How about consequences for the Republican public “servants” who stand in the way of giving the American people those perfectly reasonable wishes?
Tax cuts pay for themselves! Trickle down economy! The rich pay the most taxes!! Deficits matter (until they don’t under a Republican administration)
These are the delusions of the moldy oldy white guy GOP.
In other words, a Republican bill or nothing.
• A spending plan that will pass the Senate?
The U.S. House of Representatives sent a spending plan to the U.S. Senate the very first day they convened, Jan. 3rd, 2019.
The thing was – word for word – the very same proposal that the Republican majority Senate had approved unanimously weeks before.
Not many things in politics are clear. This s#it is a no brainer.
Cave in to brat Trump the phony wizard, the Republican cowards say.
“Pay no attention to the douche-bag behind the wall!…”
Repealing the trillion dollar tax giveaway to the people that need it the least would pay for a lot of this stuff.
Well, we KNOW who’s the “Cowardly, lyin” player in THIS mess, Yertle the Turtle McConshell… agent for the Wizard of Ooze…
No money for the welfare of citizens… it all went to the ultra-wealthy because they needed more. Trillions.
Optimistically, perhaps they all will have to learn compromise…boy am I dreaming.
Note that it is the Republican President who’s short on brains and courage and has no heart.
The Republicans had control of the White House, the Senate, and House of Representatives for TWO YEARS. Where was the push for the wall then? Where was the “emergency?” If Mr. Trump couldn’t convince his own party for funding in two years, how is that the Democrats fault?
Send those bills to the Senate. Make them say no. Put them on record as being the ones to fail to honor their Oaths and the Preamble of the Constitution. It is their job to legislate, not to simply give up because it’s difficult. Make an offer, than negotiate and compromise, that’s how it’s done.
Can’t have civilized policies AND expect the rich to pay taxes. And.. as the rich make the rules.. you know where civilized policies go…
@Thomas — McConnell also stonewalled President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland.
Here’s a spending plan the Senate will pass: Weapons to Kill people. Denial of Medicare and Medicaid to Kill people. Theft of Social Security to Kill people. Prove me wrong, so called right-wing sh!theads.
Well Ken, for FORTY YEARS I’ve listened to Republicans LIE about balanced budgets. And I do mean LIE.
ANYTHING Republicans want is OK, spending be damned. ANYTHING Democrats want must be “balanced”.
Crap on it. I do not care at this point what the national debt is, I don’t even want to know and my level of care is past zero. FAR PAST.
I SWEAR NEVER TO LISTEN TO ANY OF THAT GARBAGE AGAIN!
Trillions for stupid tax cuts and bloated optional wars while declaiming that the nation can’t possibly afford ANYTHING FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES! What absolute hypocritical idiocy!
STUFF THAT CRAP!
So much for “the greatest deliberative body in the world” (not that that piece of colossal over-reaching ever WAS defensible).
Just realized that the GOP should adopt the Wizard of Oz characters as it’s logo as they lack brains, heart and courage.
And the Senate will flip to the Dems next year……….
