Duh. At that WH Correspondent's Dinner a few years back, Obama publicly humiliated him. Until the day he resigns, is removed from office, or (FSM forbid) finishes his term(s) expect him to try to erase and backtrack every last thing that Obama did, from the Affordable Care Act down to if Obama had the colour of the Oval Office's Post-it notes changed.

He is a sad, selfish excuse for a man, and I'd bet good money that a significant reason behind his Presidential ambition was just to seek petty revenge.

Nah, Obama didn't humiliate him. . . he humiliated himself. Obama just joined in with everybody else laughing at him.

As a member of "the people", can I be the first of many to say that Mulvaney doesn't speak for us. That the White House doesn't speak for us.

I humbly ask any GOPers to think of the LULZ by never passing this.  Just keep it right at under what's needed.  Cmon, you don't like him either.  This could be amazing!

Mulvaney can EABOD.

So when is the Senate going to grow a set of balls and rebuke the President for telling them how to do their jobs? Senators represent the people, not the executive branch.

I'm going to waste a little time and write another letter to "Lil" Marco Rubio and try to inspire him to stop being such a punk-ass biatch.
 
2017-07-30 02:06:39 PM  
So a GOP suicide pact?  Please proceed.

The White House doesn't set the Senate calendar, and this kind of talk is a good way to (further) alienate the majority leader and his team.

Wait, didn't Trump just say that not only should Congress drop healthcare reform and let the ACA collapse under its own weight, but that this had always been his position?

I'm glad I already realized this administration has no grand plan and they were just flailing around randomly, or else I'd have to realize it now.
 
2017-07-30 02:07:48 PM  
Wait, when did we need that budget by?
 
2017-07-30 02:08:16 PM  
Congress:"You are not the boss of me"
 
2017-07-30 02:08:23 PM  
On the plus side, if the budget will require veto proofing, the democrats can force some concessions.

He was talking about running as early as 2000.

the White house does not set Congress's agenda.
Congress needs to grow a spine.

It's comforting to know how hard Trump is working to kill millions of Americans. He really does care!

A'isha P.: Wait, didn't Trump just say that not only should Congress drop healthcare reform and let the ACA collapse under its own weight, but that this had always been his position?


That was his position a few hours ago, and a few days before that, a few weeks before that....interspersed with saying that Congress need to repeal and replace....or repeal and delay....or repeal....

Basically, Trump holds every position simultaneously, that way whatever the outcome is he can say "see!? I was right!".

of course, no intelligent person buys it.

Trump's most positive feature remains his incompetence.

I'm a Canadian whose understanding of the American federal government was gleaned in bits and pieces from (fictional) television, movies and books, and occasionally the news.  And I'm pretty sure that the WH, Congress and Senate are supposed to act pretty much independently and not order each other around.  Something about checks and balances?
 
2017-07-30 02:11:42 PM  
Unless he's going to veto everything that crosses his desk that isn't a health bill then congress should tell him to fark off.

That's what he plans on doing isn't it...

There are seriously people staring into the abyss, knowing that their children will die when Medicaid is cut off, who will rationalize that they have nothing left to lose. This isn't like Obama taking our guns; this is Trump taking our insulin.

// Not me; I get my own insulin the old fashioned way. By sacrificing virgins during full moons and eating their pancreases.

The July Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that most Americans (61 percent) continue to hold unfavorable views of the plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act

You are elected to represent your constituents, not to carry out political retribution.  Do your jobs for Christ's sake.
 
2017-07-30 02:12:20 PM  
In a few years it will be accepted as fact by the GOP that Trump was deep cover liberal sent by the Clintons and/or Soros to destroy the Republican party,

If they do it will be open civil war between Trump and the Republican party.

Trump holds the best positions. In fact, he holds all of them.

Yes. And those who voted for him also wanted revenge for having had to endure a black President. So it all worked out farking swimmingly.

It is undercut by the fact that Trump has been publicly discussing his White House aspirations since the 80s, and, you know, actually ran for President for the first time over a decade before that dinner happened.

What pisses me off is this "it's the will of the people" BS. It's the most unpopular piece of legislation in history. If D2S wants to hoist himself on that petard, go for it!
 
2017-07-30 02:15:48 PM  
The sane part of me wants them to give up. I have to admit there is a bit of crazy inside that would love for them to spend the next two years slowly eating themselves and descending into madness.

Seems like a waste of perfectly good virgins.

Or do you only take the fugly ones?

WH, Congress, and the courts. The House (of Representatives) and the Senate are the two halves of congress.

Damn, except for the farking citizenship thing, you just demonstrated better qualifications to be president than did Herr Drumpf!
