    Well, it’s not hard to tell who has the gavel again. “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”

    If the Founding Fathers saw what Congress has become, my boggles the mind at this type of corruption.

    New budget and it's full of landmines for the POTUS.
    Hopefully the White House legal staff is wise to the subterfuge and Trump refuses to sign it into law.
    Let them pass a continuing resolution for a week or two until this 1100 page nightmare can be vetted.

    The demonrats have inserted language into the bill that will make building the wall nearly impossible without battling for every inch in court.

    He thinks he will be able to grab funds from elsewhere, and says that he's more than ready for any legal battle the dems come up with.

    And in reply Pelosi says the next president (meaning Democrat) may in response declare a national emergency on guns? Last time I looked there wasn't a constitutional amendment about building border walls.

    Dear President Trump,

    If you're going down, go down swinging!!! You have a whole lot of people hating you but remember you have a whole lot of people praying for you, your family, Vice President Pence and his family, and some of us are even praying for our and your enemies like Jesus told us to do. Now THAT'S LOVE!! You just do what is Godly, moral, and what is best in protecting this country because that is one of the duties you assumed as President. We know you aren't without sin...none of us are....stay strong, Sir!!

    Love and Regards,

    Not a single member of Congress read the Patriot Act. But it passed into law under Bush43.
