There are major issues in our country with solutions that seem to be going nowhere.
Big issues that affect every American are being pushed aside by elected leaders on both side of the political spectrum. Instead of addressing the major issues that impact our daily lives, wedge issues are being pushed to appeal to their bases.
Here’s an idea, if the President and our Congress are really SERIOUS about issues like healthcare and tax reform I have a sure-fire solution that I guarantee could get majority passage on both issues.
IF I WERE PRESIDENT……
If I were President I would call a join session of Congress, have it televised and as I stepped to the podium my entire speech would be….
My fellow Americans, I stand before you tonight as your President knowing that major issues that affect us all are not being resolved and “We the People” deserve better.
With this being said, tonight I call on Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leaders Pelosi and Schumer to appoint four members from their aisle, and their respective arms of Congress, to focus on healthcare, another four from each side of the aisle to focus on tax reform.
In 24 hours they are to report to Camp David. The assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Budget Director will meet them there.
These elected officials and my representatives will not leave Camp David until they have reached consensus on these issues that affect us all. They will stay at Camp David for as long as it takes.
Once they leave Camp David, I expect your leaders to ensure passage of these bipartisan solutions. None of us are going to get everything we want in these deals, but it is time we stopped working separately and worked together for the American people.
It is time we, your elected officials, got to work and solved the problems that affect us all.
Thank you, may God bless the United States of America and good night.
And with that I would walk off the stage, end of speech.
My bet is, within 5 days there would be solutions.
