The swamp has not given up their fight against President Donald Trump.
In fact, things just got worse.
That’s because Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell just betrayed Trump in this awful way.
Congress is racing to pass a government funding bill before the March 23rd deadline.
Instead of cutting spending and funding Donald Trump’s American First agenda, the bill is loaded up with $1.3 trillion in new spending.
Even worse, the legislation could include new gun control provisions.
“Congressional leaders and top White House officials are clearing the way for a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill, scrapping several last-minute attempts to tack on controversial policy riders ahead of a Friday deadline to fund the government…
…The president also asked GOP leaders over the weekend to include a short-term patch shielding Dreamers from deportation for 2.5 years in return for $25 billion in wall funding. But Democrats — whose votes are needed for passage — balked at the idea, and Republicans appear ready to drop it…
…Immigration has been another flash point in the spending talks. The White House pitched an offer directly to Democrats this weekend that would have granted two years of legal protections for the 1.8 million undocumented immigrants eligible under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, in exchange for $25 billion to build the wall.
But Democrats refused, insisting on a pathway to citizenship for the 1.8 million people who remain in limbo after Trump rescinded DACA…
…A bipartisan group of lawmakers, led by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), has also pushed to include a bill to improve the FBI’s background check system in the wake of last month’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school.
Some House conservatives have said they’ll refuse to back the bill without also expanding the right to concealed carry. But Cornyn told reporters Monday he “can’t imagine why it wouldn’t be” included in the omnibus bill.”
This legislation is a complete betrayal of President Trump’s agenda and the voters who sent Republicans to Washington.
Republicans won nothing in the deal.
Democrats got 100% of their priorities funded and it looks like they will be able to sneak a provision into the legislation that helps push America closer to a national gun registration database.
McConnell and Ryan are effectively Democrat leaders in Congress.
They have fought for little that conservatives believe in and have agreed to virtually every Democrat demand.
They represent the swamp and the establishment and not Republican voters.
This is a shameful surrender to the Democrats and it will only accomplish depressing Republican turnout in the midterm elections—which will boost the Democrats chances to win one or both houses of Congress.
Do you think McConnell and Ryan should be replaced?
