I do not trust Ryan, McConnell, McCain or Graham! I hope I am wrong but their record shows they are not strong Republican’s, they are RINO’s. Trump needs to keep his eyes wide open.
This deal comes after weeks of marathon bipartisan negotiations on Capitol Hill, with little input from the White House. A one-week temporary funding bill passed Friday averted a government shutdown over the weekend and bought more time to iron out lasting disputes between Democrats and Republicans.
As the Daily Caller reports, As per the usual arrangement, on Sunday Republicans reached a deal with Democrats to pass a $1.1 trillion spending bill that will avoid a government shutdown through September. Here’s what’s in the bill: funding for Planned Parenthood, Obamacare, the Iran deal, the National Endowment for the Arts, and sanctuary cities. Here’s what’s not in the bill: funding for President Trump’s planned border wall. Incredibly, the new omnibus even includes a measure to increase the influx of temporary workers under H-2B visas through September.
Republicans caved again. They were elected to overturn Obamacare. They haven’t, and they won’t – even the supposed planned vote this week on Obamacare repeal doesn’t repeal Obamacare. They were elected to build Trump’s border wall. They haven’t, and there are no immediate plans to do so. They were elected to defund Planned Parenthood. They haven’t. As Bloomberg points out:
Overall, the compromise resembles more of an Obama administration-era budget than a Trump one. The National Institutes of Health, for example, would see a $2 billion boost, reflecting the popularity of medical research among lawmakers. The deal includes $990 million for famine aid, along with a $1.1 billion boost for disaster recovery funds…More than 70 anti-environmental policy riders in the bill were defeated…
These politicians are all in it for themselves, not our country. TERM LIMITS, please. We have to get rid of these do-nothings.
So Obamacare gets funded. Sanctuary cities get funded. The EPA gets funded through September. Planned Parenthood gets funded. The wall does not. So if you’re asking yourself, “Why am I voting Republican?
We need to drain the swamp!
