BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN SPEECH, AMAZINGLY DELIVERED AND MADE DEMOCRATS LOOK REALLY, REALLY SMALL … THIS I CAN TELL YOU!!!
Tonight in President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, he called for a “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, historic tax reform for business and the middle class, an increase in military spending by $54 billion, while cutting other agency budgets by the same amount and leave entitlements like Medicare untouched. Trump asked for Republicans and Democrats to work together for the sake of the American people to give the people a real healthcare plan that they are not forced to buy from the government, lower the cost and provide an actually working form of insurance that works before Obamacare implodes. And he called for the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS, a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs.
By contrast, Democrats looked so small tonight as they refused to stand or clap for President Trump’s vision of school choice for blacks and Hispanics, jobs for Americans, or the support of United States citizens who were victims of of illegal immigrant violence. Many in this country, especially Independents are asking themselves just who’s side are you on?
President Trump declared Tuesday that a “new chapter of American greatness is now beginning” as he made economic revival the centerpiece of his first address to Congress – issuing a clarion call to “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program.
He also called on Congress to replace what he called the “imploding ObamaCare disaster,” with legislation that lowers costs and expands access, an ambitious goal for GOP lawmakers still trying to come together on a plan.
The president outlined his agenda in an address to a joint session of Congress that lasted roughly an hour and focused almost exclusively on priorities at home, not abroad. He offered a decidedly upbeat vision for the future of the country that stood in contrast to his at-times foreboding inauguration address.
“Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope,” Trump said.
Trump for the most part traded the contentious and punchy tone of the last few weeks for loftier – some might say more presidential – rhetoric. Declaring “the time for small thinking is over,” Trump appealed to the country to “believe, once more, in America.”
