“Everything had been moving smoothly until the administration moved in with a heavy hand,” said Matt House, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). “Not only are Democrats opposed to the wall, there is significant Republican opposition as well.”

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said Thursday that he hopes to use negotiations to keep the government open past April 28 in an effort to force Democrats to back some funding for creating a new wall along the U. S-Mexico border — a risky move that could provoke a spending showdown with congressional Democrats next week.

Mulvaney said the White House would be open to funding some of the Democrats’ priorities — such as paying insurance subsidies under the Affordable Care Act — if Democrats agree to fund some of the more controversial parts of President Trump’s agenda, notably the border wall.

The new request threatens to undermine weeks of negotiations between Republican leaders and Democrats in Congress to pass a stopgap spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. The negotiations so far have excluded talk of the border wall, which Republicans have argued should be taken up later to keep the government open.

“We have our list of priorities,” Mulvaney said at an event hosted by the Institute of International Finance. “We want more money for defense. We want to build a border wall. We want more money for immigration enforcement, law enforcement.”

“If they tell us to pound sand, I think that’s probably a disappointing indicator of where the next four years is going to go,” Mulvaney said. “If they tell us, however, that they recognize that President Trump won an election, and he should get some of his priorities funded for that reason, elections have consequences, as folks who win always like to say.”

Sane priorities from the president. /s


Once again we know he can't defund healthcare so that's not a problem.

I say just shut the whole damn thing down and just let roaming barbaric hordes rule the land for the next 4 years.

It would honestly be better than building a pointless wall.

this comment sums it up

Here we have Republican control of the Senate, the House, and the presidency, and yet STILL we are threatened with a shutdown over a piece of utter nonsense.

REPUBLICANS CANNOT GOVERN.

Trump threatens to de-fund Healthcare, which will negatively impact his voter base, AND threatens a shut down, which will negatively affect everyone.


He can't defund it.

of the deal

The Salty Liberal Cucks want Obamacare and we need the wall. Sounds fair.


Except he can't defund healthcare either. He pretty much can't touch the healthcare plan at all nor degrade it.

Lol, Trump. You can't get more ridiculous than this guy.

"If you don't pay for this pointless thing that I said you would never have to pay for, then I'm going to withhold this other thing I said I wouldn't withhold."

Literally
It's like punching a round bottom dummy. We all know it's futile, but occasionally it's fun.

I can't believe these ass***s actually have the gall to act like the last 6 years just didn't happen. Like we f***ing teleported from 2010 to 2016.
