well, personally, I'll be very sad if/when they pass repealing ACA, I already am sad that they're deregulating environmental issues, civil rights issues, the stupid ass border wall, the nasty Muslim immigrant ban ... yes, if he actually were able to pass his 'wants' I'd be sad.

6. ‘Full repeal of Obamacare’ and replace it with a market-based alternative

7. Renegotiate the Iran deal

9. Cut taxes
Under Trump’s proposed tax reforms, everyone would indeed get a cut. (The top 0.1 percent would receive more tax relief than the bottom 60 percent of taxpayers combined.)

Trump’s plan would bloat the federal deficit by at least $10 trillion over the next decade, even if you factor in economic growth. This makes his promise of protecting Social Security harder to keep, given the program is one of the biggest line items in the budget.

On average, experts scored the Trump tax plan’s chances of passing as a D.
10. ‘Bomb’ and/or ‘take the oil’ from ISIS

The scary thing is I believe that you actually believe that.


"removing the things to help people move up"

What the hell does that even mean?

You do understand that if he gets through what the majority of the people that voted for him want you will be very sad.

Congress appropriated 1.6 billion to start building the new and improved wall last week. The wall is going to be built if you like it or not.
