Over-promised, alternative facts, fraud

When candidate Trump said that he would reveal his IRS filings after the audit and that he would divest his business holdings to comply with the no-conflicts-of-interest statute, he lied. He has done neither.

President Trump has demonstrated in just a few weeks in office something that others who know him well have said, "He is a fraud." He also pretended to know a lot about government because "He is smart," Guess what, he has proven to know very little. He doesn't listen or read. He is hopeless and unprepared.

Meanwhile, the political party to which he belongs and that is responsible for his being, control both legislative chambers. There, it should be a slam dunk to get things done. Except, their leader is off on Twitter tantrums. His agenda is noise in the system and often misaligned with theirs.

The relentless attack on Obamacare had gotten dialed back because when Republican legislators finally started working on the issue and stopped talking, they discover some things are performing well. It is a difficult job making it better.

"GOP frets over too-high expectations 
President Trump and GOP leaders on Capitol Hill have promised voters that 2017 will bring the repeal and replacement of ObamaCare, a long-awaited overhaul of the tax code and funding for a “great wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Now, some in the party are wondering whether Republicans have bitten off more than they can chew. 
Conservative naysayers inside and outside the Capitol argue that it’s not just about the GOP-controlled Congress’s slow start in carrying out Trump’s agenda." 
The Hill, email

The government is now broken in the Executive and Legislative Branches, and thanks to the Courts we are a nation surviving by the Rule of Law.

Not ready for prime time.
