1) From Pat:
I am disheartened by the new health plan. Rand Paul’s group plan is better. I fear Paul Ryan is taking over and will finally take his axe to Medicare, his dream for years. SS will be next. I do not trust him!! The budget is cutting programs for the poor, HOME in TN, meals on wheels, etc. I thought useless programs would be cut such as rabbits’ sleep cycles, dogs on a treadmill, you get my message.
I’m getting scared. I wish our President had brought Newt on board to identify waste and the swamp. Trump’s team is not savvy to what goes on. Your thoughts? I highly respect your opinion and you haven’t been wrong yet. I’m a Jersey transplant living in TN
DML: 3 comments…
(1) I somewhat agree with your assessment of his team. When I was exploring, I was once asked who I would surround myself with. I answered, “An equal mix of insiders and outsiders.” Without the insiders, it is hard to understand how the D.C. playbook works. Without the outsiders, it’s impossible to change the playbook. That said, look on the bright side. Although Newt is not on his team, he does offer advice. Don’t forget, Jeff Sessions is on the team — he’s been around for a while. In short, Trump has made some bad hires over the years — I have met some of those hires, and they are doozies. But, he eventually cuts bait. Don’t lose faith, Pat, I foresee Trump doing a few “drop and adds” in the months to come.
(2) Meals on Wheels is not being cut in the sense it will no longer be around. One of the supporting groups of the program is being cut heavily, but the MOW program will still be there for seniors. As for the healthcare bill, I too think it is bad, but Trump promised revisions, so let’s see what it looks like in the end. Have faith. If it’s a disaster in the end, then we’ll get all over the president and demand changes.
(3) I don’t think President Trump likes Ryan either, I think he’s putting on an act and pretending to like him. Why? … only time will tell us.
2) From Sabrina:
DML, I keep seeing posts and getting questions like ” well who is paying for Trump’s golfing and trips,” then they say the tax payers. He’s using government money to do this. But yet he is going to donate his salary. Please help me to have an answer. Is he using government money for this and is he still using his private plane? Thanks. I love your news. Keep doing what your doing. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
DML: President Trump travels on Air Force One, rightfully so.
Rumors are, he has visited golf courses 7 times since taking office. But the truth is there are only 3 confirmed rounds of golf played, two rounds of which were with the prime minister from Japan. The other visits to golf courses appear to be for meetings of some kind … there is no proof he played golf. He may have hit a bucket of balls or two while there, but who cares? Really.
3) From Jennie:
I just left my mom’s house and she received your birthday card. I am sitting in my card writing you and for 2 days in a row DML you have made me cry. Your good heart is who makes you a great role model and someone that we all trust. Thank you again!! I loved seeing her smile when she asked me to guess who she got a card from. Guess what your card is front and center in front of all the other cards!
Thank you Dennis, Mary and Harlan!!
DML: Hope your mom had a great birthday. Side note… the credit goes all to Mary. She came to me and said you have to sign this card. She told me how you sent it to us for your mom. What a great daughter you are. God bless!
4) From Don:
DML, I been around, ya know. Im 73, a Vietnam vet, and I been to a few gang fights. Without my gang. Just wanted you to know that your tribute/remembrance of Gloria reminded me in a way of when I watched Walter Cronkite in t.v. back in ’63 when he announced the death of JFK. For me to feel that and compare you in that light speaks highly of you. That level of honesty and heart on a news piece, unfortunately, is rare. Best wishes. Keep up the good work.
Don E. Webster
DML: Mr. Webster, thank you for your service.
