GOP Senator: Time ‘Running Out’ to Pass Trump Agenda

July 12, 2017

CongressWASHINGTON – Republican senators who successfully lobbied Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to truncate lawmakers’ summer break said today that with limited working days left between now and the end of the fiscal year they have to tackle multiple items on President Trump’s agenda.

“The president basically said at the first of the year that there were four major priorities this year. One was healthcare, one was regulation, one was tax and one was the Supreme Court,” Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) said during a press conference with a group of GOP senators.

“We’re moving on most of those, but right now even if we get through healthcare in the next week or two, between now and the end of the fiscal year, we only have 31 working days left and we have the debt ceiling to get through, the budget for 2018, the reconciliation that goes with that and the appropriations process to fund the government before September 30,” he added.

Perdue said not taking the traditional August recess is “much bigger” than repealing and replacing Obamacare.

    Just repeal Obamacare-gov doesn’t need to replace it. Just put some common sense guidelines together and then the free market can take over.

    I am glad to see the politicians we have elected have put a list of priorities together for the American people to monitor their progress by. If this work is not done you don’t get ice cream, as my father use to say. This is a big boys game so the stakes are greater. Don’t fail your country at this point or you will go down in history famous like the Clintons, Reed, Boxer and Pelosi. Failure is not an option.
