The White House is insanely claiming that Congress will vote on healthcare, tax reform, and keep the government open next week, even though Congress is only in session for four days, and Republicans have no votes scheduled. This White House is going to crazy lengths to make it look like Trump isn’t failing.
CNBC reported,/ “The White House hopes language on a possible health-care deal can come as early as Friday or Saturday, leaving the potential for an agreement next week, a White House official told CNBC. The Senate Budget Committee is assisting with the draft, which would be introduced first in the House.”
You’ll notice that this information didn’t come from anybody in Congress. It came from the White House. Trump is pushing for a health care vote next week, and he also told the AP that he is rolling out his tax plan next week. Plus, the government is facing a shutdown next Friday, and no one has come up with a plan to keep the government open.
All of this happening because Donald Trump has accomplished nothing in his first 100 days as president, and he wants a big legislative accomplishment before the 100-day mark.
The idea that the House will vote on health care and keep the government open, and look at Trump’s tax plan in a four-day work week is a crazy lie, but the point isn’t for Trump to get these done. The intention is to fool people into believing that he is doing something.
Voters aren’t buying it, and Trump’s cram session to get his homework done isn’t fooling anybody.
