How is this a victory?
Spending is out of control in Congress, and not only has Trump not managed to reign it in - when many were counting on him to impose some sort of financial discipline, or at least change the prevailing mentality - but now, there’s a “new acceptance” of high spending again, just what the country DOESN’T need.
Drain the Swamp doesn’t include bringing sanity back to government spending. Luckily, I should be dead before the US defaults on its debt and can’t borrow anymore, and the riots and civil war starts.
No. MR. PRESIDENT
This was a bad deal for America
What about the wall???
Mr. President - the Congress is unable to cut costs. You have spoken forcibly against bloated government spending and the need to work toward a mean and lean fiscal policy. As the Congress cannot help in this regard, it is up to your Government in place to take on the challenge. Order an immediate 10% cut for all departments and agencies other than military and law enforcement. Not in ten years, but in one year with the clock starting today. I say excuse the military, but we well know that the Pentagon is bloated and there much waste there, tell Mattis to cut it to the bone, set the example. Let the Administration show the way! Thank you, Sir!
Look at how your House & Senate members voted on this PofS. Become a party activist, not a political wallflower waiting for a better invite to the dance.
The only solution to this District of Corruption mess is ARTICLE V - IMHO that is where we should direct our enegies.
My former party:
ha ha ha
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.
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.
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.
The uniparty is back.
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.
The newest MEME is Republicans don’t care about Deficit Spending, making it sound like the Democrats do.
Now that there is a two year deal (like it or not), it’s time to get the Trump Agenda moving ahead.
How about these Politicians spend their time securing our Borders and cutting back Government Spending? Yeah, right.
I had hoped that the Pres would stand up for U.S. Disgraceful failure and betrayal by all who were participants in this.
Why did a majority of House Democrats vote against it? Objectively, the bill seems to stink, but you always have to assume, if Democrats oppose something, it must be good for America.
The lack of responses thus far indicates that everyone here knows that this sludge deal sucks, and is anti-Contituional and anti-American.
Compromises are made by the compromised.
Not good. Should have vetoed.
The military will remember this, as they will be asked to protect our nation in this evolving coup.
