How did that happen? When do we ever hear of Republicans getting their agenda done when Democrats are running things?
The budget deal that President Trump signed this morning included several big items off the Democrats’ 2017 wish list, according to the Washington Post:
In negotiations, Democrats checked off several items in the Better Deal, a compendium of policies backed by Democrats in the past and brainstormed in meetings last spring and summer. The new items include $5.8 billion for the Child Care Development Block Grant program; $20 billion in infrastructure spending, including rural broadband funds, with no corresponding cuts; and a special joint committee on fulfilling pension obligations, with the results to be voted on by the end of the year.
Just imagine what they’ll get done if they take over. Wasn’t so long ago. Taken a look at your insurance premiums recently?
