Blame it all on Paul: No money for Trump’s wall, plus 6 other GOP issues missing from $1T Punk Paul Ryan spending bill

The American people are sophisticated enough to know that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is ground zero for the undermining of the Trump agenda.
  He and the fifty or so other cowardly Republicans hiding in the shadows who refuse to back up Trump are a disgrace to the nation from now until the end of time!       

Ncclatchy reports congressional negotiators have come up with a $1.07 trillion plan to keep the government running through the end of September – but there’s a lot missing from the 1,665-page bill.

And much of it involves items that President Donald Trump promised during his campaign and the early days of his presidency.

Here’s a list of GOP-friendly issues missing from the spending bill.

Border wall 
The bill includes $1.5 billion for border security, but noticeably absent is any funding for a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, a major promise of the Trump administration to curb illegal immigration. Instead, the money will go toward enhanced technology and improving existing infrastructure.

Planned Parenthood 
There are no cuts for Planned Parenthood, a target of abortion opponents and many Republicans for its provision of abortion services. Republicans have threatened to shut down the federal government in the past over Planned Parenthood funding.
