Consider these facts: FDR had the trifecta during his entire term (almost - 16 years). LBJ had the trifecta Posted: Apr 21st, 2017 - 1:38 am In Reply to: Basically it just Obamacare redux with pre-existing coverage and no cap on - payouts and all the other parts of
during his entire term. The last time before George W. that Republicans had the trifecta was during Dwight Eisenhower’s presidency (and even that was only for a brief 2-year period).
Add to that the fact that we haven’t had a true constitutionalist president since Calvin Coolidge. I agree that Republicans have been a do-nothing bunch, but that’s only been a good excuse since 1995. They kept telling us that they can't do anything because they didn't have the Congress. We gave then that. Then the excuse was the Senate, they have that. Now the presidency. They keep making excuses.
I think the majority of the GOP are establishment politicians who WANT big government and like Obamacare or Ryancare (look at the leader, Ryan). Polticians are for the most part the same, they like power. The more dependent people are on govt, they more power they have.
This is why Trump was elected, he's not establishment (whether you like him or not). I hope he's not being too influenced by Ryan.
