Why didn't Trump & the Republican Controlled Congress Make it a Priority all during 2017 & 2018

 

Trump talked about it everyday during 2015 & 2016

 

Were they Simply Incompetent for 2 Entire Years?

 

Democrats didn't want Kavanaugh - Trump & the GOP got him in

 

Democrats didn;t want a Tax Bill that benefitted only the Richest Americans & the Most Profitable Multi-national Corporations - Trump & the GOP got it passed

 

Why wasn't the Wall - the Catalyst for the Current History Making Government Shutdown & a Threatened Declaration of a National Emergency

 

A Priority for Trump & The Republicans for TWO WHOLE YEARS?

 

Again, Incompetence or simply another Trump Lie

 

 As has been pointed out several times, it was Congressional rules, not incompetence.

 

 


 


What Congressional rule is it that says Republicans must not do anything?


There is none.


Correct - that RULE comes frome the Whitehouse & the Entire Republican Congress Capitulated

 

The Whitehouse - Golden Rule - now that the Democrats control the House will be modified and it will follow the Trump Lifetime Method of Operation

 

Tie them up in the Courts until 2020 so the Truth Never Is Known until after Trump wins a Second Term

 

There is the real possibility - Trump will lose no sleep continuing holding 800,000 American Workers Hostage regardless of all the Collateral Damage to even more American Small Businesses who depend on Governement Workers for their Livelihoods until that time

 

The Guy is a Cruel Incompetent Buffoon who lacks even the most basic Human Characteristics

 

It me & only me & all the time

 

As long as the Lemmings in the Trump Cult are willing to sacrifice themselves and their own familes futures swearing allegiance regardless of the cost - the Chaos will continue & get even worse

 

 The workers are not working because of a bipartisan impasse.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 


Another Blatant Purposeful Mischaracterization

 

The Democratic Controlled House has passed several Bills

 

One to Fund all the Current Agencies shut down

 

The other to fund each shut down agency seperately - a la carte

 

McConnell refuses to allow either or any of the Bills to Vote on in the Senate

 

Those are the facts

 

The Constitution Lies out the Process for Legislation - the President was given Veto Power if he does not accept the Legislation from the Congress

 

McConnell is obstructing Congress - Put the Bills on the Floor and let the people see who Votes for what and then what the Presidents does

 

Thats how The Constitution envisioned the Process - Transparent Government so Voters can make informed choices

 

McConnell is obstructing Congress and obfuscating the REal Issue in a effort to Shield Trump from the Vision of the American People & his Constitutional Duty to the American People 

 

Funding border security is an important part of the funding legislation. The Dems are stopping it. 

 

The Republicans will not pass legislation without border security. The Dems will not permit funding for border security. Hence, a bipartisan problem.


Why do you keep lying about the facts?

 

No Matter How Many Times You Repeat These Falsehoods - they dont become truths

 

Democrats won't fund a Trump Memorial Wall -

There is legislation sitting in both Houses of Congress that funds Repairs to Existing Fencing - funds for Drones Cameras Agents - Helicopters - Lighting - X-Ray & Acoustics

 

The Only Thing - Not Funded is a Trump Memorial Wall & mostly because Trump.has provided No Evidence - No Supporting Documentation to justify the Expense

 

There isn't a Company in the World that would approve a 5.6 Billion Capital Expenditure on the Gut Instincts of the CEO or some SONG Lyrics the CEO wrote for his Children

Trump Government shutdown becomes longest in U.S. history, enters 'uncharted territory'

 

“We’re talking about $5.7 billion for a wall, but the costs that are inflicted on the economy are orders of magnitude beyond that $5.7 billion,” one expert warned.

 

(CNN)President Donald Trump often boasts he's presiding over a record breaking presidency.

 
Now he's got another historic notch on his belt, the longest-ever government shutdown — an impasse that marks a new low for Washington dysfunction.
 
The dispute triggered by Trump's demands for billions of dollars to finally make good on an unfulfilled campaign promise — to build a border wall — began so long ago that Republicans had a monopoly on Washington power. The Democratic takeover of the House has deepened the disconnect, and with neither side willing to fold, nearly 22 days in, there is still no end in sight.
 
Since Trump crowed he would be "proud" to shutter the government over the wall, he gets to shoulder much of the blame for a crisis that is the inevitable result when the nation's political polarization is institutionalized in Washington.
 
 
 
 YES, THE REPS DIDN'T CAVE FOR ONCE.

 


If this is a example of the kinds of Wins you're going to be cheering for - it's going to be a grueling coupla years for you folks

 

 

A President holding firm on the needs of America for secure borders is the "kinds" of WIN we should all be cheering for.
