If the Democrats figure this out, figure out this is whats going on, then they might try to earmark everything, or they might try to put something in legislation specifying that not a single penny of the defense budget or any other budget can be used to build a wall or, as they might say, Nothing over $1.3 billion.Hopefully others who know more will comment on this. I do not trust Rush L much, btw...(and I started listening to him when he was local in Sacramento.)
I have never read or got any inkling from anywhere that every $ the military spends must be specifically authorized by Congress; that's what it sounds as though RL is saying. Doesn't make any sense to me, either. Sometimes the military may have to make quick decisions about spending, such as in wartime, etc. They can't wait for Congress on such matters.
But they can add a sentence that says “And not one penny can be spent to build a wall.”
