Like most people who support the President`s agenda, I was rather upset at the signing of the Omnibus Bill. However realizing that the President is not a politician or your average person, I mostly held out on criticism until more opinions on it started coming out. My first thought was that McConnell and Ryan f`ed him over with this. Would it have been great to see him veto the bill and shove it back in their faces? Yes, but now it seems he might have the last laugh. What people fail to realize is that the Omnibus Bill is not a federal budget. it is a suggestion on how money is to be spent. As posted here
FOR THOSE DOUBTING TRUMP DO YOUR RESEARCH Jo Ann Powell Neely Gunny says: March 23, 2018 at 7:42 am I seriously do not understand why individuals do not read the entire thread or disregard it.
Wheatietoo and I spent hours yesterday providing links, researching the laws, the 1974 law and statutes…. Do you know why the Omnibus is not going to get any notice…Here it is..
It’s not an official ‘Federal Budget’. It’s an Omnibus bill…not a Budget…He outsmarted them again…Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a Budget…
Per the Constitution…the President must adhere to a Budget set forth by Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.
This is another one of those big Porkulus Bills, like they gave Obama for 8 years. This is not a Budget..
An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent…but Obama ignored them. He spent the money, or didn’t spend it, however he wanted to. And Congress didn’t do a thing about it! Because they couldn’t..
I think our President observed how this happened, year after year. He is bound to realize that those ‘appropriations’ for different things in these Omnibus bills…are merely ‘suggestions’.
So like Obama, Pres Trump can spend this money on whatever he wants to. Or…not spend it.
Planned Parenthood? What if our President decided to tell the Treas Dept to ‘slow-walk’ that money to Planned Parenthood…until the Senate gets off their ass and confirms his appointees?
Sanctuary Cities? What if our President decided to ‘slow-walk’ that money too…until those Sanctuary Cities assist ICE in rounding up criminal illegal aliens?
Splodey heads? From the Dems and the Enemedia? Why yes. There would be a colorful display of splodey heads.
But what could they do about it. Hah.
Our President could just say…’What! Congress should’ve passed a Budget.’
done finished…research was done…and it is so very humorous actually….our VSG..just said just give me money for the military and the wall…put anything else you want in it…and those goofballs did.
In this case, as per above….he doesn’t have to spend a dime….because it is not a budget…and even if it was…researched….he could still spend as he please… Congress appropriates….up to the President to spend it…or not….as he pleases..
If anyone disagrees, I can go back and get the links and evidence, but if you just read yesterdays political thread…Wheatietoo and I laid it all out for all…Wheatietoo did most of the work and put together the consolidated update as per above….
Again, that is why Obama never had a Budget in his Presidency…Congress did continual Omibus’s and he just took the money….for 8 years…and no one seems to know where it went…
This seems to be verified by a letter sent to the president of the senate as well as the president of the house of representatives which you can read here
Just remember, before being upset realize that President Trump has most of the establishment politicians on both sides of the aisle working against him as well as the majority of mass media and a sizeable amount of the American population. Despite this he has still managed to do a lot of good things up till now and always seems to be at least one step ahead of everyone. Let`s see how this plays out. For everyone saying he`s lost their support, remember, he still has 2 years left before the next election for you to make up your mind.
