The Secret Service directly said the State of the Union wouldn’t have been at risk, and that Pelosi or her people never asked about it.
There are multiple videos of many of the people refusing to find a wall now asking for wall funding within the last five years. Many of them voted for the 2006 bill which increased border spending to 10 billion a year in order to pay for that fence. Most of which apparently got lost somewhere and not spent, in 2010 it was modified to reduce the size of the barriers.
Having to hit a food pantry after missing one check seems extreme. Mortgage companies, and auto lending companies were offering extentions. I’m betting some of that was played up for the news. Not like anyone else in the nation is immune to a paycheck disruption. Did NPR do pieces on coal miners out in food lines when Obama promised to close the mines?
It’s all showmanship, and it’s over such a small amount of money comparatively. But the left can’t allow another win for Trump. This is the only remaining campaign promise he hasn’t accomplished. They man has pretty much done what he said he would do, and what people voted for him to do. why the hell is anyone surprised?
The left continues to point at him as being gauche and uncultured, and none of his supporters give a shit. One poll a couple weeks showed his Hispanic support going from low thirties to just over fifty percent. He’s an ass, but he fights and people are tired of being demonized for their political beliefs.
Because I support better border control, I’m racist.
Because I don’t want the EPA or FCC arbitrarily making sweeping decisions I hate the environment.
Because I don’t believe title IX gives colleges the right to hold kangaroo courts and ruin people’s lives with no or little evidence innate women.
Because I think Kermit Gosnell was a miserable person and there needs to be more oversight I want to control women’s bodies.
Unpersoning someone for something they said 10 years, ago, only if they are white, male, or of the wrong political opinion.
And on, and on.
Because the progressive left has decided to treat me as a monster don’t be surprised when I back someone who fights.
Some ridiculous percentage of federal government workers vote democrat, and keep making each other more jobs. and when the people they voted for can’t negotiate beyond saying no and holding their breath I’m supposed to feel what?
All because Congress can’t pass a damn budget in the first place. If they kept their constitutional duties up and passed a real budget this wouldn’t happen.
