What the stupid ones in the House will never understand or accept is that Trump is about 20 x smarter than they are and he can play them over and over again. He can make them hysterical with a single tweet. The more cunning democrats think they're just as smart as Trump and don't realize that he glides through politics like a great white shark, about 90% submerged. They don't understand what he's doing until the jaws snap shut on them. I particularly like what his EPA is doing to the state of California.
The letter informs California that if it fails to submit new plans to increase air quality, the state would be ineligible to receive billions of dollars it is otherwise projected to get from the Federal Highway Administration.
"We certainly want to avoid these statutory triggers, but our foremost concern must be ensuring clean air for all Americans," Wheeler says in the letter. "That is our goal."
"California has failed to carry out its most basic responsibilities under the Clean Air Act, and as a result, millions of Californians live in areas that do not meet our nation's air quality standards," he said in a statement on the letter. "EPA stands ready to work with California to meet the Trump administration's goal of clean, healthy air for all Americans, and we hope the state will work with us in good faith."When President Trump acts they don't even hear the salvo warning alarm. He warned them (California) last week that he was going after them for their multitudinous failures to preserve the living environment for people but they probably thought he was just jacking them up and wouldn't actually follow thru.
I feel no pity for the House democrats who are now going to be faced with the option of thoroughly pissing off their constituents or pissing off Nancy Pelosi. However they vote, a number of them just got jammed into a giant cleft stick entirely of their own making.
