GOP About to Fund EVERY, SINGLE Obama Era Policy
Yes, you read the headline correctly.
It’s easy to miss amidst the ConservaMedia feeding frenzy of late. Who has time to report on the single largest Republican betrayal of their constituency when you’re super busy with media bashing, making fun of liberals and pushing out click bait non-stories?
We are less than 2 days away from the passage of the budget.
A Republican budget. And as of today… there has been essentially ZERO coverage of said budget. Not Drudge. Not Breitbart. Nothing on National Review. Radio silence from big talkers like Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity.
Apparently actual bills, with words in them (words that affect the lives of regular Americans) don’t matter to Conservatives anymore in Washington, DC and on Radio Row.
Well, the words in this budget matter to me.
So I set out on a mission to find out what it contained. Across the nation, I encouraged my radio audience to call their local representative and ask 5 questions regarding HR Res 71:
- Is Planned Parenthood funded?
- Is DACA funded?
- Are the Obamacare Insurance Subsidies funded?
- Is the border wall funded?
- Does this increase the debt and deficit?
One by one the reports came in. Lots of backtracking, back-peddling and an ENORMOUS amount of dissembling. Talk of a ‘muddled process’ and a ‘very complicated’ system.
Not a single Republican representative could actually tell us WHAT the heck was in the bill. Yet every one of them plans to vote on it. It’s as if Nancy Pelosi has invaded the GOP with ‘we have to pass it before we know what’s in it’ inanity.
I was actual told by Representative Tom Reed’s DC office that “the budget doesn’t fund anything”… try to figure that one out. Here’s the statement in context:
Can you figure out that statement? I sure can’t.
You know who else is silent on the funding of Planned Parenthood? National Right to Life. Go figure. Not a peep about the fact that the GOP AGAIN refuses to defund abortion.
Here is the bottom line. I think the GOP is about to pass a budget that funds and codifies the ENTIRE Obama agenda. And I’ll stick with that assertion until they prove me wrong.
I challenge ANY Republican to come on my radio show and prove me wrong. I WANT to be wrong.
Please call your representative and ask them those five questions. If they cannot answer definitively … I would encourage them to vote NO on HR Res 71.
