What to Expect in the 2018 Midterm Elections

Kevin Felts political commentatorWhat can we expect to see in the 2018 midterm elections?  Chances are democrats will be handed a stunning defeat in the 2018 midterm elections. Why? Because democrats have no platform.

Rather than addressing the economy and healthcare reform, democrats are focused solely on assassinating Trumps character.

Democrats have a chance to work with a president who wants to do what is best for the United States.  He wants to address real health care reform.  What are democrats doing? They are fighting him tooth and nail.

If a democrat president wanted to change the Affordable Health Care Act, democrats would be all for it.  However, when a Republican wants to address healthcare,  Democrats fight with everything they have.

President Trump has tried to work with democrats on various issues, and the democrats have refused.  Bring the nation to a grinding halt is not going to help them in the 2018 midterm elections.

States Going Broke

Blue states who expanded medicaid are slowly going broke. The affordable care act was a temporary fix whose sole purpose was to give democrats a short term win. Now that they are not addressing the issues brought about by the ACA, the only thing they have left is to attack Trump.

Job creation is already on Trumps side. Now he is putting China in a headlock and forcing them to address balanced trade. All we need is to keep unemployment low, and democrats will suffer a massive loss in the 2018 midterm elections.

With the jobs also comes the tax dollars.  While companies may get local tax breaks to build factories, their employees pay taxes.  The more people who have jobs, the more money that is spent, the more tax revenue is brought in.

Eventually the tax breaks to companies will expire and they will have to start paying their fair share.

Just balancing trade with China will inject $400 – $500 Billion into the economy.  Who in their right mind would vote against balancing trade with China and giving the U.S. job market a huge shot in the arm?

Health Care and the 2018 Midterm Elections

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is not sustainable.  As mentioned earlier, it was a short term fix to give democrats and the obama administration a short term win.  Republican controlled states were demonized for not expanding medicaid.  To the simple minded  would seem republicans did not care about the poor.

The honest truth is, how are states supposed to afford to expand medicaid?  The federal government would help with the medicaid expansion, then that help decreased over the years.  Eventually, states would be left holding the bill to expand medicaid.

Exactly how were the states supposed to afford to do that?  People are already fleeing high tax states such as California and New York.  Raising taxes would expedite the exodus.

Another way to look at the health care issue, the people who pay most of the taxes are leaving high tax states.  So “exactly” where is the money supposed to come from to expand medicaid?

The day is coming when our health care system will implode. States can not afford to raise taxes, nor can the federal government continue to subsidize the ACA.

Democrats have a chance to work with Trump to bring about real health care reform, and they refuse.

Fair and Balanced Trade and the 2018 Midterms

Democrats do not want fair and balanced trade because the socialist democrat agenda works best on the poor and desperate.

There is an old saying that goes something like this:  “People willingly turn to socialism, communism is done by force.”  Meaning, when given the choice, most people will accept socialism.

Socialism, when it has the good of the public has its primary focus, can do some wonderful things.  However, human greed gets in the way.

Eventually socialism either:

  • Divides the nation into two classes – the rich and the poor.
  • Or the nation turns to communism, and everyone suffers equally.

With communism we end up with a single party system and human rights are stripped.

For people to accept socialism, they must be driven to a point of desperation.

When people are working, able to buy a home, buy a car, afford to raise a family, they generally reject socialism.

For the democrat agenda of socialism to work, Trumps plan for job creation must fail.  Democrats are doing everything they can to undermine President Trump.   They have to do this to ensure people remain poor and will accept socialism.

Fair and balanced trade with China would inject somewhere around $400 – $500 billion into the U.S. economy.  This terrifies the democrats.

Tax Reform and the 2018 Midterm Elections

Democrats said if they regain control of congress they will repeal the tax breaks passed by President Trump and the Republicans.

To achieve this, democrats will use their age old tactic of divide and conquer.  Democrats running fro office will tell simple minded voters, “It’s not fair that rich person keeps their money.”  Voters will agree and vote for the democrats, which means voting for socialism.

The truth is, the United States had the highest tax rates in the developed world.  The only way we can get that money back to the U.S. is to change the tax law.

Companies bring their money back and invest it.  Those investments create jobs.  Jobs allow people to buy a home, buy a car, and to raise a family.

In other words, creating jobs undermines the democrats agenda for promoting socialism.  That is the reason why democrats oppose GOP tax reform.

2018 Midterm Final Thoughts

Democrats have a chance to work with someone who wants to do what is best for the United States and its people.  Rather than taking advantage of the situation, democrats are playing partisan politics.

Then again, the GOP has been fighting President Trump tooth and nail.  They do not want reform either.  The republican party has been a puppet to wall street for way too long.

Something has to give, and that is why the people elected President Trump.

We have not even talked about the gun control in the 2018 midterm elections.

Democrats have one platform for 2018, and that is to assassinate the character of President Trump.  This shows once again democrats are the party of hate.  The only platform democrats have is one built on lies, deceit and hate.

Because democrats have no platform, educated voters should hand them a stunning defeat in the 2018 midterm elections.
