According to Marsha Blackburn the 5.7 B requested for the wall is 1/10th of 1% of the budget. CNSNews states that it is 0.11% of the estimated money to be spent this year by the federal government. So Chuck and Nancy are 100% behind the house bill, but when the Pres wants to add an item that is 0.11% of the projected budget the Dems basically say no, it’s has to be 100% our way or no way at all. Can’t be 99.9% our way and you get a measly 0.1%, that would make it bipartisan. So who is really throwing the temper tantrum? Who is keeping the government shutdown over an item that was added to Chuck and Nancy’s budget that is 0.1% of the total budget? If the Dems dictate 99.9% of the budget it shouldn’t matter how the Pres wants his 0.1% to be spent. Shouldn’t matter if he wants to give money to research the mating habits of red ants or buy toilet paper for monkeys, as long as it’s legal he should be able to spent his 0.1% anyway he wants.
