DEMS CELEBRATE 'REPUBLICAN' BUDGET!, Thank You Paul Ryan and Panty-Wearing No Guts Republicans

Don't believe the hype of this WaPo report.  This is not President Trump's budget. 
However, my condemnation of Paul Ryan and the GOPers in The House is accurate,  President Trump has a very tough job ahead of him because the party he leads is made of cowards, cry babies, men of dubious sexual orientation, and a few Patriots.  That's not a winning team to go up against cut throat Democrats.   
Washington Post reports Democrats think they have set the stage to block President Trump’s legislative priorities for years to come by winning major concessions in a spending bill to keep the government open.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) secured nearly $5 billion in new domestic spending by exploiting disagreements between Trump and GOP lawmakers over spending priorities.

Democrats’ lopsided victory on the five-month deal, which is likely to be approved this week, means it will be very difficult — if not impossible — for the GOP to exert its will in future budget negotiations, including when it comes to Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint.

That’s because Republicans are hopelessly divided over how much to spend on government programs, with a small but vocal minority unwilling to support such measures at all. That has forced Republicans to work with Democrats to avoid politically damaging government shutdowns.

  1. You're dreaming
    This IS Trump's budget
    He's NOT a conservative

  2. Why are Republicans so afraid of a government shutdown? Most of the people who voted for them would love to see about 80% of the government shut down permanently. If the Republicans would dig in their heels and say "we're not going to approve the budget until the Dems agree to cut X, Y, and Z", and that resulted in a shutdown for a couple of weeks, most Republican voters would be cheering.
