Obama sends pallets of cash money, how much? 250-500 Billion dollars to Iran! Any screams? Anybody even aware he was going to do it?

Pres, should frame the Wall as a building infrastructure government program.
Call it the WWW project. Wall Wall Wall.

Rand Paul is taking a principled stand. The others just want to make sure their monthly check from the cartel bosses clears OK.

I’m only mildly upset. This was a symbolic vote because they did not have the votes to override a veto. If they don’t want a President to have these powers they are just going to have to pass a repeal of a power already granted.

He is a liar. Did this nitwit ever object when Bush and Obama passed dozens of their emergency bills? No.

I think the Congress can lower the President’s authority whenever they can find the votes, as it stands, the purpose of giving the executive this authority is for situations that require action that is needed faster than Congress can reasonably act. Such as when we are struck without warning.

Congress has shown that for one reason or another, they are unable to act and I would say that makes this the type of emergency that Congress had in mind when they passed the law.

And don’t forget the this is money that Congress has in fact appropriated, so the President is not usurping congressional power of the purse, again — I believe the court will find this entirely within the pages of the constitution.

FOAD, Rand. Like your father before you, you think the US Constitution is a suicide pact.

Mods, please lock this thread

The mods will never see that because you didn't address it to them.

The emergency act may be a bogus law, but it a law. Take it to the Supreme Court and get it overthrown. We have a crises on the border, the Congress won’t give the money necessary to protect, the President has every right to get the money to do so.

I guess Randy Paul doesn’t care that Congress passed the “National Emergencies Act of 1976.”

Congress also passed The Secure Fence Act of 2006, but so what? Laws and the Constitution mean nothing to our political elites. They do what they want and ignore the rest.

The President has every legal and constitutional authority to do what he's doing, but the globalist elites and their minions in Congress and the media don't care. They will bulldoze their way through anything to stop him from protecting our country.

We need several million armed patriots to March on DC , now.
