The GOP wants to remind voters for Christmas that they didn’t get the wall:
“Congress steered clear of a shutdown Thursday, but the parties are no closer to resolving the battle over President Donald Trump’s wall as Democratic leaders prepare to meet with Trump next week.
Democrats are urging Republicans to sidestep a Christmastime fight over Trump’s wall and simply extend current border security funding — a proposal the GOP is already panning …”
How many times now has the GOP punted on wall funding?
I honestly don’t know. I just know that conservatives milked Trump’s victory in the 2016 election to pass their own priorities – the tax cuts, banking deregulation, bloating the military – while promising him over and over again that one day they would really, truly fight to fund his border wall.
