we are sending billions of dollars over to Puerto Rico, the number game "billions and trillions" are just so easy to count now days...
I believe Puerto Rico should start helping us pay off the federal reserve. right now residents who are government employees, and those with income sources outside of the territory, pay federal income tax,most bona fide residents of the island are not required to file federal income tax returns.

Hence why I am stating that the island for once and all needs to decide if it wants to be a state or on its own. The days of owning territory is over, that part should be put to rest. If those territories want to be a part of the US, then by all means, make them states, let them be taxed, have the full rights as equal citizens of the USA, or be on their own.

Trump got rolled in his first budget negotiation, it is going to take a lot more than getting the right number of “red” or “blue” politicians to Washington.

Throughout the campaign, Donald Trump spoke boldly about “draining the swamp”, but this spending deal very much reflects the swamp’s priorities.

If there ever was going to be a border wall, it was going to happen now.

Trumpcare is going to end up looking very much like Obamacare.

We should not expect things to move in a positive direction in D.C. until the values of those representing us change, they risk manage the entire process while the Financial System continues on life-support.
All they do is throw huge lifelines to the banking elite and to themselves.

Trump is far more dangerous than a politician. He is not in it for the country, but for himself. That much is true and evident. At least with a politician, we know they are going to be partially in it for themselves, only part of the time, but this president is only in it for himself and only himself.
He is not draining the swamp, he is seeking people who will only agree with him all of the time and his ideas, even if it would lead to the downfall of the country and for patsies to take the blame when things go wrong. And any who dare to speak ill of him, using their rights, will often be attacked by him and those who support him.
His administration is in chaos, with people leaving in far greater numbers than before, something unheard of, and it shows instability in that branch of the government.

The Boarder wall, it is not to protect the people, but to play off of their fears. A few people cause problems, and yet while stating that, ignoring those who are citizens who are doing the exact same thing. That is not about justice but fear. Don’t trust anyone who looks different, that is the message and it is the wrong message for the country.

With the entire health care debate, with a bit of research, the solution was simple. But the entire Obamacare and Trumpcare stuff, was never to help all of the people, it was to help the insurance companies. That is all it was for. The solution was far more simple and would have not only lowered costs of health care but would have ultimately forced an entire industry to go back what it was there for, to help and cure, not just maintain.

No, we should not expect things to move in a positive direction, rather if anything this is exposing the problems and cracks in the government, in ways that no one was wanting and will force a change. And like all problems the solutions will hurt more, but have far better outcomes for the country in the long run, which is what should be the focus.
