It sure seems like the GOP does not like the government to to anything

It sure seems like the GOP does not like the government to to anything

From the New York Times - The Morning newsletter today.

  • When Republicans controlled the White House and Congress in 2017 and 2018, the only major legislation they passed was a tax cut, and the only other big bill that came close was a repeal of Obamacare, without a replacement.
  • When Donald Trump ran for re-election, the party did not write a campaign platform.
  • During Barack Obama’s presidency, and now Biden’s, Republicans have almost uniformly opposed significant legislation, be it on health care, climate change, Wall Street regulation or economic stimulus.

It does seem like the only things the GOP does do is make it more difficult for the federal government to do stuff, other than cut taxes and try to make it more difficult to get health care.
