True, but at what cost?


We will have lost 2/3 of the federal government...and put Pelosi and Schumer back in charge.
We drove away a core part of our base -- suburban women -- for who knows how long. Yes we got the Court, but in the process we blew up a century's worth of Senate protocols that will certainly come back and bite us in the ass.

As for Trump's legislative accomplishments, kiss them goodbye. Tax cuts? Gone. Govt regulations will be slapped back on at unprecedented levels. Defense spending will be slashed. His legacy will be his stupid half-built wall. In return we will get Obamacare on steroids, a multi-trillion dollar climate change debacle and God knows what else.

Key principles of the GOP platform like limited spending, free trade, immigration, etc. are trashed. No idea where we go from here.

Seems like an awfully big price to pay for a few justices.
