Trump looks to seize political momentum in 2018

The White House believes a strong close to 2017, capped by the passage of a $1.5 trillion tax bill, has put President Trump in a positive position as he enters his second year in office.

The sweeping tax package helped erase the sting of the GOP’s failure to repeal ObamaCare and let Trump and his congressional allies put their very public differences aside in a year-end celebration at the White House.

Trump’s team argues that the tax bill, which also ended the mandate for individuals to buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act and opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, put a bow on a positive and meaningful first year for Trump.

“At the end of the year, you see the president achieving things and getting results,” said a White House official. “We had, basically, a hat trick of accomplishments coming in all at once in the tax bill.”

    I think the easiest way for a healthcare system reform would be to force the IRS to evaluate the expenditures of the healthcare providers. If you take tax dollars to provide a service (government healthcare services) then I believe the government should regulate the amount and were all moneys that provider makes should be spent, and if it is more then is what is needed to provide a fare service it should be returned to the government coffers. If you want all the tax payers money to get rich then I think the tax payers minions should regulate you down to the squeal.
    With the annual income I make and the taxes I pay I could provide insurance for my family if I was able to deduct 100% of my insurance payments and deductibles from my end of year tax bill. This would drop the government healthcare burden and let me select my own insurance and medical providers.

    Help everyone get a job and let us provide for ourselves. If you choose to not work then you get nothing. Now that is true freedom.

    Trump ends on a positive note as long as you don’t remember what he said in the past about what he wanted for the American people. This isn’t anything like the tax bill he promised and he never promised to destroy healthcare for millions. What ever happened to repeal and replace with something better, healthcare for all at a cost you could afford? What happened to the promise that Trump wouldn’t benefit form the tax plan?
