What happened to Republicans supporting a balanced budget? Or fiscal responsibility?
President Trump blasted Congress for wasteful domestic spending that was part of the budget that also increased spending for our military! There’s no government shutdown, but their is DRASTIC waste in our domestic spending. Is that the ONLY way Congress will support a strong military? Come on man! What happened to all the so-called Republicans who voted on this?
While the vast majority of America was asleep Thursday night, the federal government entered another partial shutdown as Congress waited until the last moment to pass another short-term spending bill.
You call THIS a BALANCED BUDGET?
NBC News reported that the Senate voted around 1:30 a.m. ET to approve a $400 billion spending package that was also approved by the House around 5:30 a.m. ET, and was signed into law shortly after by President Donald Trump, ending the shutdown just hours after it had begun.
That bill, which laid out spending increases for the Defense Department as well as domestic programs over the next two years, will fund the government for another six weeks.
Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before. We love and need our Military and gave them everything — and more. First time this has happened in a long time. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!
But the president wasn’t entirely pleased with the bill he had to sign to reopen the government Friday morning, as he viewed the massive spending increases for domestic programs as unnecessary.
MASSIVE SPENDING INCREASES????….THAT’S A BALANCED BUDGET?
In what has been taken by some as something of a veiled shot at both big-spending Democrats and their equally spend-happy RINO counterparts, Trump lamented in a pair of follow-up tweets that he had to approve the additional wasteful spending in order to fully fund the military — something unlikely to occur in the future if more fiscal conservative Republicans were elected to Congress.
Without more Republicans in Congress, we were forced to increase spending on things we do not like or want in order to finally, after many years of depletion, take care of our Military. Sadly, we needed some Dem votes for passage. Must elect more Republicans in 2018 Election!
Don’t Republicans support a BALANCED BUDGET? WHERE WERE THEY?
“I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama’s trillion-dollar deficits,” Paul stated on the Senate floor. “Now we have Republicans hand in hand with Democrats offering us trillion-dollar deficits. I can’t in all honesty look the other way.”
