Ingraham: President Trump has second thoughts about the expenditure

With the seizure of caps gone, the Republicans, the poor associate with the Democrats. Yes, you don’t spend money on the things that we should defund financing on all the things the President swore.

Congressional Republican leaders released the final version of a proposed $1.3 trillion spending bill Wednesday evening, about 52 hours before the deadline to avoid a partial government shutdown.

The 2,232-page “omnibus” bill, public hours have been made to the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan, R-Wis., dashed through a Washington snowstorm to meet with the President of Trump at the White house amid concerns that Trump was his support for the package, swaying. The White house later said the President supported the legislation, even as some conservative Republicans protested, the size of the spending increases and the rapid adoption of the law.

The powerful house rules Committee was scheduled to meet later Wednesday the bill ready for debate in the full house. Leaders said they hoped to start the vote as soon as Thursday, but a temporary solution may be necessary to ensure that Federal agencies remain open to midnight on Friday, when funding runs out for the government.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., signaled his support for the law, he said, “puts workers and their families.”

“Each account requires compromises, and there was a lot here, but at the end of the day, we are Democrats feel very good, because so many of our priorities were included for the middle class,” said Schumer.

In contrast, the conservative house freedom Caucus, said that all 32 members vote unanimously against the bill.

“The policy proposals set out in this bill are not consistent with what we told the American people that we would do, if you have sent us to Washington. Many of the policies in the bill are in fact the opposite of what we promised,” the caucus-to-read statement. “This is an insult to American taxpayers, as well as many rank-and-file representatives, who had nothing to say in the omnibus negotiations.”

To avoid both sides of the aisle very interested in a repeat of the shutdown in January, which came after legislators clashed over the state of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which gave protection to illegal immigrants brought into the country as children. DACA has determined that it is delayed this month, but the expiration date was through court orders.

The bill does not contain the DACA-determination and also had limited financial resources, border security measures, President trombone encountered.

Trump had called for $ 1.6 billion for the 74 km of the border wall, with an additional 1.1 billion dollars for technology and other assets. Instead, the omnibus appropriates $1.57 billion for the barriers along the border, but none of it for the new prototype, which he recently visited, in California.

The money approximately 33 miles of new construction in the San Diego area and the repair of approximately 60 miles of existing segments, some as double dikes, along the Rio Grande in Texas would Finance.

In a victory for immigrant advocates, negotiators rejected Trump to rent, the plans for hundreds of new border patrol and immigration enforcement agents.

“We are disappointed that we have no agreement on the dreamer of protection, which were worthy of of those Patriotic young people,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who swore that the Democrats “ask for more, the speaker, to protect us, a voice, a dreamer, and honor our values.”

The Associated Press reported that the bill would include $80 billion bump for the Pentagon, what Trump and GOP hawks an important victory, because it brings the military budget to over 700 billion dollars.

In a statement, Ryan said the agreement “marks the beginning of a new era for the United States military.”

“Our service members are the best in the world, but the poor state of our military readiness, it has left under-equipped and underprepared for the threats they are exposed to,” explains Ryan. “This legislation meets our promise of rebuilding the United States military.”

“No bill of this size is perfect,” Ryan added. “But this legislation addresses key priorities and makes us stronger at home and abroad.”

The bill also contains the so-called “Fix NICS,” a measure meant to strengthen the Federal background-check-tried system for gun purchases as the Congress, to respond, to react to the deadly attack on a Florida high school and other shootings.

The measure would not meet the financing of the States to comply with the existing National Instant Criminal Background Check system, and to punish and Federal authorities. The bipartisan measure was approved in the house, but stalled in the Senate amid concerns from some Republicans about the restriction of gun rights, without due process, and complaints from the Democrats, it does not go far enough, to force of arms.

“The calls from the American people to address gun violence in our schools and communities were deafening, and I am grateful that we will soon get that chance,” Senate majority whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said a driving force behind the law, that. “Fixing the background-check system helps to save lives and reduce the likelihood of what occurred in the Park landscape and Sutherland Springs from happening again.”

The spending bill also includes more than $2 billion to the rail to install the officers in the school and police officers on how to identify signs of potential violence and intervene early, to metal detectors and other steps, “hard” schools, to prevent violence.

The house approved the STOP violence in schools Act, earlier this month, but the measure was not in the Senate.

The bill says that the US can do centers for disease control and prevention, research on gun violence, even if not to occur, an idea that Democrats pushed.

The plan also takes a much-discussed to provide the money for a rail tunnel under the Hudson River, a top priority for Schumer. Trump had to provide, vowed to veto the bill over the. However, funding the project would remain eligible for Federal funding, however, and a Schumer aide said it was likely to win more than half of the $ 900 million sought for the project this year.

Both parties touted $4.6 billion in total funds to fight the nation’s opioid addiction epidemic, a $3 billion. Child care and development “would increase the receive block grants”, a huge $2.4 billion to $5.2 billion. And an Obama-era-Transport-grant program, known as the TIGERS would see its budget tripled to $ 1.5 billion. Dream start for children of preschool age would $increase of 610 million euros, while an additional $would go 2.4 billion for the child care grants.
