Posted on 12/05/2022 6:27:23 PM PST by ChicagoConservative27
On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Kudlow,” Senate Minority Whip Sen. John Thune (R-SD) responded to a question on the possibility of a government shutdown by stating that “anything right now is on the table” and whether a deal is reached largely depends on how badly Democrats “want to get a deal to not blow it up with all kinds of new non-defense-related spending.” Thune also argued that the massive increase in spending “has contributed to and been largely responsible for the run-up that we’ve seen in inflation.”

Thune got religion?
When he first ran he was pretty conservative I think.
Compared to Tiny Tom Daschle?
He’s slid a bunch into the Turtle camp since.
Who would trust what he says today?
“new non-defense-related spending.”
Yeah, the hundreds of billions to be pi$$ed away in Ukraine are off the table, can’t be touched. It’s disgusting to watch the corrupt Uniparty in action in DC.
There should be no budget deals until all illegals are removed from this country. That includes the Dreamers. I don’t give a damn that you came here to make your life better; stay in your own country and fight to make it better instead of F up ours.
The Dems can blackmail him by threatening to stop showering Ukraine with taxpayer money. If they do that, Thune will give them whatever they want.
Used to get his Christmas card until I stopped giving him money. Freeze federal spending, stop baseline budgeting and use your testicles—if you have any! The Uniparty is dead set on bankrupting this country. Why do we have to pay interest on printed Money? Who owns this country? We the people or the “federal” reserve, a private bank?
.... Translation ..... Republicans are gonna cave but they will pretend to fight for a few days for effect ...
Begin the count down clock to total republican capitulation. Haven’t we all seen this play before?
He had me fooled for sure.
Between him, Rounds and Noem, South Dakota is a nightmare.
If Noem looked Feinstein or Lofgren, most folks wouldn’t give her a second look, no matter how Conservative they try to tell folks she is.
I saw the interview. Same B.S. Republicans want the money just as bad as Democrats. There is only the UNIPARTY. It’s Washington against all of us working stiffs.
Don’t neglect ‘ol’ “COVID “Vaccines” are safe and effective” Dusty Johnson.....
Yeah, but how are they gonna be able to vote for democrats if we don’t let them all in?
Ha-ha! Until they do!
I don’t know who that is but I’ll take your word for it.
Either way, South Dakota, from the little I’ve read about it and the way they handle LLCs/Corporations/S-Corps, etc, isn’t exactly the paragon of integrity. I’m not an MBA, but from what I’ve read, they’ve opened that place up to be almost like Dubai, with all the shady business crap, in an attempt to bring in revenue.
Either way, being on the outside, looking in, the place seems to suck and their voters aren’t any better than the ones in Utah, Florida, South Dakota, and South Carolina, Iowa, West Virginia. I could go on, but what’s the point. Alaska, the ultimate in independence(supposedly), just elected 2 Democrats.
Although, I would like to Mt Rushmore and the Crazy Horse carving.
They’re just big chunks of rock. Why would you want to mount them?
Was typing too fast and texting someone at the same time.
I would like to SEE/VISIT Mt Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monuments.
