White House Messaging

I was never a fan of the Obama administration's programs/policies, but it cannot be denied that the messaging that came out of that White House was as if it were coming from one voice. It didn't matter if what they were telling us was a lie, the entire administration all told the same lie. If you didn't want to use the preferred terminology you were gone.

If I could make any suggestion to the Trump administration it would be to try emulate the previous administration and speak with one voice. Time after time it has become apparent that Trump White House has to stop stepping on their message. It wouldn't matter if the message would come via a Presidential tweet, a Presidential interview, the daily press briefing, or a press release, make the message clear and concise.

I liked Sean Spicer and am sorry that he felt it necessary to resign. Changing the White House communications director or press secretary will not change the underlying problem unless there is the will to all speak with one voice and that guidance must come from the top.

The time has come for President Trump to make sure the messaging from his administration is with one voice.

Fake Votes, Fake News

HRH Obama and the Democrats lied to us for a year prior to the enactment of the 'Un'Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare

With well over 50 votes between the Senate and The House Of Representatives in the past three or four years to cleanly repeal ObamaCare, while HRH Obama was President, the Congress was supposedly sending a message to voters in America that they were ready to get rid of ObamaCare. Now that they actually have someone in the White House who would sign the repeal of ObamaCare, they are refusing to vote on a clean repeal, insisting instead on keeping much of ObamaCare.

In addition to keeping most of the taxes in ObamCare, one of the more idiotic things that they insist on keeping is the provision which lets people get insurance when they have a pre-existing condition. It's like forcing an insurance company to cover you for an auto accident after you have an accident or life insurance after you die.

Fake news is usually just a fake story with little or no consequences. Fake votes are our elected leaders essentially lying to us with consequences effecting millions of lives. Very disappointing!!
