The Trump effect is a good thing. He is doing exactly what he said he would do and exactly what people elected him to do. Newsflash to the Beltway establishment: Americans who elected Trump do not worship the current gods of the city. They know you’re responsible for killing the old ones and they wish to return the favor now. We want your gods dead. That is sort of what “drain the swamp” means. And, as Trump points out repeatedly: in America (at least in the middle part) we don’t worship government; we worship God. As in the one true God. Here…

“The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability.
Did someone just scream “That isn’t Fair”? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.
YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.
I say again: You don’t change the Military… you must change yourself.
The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.
If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Who’s next in line?” Sgt. Robert Brown US Army
Every time government gets involved in our lives it takes a slice for itself. Bureaucrats create administrative oversight requirements (more government agencies and workers) and more data requirements to be reported back to these agencies. More overhead. And so big government was both a primary cause and a primary beneficiary of the system we have today.
Despite all the debate in DC and the media about the national healthcare crisis, the status quo serves all players except one — the public. The Beltway bloviates about affordability but ignores the basic question: Why does healthcare cost so much? Where are the initiatives to lower high healthcare costs?

As the healthcare segment grew, it became an increasingly important source of campaign contributions. In the 2016 election cycle in round numbers at least $500 million from healthcare and health insurance interests went into campaign coffers. A growing healthcare segment of our economy is a growing source of campaign contributions. An example of the quid pro quo was the ACA’s “risk corridors”. At the public’s expense, participating insurance companies were protected by government against financial losses. Insurance companies — experts at managing risk — pulled a fast one in managing their own risk by transferring it to big government (and more specifically, taxpayers). Here….

But the only thing that is immortal in this world is a government bureaucracy. And now, irony of ironies, with the GOP in full control of the government, the Left is floating the idea of Charlie Gard-care thinking that the GOP wing of their party will embrace “bipartisanship!!!” and actually institute single payer. Think of that; the Left is electorally neutralized and yet they have a chance to institute their 100-year wet dream of national health — while being completely out of power. If the GOP even so much as hints that this is open to consideration, it really is the bitter end. For them and probably for us as well. Here….
