    The difference is that one is law the other is not.
    That's right: your side lost, as in losing, the losers.

    Its a piece of legislation.

    Lots of legislation never passes.

    How long did it take Obama to get a budget passed through his democratic congress?

    Oh yeah, he couldn't.

    Had to wait for republicans to come in.

    49 of 52 senate republicans for the repeal.
    Didn't get repealed though, did it? Trump failed to do what he promised, he is a loser.

    I'm sure you have heard the expression, "It ain't over until it is over.", right? There's more than three years left of this president's term.

    I'm sorry, did he set a specific date?

    You know he is still in office don't you?

    For like 3 and a half more years.

    Yes, UNLESS he is impeached and convicted and removed from office; dies of natural causes; is overthrown by a military coup; is overthrown by some populist pitchforks & torches revolution; someone assassinates him; or he dies in a war probably started by himself.

    If none of those things happens, then we probably ARE stuck with him for another three-and-a-half years.

    Then you can't call him a failure yet when his term basically just started.

    Trump is trying to order the Senate to do what he wants, but the Senate is part of a co-equal branch of the United States government.
    --That seems to be standard practice for Presidents. Especially, the past few. Of course, somehow, someway, Slick managed to work with Congress. Even as they were impeaching him. Now, we can give credit to Slick (He certainly deserves a good deal...not many could work so well with a Congress, in the process of bringing Impeachment charges against him), but, also, I just feel that the Congress Elites of yesteryear, were more about...doing their jobs.

    --IF we had stronger leadership in Congress (Mr. Magoo and Eddie Munster don't seem up to the task...), then perhaps, the Executive would not intrude into their business. But, alas, the sad reality, is that CONGRESS is no longer "co-equal" and hasn't been for decades.....

    They donít work for Trump, and if he continues to push them, Republican Senators will make him pay for his arrogance.
    --I am of the opinion that they are far more motivated by his strong anti-establishment agenda, than anything else. Which is not surprising.

    That about sums it up. The GOP is going to go on long after the Trump administration. The President needs to remember that...
    --I don't think he is all that concerned about the future of the GOP Aristocracy.

    Valid point.

    But...said point hardly addresses @Southern Dad 's.


    Does one need to be a member of the Senate, in order to have an opinion? Are we all supposed to sit back, and wait for our Senators to tell us our positions?

    I don't think I can adhere to that policy.....
