    I know reality enough to see that Trump is president. Maybe you're insulted by reality not being able to see Trump is president.

    You don't get it. The fact is that most of the GOP agenda is extremely unpopular. Obamacare is more popular than ever. More voters oppose a wall. Even parts of the GOP tax agenda is extremely unpopular.

    What is going on in Washington is not business as usual. Voters do not want Obamacare repealed. The only question is whether the crazies on the right will drive the Republican Party into the ditch.

    No it will not. The Republicans will pick up at best a few seats. Democrats will likely win the Nevada seat and could win the Arizona seat. However the odds are increasing that the House will go to the Democrats. Healthcare will be a huge issue in 2018. Obamacare beat the Republican plans by nearly a 2-1 margin.

    Report: GOP Donors, Frustrated by ‘Do-Nothing Congress,’ Stop Giving Money



    Do you think the president cares? He doesn’t need such stuff and won’t ask for it.

    So, if they have trouble funding their campaigns, does that make them vulnerable to their DemocRAT challengers? How about members of their own party – political outsiders the voters might turn to as backlash?

    Ayers petitioned the donors at the meeting to form a coalition of donors to offer an ultimatum to McConnell and his allies: get President Donald Trump’s agenda through by year’s end or “we’re going out, we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

    I'd be sweating if I was a down-ticket Republican. Not only will you have to lug around Trump's idiocy, you'll have to do it with little to no financial help from national.

    None of that is true .... you are being seriously misled.

    If I prove you wrong, are you willing to admit it?
