Paul Ryan warns of post-election border wall funding fight
Washington Examiner ^ | October 08, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio

(Speaker Paul) Ryan said lawmakers have not determined how to resolve differences over the wall funding. A House Homeland Security appropriations bill provides $5 billion in funding, but the Senate version includes $1.6 billion. ...the Senate will require the help of at least nine Democrats to pass spending measures thanks to the filibuster rule.

I think that some Kabuki theater has been agreed to behind the scenes, to provide cover for Democrats to provide a few votes for increased wall funding, after the election.

The baseline budget for the wall seems to be $1.6 billion per year, but there are serious, well justified proposals to use $5 billion for specific additional miles of barrier, and an impressive technology program addition. Studies have been done and accepted by Congress, and the early wall contracting efforts have been well done. They are ready on all fronts to ramp up the pace of construction.

There is an outside chance we could get to 59 or 60 if there’s a big red wave. If that happens the wall will be built before 2020.

I agree. We have “gofundit” pages for everyone who gets a hangnail - let’s have one for the wall. If those useless SOB’s in Congress won’t fund it, we-the-people will. Are you listening, President Trump? Time to get creative!

I don’t give a rat’s @$$ what Reprehensible Ryan has to say.

Let him go wash the windows on Air Force One and Armour All the tires while he’s at it.

That’s about all he’s good for.

In 2020 we have to start seriously draining the swamp.
Ryan, Flake, Corker, Hatch and 30 Cheap Labor Express congressmen are quitting. McCain is dead.
McSallycain will replace Flake so that’s a wash.
Hatch will be replaced by Romney, I’d say that’s a loss.
The only gain will be Blackburn instead of Corker.

Graham and Alexander voted for Rubio’s Gang of Amnesty and should be Cantorized.
He have just 4-5 Senators that side with the citizens and the rule of law.
If we do not replace the Bush League Republicans with patriots and stop the Bush Plan for North Mexico, we WILL lose our country.

“unless the Dems win a majority somewhere.”

That has got to be a big part of the calculus. Dems have been expected to win the House, and would probably pull that $1.6 billion/yr. out of the baseline budget, and never give another dime.

So the Republicans might be trying to arrange a couple of extra years worth in under the wire, before the Dems take over the House in January - but Dem Senators can’t/won’t vote for it before the election.

The Dem Senators (and possibly Paul Ryan) might be trying to pull a fast one on the President, by assuring him they have a deal to get a plus up for wall building before the new Congress comes in, if he will wait till after the election - and then renege, using some excuse, or a single fall guy to take the blame.

Lets hope that there is an enforcement mechanism that the President can use, if they try to screw him.

Shut up, Quitter. You never had an ounce of fight during your tenure. If President Trump would ask his supporters to send in a generous donation to build the Trump Wall, it would be amazing, and it would make most of the GOP House members look as useless as they are.

All monies generated for the Gov goes to the Treasury, Congress destributes the monies.

From what I have read in FR, the last spending bill funded the wall in military spending. Congress just has to release the funds.

These clowns spend money like a drunken sailor.

What’s a few more billion to them, for the wall? Nothing.

Its more like they are stooges for big business and their donors. Like Ryan.
