    Yes, a United States senator really did collude with the Russians to influence the outcome of a presidential election. His name was Ted Kennedy.

    You mean a dilettante who should've been in jail and not Washington did something conniving with an enemy of the US to further benefit himself. My solution is since we can't put Teddy in jail let's put Donny in and not elect dilettante's anymore.

    I will give Teddy credit for being smarter than Donny though, Teddy didn't start a war with people he couldn't control. Donny opened hostilities with a pocket knife, they answered with machine guns so now he cries like the testicle free dilettante he is. Donny fought the wrong battle and is now lame duck and will be until the end of his term/s.

    Trump's only problem right now is Congress can't get their **** together. His party won the latest special elections, Republicans still hold the power.

    By the time the media is done with Trump he'll be toxic, he doesn't have a mandate and congress knows it.

    Trump's only problem right now is that Trump can't get his **** together. If he hadn't wasted so much time and political capital on unnecessary and unworkable EOs like that weird immigration ban, and had made a sincere effort to bring all the sides together on the first push for the Obamacare repeal & replace bill in the House last spring (rather than playing brinksmanship with the Freedom Caucus and getting burned in the end), he'd have gotten some serious legislation passed by this point. The American people want change, that much is clear; and yes, the Republican party now has the power to do just that. But Trump does not have the competence to get the job done.

    Obviously bad. But it was 30 years ago and the guy is dead.

    Trump doesn't write the legislation, he just signs off.

    When Trump decides to stick his nose into the legislative process, such as trying to threaten individual members of the Freedom Caucus, or to demand last-minute changes to the budget, he is most definitely getting involved in modifying legislation. Even when he doesn't stick his nose in, he dominates the news cycle so completely (talking about Russia, or about terrorism, or about how he won the election, or about how Hillary lost the election, or the slightest trivia about the election) that there is very little room remaining to talk about anything else.

    Either way, the bill provided by congress Senate & House, was not what Trump campaigned on. He said he wasn't going to allow anyone to "die in the streets". I assumed that meant getting rid of the mandate, and providing something better.
