President Trump is first and foremost a highly successful businessman. He is used to high-pressure deals, difficult negotiations, and making money. As the top executive in his organization, he is also used to taking the information he has solicited from subordinates, analyzing it, making a decision, and seeing it implemented.
In many ways, this is the opposite of the way Washington works. It must frustrate President Trump to no end. Where businesses succeed by making quality decisions and implementing them promptly and effectively, Washington operates by holding hearings, stringing things out, adding unnecessary staff, and postponing major decisions for as long as possible to reduce the likelihood of having to take responsibility, something politicians shun.
So we should not be surprised that House Speaker Paul Ryan has now reneged on his promise of passing tax cuts during President Trump’s first 200 days. The new target? Deer season. We kid you not.
“In December 2016 Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about how he would help the new president push through his agenda.”
Empty rhetoric from someone conservatives cannot trust.
“On March 8, 2017 Speaker Paul Ryan told Tucker Carlson Congress had a 200 day play to guarantee the president’s agenda would be passed.”
More empty rhetoric from someone who is becoming even more untrustworthy.
“But after 150 days nothing has happened. Paul Ryan’s 200 day plan will run out on August 7th. Today Paul Ryan pushed back his deadline to deer hunting season.”
And he may as well blame things on someone else. This is a specialty of politicians.
Deer hunting season. That’s now the goal.
The truth is that Mr. Ryan has never been comfortable with President Trump, and it would not be surprising to learn that he would have preferred to have worked with Hillary Clinton as president. He, along with others such as Senator McCain, are not on the President’s team. The very president that lead the Republican Party to victory in the presidential race as well as in the quest to keep control of both houses of Congress.
Forgive us if we are not quite ready to take Mr. Ryan’s word on this latest goal for passing tax cuts as gospel.
