Like my wife says, in 3 1/2 years someone else will be elected and can hopefully fix the uncertainty being created by this administration. Next time let's get someone who respects the Constitution, knows something about history, and understands what it is to be ethical.

You can't take over $1 trillion out of the economy via the healthcare bill that passed the House and is working its way through the Senate and not have severe job losses in all health related fields, hospital bankruptcies, etc. Ditto other federal agencies and programs - severe cuts affect office supply suppliers, custodian contractors, IT, printers and publishers, all businesses that contract with the government. If severe cuts go through, the economy in the US is going to tank and unemployment is going to go up, up, up. The construction industry is going to slow down, if not halt and suffer expensive delays if limits on foreign steel imports are enacted. Why? Because steel mills and related production facilities in the US have been razed - they simply no longer exist to the extent they would be needed to produce all the steel needed for continued construction and growth. Our transportation infrastructure, i.e., trains, to transport steel, are practically non-existent. One need only look at the train yards in the Pittsburgh area or any former high industrial area. What remains is small compared to what would be needed. Trump is bringing this country down. We live in a global economy and can't be isolated from that. It's already clear after less than 6 months that he lies, he exaggerates, he doesn't read and study issues, he can't get along with foreign leaders, he can't even make conversation with them, he has severe conflicts of interest both domestic and foreign, and he is only out for his own bottom line.

Trumpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Trumpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the King's horses and all the King's men (GOP) couldn't put Humpty back together again.

My investment portfolio is rockin'. Thank you President Trump. If this keeps up for eight years, I'll be able to retire at the end of Trump's second term.
