This Omnibus $1.3-T Spending Bill, Much More of the Same
The Big Q: Why is our President afraid of a government shutdown?
Friday, our President reached out to the Democrats, gave them what they wanted (could never gotten under Hussein Obama) and sent an Olive Branch at Robert Mueller. And in return for what?
Thus, his conservative agenda was stripped away, in a pragmatic move to take the “throw him out of the WH” pressure.
Who or what forced him to sign it, that after he threatened a veto late Thursday night?
Michael Savage said Friday on his radio show, “We’ve gone from ‘The Art of the Deal’ to ‘The Art of the Squeal.”
“Where were his negotiating skills?
Why is he so complicit in this, the screwing of the American people?”
President Trump signed the bill, hours after he railed about it for having no real funding for the border Wall, thus averting a government shutdown that would have begun at Midnight Friday, and had people scrambling all over Swamp Land.
“As a matter of national security, I have signed this omnibus budget bill,” President Trump said at the “There are a lot of things that I’m unhappy about in this bill.
“There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill, but were in a sense forced [to have] if we want to build our military.
“My highest duty is to keep America safe,” he said.
“He did not say that he was upset about it because it was too big,” Mr. Savage told his listeners. “He’s upset that it didn’t give amnesty to illegal immigrant children.
“Why did he sign this horrendous, bloated budget with no wall?”
“Would you vote for Donald Trump again?”
“Would you vote for another Republican again?
“Why did the Republicans push this bill?
If Hillary Clinton had won, she would likely not have gotten that bill through Congress.
How about this, the bill funded Planned Parenthood, National Public Radio and an underground tunnel project pushed by Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.
Now, every special interest in America is now toasting the biggest budget-buster in America’s history.
The President asked for the Wall, they gave him white paint for the fence.
President Trump did not change the game as promised, he is now playing the DC Game.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the spending bill Republicans rushed through Congress a “Victory,”
A number of Republican lawmakers were critical of the bill.
“Shame, shame,” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) Tweeted. “A pox on both Houses – and parties. $1.3 trillion. Busts budget caps. Two thousand two hundred pages, with just hours to try to read it.”
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), said it “may be the worst bill I have seen in my time in Congress and the worst bill our leadership has ever allowed to come to the floor.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan said the bill was a “Victory” because of “what we’re doing for our soldiers, our sailors, our airmen, our marines and our veterans.”
I am Steaming, as are all that I have talked to today. One said he (President Trump) is not paying attention.
Have a terrific weekend.
