until September to potentially threaten a government shutdown when he could have done so at the end of April?

The Continuing Resolution to fund the Government would have run out last week had Congress not passed a Joint Resolution to spend, spend, spend through September.

That a J.R. and a Bill are essentially interchangeable, the obvious question begging an answer is: Why did Trump not veto the damned thing? Almost nothing he has wished for was included in the Bill, so why not veto?

Perhaps Trump is right in that the procedural rules to invoke cloture on a filibuster need to be changed. But I think it is more than just a rule change, or electing more Republicans. I think there is more to it than simply draining a swamp. I think the problem goes further than lawyers and lobbyists writing legisation.

I think the entire system is in cardiac arrest. And I don’t think the general American population would understand the freedoms and necessary sacrifices of the early Federalist period.

Where’s the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for that?
