Trump is doing the best he can, but under out system of government, no man, even Trump, can do it all by himself. That has never been more apparent than last week when Congress passed a whopping spending bill that has a lot of Conservatives, especially those in the Freedom Caucus, unhappy.
So the message here is that if you want to advance the Trump agenda, you’ve got to drain the swamp. And it’s not going to be easy because it’s deeper than we all thought.
Washington Examiner has these sentiments by Mark Meadows:
The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus says a spending deal passed last week by Congress shows “the swamp is obviously deeper” now, despite President Trump’s campaign promise to “drain the swamp.”
… Meadows said Trump “was given a binary choice: either you support the military and support this particular budget, or you don’t. And I can tell you that was not the choice a lot of us on Capitol Hill felt was before us.”
Instead, Meadows said, members of his fiscally conservative caucus felt the true choice “was either supporting the military or continuing what I would say [are] the traditions of the Senate.”
… “Well, the swamp is obviously deeper,” he said. “When you look at $300 billion over a 10-year period it makes even a drunken sailor blush. And the problem with that is the drunken sailor actually spent his own money. We have the government spending yours.”
The 2018 midterms are just around the corner. People have choices. If you want to stop the swamp creatures, it’s up to you to vote them out.
