Trump Blasts Wasteful $400 BILLION Spending….You CALL THIS A BALANCED BUDGET?

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!

That was followed immediately with another tweet that read:
Costs on non-military lines will never come down if we do not elect more Republicans in the 2018 Election, and beyond. This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes. Fortunately, DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!

Don’t Republicans support a BALANCED BUDGET? WHERE WERE THEY?

According to Fox News, the short shutdown was started when Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul took a principled stand against the massive spending increase and delayed a vote on passage of the bill in the Senate until after midnight.

“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.”

Good for Senator Rand Paul! At least one person has some balls when it comes to some Conservative Republican issues like less spending, less government and less taxes. Too bad we don’t have enough Republicans in office or should I say, CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS in office to care about a BALANCED BUDGET!
Although Senator Paul’s position did match the conserns of the Freedom Caucus.
His position matched that of the roughly 30-member fiscally conservative House Freedom Caucus, who also took issue with the increased government spending on non-military issues.
“The … caucus opposes the deal to raise spending caps on discretionary spending by nearly $300 billion over two years,” the group stated Wednesday.
“We support funding for our military, but growing the size of government by 13 percent adds to the swamp instead of draining it. This is not what the American people sent us here to do.”

ELECT MORE CONSERVATIVES to support a BALANCED BUDGET!

AMEN! What’s WRONG with the other Republicans elected to Congress? They are acting more like Democrats when it comes to spending increases and a balanced budget. I think i’t probably because they have been in office WAY too long. Let’s face it…THEY are part of the SWAMP too!
Have any of these Republicans actually READ the GOP platform. I’m pretty sure balanced budget and fiscal responsibility are STILL in the GOP platform! It makes me SICK to think the majority of Republicans are RINOS. It’s time to PRIMARY THEM!
It’s time to wake up people and elect more CONSERVATIVES….members of Congress that actually will give a damn when it comes to FISCAL responsibility!
