I explained why I brought it up:Fortunately, what I think has not the slightest impact on on what Speaker Pelosi may do. Why you would bring up a vote from 2013 is a bit of a mystery. That is from BTE, i.e. before the Trump era. No relevance to anything in the TE.
The speaker at the time (Boehner) allowed a House vote on the Senate bill, even though it didn't have the support of the majority of his party in the House.It's a remarkably similar situation: president elected on a promise to do X. The opposing party subsequently gains the House and won't fund X, but the Senate, which is controlled by the president's party, refuses to pass a bill that doesn't fund X.
ExactlyMinnesota Democratic Congressman Collin Peterson is telling his Democratic colleagues to approve President Trump's request for funding a wall on the southern border.
On KFGO's "News & Views," Peterson said approving Trump's request could help bring an end to an "unnecessary" government shutdown.
“Give Trump the money” Peterson said. “I’d give him the whole thing…and put strings on it so you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We’re going to build that wall anyway, at some time.”
you're being untruthful again.Trump somehow seems to think that he can just waltz in to Congress and give the state of the union address uninvited. It’s hard to see the House issuing an invitation while he is holding the country hostage.
Well, she certainly made it clear this afternoon that he is not welcome.you're being untruthful again.Trump somehow seems to think that he can just waltz in to Congress and give the state of the union address uninvited. It’s hard to see the House issuing an invitation while he is holding the country hostage.
Speaker Pelosi did invite the President (on January 3rd), and stopped short of uninviting him in her letter of January 16th.
