When Democratic primary candidates were asked last Thursday about the economic policy platforms of their campaigns in light of the fact that Trump’s economy has yielded record-setting stock market performances, historically low unemployment rates, and significant GDP numbers, Andrew Yang’s answer interestingly sounded more like a medical doctor diagnosing America’s collectively failing health than an economist wonking out on growth policies.
If this is such a fine piece of legislation, why didn't congressional Republicans rush it to the White House today to get the president's signature on it?
When a conspiracy theorist is elected President of the United States, these are the things you can expect to happen.
In the early going, it appears that Trump's efforts to keep people from getting health insurance are failing – but it still remains to be seen what the long-term effects of his sabotage will be.
Republicans want you to believe they give a hoot about the opioid crisis in America, while they continue to vote for budgets that cut crucial funding.
No, Republicans who have opposed some or all of Trump's dangerous agenda are not "fake." But religious leaders like Falwell Jr. who support this president are.
Look, the facts are the president is not keeping his word. He signed 50 executive orders since the day he took office, which, if you do the math, is about one every five days.
Schumer told the president that Obamacare repeal is "off the table" and he should join other Republicans who are working with Democrats to improve the existing law.
Trump's refusal to take action that would actually help people is proof of what we've already known about this president: He would rather play political games than improve the lives of the American people.
President Trump expressed a happy expected win on the GOP health care bill after Friday, only to learn after that tweet what everyone else already knew, and that is that the parliamentary rules that would have allowed Republicans to ram their horrific bill through expire on Friday.
Instead of using taxpayer dollars to enrich himself, perhaps Tom Price – and his boss – should use the funds to improve the lives of the people they are supposed to be serving.
As Price squanders U.S. taxpayer funds for his expensive private flights, he and his boss are working tirelessly to take health insurance away from millions of Americans.
The new health care legislation, which Republicans are now working to ram through the Senate, gives states the option of not covering pre-existing conditions.
"[The process for the Cassidy-Graham bill] is better but it's not what the Senate is supposed to be doing," he said. "Is it better to be guilty of murder or train robbery?"
Like a villain in a horror movie that appears one last time to wreak havoc, Republicans are again making one last attempt to inflict pain on millions.
"We have a Medicare system right now. It is a good system. ... Let's expand that program to every man, woman, and child. It's not a scary proposition."
The move by top Democrats sets up a stark contrast between themselves and Donald Trump ahead of the 2020 election.
The White House wants to see the plan approved by Congress, but not even GOP leadership is interested in pushing the measure through.
It probably didn't take long for Tom Price to regret his decision to participate in the baseball tradition.
The poll released Monday showed Trump's approval rating at the lowest level in any survey released since he took office.
