Traitorous anal orifices. They’d rather hand over the country to the dummocraps, which would bring an end to the United States, as we know it, in but a few years. We’d be overrun with illegals, terrorists, drug dealers, sex traffickers-—is this what these despicable RINO _____s want?

Some of those are not “conservative” senators at all.

The reason the bill has come forward is simple: Portman wants lawmakers to create budgets while discouraging "last-minute, haphazard stopgap" measures, like continuing resolutions.

"This legislation will accomplish that goal, providing lawmakers with more time to reach a responsible resolution to budget negotiations, giving federal workers and their families more stability, and ensuring we avoid disruptions that ultimately hurt our economy, taxpayers and working families," Portman said in a statement."

They're not following current law, what makes anyone think the congress will follow another law?

Those senators sure aren’t “conservative” in my book. I want the executive branch or legislative branch as the case may be, to have this leverage.

Why bother? The constitution is just a scrap of paper. The
runaway government proves it daily.

“...Some of those are not “conservative” senators at all....”
GOPe = RAT = UniParty = Deep State = Communists = Fake Americans
Yeah, they may all wear different hats, but rest assured, their goals are ALL the same. And it isn’t just Trump they want to put down, but all of us....they want to put us down like rabid dogs. The rest of the “uwnashed masses” just need to abide by the annual April 15th deadline like good little serfs.

No one reads the actual article. The point of the proposal is to cut spending by 1% every 90 days if Congress doesn’t have spending bill instead of a continuing resolution. It seems a step in the right direction. Wouldn’t seem to change the wall debate.
