If Congress doesn’t have the willpower to regulate its spending—and year after year, it has proven that it doesn’t—then all of us as citizens must act, and hopefully vote, accordingly.
What makes Trump look worse before the election: trying to get a deal with no success, or pointing out that the other side doesn’t want a deal for political reasons and pulling out of talks?
