The Trump Administration created a "Dreamer crisis" and then gave Congress six months to "fix" the problem. That's not constructive. The Trump Administration must work with Congress to fashion a legislative process which builds the trust of the American people and sets the stage for future legislation to modernize our antiquated immigration system.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects National Debt will rise to at least 110 percent of GDP by 2036. Before the United States reaches the 100 percent Debt to GDP threshold, no investor, foreign or domestic, will be willing or able to purchase our debt at any interest rate. The combination of political and social instability will swallow everything – including your savings. And yet, unlike Barack Obama, neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump have focused on the rising ratio of Debt to GDP or the risk it presents. No more credit card shopping for Congress and the American people. We can't pay the bill!
It is farcical to believe that it is possible to secure any of the nation's borders as long as the rewards of illegal entry – the "anchor baby" at the end of the rainbow -- outweigh the risks posed by the US Border Patrol, TSA, or Customs and Enforcement.
The President's unwillingness to work with Congress to fix laws he believes need fixing violates his constitutional oath to "faithfully execute" the laws of the land. Unchallenged, the President would set a precedent that reduces Congress to an investigative body.
some climate scientists have predicted that warmer temperatures caused by atmospheric pollution (climate change) may result in a decrease of as much as 40 percent in the annual snow pack over the next 40 years. If these scientists are correct, the gap between California’s fresh water supply and water demand could be more than 50 percent by mid-century.
There is a troubling juxtaposition between the President pictured in the Situation Room during the Bin Laden raid and the absence of any evidence the President and his health care policy and technology team ever conducted an ACA milestone review. In the former, the President had no control over the roll-out and the latter he had absolute control of the roll-out
As a result - no vision, no goals, no plan = no budget. That is why we have seen Continuing Resolution after Continuing Resolution to “fund the government” without asking the question are we funding the right priorities, at the right level with the right resources? Unless we arrive at an adequate answer to that question, it is a sure prescription for national bankruptcy!
The NSA leak case is just a metaphor that describes the entire US Government in a single word – incompetent. USA – the Super Power more like the Super Mouse! Super Mouse - the entire diplomatic, law enforcement and intelligence community of the United States cannot corral one 30 year old computer hacker!
It’s not our politicians who govern today. It’s a multi-million member Civil Service that is anonymous, unelected, and largely unaccountable. They can confiscate our property or throw us in jail if we don’t pay and obey! Didn’t we rebel against King George III for just the same behavior?
