House Rules Committee Releases Official Budget Proposal
Here it is! Thanks to the House Rules Committee (but not really) Americans were left aggravated after the official proposed $1 trillion budget was released.
The plan is 1,665 pages long. In my mind, it is a whole lot of nonsense no one wants to read. Like that book, your teacher assigned you to read for the summer, but you already know how it ends, and you hate it.
The citizens of America were given a 72-hour window to take in and “read the bill.” As you can see, most of Trump’s initial promises and plans were omitted.
As a result, Donald Trump wants to shut down the government in September, which now seems as a legitimate solution.
Many things were boosted in this bill including: military spending ($12.5 billion) and border security ($1.5 billion). Still, the biggest plan ever, the security wall along the US-Mexico border was dropped.
However, you should look at the idiotic things money were spent on, such as a $295 million fund given to Puerto Rico’s Medicaid program and $100 million funding for opioid addiction.
“Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) boasted that they were able to force Republicans to withdraw more than 160 unrelated policy measures, known as riders, including those that would have cut environmental funding and scaled back financial regulations for Wall Street,” the Post reported.
“Among the bipartisan victories is $407 million in wildfire relief for western states and a decision to permanently extend a program that provides health-care coverage for coal miners,” the Post reported.
The budget also dropped the deportation funding applied for sanctuary cities.
Jennifer Hing, a spokeswoman for House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen encouraged everyone this was a step forward: “The agreement will move the needle forward on conservative priorities and will ensure that the essential functions of the federal government are maintained,” Hing said.

I am sure everything is easy in the made-up liberal world!
