It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget’. It’s an Omnibus bill, not a Budget. Has Trump outsmarted them once again? Did Congress screw themselves by not passing a Budget?
Per the Constitution, the President must adhere to a Budget set forth by Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.
This is another one of those big Porkulus Bills like they gave Obama for 8 years. This is not a Budget.
An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent, but Obama ignored them. He spent the money or didn’t spend it, however, he wanted to. And Congress didn’t do a thing about it! Because they couldn’t.
I think our President observed how this happened, year after year. He is bound to realize that those ‘appropriations’ for different things in these Omnibus bills are mere ‘suggestions’.
So like Obama, Pres Trump can spend this money on whatever he wants to. Or not spend it.
What if our President decided to tell the Treas Dept to ‘slow-walk’ that money to Planned Parenthood until the Senate gets off their ass and confirms his appointees?
What if our President decided to ‘slow-walk’ that money too until those Sanctuary Cities assist ICE in rounding up criminal illegal aliens?
What if the Democrats or the Mainstream Media speak out against the President?
Well, the President could just say “What!? Congress should’ve passed a Budget.”
The President said “just give me money for the military and the wall and you can put anything else you want in it” and they did!
In this case, as per above, he doesn’t have to spend a dime because it is not a budget and even if it was, as researched he could still spend as he pleases. Congress appropriates up to the President to spend it or not as he pleases.
If anyone disagrees, I can go back and get the links and evidence, but if you just read yesterdays political thread from Wheatietoo and his team, you’ll see how this all breaks down.
Again, that is why Obama never had a Budget in his Presidency. Congress did continual Omnibus’s and he just took the money…for 8 years…and no one seems to know where it went….
As your next Congresswoman I vow to never pass a bill I haven’t read. I vow to never pass a bill that’s not American First.
Thank God for Sen. Rand Paul
As your Congresswoman, I will never pass a bill that I have not read. Even if it’s 2000+ pages or more!
We have been reminded of some VERY important things today.
1 Never forget that Speaker Ryans wife is Democratic Strategist.
2 The House Members didn’t receive this bill till late Wednesday evening leaving them less then 17 hours to read it and vote on the bill.
3 Both the Democrats and the Republicans are against Trump. They want him gone! We must do everything in our voting power to elect fresh new true Conservative Republicans. Our current officials are willing to sacrifice American to get rid of Trump.
4 We must remain supportive. We must remain united. Today so many MAGA supporters came out and publicaly attacked the President. That behavior is just what the left wants. Don’t let them divide us. Stick to the plan and have faith.
5 Senator Rand Paul tweeted us the highlights of the Omnibus Bull. I encourage you to read them so you can educate yourselves on how our current Congress spends our hard earned money!
Will you contribute today?
Today we learned that our Congress is not working for us! We need to support and vote in true supporters of the American People. What was once a public service has now become a place for greedy hogs. I will continue to support President Trump and the MAGA agenda. I will stand up to Congress and tell them we have had enough.
What will you contribute today and tell Congress we have had enough?
