Weekly Wrap-Up

Republicans still don’t “get” President Trump, and in many ways this week’s massive “only-in-Washington” spending bill is the latest example. It’s a “bipartisan” affair, meaning both parties are spending like there’s no tomorrow. 

By the time you read this we’ll probably know whether or not the President was serious about vetoing the bill, but there’s no question that the legislation is loaded with wasteful spending and broken promises (and what’s not in the bill is equally exasperating).  And I hate to see the military being used as cover for all this excess spending.

What frustrates you the MOST about the newly-passed GOP spending bill? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll. 

More shakeups at the White House, as John Bolton will take over as the new National Security Advisor. This is being seen as a win for America, and a loss for Iran and Russia, and for White House leakers.

Bolton says the White House leaks are “completely unacceptable,” and the most recent, involving President Trump’s briefing papers for a phone call with Vladimir Putin, is being described by the White House as “fireable,” and rightly so. 

What do you think is the worst thing about the leaks coming from the White House? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.
