Suggested Agenda for Ryan-Trump Meeting

Doug Sachtleben - May 11th, 2016

Topics for tomorrow’s meeting between Speaker Ryan and Donald Trump

  • Taxes – They should be cut and no one should “end up paying more.”
  • Trade – Stop the threats of massive tariffs that will lead to trade wars that harm US businesses and consumers.
  • Obamacare – No more waffling about government paying for it. Repeal and Replace with free-market solutions. Stop Medicaid expansion
  • Debt – Instead of Trump’s reckless fiscal policies, commit to real cuts in spending that finally shrink government and debt.
  • Entitlement Reform – If Donald Trump won’t lead on this, then Congress should.
  • Regulations – Agree to massive cuts in costly job-killing regulations like those pushed by the EPA.
  • Integrity – Trump is Lucy and Ryan is Charlie Brown.  Our advice to Ryan?  Don’t try to kick the ball.
