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.

What makes you say that?
Because that's what happened.
The wealthy funded the GOP, they got Reagan in, and rejiggered the tax code so that the wealth shifted from the middle class to the top 0.1%.
And ever since the GOP is about removing the things that government does to help people move up, and shifting the tax burden to the middle class.

Thanks.

1. ‘Build a wall’ — and make Mexico pay for it :lol:

2. Temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States :lol:

3. ‘Bring manufacturing (jobs) back’ :lol:

4. Impose tariffs on goods made in China and Mexico :lol:

5. Renegotiate or withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership :lol:

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

7. Renegotiate the Iran deal :lol:

9. Cut taxes :lol:

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 :lol:

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?

What is the obsession w/ "major legislation"?

What is it you guys think needs to happen?

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

Good job pumpkin.

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.
