Skip to comments.Utah Sen. Mitt Romney says 'I've made my decision' about President Trump's national emergency vote

Romney is among a few GOP senators who have not disclosed how they will vote on a joint resolution that rejects Trump's national emergency declaration as a way to secure funding for a promised wall along the Mexico border.
Trump is expected to veto the resolution if it passes.
"You really can't say how you're going to vote on something until you know precisely what will come," Romney said. "But, I have studied this at some length and spoken with a number of people about it and I've made my decision, pending what the final bill looks like that comes to the Senate floor."
On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said senators were still looking into whether the joint disapproval resolution can be amended.
Among the amendments being discussed is a proposal by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, that would put a time limit on future national emergencies and require a simple majority vote by Congress to extend them beyond a 30-day or a 60-day period, the Hill reported.
A spokesman for Lee said, He is in talks with colleagues on how to best secure a vote to make real substantive changes to the (National Emergencies Act).

Romney is a no and Lee is his poodle. So Lee will be a no, too.
I totally suspect ol’ Mittens is gonna do whatever screws Trump the worst. That is the driving philosophy of this self-serving lump of garbage, not helping the country.
This was all scripted from the Start. Trump signed the God Awful traitorous bill, knowing full well his “National Emergency” would be shot down. Trump has moved on from the wall to an all out push for more Foreign Workers. We’ve been had. Wake up, already
Trump is the red headed step child to the political class in America. How we tolerated their infection on our system of government is quite sad.
The greatest generation ended after WWII citizenry faced their sunset.
Trump We want a lot of people coming in We want to have the companies grow, and the only way theyre going to grow is if we give them the workers, and the only way were going to have the workers is to do exactly what were doing, Trump said.
A La Globalist........

This is what near the entire Senate GOP is doing. Even those who know they will vote to support POTUS are not publicly supporting him on this. Cotton. MIA. Cruz. MIA. Etc. They are leaving him bare behind to the wind and giving the no votes news cycle room to take cheap shots at POTUS.

Your are insane or drunk. Stay away from heavy machinery tonight.
Trump in all his H1-Bi Glory. Read and weep. Oh, how’s that Wall Money coming?
did chit rhino poop his magic underpants?
Mitt’s daddy didn’t like Barry Goldwater either.
If they WERE the greatest how’d they f*** up child rearing so badly?
What would Joseph Smith do?
As if he didn’t know from the very start that he would vote to screw Trump (and us citizen peasants).
At least LouDobbs is waking up
Now that is one hell of an ugly picture.
Human traffickers are using Hispanic children which are rented out to adults to claim as their own in order to circumvent the immigration screening when they illegally cross the southern border.
Human traffickers then take these same children and “recycle” them, assigning them to new “parents”.
Girls 10 and up are being given birth control pills because the traffickers know they will be repeatedly raped as they are “recycled” on this dangerous journey.
This means NOTHING to the smiling Mormons featured in this article’s picture. Mormonism always was and always will be FULL of child sex abuse. So, Romney and Lee are perfectly comfortable with this arrangement. They should choke on their dainty little dessert cups. Frauds.
It’s modern day slavery that, in some respects, is even worse than the slavery we fought a civil war to end.
And all the Democrats and RINOs can do is think of ways to keep this immoral system operating.
Putrid meat puppet spawns of Satan. They need to be dispatched to Hell by whatever means necessary. I mean this in the politest and most respectful way, of course.
