Trump Signs Mega Spending Bill – Vows ‘Never Again’

Trump never promised us ‘business as usual’. He’s more of a get-r-done kind of guy. And he’s not really convinced that this budget bill is such a great one.

*Update Added Further Down*

Many of us on the right are naturally suspicious of any bill that puts a smile on Schumer’s face, or a spring in Pelosi’s step.

$1.3 TRILLION is a crapton of money.

With more than 2000 pages in it and no time to read it before the vote, most people haven’t a clue where the money is going, and could care less how it’s being spent… or what poison pills might be lurking in those reams of pages.

There are, of course, exceptions to that rule.

Rand Paul read out 600 pages of the 1.3 trillion #omnibus bill and posted some of it to twitter. At one point he had to order pizza.

The Republicans are taking a lot of heat for putting forward a budget bigger than anything Obama put forward, even if there is massive military spending involved in it.

But there are some glaring problems with it.

It puts a CAP on ICE agents.

No real money for the border wall.

Increased funding to Planned Parenthood.

No DACA arrangments. (And that would be a crapton of MORE money to resolve.)

Trump’s not thrilled with this so far.

The comment section sentiment blew up, and looks a lot like this:

And this:

Then why is Schumer smiling?

Becuase he thinks he’s set up a Check-mate lose-lose scenario for Trump. Or at least it looks that way.

Judging by the regressive left’s tweets on his timeline, they think they win either way. If it passes, there is bank-breaking spending beyond their wildest dreams, which is rocket fuel for the swamp critters.

If not, they are hoping he’ll veto this, so they can claim it was the ‘Russian sanctions’ he was objecting to, and say he’s not so very committed to the Military rebuild as he claims.

They are expecting Trump to roll over and take all the pork that’s been stuffed in there to get the Dems to stand behind this vote.

Will he? Won’t he?

There’s a news conference coming up, so expect updates soon.

And he’s already playing rope-a-dope with the press. He shifted the venue from the WH Press Briefing room to the Diplomatic Room at the last moment.

It sounds like he’s been reading Sun Tzu:

He changes his actions and revises his plans, so that people will not recognize them. He changes his abode and goes by a circuitous route, so that people cannot anticipate him.

We’ll update this piece when he’s finally tipped his hand.

*Update*

He reluctantly signed it. But he made it VERY clear he wasn’t going to sign another BS deal like it. He said exactly that:

‘I will never sign a bill like this again’

He came very close to using his veto, and yes, he gave it serious thought.

In the end, if it were not for the military gains, which were more than had been seen for a long time, he would have sent the bill back.

This bill was a hell of a mixed bag, with competing priorities. Some things about it were absolutely a necessary priority. That included military buildup and pay raises.

There were many things that absolutely disgusted him, without which, the military funding would not be funded. Horse trading, pork projects, and projects that he called ‘a waste of money’.

He called out the budget for being rushed, and a bill that was not even read by so many people.

He challenged the Senate to get rid of the Filibuster rule and get 51 votes in the Senate. So that you don’t need 60 votes to use the mandate the people have given Congress. “Without the Filibuster rule, it will happen like magic.”

He also said he will not do an omnibus like this again.

He would like a line-item veto, to scrap bogus additions to omnibus bills.

With the Trump $100 bill, gift giving just got a whole lot easier.

What’s not to like? They get a gift, and you get to crow about just how good Trump’s first year has been.

It’s win-win, right? Heck yeah.

Where would you get such a wonderful gift? We’re glad you asked.

It’s right here –> Trump $100 Bill

Or maybe when you give it, they’re uptight and have no sense of ha-ha.

We’ve got something for that, too.

Give them a book.

But not just ‘any’ book.

Give them something that will ‘awaken their inner badass’.

Tell them they can use that Hundred Dollar Bill as a bookmark.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
