    Maybe he should spend more time working, and less time golfing. That was another of his promises to us, remember? That he would be too busy running the country to do any golfing?
    He has a set of finished plans, they were sent to san diego, last I heard they were deciding on one.

    I made a whole thread about it.

    The solar panel wall seems to be the favorite.

    Wake me when it actually gets built.

    Haha ... that's funny, because one of the problems with the tentative plans I've seen so far is that they screw up golf courses. And that's not going over well.

    Cut a family farm in half, no problem -- but don't mess with high dollar golf courses.

    Gets pissed off when McConnell truthfully points out that Trump has no idea what goes into making this stuff happen. Just do it. Work through August. Then we can move on to something else. Hey, Trump will probably even buy a few extra energy points to make it happen. Does the legislation-creating-game accept Paypall?
    Except that, in this case, they put all this energy into trying to repeal Obamacare that you would think they would have something ready to go as soon as they knew they were getting a Republican president. They cannot pass anything even when they have all the power. While I tend to agree with your proposition generally, as to healthcare Congress should have been ready to pass something as soon as Trump was sworn in.

    Well, there is that. But they knew if they actually had a concrete plan before the elections, that would make it harder for them to get elected. One vital sector or another would have gotten disgusted. So before the election, between Nov. 8 and Jan. 20, or since -- there never was a time when they could have come up with a plan which would have pleased both Rand Paul and Susan Collins.

    Maybe, but I do not see how.

    That is entirely possible under any circumstance. It makes me wonder how they voted on all those repeal votes (or were those only in the House?).

    I doubt very seriously Trump plays any strategy games at all, it would take too much thinking and effort of his own. Trump is a habitual delegator who just yells at other people to "get it done". He tends to agree with the last person he talked to then fires or promotes them based on how it turned out for him... zero intelectual weight lifting.

    It's hard to find contractors who don't like taking jobs.

    I believe they've collected bids.

    However, Trump is kind of busy at the moment to focus on the wall.

    I am still trying to find which design finally won out but it might be on hold for the moment.

    It still looks like most of the groundwork has been done.

    This is why this investigation is so stupid, its just stopping Trump from doing his job.
