How to push through the Trump agenda

If I were Donald Trump, this is how I would force my agenda through the Republican-controlled legislature.

First, I would schedule an "important" prime-time announcement from the Oval Office.  (Also, I would make some oblique remarks that would lead the media to think that I might be going to announce my resignation.  This ploy is to ensure maximum coverage and viewership.)

Once on-air, I would say the following:

"During the campaign I made no pretense about my agenda, and you elected me specifically to implement that agenda.  My positions have not changed.  We must repeal Obamacare.  We must cut taxes.  And we must build the wall."

"When I came to Washington, I fully expected that the Democrats would oppose my efforts.  What I did not expect was to also be battling the Republicans.  I need your help to break this logjam.

"To this end, I am starting a Political Action Committee called DTS-PAC.  DTS stands for Drain-The-Swamp.  All of the contributions to this PAC will be used to fund primary challenges against those Republicans who refuse to pass my agenda.

"If you still support me and the issues that brought me here, I ask that you make a contribution to this PAC during the month of August.  This effort will costly, but every dollar you donate will send a message to these politicians in the only language they understand.  Money."

I believe this would raise an enormous amount of money and put the fear of god into our political elites.  They would either have to support the agenda or face the loss of their power.

How Would You Fix the Economy?

How simple can it get?Early RetirementThe FixThere recently was an article in the St. Petersburg Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?"I think this guy nailed it!_____Dear Mr. President,Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.. Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:1) They MUST retire.. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.2) They MUST buy a new American CAR. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.It can't get any easier than that!!P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes....Mr... President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If not, please disregard.
