    My point is Democrats campaigned on changing Obamacare also. Now they do nothing but say no and don't propose ideas. A good number of Republicans want to keep parts of Obamacare, some of the main components. Dems should seize that opportunity and stand up in favor of the reforms they want then negotiate to a resolution.

    Just read an article that said wealthy Russians purchased apartments in some of Trumps buildings. They were not business partners. Not sure how this will be a problem.

    Your points are currently valid. The U.S. Government has the means to pressure China to put the clamps on N. Korea. The question is how much more of the North leader will be tolerated before they do that?

It is clear that a good chunk of Obamacare will remain intact regardless of how it gets spun by the Republicans. Democrats should be recommending changes and bragging about their ideas loudly, ala Trump. The final product is going to have Obamacare as part of it whatever they want to claim or call it. Dems should be in position to say that the final product happened in large part because of what they accomplished when they first established Obamacare.
    They keep dropping the ball instead of seizing the moment. Incredibly frustrating. It's like their strategy is to wait for Trump to mess up and he is proving to be a good at fumbling the ball and still recovering the fumble. They need to be on attack pouncing his policies instead of standing around and whining. Disappointing to say the least.

    Additional info ... Trump doesn't own the buildings. He allowed his name to go on the buildings through a licensing agreement. His company served as an advisor to the developer of the complex. He did earn commissions off the apartments sold to Russians. Almost $100 million invested by Russians.

    Stop it. Nothing to see.

    Russians seemed to have kept POTUS out of bankruptcy this century.

    What year were these purchases made? I believe at least one of the larger purchases was in 2005. So the Russians knew to try and buy Donald Trump off because he would be President in 2017?

    I'm more worried about the DIRECT buy off from Foreign Countries thru the Clinton Foundation. Where is the outrage?

    Do you think Trump could be influenced by making millions of dollars off of Russians in the years prior to running? It is not a matter of bribery but a matter of his judgment being influenced and how is it impacting what he is doing now

    What does anything that happened with the Clinton Foundation have to do with making a judgment about this situation with Trump?

    Are we really that afraid of the Russians? Can we not handle the Russians?
