Not thrilled with then efforts to “drain the swamp” thus far. Certainly better than if HC had been elected.  The most recent budget contained numerous spending initiatives which allowed Democrats to claim victory. With this single event combined with a major division in the Republican party, future budgets will continue to NOT be representative of the fiscal responsibility most of us were hoping for.


“I think we had a strategy and it worked,” Schumer said in an interview with The Washington Post. “Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate were closer to one another than Republicans were to Donald Trump.”


How is it that with a Republican Senate, a Republican House, and a Republican President true progress cannot be made?

Answer: Corruption.

politics, Democrats, Republicans, budget, corruption
