Thread: Trump signs massive two-year budget deal into law

  1. #1

    Trump signs massive two-year budget deal into law

    The deal sets federal spending limits, increasing military and nonmilitary spending. Military spending would increase to $738 billion from $716 billion in fiscal 2020, which begins Oct. 1, and to $740.5 billion the subsequent fiscal year.

    Nonmilitary programs, such as immigration and border enforcement, Medicaid, forest management and health programs, would grow to $632 billion from $605 billion next year and $634.5 billion the next year. It also adds to the deficit, which has risen since Trump came into office.

    Another step towards balancing that budget in eight years. Meh- maybe after the election sometime. Maybe.

    Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!

    President Donald Trump is said to not be worried about setting the US up for a massive debt crisis because he doesn't think it'll erupt until after he leaves office.

    Sources close to the presidency told The Daily Beast that Trump had repeatedly shrugged off any concerns about the rising national debt because it was projected to come to a head only after he would finish a second term.

    During a 2017 briefing with senior officials, Trump responded to a presentation of charts and graphics by saying, "Yeah, but I won't be here," according to a source The Daily Beast said witnessed the comment.

    Hillary would have signed a bill that probably spent even more

    So from that perspective, this is actually a spending cut if you think about it

    If Trump gets re-elected, he will push for balanced budget in his 7th and 8th year.

    They stopped pretending to care about the size of government some time ago.

    Wow, the trumpettes and shylls must have missed this news. Why aren't they in this thread to tell us what a great job their Authoritarian Idol is doing? Maybe they're too busy trying to convince everyone that we need to wall our population in like east germany or north korea.

    The trumpettes and shylls seemed to have missed this thread entirely! Why aren't they blowing this thread up to a dozen pages with telling us how great trump is doing with handling the economy? Are they only here to call people communists?

    Since @dannno will never post in this thread, I'll do it for him.

    Quote Originally Posted by dannno View Post

Then Trump says, "I'm not signing this crap, I heard on the news it included a tunnel from NY to NJ.." So he threatened to veto it, then they said, "Oh, you MUST sign it, it has all this great military stuff in it, don't you like the military? You don't want to shut down the military do you? Think about the vets!! You've gotta sign it!!!!"

    Then Trump was probably like, "Alright, well I hope there is nothing else really egregious I should know about in there, is there?"

    "Oh no, Mr. President, all completely normal stuff, we promise!!"

    Of course Trump didn't have time to read it, but when he finds out they put this stink bomb in there, he will be way more pissed than he was about a tunnel from NY to NJ...

    It's really odd that the trumpettes and shylls haven't blown this thread up to 10 pages of calling everyone a communist!

    Since the trumpettes and shylls don't seem to want to come in here at all and tell everyone how great it is for trump to raise the debt ceiling, it's almost like having one small corner of RPF that is still RPF. It might even be possible to post actual liberty content here in this thread, without being called a communist, or being subjected to 38+ posts a day of police state propaganda under the guise of immigration policy!
