Will ObamaCare be Repealed and Replaced ? - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

THIS is the first real domestic test for the Trump Administration, the Oval Office needs all hands on deck to get the new health care bill passed in the House.   The Republicans have promised for years that they would replace ObamaCare, if they failed it could damage the Trump Agenda in the future, what about tax cuts, an increase in defence spending, the Great Wall to cover the border between US and Mexico.  The politics of this is interesting, can Trump be a FDR, LBJ, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and President Obama and get his Agenda through the the US Congress.   Donald Trump sold himself as a deal maker, well this is the big test, is Trump ALL talk and no action, or talk and real action. 

North Korea and the Trump Administration - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

ANY effective sanctions against North Korea needs China to follow through, the problem is that China does not want to see North Korea fall apart and millions of North Koreans coming over the border to China, or a united Korea with the US on the border with China.   A complex case in many ways.   The US policy towards China has failed, every Administration since Bill Clinton has tried to do a deal with North Korea and the NK has let down every deal.   Thus what next, the Trump Administration has stated that the military option is on the table, but that is also a problem, NK is a nuclear armed and has millions in its Army, the fear is that any attack on NK would lead to ramifications for South Korea.  When diplomacy fails, and the military option is costly what is the next path, let's hope the Oval Office under Trump can come up with a solution.

The Supreme Court and President Trump - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

If Judge Neil Gorsuch is approved by the Senate he will return the Court to the hands of the Conservatives on the bench.  The voters who voted for Trump will see that he has kept his promise to appoint a Conservative Judge.   Thus far the Democrats have not found a good reason to oppose him, being a Conservative is enough for most Democrats.  It will be interesting to see how Judge Gorsuch rules on the cases before the Court.
