    Very true and probably will. That said Hurricane Harvey will hurt coming numbers I would think as business, both small and large, will cause major job changes and closures in that 6,000,000 million people area.

    agreed. And my comment wasn't a shot at Trump's administration. We should have been adding 400,000+ jobs a month for the past 6 years.

    Exactly what I thought about (and you) when I saw the news this morning. I do love the part about Paul Ryan being upset. What a bunch of non leaders in the GOP!

    Trump is not a conservative. He is not really even a republican.

    He got elected as a republican, and has said he would sign any legislation related to what the republicans ran on and voted on during the 8 years of Obama. Then suddenly these United republicans crumbled into factions.

    Worse than that, they attacked Trump for espousing the same ideals they had been espousing. John McCain almost knocked over the entire Senate chamber on his way to excitedly tell Schumer that he was voting with the dems on Obamacare repeal.

    I hope this is not one the republicans let get away. The conservatives would have gotten 95 percent of what they wanted with him as opposed to zero under Obama and Clinton.

    Now maybe we get nothing because republicans cannot govern. Makes me sick, but I saw it coming. I just thought it would happen because the dems would court him to their side instead of the republicans pushing him over.

    Part of the problem is the illusion of control. When dems had both houses of congress in 2009 and 2010, they had a near filibuster-proof majority in the senate (I think 59 seats when you counted Sanders and Leiberman). Even with that, they still needed reconciliation to pass Obamacare.

    When you have the media on their side, the Democrats can afford to be in lockstep against any otherwise reasonable bills the republicans put forward.

    Introduce a president who is functionally a democrat with no articulated policy specifics and an ideologically inconsistent policy strategy (at best), and you get fractured republicans.

    What was the problem back when the republican leadership was sitting around and having a great laugh together as they ridiculed the tea party and blamed them for things not getting done. I don't think Trump was even in the picture then.

    They were having that laugh with Obama. I remember it well.

    I did not feel very represented at that point

    They were being fools, and hinting at their true big government nature.

    The tea party was the last great hope for a conservative congressional agenda. Republican backtracking on the basic principles of small government put the tea party in the coffin. Moderate, Trumpian nationalism put the nails in.
