Investment expert Dr. Mark Skousen shares his take on why President Trump and the Republicans have failed to pass any meaningful legislation, even with a Majority.

??When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.?

— Proverbs 29:2

Over 2,000 wealthy investors and concerned citizens are meeting here at the Paris Resort in Las Vegas for FreedomFest. A major issue here is why Republicans have failed to pass the legislation they were elected to do — repeal and replace ObamaCare, reform an overloaded bureaucracy and cut taxes.

Back in 2009-2010, the Democrats faced a similar situation. The Democrats controlled both houses and Obama was president. They had razor-thin majorities, yet they were able to push through two expensive pieces of legislation: The Affordable Care Act (which was anything but affordable) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (which simply raised prices and reduced choice — not a single community bank has been created since 2010).
