Politics as usual, thy name is Mitt Romney!
Of course, we already knew that, but now the junior carpetbagger, er, I mean senator, from Utah has corrupted his senior colleague — Mike Lee — into joining the ranks of the Swamp Dwellers of D.C.
Together, these morons are working to take away one of the tools President Trump has available to go around the do-nothing Congress and work to make America safe again.
The Article One Act they are co-sponsoring would limit the ability of a president to declare a national emergency to just 30 days unless extended by a vote of said do-nothing Congress.
In other words, they don’t want President Trump to be able to use his emergency powers to divert money from Defense projects to the border wall.
And what is making them reject America’s true defense needs — smelt a secure border?
One word — PORK! Good old fashioned pork spending in the form of $54 million that was diverted from Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
Altogether, the Defense Department is redirecting $3.6 billion from 127 existing military construction projects to build about 175 miles of wall on the southern border.
That doesn’t sit well with Despicable Romney and his Minion Lee.
“Funding the border wall is an important priority, and the executive branch should use the appropriate channels in Congress, rather than divert already appropriated funding away from military construction projects and therefore undermining military readiness,” Romney said in a statement.
As for Lee, the supposed conservative senator, he said:
“Congress has been ceding far too much power to the executive branch for decades and it is far past time for Congress to restore the proper balance of power between the three branches.”
Yeah, whatever, Moron! What about the power that you two Rebooblicans want to cede to the Demon-rats?
Thank God for President Trump and his willingness to do what is right for everyday Americans and not to protect some vested interest in funding of one particular air base in Utah!
