Obviously that was what he intended for the minority leaders, next year remove the filibuster and chop their heads off.

pay for food
Pay for health care
pay for the children's education
Pay for transportation
Pay for necessary repairs
Pay for clothing.

The necessities of government might include.
Pay your civilian employees.
Pay your elected officials
Pay your military employees.
Pay for transportation vehicles used by your civilian and elected officials including a big honkin' 747 used by POTUS
Pay for office space and supplies and heat and light and plumbing and upkeep on all those buildings.
Pay for tanks, artillery pieces, guns, grenades, airplanes, bombs, bullets, RPGs, bazookas, napalm, bayonets, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines, torpedoes.
Pay for roads, bridges, tunnels.
pay for airports, ocean ports.
Pay for TSA screeners, FBI agents and other federal officers.
Pay for a freakin' wall.

I could probably go on for pages not scratch the surface of what the Federal
government is involved in. All of which, your opinion to the contrary not withstanding, is important and necessary.
The definition of flummoxed. This stuffs killing you...
And Trump just raised taxes on everybody in your beloved Illinois

The only collusion that exists is with the Dems and Obama/Hillary. Thankfully, we all get to put them in our rear view mirror. (At least for now till the next worthless Dem screaming PC bullshit.)

Insulted our allies? How about putting a foot down that we won't bend over anymore. Instead of an apology tour, he told the World that we are back, and we'll be leading once again.

He isn't playing chicken with NoKo's crazy man Jong-Un. He is letting that batshit crazy man know who is in charge, and won't sit idly by while he is looking to threaten the planet with nuclear and chemical war.

Put your pussy hat in the closet Most. It is OK to be an American again.

His popularity is far too low to expect otherwise..
All that stuff was being counted against him BEFORE he ever won in the first place.

And yet he still won.

I wouldn't count him out just yet...if he even runs again.

What great news! Now we have even more money to give to millionaires and billionaires. In the meantime Boco Harum can abduct more school girls; ISIS can continue murdering just about anybody and atrocities can continue world wide.

BS meter ringing of the wall!

Actually, satellite technology is already working on ways to spot Boco's moving campsites and coordinate attack on them. Saw in TV this week. More than OBama did, by just holding up a sign! Can you spell impudent?

And ISIS has been pretty much pushed out of most of the territory it took under
Obama.

And only an idiot would say this new tax plan benefits the middle class.

The Three Wiseless Guys - Schumer, Pelosi.....(what's your last name?)

One problem Trump faces in 2020 if he runs (and I think he does-his name and photo on every front page and newscast must be intoxicating for him)is that he is not running against Hillary Clinton, who was the dullest Democratic candidate since Mike Dukakis and the least trustworthy one in forever.The economy better be going well in 2020 because Trump will no longer have the novelty factor of his candidacy going for him, people will look for an excuse not to vote for him.And for those basking in the glow of the current economy, it was performing at a similar level for George W. Bush at the same point in his second term.

What Republican would have the balls to take a stand against him in 2020 ?
