The well-wishing and a half-hearted overture to unity lasted about 8 hours, maybe less.

The GOP representatives and senators already setting up their position to oppose the President's agenda, the Democratic agenda. It's kinda cool really since Trumps not around to foul the air. With republicans it's ALWAYS about what's best for the wealthy. If they smell a tax increase for the top 10% or a fair shake for the working class they go to their standard anti-socialist/communist diatribe. But to be clear. It's American (and international) billionaire donors and their corporations which guide their conscience.

I would like Democrats to steer the conversation toward value for cost. A common sense, check-book-balancing sort of concept. I believe the American people, at this point in time, may be able to understand the conversation when it's laid out like: How valuable is the statistic of having more billionaires per capita? Does it make for a more powerful military? A more secure economy? A healthier society? Better healthcare? Better quality of life? Better highways and bridges? More secure elections and better government? Does it make your neighborhood more sociable? Does it help the fellow down the street whose wife is in the hospital more likely to receive your offer of assistance, your voice of concern? Does it make your relationship with your family stronger, more loving? Do your children have a real chance at higher quality education?

From the political perspective, it's downright "Bill Clinton" simple. Give the people a chance to weigh the facts and they'll ALWAYS make the best choice. We're basking under a new sun. These are Democrat's moments to outline the facts and provide the choices. There will be NO quarter given by the republicans. Nor should they receive any since already their tireless propaganda machine cranks out their dishonest and disingenuous spin on the issues.

The worst person Trump inflicted on this country was Betsy Devos. The worst person "W" inflicted on us was her brother, Erik Prince.

1. Republicans have rediscovered the deficit.

It's already shown up in Pete Buttigieg's hearing for Transportation Secretary. "But how do you plan to pay for these improvements to infrastructure?" "That's for another committee to decide," said Mayor Pete. Good. Don't give the GOP an inch.

2. Pete's quick and concise responses to their tactics are a real asset to clear communication.
