"When the people you serve have a vested interest in weakening the federal government, having a potential traitor in the White House is a solution, not a problem. Right now, Republicans are more interested in inflicting massive pain on the average American to gift the rich with more money. I can only assume the calculation here is that when we get closer to the midterms, Republicans will "suddenly" discover they can't support Trump and this, combined with the massive voter suppression they're working on, will keep them in power. But as our own Jeremy Fassler explained yesterday and Krugman reiterates today, the Republican Party has become a clear and present danger to the continuance of the United States as a stable and sovereign power. They either need to remember that they work for more than just the rich or they need to be utterly destroyed as a political force in America."
