Trumpocrats: The only way Democrats can retain their seats in US Congress
Democrats just can’t help themselves. Trump beat Clinton, but they still worship every scotch-soaked word out of Hillary’s mouth is the Word of God. Four various contested seats in Kansas, Montana, Georgia and South Carolina, the Republicans won all four, but they still worship the ground that Nancy Pelosi slithers across.
But in their sick, twisted way, it makes sense that they throw everything at President Trump to include the kitchen sink. If the Trump agenda is even slightly successful, that means the House and Senate will remain in Republican hands during the mid-terms.
It goes without saying that as long as Trump’s America First policy makes life better for this nation’s citizens, the fortunes of the Democratic Party will be swirling the bowl.
You see, it’s to the Democrats political advantage that America fail. It’s the only way they can point at (blame) Trump and the GOP and still make any kind of case for their re-elections.
Yet I still scratch my head at the obstinacy of the Democrats clinging to their talking points of “Trump is worse than Satan”.
Doesn’t it make more sense that the likes of Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Alabama) or Rep. Peter Defazio (D-Oregon), work with the Trump Administration to bring jobs — jobs ranging from manufacturing to agriculture and everything in-between — to the American people?
Ohio’s industry, Alabama’s crops, Oregon’s lumber, etc, could all see huge increases if the Democrat politicians those citizens sent to DC simply chose to work with Trump.
Well, maybe there is a small glimmer of hope.
Mike Lillis of The Hill reports that the Lilliputian-sized (18 members) Blue Dog Democrats Caucus just met with “Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and Marc Short, the president’s director of legislative affairs…”
[T]he Blue Dogs see themselves potentially stepping into the mix to broker a bipartisan deal for the sake of getting tax reform to Trump’s desk this year.
“If it’s constructive, if they’re genuinely interested in ideas and making it a bipartisan effort, then the Blue Dogs are certainly willing to participate,” said Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.), a member of the group.
“You’ve got the far left, you’ve got the far right, and the Blue Dogs are in the center. And basically, we want a tax code that’s efficient, that works for everybody.”
