Nancy never saw this guy coming – until it was too late.
Nancy Pelosi was already falling apart, but this latest news will surely make her feel worse.
Congress was ramping up to pass a bloated spending bill in time for Memorial Day. It provided funds for disaster relief but stripped out $4.5 billion to secure the border.
Nancy Pelosi herself admitted there was a crisis on the border, but refused to fund a solution.
So, one lone Republican stepped up and blocked it from being passed.
From Fox News:
A lone Republican congressman single-handedly stalled a $19 billion disaster aid bill that lawmakers had expected to pass before the Memorial Day weekend…
Railing against the “swamp,” Roy objected to speeding the measure through a nearly-empty chamber, complained it wasn’t paid for and challenged a decision not to include President Trump’s $4.5 billion request for dealing with the migrant crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Way to go, Chip! No border funding? No pass, Pelosi.
Texas Rep. Chip Roy blocked this massive spending bill from fast-tracking through Congress. Only a fraction of the House was there to vote.
Their tactic was to get it done, with or without the full House, just to force its way through.
But, according to House rules, it only takes one rep to stop a vote. Roy was willing to outrage the entire Democratic Party, to save us from more swamp spending.
What was Pelosi’s response? From the New York Times:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi described Mr. Roy’s move as “last-minute sabotage” that was an “act of staggering political cynicism.”
Poor Pelosi. She just can’t do anything right this week. Maybe there is a big problem, and you just got caught.
I mean, how could Congress spend massive amounts of money on one problem, but throw out another one in the process?
Democrats just admitted there is a crisis on the border. But they refuse to secure it?
Do they even care about Americans? Do they actually want to keep us safe?
Doesn’t seem that way.
Only Roy was willing to do what was necessary. Thanks to him, the vote will be delayed until June.
Perhaps then Congress will wake up and get behind Trump’s plan to secure the border.
