Default Republicans At It Again

Republicans always pretend to be fiscally responsible until they take office. Starting today with the wall on the border. They want to increase spending for military expansion. They say they will increase the number of enlistees. They say they will build more ships, more aircraft, more nukes. They promise healthcare that will be cheaper. All of this at the same time they will cut taxes especially on those already swimming in cash.

When Obama called for money to support the U.S. economy when the country was in serious trouble the right refused and not one of them voted for it. They cared more about the partisan notion of obstruction than the welfare of the country. Now they want yet another spending spree without explaining how it's paid for.

Why should they not show us the money first. Show us the money for the wall. Not a promise. The money. The money to build a larger military. The money to pay the bills while you cut taxes. We have seen this play before. We know the ending. No more promises. Show us the money.

You just don't want a wall. You want to let all who will come here vote and be taken care of by our tax payers..

We will cut enough of the stupid moneys the left uses to buy votes and that will go a long way. Add to that taxes and tariffs and the wall money starts coming tomorrow.

We have to spend some money to restart the economy and get the ball rolling again after 8 years of doing nothing but worrying and paying for illegals to come here...

Get out of the way and go burry your head in the sand for the next 4 years. You will be much happier for it!

Regards, Kirk

Get used to Trump. He will be hanging around for a very long time, knocking down the left wing crap, along with some right wing as well. Prepare to be surprised.

It will be nice to see how America reacts when they see us being successful once again. Winning instead of loosing. Internally those who don't support him are not going to matter. All those white Democrats aren't coming "home" any time soon. Along with a heaping helping of Blacks who recognize a real agent of change that can, and will make a difference..

Mikeyy, Obama got his stimulus package. Nearly a trillion dollars. And no, not all Republicans voted against it.

So what happened to the money? Aside from confiscation and redistribution of GM stocks and first lien positions and a few roadside pat yourself on the back signs, nothing.

So what happened to that money?

On January 28, 2009, the House passed the bill by a 244188 vote. All but 11 Democrats voted for the bill, and 177 Republicans voted against it (one Republican did not vote).
