Trump promises health care plan will be cheaper than ObamaCare

But Republicans have yet to agree on a replacement bill, and existing Republican plans - like one drafted by Rep. Tom Price of Georgia, who was nominated as Trump's secretary of health and human services - have yet to be scrutinized by the budget office.

On Friday, Trump will be sworn in as the new USA president, after shocking the world just several weeks ago, as most polls and experts predicted that the billionaire would lose elections. A 29-point email questionnaire (the 100-Day Plan of Action survey) sent out last week by Team Trump gives an insight into his policy intentions.

Nobody's ever been a less popular president on day one than President Trump. He was elected in a free and fair election in the freest country in the entire world. Asked if the president's high unfavorables will affect what the Senate passes in the coming weeks, Iowa Sen. "No task is too great, no dream too large".

The newfound Democratic enthusiasm for obstructionism - thanks to a few Electoral College votes in the Midwest - led Democrats to lurch out in opposition to the appointment of Sen.

"Vote sanity and stability". As candidate, Trump promised that he would bring back those coal mining and manufacturing jobs that were vanishing during the Recession.

One factor is the Republican brand. Democrats need to become more comfortable stretching the limits of their power and less inclined toward unrequited bipartisanship.

Trump will be sworn in with historically low approval ratings, but he has dismissed the polls as unreliable. "That is my hope", Brady told VOA correspondent Greg Flakus. Many Republicans are more hesitant, anxious that the enormous cost of a large-scale infrastructure plan could balloon the budget deficit.

In any case, now that the Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, it will be hard for them to blame the Democrats for the country's problems.

The new Senate Democratic leader, Charles Schumer of NY, also cautioned the president-elect.

The list of boycotters is online and, if needed, we have two years to influence their decision to discredit a president of the United States, and thus they should not be re-elected as representatives because they disgraced the country, as well as themselves. By contrast, 59 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners say they will fall, 27 percent expect they will stay the same and just 10 percent say they will rise. What's to stop Trump from doing whatever he wants? Nancy Pelosi has been the ranking Democratic leader for 6 terms, as has second-ranking Democrat Steny Hoyer. Anxious liberals are watching with trepidation, fearful that Trump is just the beginning of worse to come, desperate for a comeback strategy that can work.

Pochettino perturbed by Spurs tunnel vision
It is interesting to note that reports are now linking City with moves for Spurs' full-backs Walker and Rose. "They are brilliant. Since that first league meeting eight years ago, Guardiola has won the lot, over and over and over again. "Now I don't know".

"It is incumbent upon him to start building bridges to the almost 70 million Americans who voted for someone else". "The worst thing his opponents can do is pretend his presidency is unreal".

There are some expectations that Trump will try to tackle the political divide in his inaugural address. They probably figure he'll just go along with whatever they say.

Chris Jacobs, a conservative health policy analyst who once worked for Republicans on Capitol Hill, said the Trump administration could, by regulation, mitigate some of the effects on insurance markets and premiums described by the budget office. "Republicans have always been resolved to defeat proposals I've put forward or supported", Obama wrote, citing equal pay, immigration reform and tougher gun laws as proposals axed by the GOP.

Polling data suggests Trump has work to do. The country elected Trump, and Trump supporters are certainly not the ones getting dewy-eyed over the thought of Obama leaving office. In his 2008 victory speech, Obama famously declared that "We have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states".

Democratic President John Kennedy, meanwhile, had the best transition period for stocks, which rose 8.5 percent between his November 1960 election and January 1961 inauguration.

For six years, Democrats bleated about Republicans throwing sand in the gears of Congress, blocking an agenda that would have transformed America into a progressive utopia. The two Senate leaders are both less well-known and less well-liked, with 25 percent holding a favorable opinion of new Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and 20 percent favorable toward Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

Congressional Republicans may or may not stand up to President Trump.

Time Magazine named Trump Person of the Year for 2016 after his election victory. "Well, let's fix it for the benefit of the American public", Johnson said on CNBC.

Most of us - and it is most of us - now face a double challenge.

Americans see repeal-and-replace as more likely to happen than any other Trump campaign promise tested in the poll, with 82 percent saying they think it's at least somewhat likely.
