Bossie: The Hill: Establishment will pay at polls if Congress kills Trump's agenda

This week marks the ninth anniversary of the enactment of the federal government’s infamous $700 billion bank bailout known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program. From the moment President George W. Bush signed the bill into law on Oct. 3, 2008, politics in America would never be the same. Our government’s willingness to bailout our nation’s leading financial institutions, the most wealthy and powerful among us, at hardworking taxpayer’s expense, kickstarted a new era of politics in America that started with the formation of the Tea Party in 2009 and culminated with the election of the ultimate political outsider, Donald Trump, as president in 2016. Fast forward to October 2017 and the movement continues with more ferocity than ever, because it seems Washington still hasn’t gotten the message.

The 2008 bailout serves as an exclamation point for the forgotten men and women in America, exemplified by the working folks in the Rust Belt, that Washington politicians in both parties were no longer looking out for their interests. The election of radical leftist and big government advocate President Obama only exacerbated the problem as the anti-Washington coalition of voters began to take shape in 2009. At the time of the bailout and Obama’s first election, our national debt stood at a once unthinkable $10 trillion.

When the ObamaCare nightmare deemed and passed Congress, at the time led by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, in March 2010 using questionable means, that was enough to pave the way for the election of change agents senators like Mike Lee and Rand Paul, with Ted Cruz following them shortly thereafter. While those victories were consequential, the Washington establishment was still determined to operate business as usual. Republicans went ahead and nominated Mitt Romney, who couldn’t appeal to the growing anti-Washington voters in the electoral vote rich states that mattered. Congress continued to pass unreadable spending bills worth billions and billions of dollars with little meaningful debate.
