Pelosi holds Democrats together to pass spending deal

Friday, February 15, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Thursday managed to hold most of her caucus together to pass a border security spending package, even though it lets President Trump spend $1.375 billion to build steel slat fencing, a priority that's almost universally opposed by Democrats.

Pelosi famously said during the shutdown she wouldn't give Trump $1 for the wall, and when that turned into a compromise that gives Trump some of what he wants, several high-profile Democrats said they'd have to vote it down.

Firebrand liberal Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan said before the vote they couldn't agree to give the Department of Homeland Security more money, especially after the department "separated thousands of children from their parents, denied asylum to those fleeing danger, and used taxpayers dollars as a slush fund to incite terror in immigrant communities."

  1. It never used to make sense that so many (male) Pastors saw some of the women who come to their offices as "Satan" for various reasons.

    Now it does.

    Pelosi looks eaten from within. The name Jezebel used to be applied to Hillary and many "Conservative" Christians likened Hillary to Jezebel. Perhaps "Jezebel" is more of a spirit (of Jezebel) than that. Sure looks like Pelosi's got it, instead, now. Think "House of Cards" with the gender roles reversed and it's pretty obvious.

  2. Slats, what a dumb idea. It means they can still pass drugs, money, and weapons right through the wall. They can also see if they are being watched. The dems sabotage everything they can possibly sabotage. Make it a real wall.
