Trump has decided to play hardball. But, was this a wise decision?

“While the American Health Care Act, legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, is a very good start, it does not yet get it right and therefore I cannot support it in its present form,” Mr. Young said in a statement.  In response,  “CLF will be terminating our lease because David Young has decided not to support President Trump and House leadership,” per Corry Bliss, Director of  the Congressional Leadership Fund.  Nearly 1.9 million dollars, spent in the last election cycle, will be withheld from the 2018 campaign. 

I love the way this declaration of war ended its statement:   “At this time  the Congressional Leadership Fund has no plans to spend any money for David Young this cycle  . . . . .   we wish him the best of luck.”   

 Clearly, President Trump believes he has a mandate for his agenda,  especially in Iowa,  where he won by a full 10% margin and took every county in the state except six.  Rep. Young won his election campaign with a 53.5% to 39.8% victory.  Turns out,  he might not need much luck.  Time will tell.
