Politics as Usual
If you really believe that something is wrong, you stand up for it. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way in Washington. Politicians will take bribes to vote on bills they don't believe in. It is called "negotiation." This is why you have so many non-related items in these pieces of legislation. It is disgusting. President Trump is dedicated to draining the swamp. It is such an unrealistic objective. To do so, you would have to change the human DNA. The only way we turn the Titanic around is by setting term limits and getting rid of politics as usual. You can always buy a politician's vote.
