So you thought gridlock was finally a thing of the past with a GOP majority sending lots of bills to a Republican Oval Office? Nope. Gridlock never ended. It’s going to get worse. Progress on Capitol Hill is stalling. Congress is hopeless and lawmakers know it. They will either distance themselves from the investigation they started or take credit for going after the president.
You got suckered. The two party system failed you. It turned the first 100 days of Donald Trump into a partisan nightmare that ended with the GOP’s surrender to Democrats. You lost because our two party system provides for lawmakers and their politics, not you and your family.
Two party system farce fails you
There is a very good reason they call it a system.
The RNC Make America Great Again survey showed up in my mailbox one day after the Republican Party repealed its self-proclaimed mission to replace Obamacare. The appeal to greatness was printed in big, bold letters. The survey asked about optimism. It talked about being proud. The RNC asked for a donation to help get the job done.
With the nation at their mercy Republicans are about to blow the mission they staked their reputation to the instant Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act. We’ve heard the buzzwords: repeal, replace, dismantle. We might as well add destroy. The press isn’t great, but how could it be? Republicans will be lucky to make this sale to themselves not because their ideas are bad, but because their campaign to make this overhaul palatable is all wrong.
