‘looking like fools’ and calling the 60-vote requirement a ‘joke.’
“The Senate this week tried and failed on several measures to pass legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare, dealing Trump a major loss in his efforts to end the 2010 health care law.

“’Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW!,’ Trump said in one of his five tweets Saturday morning on the issue. ‘It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!’”
Trump’s recommendation regarding senate rules will likely draw ugly comparisons in liberal circles, as they continue their dictatorial diatribes surrounding The Donald.
While the left continues to divide the country down party lines in an attempt to install their New Fascist regime, Washington’s ruling class has done some dividing of their own, ignoring the pleas of We The People to repeal and replace the doomed Obamacare system that Congress themselves are not privy to. This wholesale ignorance of the plight of their constituents will likely come back to the haunt the elected elite in 2018.
