And it’s pretty good advice. Get it together! Obstruction doesn’t work! Don’t you wonder how the Democrats, who promoted these special elections as a bell-weather for 2018 are going to climb out of the abyss? Will they be smart enough to leave behind the socialist slide?
Politico had this:
The day after Republican Karen Handel won the heated Georgia special election, President Donald Trump offered some advice to Democrats, recommending that they work to cut deals with Republicans on some of his top policy goals and suggesting that such a maneuver would ultimately be to their benefit.
“Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on healthcare, tax cuts, security. Obstruction doesn’t work!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.
Can you see Nancy Pelosi swallowing her pride to work with Republicans? Nah… it’ll never happen.
But while the president could certainly benefit from Democratic votes to pass some of his preferred legislation, he does not need them. Republicans are the majority party in both houses of Congress and can pass some legislation, including a repeal-and-replace bill expected to be unveiled Thursday, through the Senate with a simple majority that will not require a single Democratic vote.
