225: Days since the start of this Republican Congress as of August 15, 2017
What does President Trump have to show for the first 200 days of his presidency? Not much. He has spent 64 days visiting Trump properties, tweeted 1182 times since his inauguration and acquired more White House Chiefs of Staff, Communications Directors and FBI Directors (2 each) than major legislative accomplishments (ZERO) – even with the first GOP-controlled White House and Congress in a decade. No wonder he’s ‘achieved’ the lowest approval rating at the six-month mark of any president in 70 years (38%).
Today marks 200 days of the Trump presidency. Here’s a look back at this Fiction vs. Reality Administration:
This morning, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Chris Wallace on Fox News’ Fox News Sunday to discuss Democrats’ willingness to work with Republicans to improve and update the Affordable Care Act by lowering costs, improving quality and expanding coverage while stabilizing the marketplaces.
This week, Democrats launched ‘A Better Deal’ a bold economic agenda to create good jobs, lower the cost of living and build an economy that gives every American the tools to succeed in the 21st Century. House Democrats stand unified in their policy proposals to create 10 million good-paying, full-time jobs over the next five years, aggressively lower prescription drug costs and put economic power back into the hands of America’s families by cracking down on corporate monopolies and mergers.
It’s safe to say it has been a flat-out horrible week for President Trump and his Administration – with all versions of Trumpcare dead, overwhelming backlash on the President’s tweets banning transgender servicemen, White House infighting reaching the point of insanity and GOP leaders condemning Trump’s threats to fire his own Attorney General. And that is not all: almost 7 months into his presidency, President Trump has yet to sign a single piece of legislation to create-good paying jobs and grow wages for hard-working Americans – a promise he has repeated over and over again. It’s no wonder his approval rating is the lowest of any U.S. president in more than three decades.
Tonight, a bipartisan group of governors sent a letter to Congress urging the Senate to swiftly reject the flawed and immoral House Trumpcare bill as well as the “skinny” Trumpcare bill being considered this week.
Yesterday, Senate Republicans began the process to repeal (and possibly replace) the ACA – without revealing any details of what will actually be in their bill. And now, with their last-minute addition of ‘skinny’ Trumpcare, Republicans have only added to their list… Continue
This week, House and Senate Democrats offered ‘A Better Deal’ for Americans in Berryville, Virginia – laying out an ambitious new economic agenda committed to the hard-working people across the country who have been left out and left behind for too long. Founded on strong values, fueled by fresh ideas, Democrats are giving communities tools they need to prosper, unlocking unprecedented economic growth that will lead to better jobs, better wages, and a better future.
Today, in his speech to ‘victims’ of the Affordable Care Act, President Trump claimed that the ACA is “death” and “has wreaked havoc on the lives of innocent, hard-working Americans.”
