Oct 08 2017

The Administration can't be serious about compromise or helping the Dreamers if they begin with a list that is anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans. The list includes the wall, which was explicitly ruled out of the negotiations. If the President was serious about protecting the Dreamers, his staff has not made a good faith effort to do

As bad as Trumpcare was, Republicans have been up to all night trying to make it worse. They're scrambling to find a bill that they can pass on the floor. I don't know if you want to call this on Trump's part a 'rookie's error'. But you don't find a day and say we're going to pass a bill. you build your consensus in your caucus. And when you're ready, you set the date to bring it to the
