Can we get leaders that actually care about details and lawmaking?

Here's something you should remember when you hear Trump/GOP start crying about the level of foreign aid that's in the budget/stimulus bill. This is why it's a bad idea to have a President who's never held a "job" that went beyond giving orders and doing PR stunts. And by the way, there might be no real policy reason Trump is throwing a monkey-wrench into the budget/stimulus bill. Like most things, it may be simple spite. And as Trump hides in his bunker and then runs off to Florida vs doing the actual work of legislatin', millions of Americans are seeing their unemployment benefits expire on Saturday. Happy Holidays, all!

Knowing policy might not get you much air time on AM radio or cable news, but it's kind of important if you're in the lawmaking business. Maybe we should care about that when we consider our votes. Just a thought.
