SCHUMER SHUTDOWN CHAOS
Is it time for Individual Departmental Appropriations ?
Publish date: 21 January 2018
Chuck Schumer reminds us of our evil uncle - the one who speaks double talk and lies in order to influence those around him than he is being mistreated.
In reality, Schumer is hurting Americans . He has shutdown Federal services in an attempt to force legalization of dangerous immigration activities on American society. DACA is Schumer's trumpet call, but it is really a false slogan being used to cover a much broader based amnesty initiative (i.e. to include the extended families of Dreamers). DACA is for Dreamers just as much as the German Democratic Republic (cold war East Germany) was for democracy.
Schumer says that the Democrats are willing to fund basically everything the Republicans and POTUS Trump want. However, this latest "funding agreement" is contingent on the meeting of all "Democrat DACA" conditions, which includes items that Trump and other Republicans insist are non-flyers.
Lastly, the Democrat claim that the republicans control the Senate and House is false. The Senate is only controlled by the Republicans when items being voted on need a 51% majority, but not when 60% of the votes are required. At least 25% of Democrat Senators must vote in favor of a bill when a 60% Senate vote is required!
News rules need to be developed to define and allow individual Department Appropriation bills to be tabled. This way the bills cannot be held hostage to other unrelated issues that require their own legislation.
Schumer does not seem to have American interests at heart. But that's just our opinion.
