Budget Deal. Three Words. We’re Screwed Again.

1.3 Trillion Dollar Budget

Given that DJT and the Republicans caved in to a $1.3 TRILLION spending bill (and MASSIVE deficit), let’s sound off on this current event topic…

A few quick headlines I’m seeing:

– FAKE VETO
– TRUMP SIGNS MONSTER SPENDING BILL…
– BUDGET BLOWS INTO OBLIVION…
– VOWS ‘NEVER AGAIN’…
– Congress Gives Self Bonus!
– Planned Parenthood Gets $500 Million…
– Lawmakers Had 1,000 Minutes to Read 2,232 Pages…
– FLASHBACK: Ryan, McConnell LIE About Funding Border Wall…
– Pelosi, Schumer declare victory…

   

This afternoon I’m hearing on a few different talk shows the anger from Trump supporters (former?) and I wonder how you feel about this (regardless of your political position).

I can tell you that I am not happy about it.

I listened to part of Trump’s news conference and had to shut it off after a while since it sounded to me like he was trying to put shine on a sneaker or to make chicken salad out of chicken $hit.

He got the biggest military spending in history (is it ever enough? – just asking…), and that’s all he was talking about (because he got nothing else). Was talking about the number of new F35’s the number of new Super Hornet’s, the number of new ships and submarines and Black Hawk helicopters. I was happy though to see the guys get a raise.

That said, did he get ANYTHING regarding what was campaigned? Answer: No.

Additionally, how and why does Congress pass a budget (and the president sign a budget) that’s 2,232 pages long with than 1,000 minutes to read it? (That’s impossible). Wouldn’t it make more sense to know what the heck you’re voting on, or signing, first?

Answer: No. It doesn’t matter. We’re screwed yet again. We don’t matter.

The joke’s on us. Again.

 
Okay, your turn. Got any rants?
