Democrats Spark Fierce Debate as They Try to Block President Trump's Cabinet Picks
Jonas Max Ferris: This is actually hurting the Democrats. If you let the Republicans go ahead with their policy proposals, it could be bad and then the Democrats win elections the next couple of years. Thus, the obstruction is not really helping the Democrats at all.
Gary B. Smith: I don't like when Congress gets acting. When that happens, they usually inhibit private citizens from growth. The real changes come from the bureaucracy and cabinet heads.
John Layfield: Congress needs to get working for the American people because I just don't believe that people are working for the American people at all right now. They're working for themselves. Look at what has been happening the last sixteen years in the country. You first had the Democrats blocking everything under Bush and then you had the Republicans blocking everything under Obama. This divisiveness is driving me crazy. It has to stop!
Deneen Borelli: All the Senate Democrats can do now is block and stall. They can't prevent Trump's nominees from getting confirmed. They're really misleading their followers with false promise and false hope.
Jessica Tarlov: Trump will get his cabinet. Dems are making this a worthwhile confirmation process by asking these nominees hard questions that the will make sure the cabinet members are on alert with regards to the Democrats and the American People. That's vital to the success of America.
Protesters Chant 'Death to America' in Iran as Trump Vows to Win Vetting Case
Jonas Max Ferris: How great is our country? We had a court that checked the President's power which is unheard of in Iran.
Gary B. Smith: These seven countries came from the Obama administration. The President is supposed to protect the homeland and the court's ruling does not help with that at all. Why the court is stepping in, I have no idea.
John Layfield: They have been chanting that since 1970. They do not like us as a country. You cannot have a country wide ban. If you cannot vet someone, they should not be allowed into our country.
Deneen Borelli: President Trump has the authority and the right to do what he did. He is just looking out for the safety of our country. All one has to do is look at that video clip. This is what Trump was talking about.
Jessica Tarlov: This is incredibly complicated. Iran chants Death to America regardless of whatever we do. This is what goes on between these two countries.
New Debate of the Future of Unions
Jonas Max Ferris: There has to be a federal standard. We should all go right to work. There's enough a federal safety net where you can't exploit employees
Gary B. Smith: Right to work is better for the economy. All that it is doing is giving workers a choice with their life.
John Layfield: Employees have a right to form union, but there should also be a right to not want to join the union. No one should be strong-armed into joining one which is neat to see so many right-to-work states.
Deneen Borelli: The momentum is going in the direction for right to work states. Right to work is the right way to go for our economy and economic growth.
Jessica Tarlov: This is not better for economy. Poverty is higher, infant mortality,, and many other categories show where right to work states are behind other states.
Gary B. Smith: TTC up 20 percent in 2017
John Layfield: GILD UP 20 percent in a year
Jonas Max Ferris: IPAC up 15 percent a year
