New Spending Bill Includes NO MONEY for Border Wall – Funds Planned Parenthood [VIDEO]

New Spending Bill Includes NO MONEY for Border Wall – Funds Planned Parenthood [VIDEO]

Yesterday, Charles Krauthammer said, “Trump got rolled. The Republicans got rolled.” He’s absolutely right. This is a huge blunder and loss for President Trump and the Republicans. And yes, Trump is to blame here as well. Even with the Republicans controlling the House, the Senate and the Presidency, they let the Democrats control the narrative on the budget. They were horrifically played.

Republicans are divided over the budget for one simple reason… principles. They are violating their conservative principles all over the place and therefore no one within the party can agree on anything anymore. The Democrats on the other hand are in full agreement on what they want and thus they took control of the budget fight and bullied the weak Republicans into getting their way. I heard that Trump did not want to be bothered with the budget until 2018. Bad move. Now we are here and Trump will probably not be able to control the budget in 2018 either.

From The Washington Post:

Democrats think they have set the stage to block President Trump’s legislative priorities for years to come by winning major concessions in a spending bill to keep the government open.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) secured nearly $5 billion in new domestic spending by exploiting disagreements between Trump and GOP lawmakers over spending priorities.

Democrats’ lopsided victory on the five-month deal, which is likely to be approved this week, means it will be very difficult — if not impossible — for the GOP to exert its will in future budget negotiations, including when it comes to Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint.

That’s because Republicans are hopelessly divided over how much to spend on government programs, with a small but vocal minority unwilling to support such measures at all. That has forced Republicans to work with Democrats to avoid politically damaging government shutdowns.

And that means Democrats are in the driver’s seat when it comes to budget battles, even with Trump in the White House.

Republicans ended up with nothing in this budget and once again gave everything to the Democrats. Funding for Planned Parenthood will proceed as before. There is funding for some border security, but none for the wall and no funding will be withheld from sanctuary cities. Does that sound like a win to you? This is one more thing that is wrong in my opinion that is going on in the White House these days. Trump floated the idea of a gas tax to fund infrastructure yesterday. Hell, why do we even pretend to be Republicans anymore? He’s meeting with the strongman dictator of the Philippines and called Kim Jong-Un of North Korea a ‘smart cookie’ and said he would like to sit down and ‘talk’ with him. SMH.

The budget negotiations have come under fire from many on the right, including Rush Limbaugh who decried the Republicans for funding Planned Parenthood, Obamacare and the EPA under the continuing resolution. As stated before, the budget also did not have any provisions for building the famed border wall that Trump had promised so many times during the presidential campaign. Limbaugh was right to nail the Republicans for not securing the $1 billion for the wall. That’s insane. The Trump administration confirmed that they had offered a deal to Democrats to fund Obamacare in a one-for-one dollar trade for funding the wall. The Democrats refused. Why? Because even though we hold all the cards, the Democrats know our hand and are controlling the deal. Idiots – that offer should never have happened in the first place.

In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in number 17 of the book, “If you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.” What this tells me about the Republicans is they are no longer the home of conservatives. What a disgrace.
