    The healthcare plan he said would be available day one when he campaigned in 2016?

    There is a long list of things not done that he promised would be ready in 2 weeks. It's a stalling tactic in interviews to change a subject he doesn't like.

    This was the most noteworthy comment, I think. The administration's take away from losing the DACA case was that you can basically do unconstitutional stuff by executive action and wait for the courts to deal with it (which may take months if not years), by which time your successor wont be able to undo it without following the relevant statutes. They've already refused to grant new DACA waivers, in defiance of the court.

    So you are saying DACA was unconstitutional?

    Hold on now, you have to read between the lines - he meant to say

    I'll have our "Shovel Ready" healthcare program ready in two weeks.

    Yes, the graves that are Trump's healthcare policy are in fact shovel ready.

    I thought that was "if you like your plan you can keep it." Still don't get it, dude. Maybe it makes sense for ODS sufferers.

    That’s what’s so maddening. He should have had a team of lawyers drafting legislation starting the day after the election. That way he could have had bills introduced the day after Inauguration Day. Not the mess we have now of “just a lot of talk and a badge.”

    Well if you do that its on paper and it can be criticized and examined. The plan that you are about to drop any day now? That thing is flawless! Kind of like Guns & Roses' Chinese Democracy. That album was a legendary magnum opus for like 15 years while it was teased or considered unfinishable, and then it actually came out and it sucked.

    True, but you have a bill to be filed and get the call rolling with legislation and not “we have a great bill...one of the best coming” nonsense.

    You're assuming here this is a person or party interested in governing and policy though
