The inability of President Trump to convince, cajole, or coerce enough members of his own Republican party to vote to pass legislation to repeal/replace “Obamacare” Friday may have provided our new President the toughest lesson he’s had to learn since he reached adulthood.
The man who’s opponents feared would become a dictator, the man known for making deals and creating businesses in multiple industries, has just learned how difficult it can be to get Congress to do anything meaningful in today’s political arena.
It provides a perfect reminder that although every politician says that our government should run like a business, it never has and probably never will.
Although American companies have borrowed some of the bigger time wasting features of our congress, including the committee and the 5-year strategic plan, a business that operated at the speed and efficiency of our congress would today be designing the crank telephone.
If indeed the swamp is being drained, it’s happening one very slow trickle at a time.
I was very disappointed to hear our President say late Friday that his plan now was to let “Obamacare” collapse and then get congress to replace it.
Donald Trump should remember that he’s representing millions of Americans who are seeing health insurance deductibles rise and premiums skyrocket.
In business, there are times that you have to settle for the deal you can get instead of the deal you want.
I learned that on “The Apprentice”, which was hosted by a certain someone until this year!
That’s the way I see it.
