Do-Nothing Congress Takes August Break=> Only 12 Days of Work Scheduled Til End of September
President Donald Trump won the November 8, 2016 election in an electoral landslide.
President Trump captured several states that have not voted Republican in decades.
Riding on his coattails the Republican Party also won back the House of Representatives and won a majority in the US Senate.
In December 2016 Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about how he would help the new president push through his agenda.
The new Republican president wanted to pass tax cuts, repeal Obamacare and build a border wall.
But nothing happened.
On March 8, 2017 Speaker Paul Ryan told Tucker Carlson Congress had a 200 day play to guarantee the president’s agenda would be passed.
Paul Ryan’s 200 day plan will run out on August 7th.
Nothing has happened.
And Congress will be on break when the 200 day promise flies by.
Congress is taking August off work – the entire month.
Congress has 12 days of work scheduled from today until the end of September.
Only 12 days to get tax reform and Obamacare.
