Remember All of Obamacare’s Broken Promises? There were a lot of promises made in selling Obamacare—and it seems like just about all of them have been broken.

President Trump’s Proposed Budget

President Trump’s first proposed budget shows respect for the people who pay the bills. The administration’s proposal reverses the damaging trends from previous administrations by putting our nation’s budget back into balance and reducing our debt through fiscally conservative principles, all the while delivering on President Trump’s campaign promise not to cut Social Security retirement or Medicare. The budget’s combination of regulatory, tax, and welfare reforms will provide opportunities for economic growth and creation. Get the facts about President Trump’s budget.

BALANCE & CUTTING SPENDING

Unlike any budget proposed by the previous administration, the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget achieves balance within the 10-year budget window and begins to reduce the national debt within that same window.

The policies in this Budget will drive down spending and grow the economy. By 2027, when the budget reaches balance, publicly held debt will be reduced to less than 60 percent of GDP, the lowest level since 2010.

NO CUTS TO MEDICARE & SOCIAL SECURITY

The President’s Budget does not cut core Social Security benefits. And the President is fulfilling his presidential campaign promise not to cut Medicare benefits.

SAVING TAXPAYERS MONEY

President Trump’s budget saves the American people billions of dollars through welfare, tax, and regulatory reform.

SUPPORTING OUR MILITARY

The President is requesting $54 billion, or 10 percent, more than the defense level President Obama signed into law for both the 2017 CR and the 2018 budget cap. This increase balances the need to rebuild the military with the need for disciplined, strategy-driven, executable growth.

KEEPING AMERICANS SAFE

The Budget includes over $2.6 billion in new infrastructure and technology investments in 2018 to give CBP frontline law enforcement officers the tools and technologies they need to deter, deny, identify, track, and resolve illegal activity along the border.

PUTTING AMERICAN FAMILIES FIRST

President Trump’s budget provides national paid family leave for the first time in the history of this country.

Trump Holds Lively Press Conference on Jan. 11th, 2017


In one of his most momentous appearances since the 2016 election, President-Elect Donald J. Trump and his lawyer set forth plans to remove all possibility of, or even the slightest perception of “conflict-of-interest” among the Trump business-empire and his imminent presidency. This is an example of the thoroughness with which Donald J. Trump conducts his duties; he has already extricated himself from his building company’s top position  and handed the reins to his three oldest children. A strong desire to be an example of impeccable ethics and professionalism consistently guides Mr. Trump to go above and beyond the call of duty; past presidents and members of Congress have not felt the need to totally distance themselves from their respective avenues of income-enhancement. The Washington, D.C. Swamp is a rotten borough, and this seasoned leader appropriately sets the tone for draining the cesspool of its stagnant, putrid muck.

Watch this press-conference for some very interesting and downright refreshing interaction by the future president with certain rogue members of the press, a league comprised of corporations and individuals who have marched in imbecilic lock-step against him for nearly two years like brainless followers of fashion. After the revelations of this morning about some twisted, absurd fake news they have been propounding this week, it would be most appropriate if Mr. Trump made a proposal to the unprofessional, unethical press using a great line from the movie, “Wall Street”: “I’ll stop telling the truth about you, if you stop lying about me…”!

“The Best Trump Video”

Trump-Pence Thank Supporters in Mobile, Alabama

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-ALABAMA) is a special guest-speaker at this exciting, packed rally in Mobile, Alabama on December 17th, 2016. Sen. Sessions was the first person in the U.S. Congress to endorse D.J. Trump in the presidential primary race, and appeared on the road with him many times, to the delight of rally crowds. Former Indiana Governor and President-Elect Mike Pence gives a rousing speech, expressing his gratitude, and introduces President-Elect Donald J. Trump at this, the last stop on their Thank You Tour. This may be the best Trump speech yet, and that’s saying a LOT!

Life-long Republican Hank Williams of Alabama sure sounded a lot like Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, & vice-versa (I think Jeff even looks a little like Hank). Give a listen:
