That says the republicans are sabotaging him, but from what I have seen it is Trump sabotaging himself. There are so many things he does that burns bridges before they are even completely built. If he just had someone oversee his twiiter it would do a world of good for him.

I kind of liked Trump for a number of reasons. One is that unlike the ideologues on both sides Trump could pivot to get the job done. I didn't like the Republican health care plan and I'm happy it didn't get through the House. I wish that Trump would get the moderates on both sides together and find a decent health care plan without egos or idealism getting in the way. Of course that will never happen. Too many on both sides making money, making news and not enough reason. This fractured heathcare and our political system will continue its death spiral into the dirt.


I think it's because we focus on the wrong thing when it comes to health care. There needs to be transparency in pricing and I should be able to see what a 15 minute doctors appointment is going to cost before I make it, not to mention at any office. If most Americans could see the absurd rates charged, I think there would be quick changes.

I got news for you ... Joe Manchin aside, the Democrats pretty much chased out all their moderates long ago.

congress has too much power and presidents are too limited to make any great long lasting changes to the system, this constant change of leadership is making our country unstable and preventing progress, because of this instability congress has become stagnant and filled with conflict, corruption has infected the system and we have no stable strong leader who can ever stand up to it.

congress will be known as the reason our country collapsed if we don't change things and add limits to it, this political game playing between parties is eroding our country by promoting corruption and one-upmanship.

remove presidential term limits
ban lobbying
implement congressional term limits
ban campaign donations
ban private sponsored political advertising campaigns
ban political parties
ban people with significant corporate connections from participation in politics
purge of corrupt politicians
implement permanent exile from politics for participation in acts of corruption and criminal behavior.

corporations are the real enemy of america and congress is colluding with them to bypass the will of the people, they together are stagnating america and preventing change for the betterment of the people.


While I agree with most of this, NO WAY do we do away with Presidential term limits...

It was cool when Obama was getting the obstruction treatment from Congress, but guess what? Trump is having the same problems, according to Matt Drudge.


Matt Drudge said he thinks the Trump administration is in a crisis "on many fronts" in its early days, partly due to deliberate obstruction from the Republican-controlled Congress.
"I suspect there is a sabotage," he said on conservative commentator Michael Savage's radio show on Friday. “Do you know Obama had the stimulus package on his desk before Inauguration Day? What did this Congress give this great man? Nothing.”


Drudge feels that the health care re-reform failed because of congress. So now how fun is the grab assery in our legislative branch of govt when it is "our guy" getting the treatment?


But on the radio show, Drudge appeared to pin most of the blame for the failure of the American Health Care Act on Congress, noting that even if the bill had passed through the House, it would likely have been obstructed in the Senate.

"Donald Trump has been dealt a very bad hand here. Does the audience understand that? He has a bad hand and that’s just the way it is," he said.
www.businessinsider.com...

Do an interview with Oprah? Drudge thinks it would be a good idea to offer an "olive branch" to her liberal viewers. He could be right.


He also suggested Trump do an interview with Oprah Winfrey, extending an olive branch to her liberal viewers without changing his politics.

"Why not do a little bit more to reach out to the other half?" he said


I like Drudge...he seems pretty damn intelligent and a critical thinker.

He has a huge advantage in his theories too...his sites algorithm for news gives him the ability to discern and review facts quickly.

Congress needs to have term limits...i truly wish this would be enacted in the next 8 years. The highest position in our country can only serve 8 years, yet everyone under POTUS can serve a lifetime....so who has the power again?

Agreed, turn over in power makes those who are "turned out" less powerful and less influential (INFLUENCED).

The only way Congress will ever have term limits is if it is imposed through a convention of the states. Do you honestly think congress will actually introduce a bill limiting its own power?

Did he give a damn when Republicans waged outright warfare against Obama for 8 years, culminating in unbelievable dereliction of duty and rejecting the constitution when they refused to give his lawful supreme court pick a hearing??

This attitude is one reason for the accelerating downward spiral of the effectiveness of our political system over the last 15-20 years. D's get the R's and the R's payback the D's. Then repeat cycle. Nothing good comes of it and we continue the downward spiral.

How nice of you to chastise this persons reply, but the OP starts of by saying how "cool" it was when all that obstruction was going to Obama. Why not chastise him for the same thing? Seems YOU might be part of the problem also.

Politicians know the rules and how to be politicians.

Trump is such an amateur, they want nothing to do with him - - if they don't have to.

Trump is as big of a threat to the Republican establishment as he is Democrats.

While Trump may be a Republican, he really is a third party President. The RINOs would have been perfectly happy with Hillary in office.

Many of Trumps policies go completely against the establishment whixh supports open bordersn globalism, war mongering, etc.

This...this is why people either love or hate him. He was a Democrat by his own admission. I think he spans both parties and that scares people. He truly doesn't have a party he is indebted to. Sure he was the Republican nominee, but I figure he could have run for whatever party and still won.

I think there are a lot more of us out there that span the 2 major parties than others realize, and that scares the 2 major parties. I would bet that after Trump, whether 4 or 8 years, a third party candidate will become POTUS....

You got it. The Repubs got nothin'. Trump is just a chump for Congress-they could care less that the American people are suffering after 8 years of Obama.

Hopefully, Trump's treatment by our barbaric-and insular- Congress will finally be exposed for what they are and eventually kick the bums out. This, I fear, will take generations, if ever.

Unfortunately-there continues to exist the Bilderberg group et al who will find new ways to control us all.

At least Drudge seems fearless.

You are 100% correct. He makes an awful lot of people very nervous.

Congress is going to do their best for the string pullers.

Health care may not have failed if they had given it more than ten minutes thought.
It wasn't what trump promised or even a reflection of it.
His plan will reduce costs, improve coverage and quality of care and cover everybody.
Turns out that's complicated. Who knew?

It is political, that makes it complicated. It isn't like there are not plenty of different forms we can see from around the world.

Our system is 3X more expensive than any other countries, and comes in over 30th when it comes to patient medical outcomes.

So we pay 3x as much and get #30 in outcomes. Our system is TERRIBLE.
