Remember the 2010 GOP “Pledge to America”? Paul Ryan hopes you don’t. Especially some of these key pieces.
An arrogant and out-of-touch government of self-appointed elites makes decisions, issues mandates, and enacts laws without accepting or requesting the input of the many.What have Republican voters gotten for believing the 2010 “Pledge”? After voting in solid majorities in both the House and Senate, it’s business as usual, as if Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were still in charge. Perhaps they are.
An unchecked executive, a compliant legislature, and an overreaching judiciary have combined to thwart the will of the people and overturn their votes and their values, striking down long- standing laws and institutions and scorning the deepest beliefs of the American people.
What has this latest budget deal done to thwart the Obama agenda? Very little. The omnibus bill fully funds Obama’s executive amnesty program. Sanctuary cities are funded -- so much for Kate Steinle’s tragic death bringing attention to sanctuary cities like San Francisco. Refugee resettlement programs are funded, allowing thousands of “refugees” into the country. With access to federal benefits. Ask Europe how that’s working out.
Worried about refugees from countries sympathetic to Islamic jihad? No problem. The student and fiancée visa programs are funded, along with green card and other refugee programs. Did the San Bernardino shootings not happen? Any lessons learned?
Illegal aliens coming across the southern border? Ryan’s bill funds their resettlement. Must be comforting to families terrorized by illegals. There is even funding for the release of criminal aliens. Let’s not leave out the bill quadrupling H-2B visas for unskilled guest workers. Unemployed Americans must be thrilled about more competition for entry level jobs. Illegals even have their tax credits funded by Ryan’s bill.
Any funds allocated to complete the southern border fence promised in 2006? No. Somehow Congress ran out of money for that. But not for a tall security fence around Paul Ryan’s own home. If fences don’t work, why does he and his family need one?
And there is more. Planned Parenthood is fully funded, despite their baby butchery. No funding cuts to ObamaCare either, kicking down the road some of the onerous ObamaCare taxes. Even Obama’s global warming climate change bill receives funding without any restriction
Ryan can’t fund the fence on our southern border, but he can sure fund everything else.
Dumbplumber's take: I once hoped that all these traitors, backstabbers and liberal liars would be taken out by a sniper's bullet. But not now. I wish them to suffer the pain, agony and slow irreversible death by natural causes. A sniper's bullet is too good for them.
