Continuing Resolution – Again

Go Ahead Chuck, Kick A Field Goal And Spike The Ball

Congress Kicks The Can 

Here we go again. The unencumbered Republicans have been losing for so long, they have no idea how to win. These inimitable clowns of Congress had months to assemble a budget plan but they decided to spend taxpayers dollars the Democrat way via a continuing resolution.

The bill sets up another possible government shutdown in September when the 2018 budget goes up for debate. To be fair, normally a newly elected president is not afforded an opportunity to pass a budget until nine months into his or her presidency. However, this was a glorious gift that the Republicans gave back to the Democrats. 

They approve of giving Planned Parenthood millions of dollars despite the documented bay chop-shop practices. Sanctuary cities will receive their millions and continue their uncooperative behavior with ICE and illegal immigrants. And, they did not a lot one cent to building the wall. 

Do Republicans Have Any Power – Or Guts? 

The Democrats have no power in the House, Senate, or White House, yet, they keep winning. It would appear that elections mean nothing to the left. They are still calling the shots and the subservient right says, "Thank you, sir, may I have another." 

New York Senator Chuck Schumer of New York said, it's a “good agreement for the American people, and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table.” When Chuck is happy, that means trouble for the country. A continuing resolution is what he wanted, and he got it from the timid Republicans. 

Some say it was a wise decision to have a continuing resolution insofar as a government shutdown would have occurred on Trump's 100th day in office. The media would have conflated his first 100 to the shutdown for weeks or even months. 

Can Trump Drain The Swamp? 

While this catchy phrase had a large part in Trump's presidential win, following through with the drain is more difficult than anyone thought. Trump is battling the Democrats and the media, which was expected. But, he is also fighting against many of the Republicans. 

These Bozo's want the establishment to remain the same. After all, many Washington politicians enter the political ring moderately wealthy and leave Washing very wealthy. Most of them are not there for their constituents, they are slaves to lobbyists and special interest groups. 

These two entities can make or break politician'sns career because they can control the money. It is a surreptitious pay-to-play if you will. Until this concept is destroyed, the American citizenry should expect more of the same – as seen with the continuing resolution
