The House Republicans have given up on any pretense of actually governing by passing  a bill based solely on how it makes them feel.  When will Mexico be billed for the 1.6 billion and will it be net 30 and 1.5% interest a month if not paid?

And all it took was throwing the transgenders to the wolves.

Now Trump can have his victory party on the South Lawn again.

I can't believe we're actually going to waste money on that dipshiat's border wall idea.

But fark healthcare.

And WTF do we need more money for the military? We waste shiat on things we don't need that sit and collect dust as it is. It'd be one thing if they spent the money on vets that we tell to fark off when they're released.

First of all the wall is never going to happen but even if it did, how is it going to pay for itself? How much money are we going to save on these questionably existent illegal immigrants who are stealing all of our vegetable picking jobs?

Senate considering skinny wall bill now.
 
2017-07-28 01:54:06 AM  
So they're trying to pass a bill that runs afoul of a law? Wouldn't be the first time I suppose.

If the senate passes it as well then who would have standing to sue?

The "wall" already exists...as much as is practical anyway, and has for many years.    Which is very convenient because that means 100% of these funding allocations can be skimmed.   Its not really a brilliant grift but the fact Trump won't face any consequences for openly embezzling all that cash makes me admire the balls on him.

cmb53208: Protip: a $21 billion wall is easily defeated by a $400 airline ticket


There's no way the Great Wall of Trump comes in at $21 billion. The House brain trust just extrapolated the cost of the 2006 border fence. A plain old 10-foot high metal fence over smooth terrain near access roads. cost a million dollars a mile.

After the election, a structural engineer line-Itemed  Trump's Wall, which he wants to be 30-feet high, made of steel and concrete. His estimate came out to between $75-$100 billion and 10 years to build.

$1.6 billion is barely a drop in the bucket.

If my townie pal tells me I should be all YAY HAPPY for this defense budget expansion I'm gonna very politely tell him to either drop me off so i can catch a bus home, or I'm gonna tell him to leave my house.

The DoD has god damned ENOUGH.

"The Wall" is never getting made.  Oh, I'm sure "something" gets built, but it won't be "The Wall."  It will be pathetic and sad.

I don't know how even racist morons can think this is a good idea.

Think of the hospitals it could fund, the clinics in rural areas, school lunches for low income kids, drug rehab, education, books, computers...

It actually makes me want to cry.

Never again can Drew's Friend's ever say a god damned farking thing about Democratic budgets. Not a farking word. It's worth murdering 32 million Americans for a dodgy shiatty plane and a wall that will never get built to you people just to stiggit.

Worthless criminal president with worthless meth head followers and all of them in a feedback loop of stupidity.

I mean the wall is nice and all, but maybe look in the back of some of the trucks so we don't have dead illegal immigrants in Texas Walmart parking lots. That's all I'm saying. That truck came through the regular road.. not some coyote lead path.

That would imply our government considers the undocumented as worthy of human rights or any consideration at all. Which is a stretch.

I'll care what the right wing has to say about immigration when they stop luring immigrant families here with under the table jobs by the hundreds of thousands per year. Until the hurp a durp crowd is willing to clean their own house, fark their feelings.

1. How can they pass a budget that runs afoul of the very laws they pushed?

2. How can they give the military MORE money, but then claim that $2 to $8 million spent on trans soldiers is too costly. Congrats... The  .01% of the budget spent on them would now be closer to  .001%

This is the Mexican House of Representatives, right? We were told that there would be ZERO American dollars going towards this wall, and Donald Trump is nothing, if not honest...

You do realize we have had walls and fence on the border wall for decades right?   This isn't a new thing. Bush II built a lot of it and more was built during Obama.     There are no critical areas that are not fenced already, any money that is allocated to the wall is just going to disappear into a contractors pocket.
