Breitbart correctly points the finger at Paul Ryan’s uninspiring True Cons agenda:
“The night before the midterm elections, House Speaker Paul Ryan touted “tax reform 2.0,” the economy, and the rebuilding of the United States military as the agenda accomplishments of the Republican-controlled Congress.
“Frankly, our members feel pretty good because they have a really good message … I mean look at what we’ve just been able to achieve in Congress with the President in the last two years,” Ryan told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “A record economy, the military being rebuilt, people feeling better about things … wages growing faster than they have since before the recession.”
The accomplishments of the GOP Congress, though, have been slim with Ryan in charge. Despite President Trump winning the 2016 presidential election with a populist message on healthcare and a nationalist message on immigration, Ryan and the Republican Congress failed to deliver reforms on either of the issues. …”
I was the first person in the Alt-Right to sound the alarm about this.
During the Trump Transition, I became “blackpilled” over the Cabinet picks and the agenda of the incoming Republican Congress. I made a huge deal about it at the time and was accused of being overly pessimistic because I sensed the mandate of the 2016 election was about to be squandered on mainstream conservative priorities. My tweetstorm has since been deleted.
“Ryan and McConnell want to squander Trump’s political capital by using the election as a mandate to stir up huge fights with the Left over health care, taxes and deregulating Wall Street. This could quickly consume all of 2017. …”
It consumed all of 2017 and 2018.
The Democrats spent the midterms focusing like a laser on health care. The GOP had nothing to run on except stoking fears about immigration which they had put on the backburner.

The GOP spent 2016 to 2018 using the White House and Congress to push through a “pro-Israel” wish list for Jewish donors. Among other things, they ended the Iran deal, bombed Syria and moved the US embassy to Jerusalem. As a result, 80% of Jews voted for the Democrats, which was up from 2014.
The richest House districts (median household income, 2017) in *10* states flipped from R to D this election: CO-6; GA-6; IL-6; IA-3; KS-3; MI-11; MN-3; NJ-7; PA-7; SC-1. UT-4 is likely to join, making 11. The rich turn ever more to the Democrats. https://t.co/qHSp0vSdsf

The GOP spent 2016 to 2018 fighting for pro-business policies favored by wealthy Republican suburbanites – low taxes, deregulation, welfare reform and ending Obamacare. As a result, suburbanites abandoned the GOP to vote for the Democrats all over the country.
What else did the GOP fight for in 2016 to 2018 which WAS NOT a policy favored by 1.) a wealthy Jewish donor like Sheldon Adelson or 2.) rich people in the suburbs? Can you think of ANYTHING?
