A Family Discussion of Mr. Trump

Cousin May blasts President Trump

By Lawrence J. Fedewa – – Monday, March 13, 2017

A few weeks ago, my column discussed the opponents to Mr. Trump. I divided them into three groups: the true believers, the pragmatists, and the anarchists. Among the pragmatists, I referenced “a church full of relatives”. The excerpt was as follows:

“The pragmatists see everything differently. These people are not extremists. They believe that the status quo ante has worked quite well for the past 50 years, and they do not want to see it replaced with something different which may not work as well and which is therefore a leap in the dark.

“I have a whole church full of relatives who are solidly anti-Trump but are certainly not extremists. They are lifelong Democrats, solid citizens in a Midwestern state (Michigan) which has been governed with few exceptions by union-backed governors and senators ever since the Depression. They are against Mr. Trump because they don’t like his style but primarily because they don’t understand him and don’t agree with what they do understand, a lot of which comes from the heavily biased media. Most Democratic politicians also fall into this category.”

This comment drew the following response from Cousin May:

“I enjoyed reading your recent commentary. I am not so sure I fit into the category you have placed your “church full of relatives”. I am devastated by the election of Donald Trump and have decided to quell my angst by taking action and communicating as much as possible with our elected officials.

Trump sets expectations on GOP health plan: ‘It’s going to take a little while to get there’

Washington (CNN) – Health care costs won’t decrease right away if a Republican plan to replace Obamacare is passed, President Donald Trump warned Monday.

Trump told a White House gathering of Americans who say they’ve been negatively affected by the Affordable Care Act that it could take several years before a drop in prices.
“More competition and less regulation will finally bring down the cost of care, and I think it will bring it down significantly. Unfortunately, it takes a while to get there because you have to let that marketplace kick in,” Trump said.
“It’s going to take a little while to get there,” Trump added. “But once it does it’s going to be a thing of beauty. I wish it didn’t take a year or two years. But that’s what’s going to happen.”
GOP showdown over Obamacare repeal

GOP showdown over Obamacare repeal 02:42
The President’s remarks came as Republicans awaited a closely watched score from the Congressional Budget Office on their health care replacement plan, which was unveiled and debated last week. Democrats argue the measure, called the American Health Care Act, will force millions of Americans off their insurance plans while increasing costs.
The CBO score is expected as early as Monday.
Trump, in his meeting, expressed frustration that Obamacare seems to be rising in popularity among Americans. Indeed, polls show that more Americans favor the current health law, which was passed in 2010.
He placed blame for the rise on the media, which he claimed were focusing on Obamacare’s success stories without highlighting those Americans who have seen their premiums spike or their preferred insurance canceled.
“The press is making Obamacare look so good all of a sudden. I’m watching the news, it looks so good,” Trump said.
He argued that Americans’ views of his predecessor, President Barack Obama, were also improving now the Democratic leader has left office.
“When he left, people like him. When he was here, people didn’t like him so much. That’s the way life goes. It’s human nature,” Trump said.
