GOP caves in deal to fund government through September
Congressional negotiators reached a deal to fund the U.S. government through the end of September according to officials.
The new $1.5 trillion agreement will extend a one-week spending resolution set to expire on May 5th
There is nothing in the agreement to fund President Trump’s border wall, but there is $1.5 billion for other border security.
$12.5 billion in money for defense spending is also reportedly in the deal.
The concessions to the minority party democrats are concerning. Republicans agreed to continue paying Obamacare subsidies while halting funding cuts to Planned Parenthood and Sanctuary Cities.
Democrats seem pleased with the deal.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praised the proposal, saying in a statement “we have made significant progress improving the omnibus bill.”
“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people, and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement.
The bill will go before both houses this week for a vote.
Republican leadership continues to act like they are the Democrat Lite Party.Some have called Republicans and Democrats members of the UNI-PARTY(One party with fake differences differentiating them).
RYAN continues to how why he should not be leader.
This will take some time, despite the yammering masses that are calling for the heads of those republicans who fail to vote conservatively. The voters need to challenge those republicans who continue to vote democrat-lite and throw them out of office if they fail to comply with our wishes. This professional political class has got to go. Tenured representation in DC is death to individual liberty. J.C. Watt was the elected representative from the 6th Congressional District in Kansas and he was elected for one purpose and once accomplished he “retired”. Mr. Watts knew that remaining in the heart of the beast would only corrupt his principles and ultimately himself. Ryan and his ilk have been here too long already, yet their districts fail to hold them accountable, which is why the people are starting to think “term limits.”
Understanding the Eleventh Commandment of William F. Buckley, Jr. seems to have disappeared along with reason in this generation.
The steady march of progressivism has taken place over the past 125 years, yet we expect it to be halted and reversed overnight. This is naiveté.
Evil never stops, so Liberty must defend herself in each succeeding generation, or else it disappears.
We never came so close to Liberty’s disappearance as we came in the last administration.
