Trump needs to fix this

When I voted Trump I did so with no delusions about his actually being a fiscal conservative. I hoped he would be better than Clinton. He has certainly been better than Clinton would have been simply due to the type of judges he nominates. But.....

When a modern national economies succumb to their debt loads and crash it is usually somewhere around the 100% debt to GDP ratio point. We've passed that and continue to pile up debt faster than ever (non-war time).

The GOP is useless.

They knew ObamaCare was an enormous mistake.
They had years to prepare to repeal/replace.
We gave them the House, Senate, and White House.
They did nothing.

They have been responsible for helping create this deficit/debt problem.
We gave them the House, Senate, and White House.
They did nothing.

Trump is no fiscal conservative.

I say it is time for a third party.
(**() the GOP.

It is simply incorrect to blame Trump and the whole GOP for not repealing Obamacare. Trump fought to have Congress repeal it. Congress voted to do so. The problem is that the Republican Party still had a few Liberals who opposed it.

"On July 27, 2017, the Health Care Freedom Act, also known as the "skinny repeal", was introduced. This bill was defeated 49–51, with Republican senators Susan Collins, John McCain, and Lisa Murkowski voting against it along with all the Democrats and Independents. 49 of 51 Republican Senators voted for it. 3 known quasi-Liberal "Republicans" voted against it.

The problem has always been that when the Republicans have a majority, it's not enough of one for the Conservatives to out-vote the Liberals across both chambers.

The American People are to blame for making it that way through their voting--along with the shameful media. For goodness's sake, man, Google literally posted that thousands of people will die if Obamacare is repealed. How do you think that affects the vote of millions of unthinking drones who live by the internet alone?

Since then, the GOP has effectively "killed much if Obamacare without repealing it."

I asked Fred, since he's blaming the "left" on everything.The rest resort to blaming Clinton.....she's just living rent free inside trumps fat head.

Again.... House, Senate, and White House

Indeed, far from delivering on his promise to cut America’s trade deficit, Trump has presided over a ballooning deficit that’s on pace to be some 25 percent higher than when he took office. This is happening at a time when the budget deficit is widening and the country’s public debt is well on its way to exceeding 90 percent of GDP.

Sadly, the Trump administration seems unfazed by the country’s deteriorating long-run financial position. It shows no indication of correcting policy course to put the economy on a sounder long-run economic footing. This makes it all too likely that the country’s incipient twin deficit problem will only worsen in the remaining 18 months of Trump’s first term. That in turn will further mortgage the country’s economic future and diminish the U.S. dollar’s attractiveness as an international reserve currency.
