Democrats fail to consider future consequences

One of the things that are irritating about democrats is their inability to look into the future and see possible consequences of their actions today.

For instance, Trump won the electoral college and lost the popular vote, so democrats complain about the electoral college and call for it to be abolished. So, what if this is changed, and sometime in the future a republican gains the popular vote but loses the electoral vote to a democrat? Will these same democrats celebrate the victory?

See, they do this kind of stuff all the time. We have 40 million people without healthcare. They say they have empathy, and so they create a program called Obamacare that will force the forgotten men and women to pay for it. They tell them they will not lose their healthcare insurance, and they will end up paying less.

In doing this, they fail to look into the future and think: "What if it fails?" They do not do that. They just see a problem, get emotional about it, and create a program someone else pays for. Then when it fails, they just double down on it. They raise the debt ceiling. They borrow more money from China. Like, at some point the ceiling is going to fall down and we will all suffer as a result.

That, my friends, is why Donald J. Trump was elected as the 45th president. It's time we stop gambling the future of our country for entitlement programs to help a few people out today. It's time we start considering future consequences to our actions.

I could give more examples. As the days go by perhaps I will.
