Meet the Eight Republicans Who Voted With Democrats to Pass Anti-Wall Budget

Linkedin Share

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

That has to be what President Trump was thinking.

Here’s why…

From The Hill:

The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.

The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.

The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

Again, the names:

-Elise Stefanik (NY)

-Will Hurd (TX)

-Fred Upton (MI)

-John Katko (NY)

-Brian Fitzpatrick (PA)

-Greg Walden (OR)

Abortion? No big deal.

Recklessly wasting taxpayer dollars? Whatever.

Building a border wall to keep out intruders and defend the American people? PREPOSTEROUS!

That’s my impersonation of a liberal.

Check out President Trump’s thoughts on the “immoral” wall…

Well, then you got to do something about the Vatican, because the Vatican has the biggest wall of them all. The wall is immoral? Look at all of the countries that have walls, and they work 100%. It’s never going to change.

WATCH:

Trump on foriegn aid:

We spend in Afghanistan more in one month than what we’re talking about for the wall. The $5.6 billion is such a small number, literally, it’s one month in Afghanistan, and we’re talking about national security. This isn’t just a border, this is national security.

Democrats are back in control of the House and they’re ready to shake things up.

The past two years were going too smoothly for America.

Dems can’t let that continue to happen.

From Daily Wire:

In between investigations into the Trump Administration, the Democrat-controlled House plans to pursue huge government expansions, Fox News reports, including a proposal to make Medicare available to all Americans.

Presumptive Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Progressive Caucus, and other Democratic leaders released a series of draft agendas last week, outlining their competing plans for the first few key months of the half-Democratic Congress. The “Better Deal” and the “Green New Deal” — the two most popular legislative platforms at the moment — both represent billion-dollar expansions that would put the government in control of everything from health care to higher education.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), like every single member of her party, does not understand what it means to budget.

Alexandria claims the Pentagon lost $21 trillion.

There’s a huge problem with AOC’s math:

D’OH! The numbers just don’t add up, Alexandria.

Just like a Democrat Socialist, isn’t it? Pulling money from out of thin air!

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:

By the looks of the picture below, she’s not making friends right off the bat.

Pic of the year?

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.

See it:

What’s the problem?

Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Facepalm.
