There appears to be a war between two factions I support.
This morning, President Trump posted a tweet critical of the House Freedom Caucus:
The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 30, 2017
Breitbart posted an article about it this afternoon, quoting my Congressman, Dave Brat, a member of the caucus.
“I don’t know who has his ear,” said Brat, who is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and was part of the HFC team negotiating with the White House and the House Republican leadership to amend the Ryancare bill.
“I don’t think he is hearing that we are trying to serve him a victory–right?–Right now, this bill is at 17 percent in the polls, and that’s not a winner.”
The RyanCare bill sucked. Not as bad as the Unafforable Care Act (Obamessiah Care), but not much better. Would you rather pay $10,000 in taxes, or $9500? It still sucks.
I had Rob Andrews as a Congressman when I lived in the People’s Republic of New Jersey. Dave Brat is refreshing. This is my first real disappointment with President Trump. I don’t expect the man to be perfect, obviously. I hope he’s playing a long game, but I’m with Dave Brat and the House Freedom Caucus on this one.
One last comment: do liberals have no memory? When President Trump repealed The Obamessiah’s EPA regulations, they act like we’re all going to die. Were we all choking on our atmosphere 8 years ago? No, but it was a little easier to start a small business, cars were cheaper, and we could buy mid-sized and small trucks, and diesel Volkswagens. Most of those are gone.
Was everybody freaking stupid before the Department of Education came into being during the Carter administration? Oh, NOBODY ever had an EDUCATION before that?
Liberals have no historical memory.
