House sends $1.6 billion border wall request to the Senate … again

September 14, 2017

Donald_Trump_BorderWallHouse Republicans voted Thursday to send the Senate a huge, $2 trillion package of spending bills for fiscal year 2018, which includes the GOP’s request to spend $1.6 billion on the border wall in fiscal year 2018.

The package includes all 12 annual spending bills, which were all rolled into one bill after being passed in two pieces.

In July, the House passed the first piece, which covered defense, homeland security, energy and water and military construction and veterans affairs. That $790 billion bill also included $1.6 billion in border wall funding.

On Thursday, the House passed the second piece, which covered all remaining federal agencies and would spend about $1.2 trillion. Lawmakers passed this bigger piece in a 211-198 vote.

With that vote, the two pieces were combined, and were set to be sent over to the Senate for its consideration.

      Pitchforks and axe handles for those in the Senate that do not support the wall funding. Kick their !(^^%##^**arse if they don’t pony up the funds.

      Exactly! No further permission slip needed! Fork over the money that was intended for the border fence or get ready to be investigated for fraud with federal funds and a special wing of a federal prison just for senators. I’d like to see a return to chain gangs in that case, so they can personally improve our infrastructure, and it won’t cost the taxpayer one added dime when they build that wall. If they just work on the interstates it would give their former constituents an opportunity to stop by, see them actually working for a change, and to express some negative feedback for their previous endeavors in federal crime, plus they might be able to have their diet supplemented by all those “donations” of produce lowering the cost of feeding them too.

        Return of Chain Gangs would be great and love the post. In Marion country the country jail works it’s inmates to death and they wear big stripped uniforms while doing it, one of the only places in the U.S. where they wear that garb and Marion County Jail is deemed number 3 of the worst in America.

        There is so much corruption in our government in every county, hamlet you name it that it is as deep as Hell.

      Cut all foreign aid by 60% and it will balance the budget. Why are we paying our enemies? I am for getting rid of foreign aid.

        You see how much foreign aid is coming to Texas – the Islands and Florida.
