"Maybe you should start thinking about going back to a form of earmarks," Trump said, laying out a familiar — but hotly contested — argument that when earmarks were in fashion, Washington worked better. "Maybe that brings people together. In our system right now, the way it is set up, will never bring people together."

It's an absolute disgrace, an affront to sanity, and a verification that it's dangerous to trust ANYONE in Washington DC.
This is not what I voted for when Trump was elected. I feel like a cop watching a magician saw a woman in half... she's in two pieces, her screams have stopped, she's gone limp, there's red stuff leaking out of the box, and I got my handcuffs out. Somebody better fix this fast, or I'm going to be looking real damn hard at anyone from my state who voted for it this year, and just as damn hard at Trump two years from now.
Anyone else who is tired of being shafted, I challenge you to do what I am going to do: find out which of your Congressmen voted for this monstrosity, and vote them out at the first opportunity. I don't care if they're Democrat or Republican, and if you do, you're part of the problem... just take what your masters allow you to have and quit complaining.
And I am going to keep mentioning this until people get it: the Democrats in Congress were so upset over the DACA situation, they shut the government down over it when it wasn't even coming up for a vote! But they "got everything they wanted" in a $1.3 TRILLION Omnibus Bill, and yet nowhere in the 2000+ pages does it even mention DACA. I guess that proves they do not want to help DACA recipients, and shut the government down for pure spite and nothing else.
I blame Congress... ALL of Congress... but dammit, Trump, where's that masterful dealing you promised? This ain't it. Shape up or I'll ship you out in 2020.
