    Now Pelosi is claiming that one way or another, Trump won’t be president next year, and “will be impeached forever.”

    It’s clear: Impeachment was a Democrat hit job to stain Trump’s legacy and hurt him at the polls. Nothing more.

      Nobody EVER said he was going to be the next president, not even him! They had him on the air, not as often as you claim, but sometimes, but they have a lot of airtime to fill, and he was suing the president of the United States. That’s news, no matter who’s doing it.

    Bloombergs plan to tax the wealthy and increased tax on capital gains in order to pay for tuition and forgive student loans will only trickle down to the middle class by forcing the corporations to increase their prices on goods and consumables. The wealthy don’t get wealthy by luck or being stupid, they are not going to let any of these tax hikes decrease their bottom line.

      Not one dime of the tax breaks they got filtered down to the consumers. The CEOs used the money to buy back their stock, which made the stock prices go up, which made their profitably look better, so the CEOs got bonuses. It also made the stock market go up generally, which Trump points to as a success, which it isn’t. It’s smoke and mirrors, and will implode again soon, just like it did in 2008.

    Is President Trump the only one in Washington who has read the Constitution? Forgive us, but that’s how, amid the brouhaha over Mr. Trump’s criticism of the Justice Department, we would turn around the question that Khizr Khan famously asked at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The president, it seems, has a clearer grasp of his constitutional powers and obligations than anyone in this fray.

    The thing to focus on is Article II of the Constitution itself. It creates the president and vests in him — and him alone — the executive powers of the government. It’s as straightforward as it can be. “The executive Power,” it says, “shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.” It doesn’t say “some of the executive power.” It says “the” executive power. It vests such power in only the president.

    In any event, the fact that the executive power is vested in a single person makes the executive branch different from the legislative branch, where powers granted are diffused among 535 members of the House and Senate, and judicial branch, where power is diffused among 870 Article III judges. One thing this means is that, unlike judges and legislators, presidents can’t recuse themselves for a conflict of interest.

    It’s the old, “careful what you wish for” thing…Last year, Canadians faced a median wait of nearly 21 weeks to receive specialist treatment after getting referred by a general practitioner. Certain procedures come with longer waits. End-to-end, patients waited a median of 39 weeks for orthopedic surgery in 2019.

          Sadly, it looks like the only thing that Congress can promise is that the cost of healthcare to American citizens is guaranteed to go up in 2020 while coverage will undoubtedly decrease. SMBs will continue to hammer the unsuspecting patient and doctors will watch helplessly while bureaucrats march to a conclusion that only increases government control on the healthcare industry.
