PLAN B: Dems Introduce Bill to BAN Trump from Using ‘Taxpayer Money’ for Border Wall

Originally published at:

Congressional Democrats in the House of Representatives moved this week to block President Trump from using “taxpayer money” for his proposed border wall; effectively preventing the Commander-in-Chief from declaring a “national emergency” to begin construction.

“Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., and five other Democrats proposed the bill, on the same day Trump vowed to build his wall one way or another,” writes the Washington Examiner.

“My bill, the No Taxpayer Funding for the Wall Act, will block the president from executing his reckless plan and force him to honor his pledge that Mexico will fund the wall,” said Moore.

“I call on both Democrats and Republicans to join me in my effort by supporting this commonsense legislation to protect the American public’s tax dollars,” she said. “We must pass this bill to ensure that President Trump can no longer hold the American people hostage.”
