Why 'Voters Are In Open Rebellion'
Blog Author's Comments -- Republican Majority Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell passed a spending and tax bill supported by more Democrats than Republicans. Because the bill contained almost everything the Democrats wanted.
The voters gave the Republicans large majorities in both the House and Senate so they could push-back against progressive big government spending. What did the Republican leadership do with the majority? Republicans constructed big spending on behalf of the Democrats and voted with them to end up with the same result as if the Democrats were in control.
I don't remember a single Republican campaign in 2010 or 2014 which said, 'Elect me, because we're not going to be able to do anything.' I remember campaigns filled with lofty objectives and goals and promises that were rooted in stopping the Democrat agenda. The Democrats just got more of what they wanted in one budget than they ever got with Pelosi and Reid.
"The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?
"The only special interest not being served by our government is the American people. It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt. To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable. Together, we will Make America Great Again." - Donald J. Trump
