Paul Ryan is trying to take a victory lap this morning. You see, he was supposed to unveil his massive 1.3 trillion omnibus bill yesterday, but a wrench was thrown into his plans at the last minute.
That wrench was YOU!
We bombarded Congress with more than a hundred thousand FaxBlasts yesterday demanding that they block Paul Ryan’s surrender bill from moving forward. Your activism forced Ryan and McConnell to hold meetings well into the night.
This morning, they are trying to claim victory. They are trying to claim they “heard you” and listened. They’re lying.
The omnibus bill now contains funding for just 33 miles of border fencing. It explicitly prohibits Trump from using the funding to build out any of his border wall prototypes. This isn’t conservatism, this is pathetic.
The omnibus bill also maintains all funding for sanctuary cities for another year, even if they completely refuse to cooperate with immigration agents and release illegals back onto the streets. This isn’t conservatism, this is pathetic.
And the omnibus bill claims to crack down on federal funding for abortion, but the reality is that it will simply renew the same Hyde Amendment that has been included in spending bills since 1976. Planned Parenthood will still get all of their funding. This isn’t conservatism, this is pathetic.
Democrats are ecstatic. They get pretty much everything they want without being forced to shoulder another government shutdown. Paul Ryan is taking a play right out of John Boehner’s playbook. He believes this bill will pass with more Democrat votes than Republican votes.
You MUST stop him!
Do you know what the GOP leadership called the amendments to defund Planned Parenthood, defund sanctuary cities, and build the wall? They called them “poison pill” amendments.
It has gotten to the point where the GOP is calling their own campaign promises “poison pills.”
Republicans have controlled Congress and the Presidency for a year and a half and all we have seen is Ryan and McConnell run away from their promises.
President Trump is just waiting to sign these bills into law, but all of a sudden the GOP is too cowardly to fight for it.
And now, they’re trying to claim victory.
No, keeping sanctuary cities funded is NOT a victory.
No, blocking a border wall from being built is NOT a victory.
No, giving Planned Parenthood all of its funding is NOT a victory.
Do not let them get away with this!
Don’t let Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell get away with this surrender! Send your instant FaxBlast before it’s too late and FORCE Congress to hold the line on these Conservative promises or else be removed!
