Trump team hatch border wall plan

Trump team hatch border wall plan
Constitution
173

The emerging proposal would rely on a law signed by George W. Bush and potentially spark a government funding showdown with Democrats.

House Republicans and Donald Trump’s team are coalescing around a multi-billion dollar plan to make good on the president-elect’s campaign vows to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, according to top Republican lawmakers and aides.

Republican leaders, in tandem with Trump’s transition staff, are considering using a 2006 law signed by former President George W. Bush that authorized the construction of 700 miles-plus of “physical barrier” on the southern border. The law was never fully implemented and did not include a sunset provision, allowing Trump to pick up where Bush left off — with the help of new money from Congress.

Yet the plan could potentially provoke a showdown with Democrats over government funding. Republicans are considering whether to tuck the border wall funding into a must-pass spending bill that must be enacted by the end of April. GOP lawmakers and aides believe they could win a public relations war over the matter by daring Democrats — particularly vulnerable red-state senators up for reelection next year — to shutter the government over one of Trump’s most popular campaign pledges.

Bolstering their cause is a long list of Senate Democrats who voted for the border measure a decade ago, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) — making it harder for Democrats to say no now, Republicans believe.

“There’s already in existing law the authorization for hundreds of miles of build out on the southern border … so, one important step in the right direction will be funding the existing law and beginning the building out of hundreds of miles of wall, or fence, on the southern border,” said House Republican Policy Committee Chairman Luke Messer (Ind.).

  • GRAMPA

    This is why Trump will kep his tweet going. so many follow daily that he will just expose which politician is blocking his efforts and tell the people they are endangering your children. he will use the democrats words against them. It is time the democrats are seen with their true face.
    Grampa

    • Evan

      And it is about time!

    • Richard Autry

      plus he doesn’t have to worry about the lying media to misrepresent his statements.

      • Amy C

        Oh it was either CNN or buzzfeed at the meeting and DAMN they were pissed lol…guy kept interrupting Trump like a douchebag. The reporter should have been thrown out, just cause you have a press badge doesn’t mean there arent rules of play. I was laughing my ass off at the stupid reporter.

        • Richard Thomson

          Talking about douchebags, we shall all be laughing at Mr. Trump when they drop the videos of him with the Russian prostitutes. He better keep kissing Putin’s butt as hard as he can.

    • Pastor W. C.

      Really Grouchy Pa.

  • dcwc16

    We just went through $10 trillion under Obama with nothing to show for it and Rino Republicans doing nothing about it. The Republicans better give Trump the money at least we will have something useful to show for it.

    • WVF

      As Mr. Trump has said, “Mexico will pay for it.” That will be done in various ways, but Mexico will ultimately pay for the cost of the wall. I like the idea of allowing volunteer prison inmates help with the task.

      • Vinstor

        Mexico will pay for it? You’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you?

        • WVF

          We’ll see about that. I wouldn’t call me stupid, if I were you.

          • David

            Vinstor doesn’t understand that there are many ways to get them to pay. Ultimately the price will be Mexico’s. Vinstor thinks it means the president of Mexico is going to cut a check.

          • rick meek

            Just cutting off the wire transfers to mexico would be 100 billion a year…..

          • Richard Autry

            Of course we could withhold payments to Mexico over trade with them, or sidetrack wire transfers to mexico. Of course, there’s many ways to exact the cost of the wall.

          • WVF

            Ignorance or stupidity, whichever, he has a problem being logical or rational. Mr. Trump is in the driver’s seat, isn’t that obvious?

          • Vinstor

            Well what would you call yourself then? My vocabulary obviously fails. “Stupid” was the most accurate description I could find, but maybe you know something I don’t?

          • Richard Autry

            Maybe that the only word you could find cause you found it in the mirror, you should try a dictionary.

          • Vinstor

            So you don’t have a better word. I thought not.

          • Richard Autry

            Ah. But of course. Liberal moron comes to mind. Someone who is a shill of the Damnocratic party who wants to live under the tyrannical Welfare/Food Stamp umbrella of the Damnocrats.

          • Vinstor

            I thought you were blocking me?

          • Vinstor

            And with that, the prosecution rests. Thank you for your input.

          • Amy C

            Some just don’t really read or watch what was said. Not stupid at all 🙂

        • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

          No i bet MEXICO WILL HELP CAUSE WE CAN DUMP THESE ILLEGALS RIGHT AT THERE DOORS.

          • Vinstor

            Oh dear. Sigh. Try this:

            No, I would bet that Mexico will help because we can dump [really? “dump”?] these illegal aliens right at their doors [illogical since there is no door on the border, but let us assume you meant it allegorically].

            Really, clear communication is a cornerstone of these conversations. You simply must make a better effort to use standard English. Otherwise, your efforts to argue, insult, and belittle are ineffective. Besides, since cons typically demand that everyone in the US must speak English, you really should follow that rule yourself. Sadly, the language that you have used here, while perhaps related in some distant way, cannot truly be called English.

          • Vinstor

            Well, I (note correct spelling) bet that we won’t be dumping your illiterate self at their (possessive adjective, not adverb “there”) doors because (subordinating conjunctions, not noun/verb “cause”) they would send you right back.

        • Amy C

          He said via fines, sanctions etc. He also said though he doubted via payment.

          • Vinstor

            Fortunately, he can’t do any of that alone. And Congress, despite the best efforts of the various “Freedom” movements, isn’t that stupid.

      • Kissingfan

        I agree but then when the volunteer prisoners run across the border, they’re Mexico’s problem. lol Perhaps Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s idea of the chain gang will keep the labor force in check.

      • Pastor W. C.

        WVF do you really think Mexico is going to pay for the wall? Be real. You forget that you, me and everyone else is an immigrant to this country. The only Native Americans are the Indians that was stolen from them. Think about it … It will not work and I do not want to be the one to say I told you.

      • Amy C

        Hell, you know how many Americans would donate money to the wall? More than 1/2 of the citizens are TIRED of this illegal crap!

    • Pastor W. C.

      Give him the money for what to mess up. Be real dcwc16. The only thing wrong with the Affordable Care Act they should have added “single pair”. The tax is helping pay for it and at the same time keeping costs down. Even Mr. Trump said that he like some parts of the Affordable Care act. I declare unto you Mr. Trump might just get impeach because he has too many special interests that he is not willing to give up. What you should be worried about is North Korea. What you going to do when they come for you? Regardless of what you say the Affordable Care Act was a good thing because before it was passed Health Care Costs was way out of hand. Furthermore Mr. Obama tried to work with the Republicans but they never did presented an alternative plan.

  • WVF

    To all Democrats, “There are consequences for losing an election.” You lost, we won! The American people have spoken. We want a wall built, not a fence, and we want it yesterday!

    • Vinstor

      Yes, the American people have spoken. And three million more of us voted for Clinton. We don’t want any goddamned walls.

      • WVF

        When the illegal Mexicans are subtracted, Clinton lost by about two million. And, we are going to have a wall!

        • Vinstor

          And exactly what evidence do you have that ANYONE who wasn’t legally eligible voted? The mere fact that Trump lost doesn’t count. Nor does anything published by Faux or BrightBrat.

          • Jim Wall

            another sore looser

          • Vinstor

            loser

          • Ronald Vest

            He is not a sore loser. He is just telling the truth whether you like facts or not! All truthful and ethical ways have been shattered by a person who lies and unethical. I juat hope no major decision has to be made by them to save Americans! No one in his cabinet is experienced enough to give him good advice as if he would listen to any advice from anyone!

          • Pastor W. C.

            Ronald I agree with you. When we do not think like the right wing Republicans they revert to name calling. Calling us morons and idiots. But who is really the morons? Keep the pressure on them Ronald and together I hope and pray can change their mind. For they truly do not understand.

          • Robert Russell

            Sore loser ha ha ha. LoL!

          • Vinstor

            Well, at least you spelled it correctly.

          • Richard Autry

            Bright Brat, in case you haven’t noticed BroightBrat is a major Hillary shill, and has been funding her campaign.

          • Vinstor

            Breitbart funded Clinton? Really? Wow.

          • Russell Lissuzzo

            The last 50+ years I have been watching, listening and actual sources for something you and the rest of the “socialist-uinionist peasants” know absolutely nothing about…TRUTH!! Not my Truth not your truth but TRUTH backed by FACTS!!!!

          • Vinstor

            Well then pray share.

          • Vinstor

            Yawn. Again, sources?

        • Robert Russell

          LoL! Good one!

        • Ronald Vest

          You are so full of yourself and also telling falsehoods! There is no proof that millions of illegal immigrants voted for anyone! This is just another lie Donald Trumps election committee told to try to give him a mandate! This crap is not going to fly except right back in their faces!

          • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

            I DON’T THINK SO CAUSE A LOT HAVE BEEN EXPOSE OF WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE DONE THESE LAST EIGHT YEARS.

          • Ronald Vest

            First of all it is very rude to shout by using caps which is not surprising coming from the type of people who are gullible to believe the propaganda perpetrated by a campaign that used your fear and frustration to elect Donald Trump! Also, if you believe that the destructive policies of the president elect it tags you as heartless and self absorbed of the miillions of Americans who rely on the ACA to survive!

          • WVF

            Are you able to see after you have removed your head from your rear end?

      • Kissingfan

        You made you choice. Ours won. Of course liberal Calif. doesn’t like it. Whatever happened to the INS requirements for employees to show legal identification in order to work in this country? Oh, I forgot, Calif. gives every illegal a state ID or Driver’s license. The wall stands!

      • Richard Autry

        Well, in spite of that the bitch still lost the election, and the winners want the wall despite what the loser wants.

        • Vinstor

          I don’t think you can really call them “winners” when they lost by three million votes, now can you?

          • john

            Poor Butt Hurt Vinstor. GET OVER IT YOU LITTLE CUPCAKE!

          • Pastor W. C.

            John it appears you are the one that is whining. When this country is over taken by Russia and North Korea then you will see. Mr. Trump does not care for anyone except him self.

          • Richard Autry

            Of course we can, because they lost the electoral votes, which is really what matters.

          • Pastor W. C.

            The Electoral College still need fixing. It will come to you later.

          • Richard Autry

            I believe someone else pointed out that when you discount the illegal aliens who voted, she lost by to million votes.

          • Vinstor

            Asked and answered. You don’t read very well, do you?

          • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

            I read well cause if your hillary had won it would not belong that these muslims would be rulers of America.

          • Vinstor

            I read well *because**,* if your *Hillary* had won*,* … [Sorry, the rest is gibberish. Perhaps there’s a clearer way to say what you wanted?]

          • Pastor W. C.

            Irene the only reason Hillary lost because she did not campaign in the rural and urban areas. Perhaps she misread and thought she had the momentum. Hillary underestimated Mr. Trump. If she had aggressively campaigned in the rural and urban areas it probably would have been a different story.

          • Vinstor

            I’m sorry, I’m not even sure that this sentence(?) is in English. Did you want to say something comprehensible?

          • Russell Lissuzzo

            Do you know anything about the Constitution or just vomiting bile? The Electoral College was devised by intelligent men to protect WE THE PEOPLE from mob rule in concentrated population areas of tyrant/socialist/communists mind-numbed, barely human, voters. And YES tyrant/socialist/communists existed in ideology even back then.

          • Vinstor

            Evidence? Or are you just vomiting?

          • Vinstor

            And why, exactly, should voters count less because they live in cities? Or, put another way, why should rural voters count more?

      • Jim Wall

        you want the illegals and terrost to just coming in with no one to stop them, this is the reason you sore ass looser lost

      • Leon Uplinger

        We don’t care what you think. You lost the election. We won. Just as obama said.

        • Vinstor

          Well, if nothing else, cons have been forced to agree with President Obama about SOMETHING.

          • Richard Autry

            That’s right Cons.

      • Robert Russell

        Your going to get the wall , if you don’t like it go back to Mexico. Trump! is our president the Constitution way not the Democrat sore losers way.LoL!

        • Vinstor

          We’ll see. He’ll try. He may even try to pay for it himself just to make a point. That’d be about right for a petulant child. LOL!

          • Richard Autry

            Speaking of a petulant child. Isn’t that what the Damnocratic party and it’s voters are acting like?

          • Pastor W. C.

            Richard it occurred to me that the Republicans want everything to go in the way of the “haves'”. When are you all going to realize that it is more poor people than rich people. They only need a break. As I have said before I do not want to be the one to say, “I told you so”. Some of you cannot hold a descent conversation without using obscenity. Some of you all mouths need to be wash with CLOROX. The wall may or may-not get built but that will not stop the illegals from coming over. They will find a way.

          • Richard Autry

            What part of “It is not the governments job to provide for the poor” do you not understand? A socialized Government is not part of the Constitution, and we do not need to spend our tax dollars on feeding and supporting those who do not want to work. That’s all the Damnocrats want to do ’cause it will pad their voter rolls, in order to fulfill their goal of a Utopian Socialist nation, where they can control the people all for the cost of welfare checks, FEMA camps, and food stamps. The main reason FDR broke with the Constitution in all his programs was to break us out of the depression, something WWII inadvertently did. You’re a pastor, do you not know II Thes,3:10b? “that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” You need to talk to whatever god you talk to, or read your bible and learn the facts.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Brother Autry I did not say it was the government responsibility to provide for the poor. Some people apply for jobs but are stereotype and they do not get hired. Did you not know Job 20:10 speak about seeking to please the poor. The psalmist talks about “I am poor and needy” (Ps. 70:5). Mt. 5:3, “Blessed are the poor in Spirit” and Gal. 2:10, “You should remember the poor”. I can go on and on and give you facts that come from the Holy Bible. Your problem you use only scripture to justify your position. It is the government right to help the poor and needy because some people just cannot find adequate jobs for reasons unbeknown. You speak of the constitution but the preamble in part states: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect
            Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the
            common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of
            Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this
            Constitution for the United States of America. I ask you to note the phrase “insure domestic tranquility” and “promote the general welfare”. It is our duty to help all people that is the moral thing to do. It is not a Democratic nor Republican thing. It is the moral & right thing to do. My advice to you is to re-read the Bible and pray to Yahweh God for wisdom and understanding. You sound like a logical person but somehow just like some church folks you have not really study the Bible. It is a reason why Mr. Trump got elected. I may be wrong but I do not think so but Mr. Trump & Pense is going to set this country back if they can. Understand what you read in the bible. Blessings to you my friend.

      • mikey2046

        Your team gained more yards, but still lost the game 17 to 10. Now you complain that the rules aren’t “fair.” Suck it up and try again in four years.

        • Vinstor

          Fair point. In fact, the first mature response today. Thank you.

          But the rules aren’t fair. First order of business: nullify the Electoral College. And there’s absolutely no way I’m waiting four years to wrest our government back from these idjits. The 2018 midterms should be very interesting if the Dems can get their act together.

          • Richard Autry

            Right. First order of business “get your act together,” Damnocrats!

      • Richard Autry

        And i don’t like your use of French, so I’m blocking you.

        • Vinstor

          Bien. Mais je n’ai pas utilisé français.

      • SED

        All 3 million were in California. One state does not represent a country. Thus the reason for the electorial college.

        • Vinstor

          Evidence? Or are you, like our friend Richard, simply pulling it out of your ass?

          • SED

            There is a search engine called google. Try it out and look up California election results. 7.5 mm for Hillary, 4.0 mm for Trump. All and more of the 3 million extra for Hillary is right there in good ole Ca. Facts don’t lie and neither do I. The other 49 states…well you can figure it out I hope…

          • Vinstor

            So you think that Americans who live in certain states should have less voice in and democratic process predicated on one vote per one person? Curious. Where, exactly, did you learn about our form of government?

        • Vinstor

          And their votes should count less because they are in California?

    • Richard Autry

      Of course that’s depending on whether or not Obama is going to be a sore loser and try to upset the inauguration process as he claims he will.

      • Richard Autry

        Oh. He’ll be a sore loser, he’s being one now.

      • Pastor W. C.

        What are you talking about Mr. Autry. President Obama have said nothing about upsetting the inauguration. It is bad enough that you all won. One thing that was accomplished some Republicans lost their seats in Congress. When Midterm comes around more will be lost if Mr. Trump and the Republicans fail to do the people’s will. The people have spoken but Mr. Trump did not win the Popular vote and you know it. If any thing needs fixing it is the Electoral College. To me the person that won the popular vote should be President. That’s common sense to me.

        • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

          HILLARY WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY CHEATING.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Prove that she cheated. Hillary would have made a better President than Mr. Trump.

          • WVF

            My God, I thought you were just a dullard, I had no idea you were just plain stupid!

          • Pastor W. C.

            Now you have reverted to name calling. This is the way you all are when people does not see eye to eye with you ; tries to belittle and put people down. But you know what “when you go low, I go high.

          • WVF

            Killary Rotten Benghazi Clinton tried that, and how did that work out for her? It matters not low or high, if you’re a loser.

          • Pastor W. C.

            For your information Hillary was borrowing from another source. Regardless of what you say I will never stoop down to your level. I have too much class. Why don’t you see what commonality traits we have in common. One thing for certain although Mr. Trump have revealed his plan but already the pundits are criticizing the plan. From what Mr. Trump have said his plan is very similar to the current Affordable Care Act. This leaves to say the only reason why you all want it to be repeal because the Democrats passed it first. Now who is the sore loser!

          • WVF

            It is now obvious you are a specious troll, worthless as Killary, and have no ability to think and act responsibly. In short, you are a disgusting Democrat and need mental assistance. We won, jerk! Get it! We won!

          • Richard Thomson

            WVF. You were a college professor? I hope you weren’t an English professor. Quote from you: “I had a very dim view of those whom plagiarized.” Ha, ha, ha! Glad I was never taught by somebody as dimwitted as you.

          • Richard Thomson

            WVF. I am just reading through some more of your posts. You are a vile person. The pastor here is responding politely each time. But you? You should be ashamed of yourself, especially if you were a professor.

          • Richard Thomson

            What subject did you teach? Which college employed you?

          • Richard Thomson

            Perhaps you are senile and that is why you behave this way? If so, I apologize for criticizing you. Hopefully your family can get you the help you desperately need.

          • Richard Thomson

            WVF. Regarding “who” and “whom”: if you don’t know which one to use, I recommend to always use “who”. Nowadays, it is usually acceptable, unless you’re writing something that’s going to be published.

          • Richard Thomson

            OK got to go now. Before you start calling me a lot of stupid names, remember: it will reflect more on you than it does on me. Have a nice evening WVF and Pastor W C. 🙂

          • Pastor W. C.

            Thanks for schooling WVF because he truly does not know. I never belittle him for supporting conservative ideas. WVF probably deep down inside have a problem with people that do not think like him. Before I went into ministry my undergraduate degree was in Sociology. Sociology is the study of Human behaviors in a group setting. WVF is a egotistical, paranoid maniac. He truly needs some serious counseling.

          • WVF

            It has to do with case, and most people today have no idea how to use “who” or for “whom” the bell tolls.

          • Pastor W. C.

            And, it tolls for you.

          • WVF

            You are a dumb-ass! You would never have been able to pass any of my classes, and none of my classes were English. Look, stupid, we won, you lost! Get it! We won, you lost! Now live with it for at least four years, hopefully eight years and beyond!

          • Richard Thomson

            I was an undergrad at Cambridge University. I also have a PhD in Physics. Sorry, but I am definitely not a “dumb-ass”. What subject did you teach?

          • WVF

            Sorry about that, Richard, didn’t mean to insult you. My undergraduate degree was in psychology, master’s in human resources management, and my doctorate (D.B.A.) was in business administration. Post-graduate studies at Harvard, Wharton, and The Graduate School of Chicago. I taught a host of business courses such as organizational theory, management, organizational behavior, human resources, business ethics, and others.

          • Richard Thomson

            No offense taken. Best wishes and, please, tone it down a bit. Try to be nice to the pastor. He seems like a decent human being.

          • WVF

            Not a problem.

          • Amy C

            LOL don’t you know WWF He’s a libtard so you don’t agree you’re vile. They’re all a bunch of losers who have wives, gf’s & bf’s who are cyberf*cking people online when they’re at work since their partner is too much of a pussy to be exciting.

          • Pastor W. C.

            How did Mr. Trump win through the Electoral College. Hillary still won the Popular Vote. This is why Mr. Trump is not the legitimate President. When people do not agree with you, the only thing you know how to do is show your ignorance. If you were my College Professor I would make sure they sensor you. You are bias, prejudice … If that sort of thinking in Hell your eyes will look up and wonder what did I do. Repent of your sins before it is too late.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Thank you Richard for telling WVF because he is a dense that tries to belittle everyone else.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Who are you calling a jerk? JERK! I believe that description fits you more than it fits me. Just like another responder that voice his opinion that you are some kind of stupid. It is you that need mental counseling. Up until now I have tried to be sensible and intelligent but just because some people do not see eye to eye with you the only thing you know to do is revert to name calling. Shame on you. I know my thinking is better than yours. Stick and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me. I hate to be the one to tell you after 1 year that “I told you”

          • WVF

            There is a cure for ignorance, but stupidity is terminal!

          • Pastor W. C.

            Whatever you say you are talking about yourself. You are unexplainable . One day when you are on your death bed is when you may finally see the light.

          • WVF

            I highly doubt you have ever seen the light or ever will. You sound like a false prophet.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Really … And what do you sound like? A stumbling Fool.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Like I said in Hell you will lift your eyes …

          • Pastor W. C.

            I was thinking the same about you.

          • Pastor W. C.

            You are really ridiculous and sick. You are nothing in my book. You really need to get a life.

          • WVF

            I have a life, sorry you don’t!

          • Pastor W. C.

            I am sorry that you don’t. Satan have you spiritually blinded and you cannot see it. You need to learn how to respect other people ideas and stop calling people names if you do not want to be call one. I truly do not know your problem. Your honey-moon will soon be over. Then I will be able to say I told you so. I am not going to respond to anything else that you post because it is not getting anywhere.

      • Pastor W. C.

        True
        Patriot Texas that is good if people disagree with me but it is the
        truth. I notice when people disagrees with you we are wrong. I do not
        get it … You know the outgoing President some of you never did show
        him respect. What did you want him to do is keep quiet on certain
        issues. Concerning the Affordable Care Act repeatedly he pleaded with
        the Republican leaders to give him a plan. The Republicans still have
        not come up with another plan but some of you want to repeal. The
        Affordable Care Act is working; not only is it adding additional money
        but more people have insurance. The only thing that is needed that it
        still needs fixing. You call yourself a True Patriot from Texas and yet
        you or some of your people do not want to help people who are less
        fortunate than yourself. I am not talking about a hand-out but if a
        person comes knocking at your door at midnight would you get up? Read
        Luke 11:5-8. He did not want to get up because of the hour however,
        because of his boldness or importance he did get up and gave him all the
        bread that he wanted. The scriptures teaches we are our brothers
        keepers, this means people that do not look like you and I. I truly
        hope you see another way. Peace

    • Pastor W. C.

      To all Republicans, You may or may not get the wall but think about the circumstances. I know some of the Immigrants that come over to this country does not have the proper papers however, when they do manage to come over some of them have made useful citizens of this country. Before the end of Mr. Trump’s term I declare some of you will be cursing him out just like you did Mr. Bush. You can not have it both ways.

      • WVF

        We do not need more immigrants in America at this point. What we need is at least a moratorium on ALL immigration for at least a decade.

  • Pastor W. C.

    What is the use? To dcwc16 what $10 million are you speaking about? Regardless what you think about President Obama but he did do the best he knew how. He did try to work with the Republicans and were willing to compromise on the Affordable Care Act but the Republicans did not want to listen to reason. What are we going to do with over 20 million people that have sign up and they are getting health care. You need to tell your Congressmen not to REPEAL but find a way to make it better. The problem is the tax. I would rather pay a little extra for tax then have nothing. You all will soon see that you all made a terrible mistake in electing Donald Trump and Michael Pense.

    • Rich Pinkham

      I don’t know what website you got your Ministry cert at but I hope they gave you your money back. As for your logic you should crawl back under your rock and let the adults handle the politics because you are showing how little you know or care about this country. First is that Obama has produced 2 birth certificates and both of them are fakes. second is even if he was a legal natural born citizen to hold the office he was working with a full house of Democrats for the first 2 years and still did not do anything but shove this load of garbage at us. when he could not use his democrats anymore instead of putting things to a vote he just used EO’s. I think that Trump will put together a new plan and transfers everyone over to it before he puts Obamacare in the trash where it should have been to start with.. Polski with her ” WE GOT TO PASS IT TO SEE WHAT IS INSIDE OF IT” load of stupid taxes and increases. Always a liberal democrat to figure out how to pad a bill for their own profits..

      • Pastor W. C.

        And, I don’t know what High School you attended. First, I do not have a certificate. I have earned my Masters of Divinity degree. At least I have a rock to crawl under. What are you going to crawl under when you find out what Mr. Trump desires to do will not work. Concerning President Obama birth certificate he has already proven he is an American citizen. I discern that you are trying to break me to say obscenity against you but I will never go “low”, because when you go low I go “high”. The only way Mr. Trump got elected because of the rhetoric that he was able to use appealing to the “right wing racists” that prefers to keep things the way that they are. Where have you been because President Obama kept us safe and he did not get us in an unnecessary war like Mr. Bush and Mr. Reagan(God bless the dead) has done. Every-time a Republican gets in office he has to undo what has been done. When are you going to learn that there are more poor people in this country. They need affordable insurance that they can use. Therefore, my lost friend, “WE MUST NOT REPEAL UNLESS THE REPUBLICANS CAN OFFER A PLAN FOR ALL THE PEOPLE AND NOT FOR THE 2%. You speak of taxes and increases I want to see what you going to do if the wall gets built and the American people will pay for it. Leave it to a Conservative Republican to mess things up.

    • TruePatriotInTX

      Obama can’t even spell the word “compromise”, much less know what it means. He has been the most divisive, partisan president in history and we will be so much better off once he is gone.

      • Pastor W. C.

        Really? We will be better off when all of the bigots, racists, homophobic are rid of once and for all. I really feel sorry for you in thinking that way. I do not believe you know what truth is.

        • TruePatriotInTX

          Hmm, I know a lot of pastors that would disagree with you, “Pastor”.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Really. Give me names and tell them to prove it. Perhaps they have hidden skeletons.

    • Vinstor

      My major complaint with Obama was that he was TOO willing to compromise. And the DINOs squandered their majority in his first term, resulting in too little being accomplished. Now we’re in for the fight of our lives to stop the Donald destroying the country.

      • E Scott Hollingsworth

        I think Owebummer has demolished the country enough already. The damn tax and.spend libLIARal.

      • Richard Autry

        what compromise? he just dictated his plans for the ACA and told the damnocrats in Congress to get it passed.

        • Vinstor

          Hardly. If he’d had the backbone to do that, we’d have a single payer system like the rest of the civilized world.

    • David

      It is my responsibility to make sure my family has medical insurance. Why should it be my responsibility to make sure strangers have health care?

      • Richard Autry

        and why is it your responsibility to make sure all the tennyboppers who couldn’t keep their legs closed in this country should have to use our tax dollars to get an abortion.

      • Pastor W. C.

        Yes, it is your responsibility to make sure your family have affordable health care. According to the constitution and the Hippocrates Oath that Doctors have to take before they get their license to practice medicine that they will perform their duty on all people (even the ones that cannot afford it). As I have said it wasn’t nothing wrong with the Affordable Care Act and it was providing health care for people that could not afford it.

    • rick meek

      obozo didn’t do chit except get us in more problems than ever and imported another 5 million……and gave them SS welfare – food stamps and medical….

      • Pastor W. C.

        I disagree with you Rick Meek. Let me ask you what did Mr. Bush and Mr. Reagan do? When you go low with your insults , we go high with facts.

        • rick meek

          Pard – I and others made up the facts that you’re fed so don’t even try the high road – I was out there in the jungles and deserts the whole time you people fought over the scraps from the table….

          • Pastor W. C.

            Why did you make up the fact … Bro. Meek it appears you listen to propaganda that come from Fox News or CSpan. It’s a good thing that you have serve this country but some how you have lost your way. Do you recall the parable that Jesus told “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall under the table (Matt. 15:27). Is it not right to take the children’s bread and toss it under the table. Bro. Meek you have a lots to learn about humility and compassion.

      • Pastor W. C.

        Rick Meek that is good if people disagree with me but it is the

    • Daniel from TN

      1. What compromise on the ACA? Republicans weren’t even allowed to read the bill before it was voted on. I saw that myself on C-SPAN.
      2. 20 million may have signed up but they are NOT getting health care. Deductibles are so high they will never be reached. In other words, people now have health insurance, but not health care.
      3. If you want to save taxpayer dollars then follow the recommendation of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). While the ACA was still in committee, the CBO stated that if the government would just let uninsured people pick their own policy and the government just pay the premiums, then the cost to taxpayers would be less than one-tenth of 1% of the ORIGINAL estimated cost of the ACA.
      SIDE NOTE. Talking about saving more taxpayer dollars. Over one billion dollars has now been spent on the ACA website, and it STILL does not work. Experts have stated that the cost of setting up a working website should not have cost more than six or seven million dollars. I wonder who is benefiting from that one billion dollars: It sure isn’t the American people.

      • Pastor W. C.

        Daniel
        1. The President did try to reach a sensible compromise on the ACA. Do not go that way because you all did have time to read the bill before it was voted on. C-Span just like Fox News report only propaganda.
        2. Yes, 20 million people sign up but they are getting health care. Deductibles are high ; however, I do not recall the other option but there was other options for people that qualify to get help paying their deductibles.
        3. I think the only problem it should have had a single pair option. The problem is that some of the Republicans do not want to pay extra taxes. If they present a plan you will find out that the new plan will have a tax on it too.
        Therefore, Bro. Daniel the ACA only need to be fixed not repealing. It will be less costs to the American People.

        • Daniel from TN

          1. I watched everything LIVE on C-SPAN ,as it was happening; not a report broadcasted afterwards. The ACA bill was submitted at 2:00 AM one morning. The vote on it was scheduled for 8:00 AM, just six hours later. A speed reader could not read the bill in that amount of time.
          Before the vote one Republican asked for a copy of the bill and was told a copy was at the secretary’s podium. He went to the podium but there was no copy of the bill. When he asked again he was told “Copies of the bill are at the podium.” He stated “Mam, I’m at the podium and there are no copies here.” She just repeated “Copies of the bill are at the podium.”
          Republicans were NOT allowed to read it before the vote.
          2. Yes, 20 million people did receive health care insurance, but according to the American Insurance Institute, a reliable non-government agency, 40 million LOST their insurance due to the ACA. The required coverages and the resulting increased premiums put insurance out of reach for those people. Also, some companies that provided health care insurance for their employees stopped doing so: The fine for not providing insurance is much less than the insurance itself.
          *****************************************************************************
          The ACA was NEVER about health care. It was about controlling the people. Health care was just a front.

          • Pastor W. C.

            Bro. Daniel all I have to say C-Span is not a reliable source. They report propaganda just like Fox News. Something is not right. When they were debating Healthcare the original ACA was not acceptable and they went back and reintroduce it again. I have to do further research. What I do know the republicans had ample time and again they never did offer an alternative. I do not lie. Concerning the people that got drop or had to pay a higher deductible because their income was too high. To my understanding the ACA never was for rich people that had money. It was design in order for everyone to afford affordable healthcare. Take for example when you apply for housing they will look at your income and any assets that you may have. The rent is adjusted to your income. Therefore, with the ACA it boils back to your income. If you are rich you have no need for the ACA. That to me is common sense. After all when it was passed remember President Obama said if you have good insurance you can keep it. So I still say all the ACA needs is correcting and not repealing it. This insurance should have been a single pair insurance. It will be more expensive to repeal. Daniel please tell your Senators and constituents to not repeal but fix it. By the way the Republicans is doing the same thing by leaving the Democrats out of it. If you are honest the only reason they want to repeal because the ACA came from this country first Black President. I believe if Mr. Bush or Hillary or anyone else had passed this same insurance it would have been accepted. This is what this country is going to have to really work on and that is Race Relations. The same red blood that runs through the Black person also runs through the White person. According to the Apostle Paul we are all one in Christ Jesus. Besides President Obama was not 100% Black; he was Mixed. Matter of fact to me President Obama thought just like a White person. After all he was raise by his Caucasian White Mother and Grandparents. I still say the ACA was a good bill and I hope you can see it for what it is. And, if by change Congress doesn’t have enough votes to repeal let us work together to make it better.

    • Richard Autry

      When it comes to the ACA, there is no reason. The Chump in Chief wouldn’t bend on any of the issues there, and there was no compromise allowed on it. Adn with the ACA is, you get taxed and still get nothing in regard to healthcare.

      • Pastor W. C.

        Again Mr. Autry the ACA, is a good piece of legislation. Mr. Obama did try to work with Congress especially the Republican constituents but they wanted it another way. Why is it when Mr. Obama repeatedly ask them to give me your plan they could not. Mr. Obama was willing to compromise. I still say you are wrong but you do not see me calling names like you are doing. When you go “low” I go high. Still this argument will probably go on long after Mr. Trump officially takes office. Already some Republicans have mixed reservations about scrapping or repealing and they do not have a plan to offer in its place. What you all need to do is get a little more compassion and a lot more Jesus in your life.

  • TruePatriotInTX

    With all of the companies staying in the USA so far, Mexico is already beginning to pay for the wall. It was shameful how the original law was just swept aside by congress.

      • TruePatriotInTX

        Pastor, sorry but I don’t believe you are one. I acknowledge anytime I am wrong on something and invite additional education. As for the ACA, the Republicans have offered 12 different alternative plans to the Obama and he won’t even consider them, not one. Ask Marsha Blackburn how her visit went when she presented her plan. Did you hear that on the news? Of course you didn’t and if you get all your news from mainstream media, I pity you because they lie, distort and omit real news that they should be reporting. I have seen what the ACA has done, it has cost my wife her job and I have worked in the insurance industry for years, though not any more. These insured people you speak of cannot use the insurance because the deductibles are too high. Most of them had no idea what a deductible is and the insurance companies count on that. The insured find out the hard way when they go to get healthcare and then receive a bill in full for the services. How many stories have you heard about this? FOX is the only news outlet reporting it.
        God intended for us to take care of the least, not by paying their way in total, but to help a fellow man get up when he is down, it is called Charity. Welfare is the exact opposite of that and the forced subsidies for healthcare, which is not a right, is in direct violation of that. I think you need some serious study time of the bible and subsequent prayer because you have the most distorted view I have ever seen from a pastor.

        • Pastor W. C.

          I check out several news media. You say I am wrong and I still say you are wrong. My views are what they are. True we are not to give hand-outs to the poor but if someone needs a helping hand then they should receive it. Do not get me wrong brother True Patriot but you are looking at one side of the picture. You are looking through a glass dimly and it is distorted. Again do not get me wrong but you are only seeing things through the eyes of White European Caucasian. God knows I love all people and I too am of Mixed Heritage (White, Native American and African American). Another scripture for you to read is Psalm 140:12 for your understanding. I would like to invite you if you so choose and it might help you understand Theology coming from an African American perspective. Try to get the book: White Women’s Christ and Black Women’s Jesus by Jacquelyn Grant. Although this book is about God from a Women’s experience however, it can be applied from a Man’s experience. In other words a Feminist (White Women) Christology and Womanist (Black Women) response. Black women experience played the difference. Black women still are oppressed. According to Hooks Black women experience White women supremacist. Caucasian people according to Grant book experience White & Black women experience as different. To sum it up Brother, Caucasians only see God as a supreme being worthy to be acknowledged (only from the intellect or mind) however, Black women have a personal relationship with God they can relate to Jesus. Jesus came to set the captives free and proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Even if some individuals are not racist, it is the movement that has been so structured, and therefore takes on a racist character. In a racist society, the oppressor assumes the power of definition and control while the oppressed is objectified and perceived as a thing. That is wrong … according to the teaching of the Bible but my Brother you would not understand that because your thinking and views have been distorted. One final thought from this book of Grant Christology is especially problematic for feminists. Because Jesus was undeniably male and because the Christian church claims him as the unique God-bearer, feminist christology confronts the dual tasks of explaining the significance of a male God-bearer … The ISBN: 1-55540-302-6 and Code: 01 01 64 I am sure you can go to any library and they should have it or can get the book for you if you are interested. For way too long people have been misinformed because you all listen to extremists views that are not right.

          Getting back to what you said about the news media I do not listen to Fox News or C Span because they are nothing but propaganda. If President Obama turn down the suggestion what this person was offering it is because what she was proposing would cost the deficit to go up higher. Or, it would not have covered everything. Listen President Obama said he has no problem about repealing the plan if the Republicans shows him a plan that will not discriminate from pre-existing conditions, Children are able to stay on their parents policies until they reach age 27 or 28. President Obama and Hillary admitted that the Affordable Care Act only needs fixing. Remember the Supreme Court have already stated that it is nothing but a tax. I do not know what insurance you were speaking of on the exchange however, they chose the higher deductible. I had the change if I wanted to go that route choosing a higher deductible where the plan would practically pay for everything. It is the same with automotive insurance, personal or health insurance. One final thought I know the Bible and I know what’s in it. I know how to interpret the Bible. Even if I just happen to run up against scripture that I do not quite understand this is why they have made commentaries, Bible dictionaries to help us out. I suggest you too reread your bible and you need to get in a church that has serious bible study or find you a study partner where both of you can study for understanding and perception. That is your opinion if you think my view is distorted but I am what I am; and I am a Public Theologian that just happen to be a pastor of a mainstream church. I hope this helps you understand my Personal Theology and that is I believe in God. I believe that the Lord manifested self through the incarnation and became Jesus the Christ through the Holy Spirit. In my denomination we search the scriptures for answers and applies it to everyday life. I hope my brother I have not made you angry because it was never my intentions but I felt like I need to try to explain it to you. Remember Jesus said the poor you will always have with you (Mark 14:7). I truly hope you read the scriptures that I gave you in my previous statement to you and you understand. Remember brother I am praying for you and all people … Peace

  • Dr. Richard Stoll

    Ya know, if the gov can pick out a $100 bill from a satellite in someone’s back pocket why would they need a multi-billion dollar wall for border protection? Wouldn’t digital surveillance and near instant response from drones be much more effective and much less expensive? Oh wait, maybe a “friend of Don” will have the contract for the wall.

    • spaul40

      What are you going to do with the drones; shoot the illegal aliens? I don’t think so. How about sending them welcome cards. Would that please you? Let’s build the damn wall!

    • Kissingfan

      That was Killery’s trick while Sec. of State. She gave contracts for the rebuilding of Haiti to contractors that donated to the Clinton Foundation. Then they had to again contribute when they finished their contract. I think Trump should use the illegals who have already entered the country on the wall construction project. Then when ready for the last section is going up, put them all on the south side to make sure the last panel fits in place!

    • Richard Autry

      Perhaps it’s because satellite surveillance of the illegals doesn’t keep them from taking jobs or abusing the welfare system. Of course, all the Congressional officials will be fighting tooth and nail to have the wall built in their respective states (TX, NM, AZ, & CA) by companies they pick.

  • rick meek

    Since Reagan was in office they have promised to end illegal immigration – Reagan only gave amnesty in exchange for congress to agree to enforce the laws as is —- of course – congress reneged…..The fence act has been law since 2006 but ya’ll can see what they’ve done —- NOTHING….

    • Richard Autry

      Naturally, the Damnocrats were in charge of Congress when Reagan was in office which is why he was unable to complete his agenda.

  • Kissingfan

    Good deal! This will be one way to get it done. Then Trump can bill Mexico for the finished wall. Sounds like a plan! Now let’s get it done.

  • Dennis B Anderson

    Each state has its own penal system and they could contribute the man power. Put the prisoners to work. That wall could turn into a high speed rail system that goes across the southern states. Mexico can make the concrete inner locking cement blocks, and the Corp of Engineers with heavy duty copters can set them in place. If Mexico doesnt want to cooperate. kick them all out of the USA that dont belong here.. Take back your NAFTA also. Its time to get real again.

  • Mace Tofu

    They should put a freeway on top of the wall so people could drive from California to Texas. And a train line right next to it. And the National guard bases on the other side.

  • jcadla

    The “Tweet” is the epitome of transparency, the way to keep Americans aware of just what is going on,-who’s for us and who’s against us. It is a well used tool.

  • Martin Alonso Zuniga

    Countries that do enforce the Laws do not have any criminal illegal invasion.
    Hint: Mexico and Canada. Simple.
    No need for a wall. No freebies=no illegals.
    Instead use those monies here, after all, they are taxpayers monies.
    Hint: Increase wages, increase SS and the citizenry will spend here in USA.
    The result: The economy will improve greatly for all Americans.

    the Republican leaders to give him a plan. The Republicans still have
    not come up with another plan but some of you want to repeal. The
    Affordable Care Act is working; not only is it adding additional money
    but more people have insurance. The only thing that is needed that it
    still needs fixing. You call yourself a True Patriot from Texas and yet
    you or some of your people do not want to help people who are less
    fortunate than yourself. I am not talking about a hand-out but if a
    person comes knocking at your door at midnight would you get up? Read
    Luke 11:5-8. He did not want to get up because of the hour however,
    because of his boldness or importance he did get up and gave him all the
    bread that he wanted. The scriptures teaches we are our brothers
    keepers, this means people that do not look like you and I. I truly
    hope you see another way. Peace
