Donald Trump to Governors: We’re Giving Power Back to the States

Trump Walks Govs Assoc-APPresident Donald Trump promised a large crowd of American governors that he would work to redirect power from the federal government to the states.

“We’re going to give you back a lot of the powers that have been taken away from states and great people and great governors, and you can control it better than the federal government because you’re right on top of it,” Trump said.

The president delivered a speech at the National Governors Association meeting on Monday.

He explained that more states needed to compete for the best solutions around the country, citing the importance of citizens holding their state governors accountable.

“They know the best how to spend their dollars and how to take care of the people within each state,” Trump said, referring to state elected officials. “And states are different and people are different. So the governors are going to have a lot more decision-making ability than they have right now.”

That was how The Constitution intended government to work in the first place in order to prevent other words.....obama!



Take that liberal fascists!

two repeals would make it happen. REPEAL the 14th and 17th amendments.

simple... if the word REPEAL wasn't a pejorative among lawmakers/politicians.  

What Does Pejorative Mean ??

Just Asking

as a noun or adjective;

a word expressing contempt or disapproval.

... maybe it would have been better to say - if repeal wasn't a dirty word among lawmakers/politicians. 

in the land of infinite laws, repealing a law (or constitutional amendment) is rare. when's the last time we saw any law repealed??  'lawmakers' obviously have a strong aversion to the idea.

I don't think we need to start repealing parts of our national constitution .  it sets a bad precedent


do you realize that the 14th amendment made states subordinate to the federal government?   ...and that was contrary to the core intent of the original design the founders created and the 1st 100 years of our country's form of government?

so, if it has more than proven to be a bad mistake - repealing it would still be bad precedent? A poisonous amendment should remain in place because admitting a horrible mistake and correcting it is bad precedent?

and the 17th amendment removed any remaining influence on federal laws the states had left after the 14th amendment made states subordinate to fed/gov. It made the states completely powerless in the fed/gov lawmaking process.

the stated goal is 'giving power back to the states'


thanx Jea and Manny

--- and no disrespect for Lois intended at all;

I think your opinion is valid and I somewhat share it I think, in that I don't want amending the constitution more to become common. I just want the poison wrongfully added to the recipe removed, and then left alone. At least for quite a while to allow the corrected recipe time to have an effect.

But we've already seen what the poisonous amendments have produced, and it's exactly what the founders/Locke/others knew and said 300 years ago. We can believe our eyes and admit we predictably ruined the recipe and correct our obvious mistakes.... can't we?



I only hope that giving power back to the states includes giving back property taken by the Socialists under the Antiquities Act of 1906.  The property belongs to the states, if you support the constitution, along with the natural resources on and under the ground.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
