2017: Trump’s Reality Revolution Won - Now It Must be Implemented Seton Motley Posted: Jan 03, 2017
Despite this record of nigh perfect imperfection, the list of things in which the federal government insists on involving itself has continued to inexorably grow. And as the Feds increased their role in…everything, the tethers to any rational justification for it get thinner and thinner, and ever more frayed.
We the People have finally had it, and have elected political newbie Donald Trump to come in and clean house. His was the "Reality Revolution" - and it won him the White House. Now he must implement his revolutionary reforms - to begin to undo decades of rank DC stupidity.
To wit: By the time the Feds wanted to impose Obamacare, we already had two decades-long visual aides of government medicine - Medicare and the Veterans Administration (VA). These are two unmitigated disasters.
Medicare?: “The Medicare Actuary says that taxpayers now face a Medicare unfunded liability ranging from $27.9 to $36.8 trillion.”
The VA?: “One year after outrage about long waiting lists for health care shook the Department of Veterans Affairs, the agency is facing a new crisis: The number of veterans on waiting lists of one month or more is now 50 percent higher than it was during the height of last year’s problems, department officials say.”
Trump’s victory gives us hope. Trump’s administration must give us results.
