OTRES: Border Wall Wont Cost A Cent, Ryan Not Acting Legit
Category : The Rod Eccles Show
The fight over the border wall is now what you thought it would be. In fact those who seem to be against the wall proposed by President Trump while on the campaign trail back in 2016, are not those who you would expect.
President Trump has agreed to put off the talk of funding the border wall for now but the reason is simply because Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House who happens to be a Republican, will not go to bat for the proposal.
After all the wall that is being proposed at the moment is going to be really cheap and Americans could have the wall paid for easily by simple changes to the tax code that is directed at immigrants and those sending US dollars back to their home countries.
President Donald Trump’s request that Congress include $1.4 billion to fund the beginning of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border equals approximately 0.035 percent of what the federal government will spend in total this year
There is no excuse for Ryan and other Blue Blood Republicans to not back the building of the first phase of the border wall. None. The president made it clear what he wanted to be included in the budget negotiations this time around. It was Ryan that cause the president to back down on this line item.
On March 16, President Trump sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan requesting certain items be included in the continuing resolution that Congress must pass to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year after the current CR expires on April 28.
This letter requested approximately $1.4 billion for Trump’s border wall project.
It is a disgrace and Paul Ryan needs to be held accountable.
