People in Annapolis, Md., listen to speakers Saturday during the Annapolis Rally for Healthcare at Lawyer’s Mall.

Yes, this is how you get your agenda passed. Hardly. Talking with a friend here in D.C. last night, we were discussing the problems with Trump passing anything of significance through Congress. We both agreed that Trump's manner of dealing with government is problematic and that he tries to view D.C. as Trump Tower. The more he dictates to Congress and the courts, the less he'll get passed.
...
Our founders designed the republic in such a way no one single branch holds the power. Trump's desire to change the rules of the Senate are an encroachment on their ability to debate and govern. He just doesn't get how the republic works and neither do many of his followers, including several in here.
...
While Trump likes to lay out these bizarre scenarios of government such as Democrats rescinding the filibuster rule, during the entire time they were in power in the Senate not once did that come up other than to get judges confirmed because of Republican blocks.

Without a doubt, history will show that the big orange idiot is the worst POTUS in history. He has no idea how our republic works, and thinks of himself as a king rather than the head of one part of three co-equal branches of government. It really is time to invoke the 25th amendment.

When Collins got off plane in Maine airport crowd cheered ,she,McCain , Murkowski were decent human beings who did the right thing ,but Cotton,Boozman tried to take health care away from 400,000 working poor ,sick ,preexisting ,Arkansans and close rural hospitals /ERs may they have just judgement on judgement day.
