Trump tweeted, “Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before. We love and need our Military and gave them everything — and more. First time this has happened in a long time. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!”

There is one thing the idiot RINOs can be sure of. The Dims will campaign on the increasing deficit, and while keeping their sheeple in ignorance will blame all the deficit on the recent tax changes and not their spending demands it took to get this bill passed.

Every bit of “bipartisanship” the RINOs play with the Dims are acts of entrapping the RINOs into the next stage of attacks against them by the Dims.

It’s a loser to cut budgets. Every time it is tried the communists take control of DC.

When has it been tried?

These tweets are complete and utter hogwash! He had a choice don’t sign, shut down the government and instill fiscal discipline or sign, continuing to sign away future generations wealth all in the name of the Red White and Blue.

He chose the latter. Our President is a fiscal liberal. Is he this something folks can come to grip with.

Disappointing on a number of levels.

Lose the politically correct BS and that alone will free up tens of billions, on top of increase morale.

But ‘Mad Dog’ and the current CIC don’t really have an appetite to do that apparently.

Hope for our sake we can find enough buyers for the additional Treasuries coming to market. there will be consequences for the average Joe and Jane - bank on it.

I appreciate his Twitter cheerleading, but he's really full of sh!t. History shows that one-party rule in Congress and the White House is always a recipe for fiscal irresponsibility.

It's ironic that the Federal government would probably be more fiscally responsible right now if Hillary Clintonhad won the 2016 election.

Everything in the government is bloated, even the military. Defense spending has been in the control of contractors who bribe congressmen for decades. Before any government department gets more funding, it should have to present a detailed account of how it is spending what it gets now. I don’t think any of them can do that. They don’t even know how the money is being spent.

George Bush let the same thing happen when the Republicans had control of Congress. They spent like Democrats. It will never end.

He chose one of two prudent paths. One path was to get some of the things he wanted and bide time until the GOPE can be conquered and the Dems are arrested. The other was to veto and be overridden with what such a majority would have wanted, without his say.

I would have chosen to veto, but the situation with his own party and the stupid Russian investigation really has tied him up a lot. He wants to get SC justices through and he either needs his party or the Democrats to get them through. Tell us which terrible side you would want to get your picks into power.

I don’t agree with his choice. He could have played hard ball and even making nice his next nominations will go through hell. Unfunded liabilities are 300-400 trillion dollars. His adding to this helps with our economic collapse. Was there even funding for the wall?

I need to go find where in the budget our wall is funded.

That is true. And as Rand Paul said yesterday, why are we spending billions in foreign aid on countries that hate us and burn our flag?

Yes, that is truly heartbreaking because it also involves so much loss of life and pain for our military and their families. And what good has come from any of these misadventures in Muslim countries? None, and worse, it opened the floodgates to bring Muslims into the US. That is the real threat to our country; the enemy within. Nothing we do overseas matters, because we allowed Islam here.

I understand your point, but I don’t think this was the “Hill” to die on. I know it sounds awful, but we’ve had these defecits for years and will continue for now. We need to ensure Military is well funded, next is immigration (DACA, the Wall, end chain migration, end diversity lottery etc) and that’s going to be a fight. Perfectly fine with shutting down and going to the mat on that now. Next drain the swamp, Continue to expose the politicization of the fed agencies, including Intel and LE, take that down and THEN draw a line in the sand on budget and spending. Oh, in the meantime keep putting conservatives on the fed courts.

' DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!'

Sounds like he's kidnapped. Or we are fighting over crumbs.

He got no money for a fence/wall. So two more years will roll away without it. $300 billion in new spending and Trump didn’t hold out for $8 billion for a wall? I love the guy but I don’t get it.
