President Donald Trump is making Congress look really bad, signing 34 Executive Actions to 4 Pieces of Legislation from Congress.
When the President released his plan for the first 100 days, he wasn’t kidding and Congress is nowhere near able to keep pace with the President. President Trump has signed 34 executive actions that include banning immigration to the US from certain terrorist nations; protecting law enforcement; enforcing regulatory reform; helping the coal industry; beating ISIS; nominating a new US Supreme Court Justice; building a border wall; completing the Keystone pipeline from Canada; and, killing the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
As Americans struggle with financial challenges due to Obamacare and a burdensome Federal tax regime, Congress continues to work with no sense of urgency. After eight years of Obama you would think the Republican Congress would want to do more to overturn Obama’s policies and help the new Republican President with his agenda that won over Americans in spite of the constant attacks from the main stream media.
Yesterday the Speaker was on Tucker Carlson on Fox News and he said that the House had passed about 15 bills that were sent to the Senate. However, the White House shows that only four pieces of legislation have been signed by the President to date.
Hard working Americans have had enough of ‘do nothing’ politicians. It’s time for members of Congress to stand up and replace President Obama’s horrible policies – fast.
