Like the big bully he is, he goes after Lisa Murkowski for voting nay on the motion to begin debate on repealing Obamacare. Every senator needs respect, regardless of his or her opinion on any specific issue. Rather than shaming someone on twitter, Trump should be trying his best reach out to all senators, Democrats, Republicans, independents, to craft something that works for as many people as possible. No senator should feel pressured by anyone to carry out anyone's agenda. Every senator should be free to vote their conscience without facing any shaming from anyone.

How about the pressure to carry out their constituents desires and voting in accordance?

Most senators don't vote on what they think it's right or wrong, morally out even for the country.
They vote on what they think will get them re elected.

Forbid they had to go out and get real jobs- they've screwed up the country to the point where they don't want to live with the rest of us.

I was thinking the same thing , they should be expected to try to do what is best for the people who they represent and put them in office , instead of making promises that are made to just get votes and then do as they wish.
Representives need to check in with their constituents and ask what they want more often .
Instead of spending so much time worring about winning the next election, if they did what they say they would they wouldn't have to ever worry about being reelected.

"For the Republic for which it stands"? No? We are a democracy? Well then, Trump got elected "by the people" to be the bare knuckle brawler and do what the people want for once. You know, the democratic majority by which would be kings maliciously rule nations, except it backfired on them.

Trump is doing "exactly" what I want him to do. Time to quit playing politics.

So bully that female obstructionist Mr. Trump. Beat her down. Call every one of them out. The nation is tired to death of being bullied by social justice thugs and political correctness, which is nothing but nasty lies about who we are.

So let the Republican Republic beat the snot out of the entrapment socialists of our decade. Beat them down already. We have let them show their true colors long enough.

Most congressmen and senators vote as directed by their constituents 95% of the time, and they make their money on the other 5%.

Well now, don't hold back. You get a little more worked up and you can go beat your dog or give yourself a heart attack. The healthcare you so badly want all of us to have might just fail you up there in the cold north. Then you'll be one more angst Popsicle. Shame that.

Your attack aside I think the VAST majority of the population are being hurt by the ACA. Less care and much much steeper costs. It is what I've seen in nearly every single case. It's a mess. No good will come of it. Just one more financial burden on the backs of the people. I'm sure Alaska will come out fine though.

Worshiper of Trump? In your mind that would be the truth. In my mind however I just want people to have enough consciousness to shake off those parasites. The ones that have steered the people's subconscious effortlessly. And the path to that is not a straight line.

That is a wise choice. They certainly don't respect us. They feed us the truths they want us to have and think we will forever trust somebody to solve our problems and take care of us. It's instinctive in humanity. How long will we twist in the wind until the people take responsibility for their nation?

Very likely, too long.

Yesterday, Senator Murkowski's response to Trump's twitter attack

Murkowski dismissed the president’s attacks in an interview with MSNBC.

"We're here to govern. We're here to legislate,” she said. “We're here to represent the people who sent us here. And so every day shouldn't be about campaigning. Every day shouldn't be about winning elections. How about just doing a little bit of governing around here? That's what I'm here for."


Trump's response today

The Trump administration threatened to block federal aid to Alaska in an effort to bully one of the Republican senators opposed to the current Senate GOP push to roll back the Affordable Care Act, according to a report by the Alaska Dispatch News.

The news site reports that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke on Wednesday called Alaska Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan with a warning that Murkowski’s vote “had put Alaska's future with the administration in jeopardy.”

Source: Los Angeles Times - Trump administration threatens to retaliate against Alaska for GOP senator's Obamacare repeal vote, news site reports.

Which is the same old song and dance Alaskans have always put up with. Doesn't matter who's in the White House.

Then the politician(s) fly up here. Get the typical Alaska song and dance (see Obama dancing vid), and the whole thing sinks back into The Swamp.

I don't think Politicos really grasp how large, while at the same time, how small, the state of Alaska is. Saying stuff like, "Cut military funding to Alaska", may seem like a budget decision but in the end it is a wrong one. So is threatening a state for a Senator doing their job.

From the people I know living up there it sounds like there was a pretty strong grassroots effort to get Murkowski to vote against repeal and replace. As such, her actions fall in line with the desires of her constituents. At least those that cared enough to contact her office.

So with this action Trump is trying to crush the will of the People. I eagerly anticipate the day when Trump cries about how Alaska shouldn't have as many Senators because of their population.

It's tough to be left out in the cold. Alaska is the red headed stepchild of the states though. Fear not however, Sara Palin has your western shore covered, hunkered down with a 22 long rifle in case the Ruskies invade Alaska in a pair of rusted out john boats. Stereotypes... Yuk yuk yuk...

If she didn't want to put her state in the path of a juggernaut she would have towed the party line. So by playing her political trump card she's putting her own people's welfare at stake.

But don't get yourself worked up. Pain is coming to every state. We don't make anything but war anymore. The debt will grow, the politicians will lie, and the people will go down the tubes while waiting for some political savior. Deciding to fend their demise off,, too late, too late...

In the meantime very wealthy people will gorge themselves on what is left of American wealth, for they see a famine coming and they will get theirs while the getting is good.
