Ryan & McConnell Worked With Pelosi & Schumer To Fracture POTUS Trumpís Support With Omnibus Bill
DCWhispers ^ | March 23, 2018

Posted on 03/24/2018 6:56:54 PM PDT by MarvinStinson

President Trump signed the 1.2 trillion dollar Omnibus bill today with open frustration over both the process and the product of that bill. Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer heaped praise on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for their help in what Pelosi called a great bill for the American worker.

What wasn’t said was how the Republican and Democrat leadership worked together to force POTUS Trump’s hand and create a voter backlash they hope will fracture Mr. Trump’s base of support among millions of Americans.

“How could he sign this bill?” said one Trump supporter on Twitter.

“WTF??? This was the opposite of MAGA,” said another.

“Trump just gave 1.2 trillion to the swamp,” was another comment.

If the above reactions represent the feelings of a majority of Trump supporters it might very well be the first real crisis of support for the President – an outcome that is exactly what Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer were hoping for.

Do not know it to be true...

There is a repeal mechanism in a 1974 Budget Act statute.

https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/STATUTE-88/pdf/STATUTE-88-Pg297.pdf

(Start at pages 36-37 of the download, under Title X, Sections 1100-)

Congress has 45 days to submit items for rescission, and to vote.

Certain old time Freepers have bought into this scam by the uniparty. Others whiners are newbie trolls. Trump had to sign this bill to fund and fix our military. Priority 1: defend the nation. I doubt he’ll take this lying down though. He does have tools at his disposal to dump some of the spending. Some of those have been discussss here on Free Republic.

K-Street wanted the Tax Cuts.

K-Street wanted most of this spending.

Trump needs to try to educate the American People that Ditch and PRyno, et. al. are not working in their best interests.

Trump doesn’t have much leverage over either NeverTrumper, especially as anti-GOPeers ave not had success at the ballot box since 2016.

Well, at least it was only 1.2 trillion. If Dems had control of Congress, it’d be 3 trillion! See, this is why we have to keep voting GOP! Do you purist FReepers really want to let the Dems take Congress? < /S >

Maybe we need another special counsel to investigate the malfeasance and corruption of the (4 )congressional conspirators who wasted the resources of the Congress on their hidden activities.

How long did it take to write the 2300 page bill while deceiving the American citizens (and the other members of Congress) of what they were actually doing? Isn't this a tremendous waste of taxpayer money?

They both use your money to buy support from "Representatives".

Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell belong in the Ninth Circle of Hell.

Treachery. Betrayers of trust.

Round 4 is named Judecca after Judas Iscariot, the apostle who betrayed Jesus with a kiss. They should join Judas there.

This is NOT in any shape or form NEWS!
This was expected from the snakes in DC.
POTUS continues to excel in his support. HE is one of the
few 'congress critters' who has AMERICA's best
interest at heart. THIS is the reason he was placed in
the OO. The BEST MAN for the job, IMHO

A BIG BRONX CHEER for the lower forms of DC Swamp life!

The swamp is petrified of government shutdown. It would not come close to impacting anything in my life.
