The bill was signed, according to the Washington Times.
“President Trump signed a bill Friday afternoon to inject billions of dollars into disaster relief, racing to deliver the funds as Hurricane Irma bears down on Florida and as cleanup efforts from Hurricane Harvey get fully underway in Texas.”We hear cries of “President Trump made a deal.”
Okay, class, listen up. Where do all spending bills for the United Stated government start? If you knew it was the House of Representatives you probably cheated. Who is in charge of the House? Paul Ryan. The next line in the article is,
“Mr. Trump acted just hours after the bill cleared the House in a strong bipartisan vote.”In order for it to get to the president’s desk it also had to go to the Senate, where the Republicans also have a majority, and pass there. So by the time it reaches the president all the Democrats and RINOs had a chance to nix it. They did not.
Where were all these patriots when the president said he was ready to sign a bill ending Obamacare?
Crickets. So go ahead and be upset with the president but don’t forget your local congressman. And don’t leave out all of us that think the U.S. Government is there to ride to the rescue when we have a problem. We are digging our own graves, one crisis at a time.
