Yesterday Breitbart reported that Congressional Republicans are already meeting to block Donald Trump’s plans for his Presidency. Why are some Republicans getting ready to fight the Trump agenda? It is against the wishes of their major donors.
Let me mention just one issue. Illegal immigration would have been stopped long ago if Congress wanted to stop it. Why didn’t they? Illegal immigrants provide a cheap labor base for corporate types that hire them–corporate types join the American Chamber of Commerce and give money to Republicans. Illegal immigrants if naturalized are likely to vote Democratic, thus the Democrats have no desire to stop illegal immigration.
The article reports:
Top aides tell Breitbart News that certain members of the House Freedom Caucus are backing the Republican leadership’s agenda by supporting the re-election of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has long championed globalist donor class policies, such as the uninhibited flow of cheap foreign goods and labor across international borders through expansionist immigration policies and unrestricted free trade.
“At a certain point, we’re going to have to change our group’s name from the ‘House Freedom Caucus’ to the ‘Paul Ryan Caucus,’” one senior aide to a member of the House Freedom Caucus told Breitbart.
The aide continued:
Many members of the Freedom Caucus never opposed Ryan’s positions on trade and immigration the way their constituents do. So they’re more than happy to ignore and cast aside the policies that got Trump elected in exchange for going along with the Ryan’s policies. They’d rather keep the status quo and march lockstep with Ryan than have to stir things up by electing someone who would fight for Trump’s mandate and fight to fulfill the wishes of the American people.
In a power struggle between Donald Trump and Paul Ryan, my money is on Donald Trump. Please follow the link to the entire article. It is very enlightening. It illustrates the battle between the political establishment and American voters.
