To The Daily Sun,
There will be no summer break for the Congress. The pressure is on and they will be sweating it out. It won't be from the July heat and humidity. Maybe the leaders could all take a four-day weekend in New York City. They could meet secretly in a non-Trump hotel with Shummer and a select group of leading liberals. Call them Democrats, if you must!
Now, whatever could they talk about? Might I be so bold as to suggest a few agenda items? How about the relationship between what they do or
not do in the next few months and the solvency of some of the states? Is it relevant to consider how the states of New Jersey and Illinois are going to be financially if Medicaid is scaled back radically?
Once the discussion of all things medical is completed, they could move on to discussing what the infrastructure needs are. I'm sure that the states have a long list in that regard. Maybe some of those at the meeting could suggest an approach to immigration that would finally give us a guide as to how people can get into the U.S. legally.
After they had gotten to end of the list of pending problems and agreed upon a timeline for implementation of the solutions, they could call the president and warn him that legislation will soon arrive on his desk for signature. That should be worthy of a tweet! But he will sign it without checking to see if it helps drain the swamp?
Of course it will never play out that way, but we can dream, can't we? As for me, I am taking the rest of the summer off. You can find me on a trout stream up north!
