Trump White House fed up with the Senate ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ……

Story at Politico, excerpt at the DC Drain, image from politico(.com).

ㅤ”‘The House passed health care, the House has already passed its budget, which is the first step of tax reform. The Senate hasn’t done any of that. Hell, the Senate can’t pass any of our confirmations,’ Mick Mulvaney fumed in an interview, slapping a table for emphasis. ‘You ask me if the Republican-controlled Senate is an impediment to the administration’s agenda: All I can tell you is so far, the answer’s yes.’
ㅤThe revulsion for the Senate’s age-old traditions and byzantine procedure boiled over in public repeatedly on Monday. Trump complained in front of TV cameras that the Senate is ‘not getting the job done’ and said he sees where Steve Bannon — his former chief strategist now planning to run primary challengers against incumbent Republican senators — ‘is coming from.'”
