With friends like this, who needs enemies? The Republican Senate today passed the $1 trillion continuing resolution that contains none of the promised cuts to the federal budget promised by the Republican Party and by Donald Trump.

The vote was 79-18. The resolution now heads to the White House, where Trump is expected to sign it eagerly.

A look at the names in the Senate who voted against this bill essentially lists the few remaining real conservatives left. Such people are now a minority, surrounded by corrupt deal makers who have no interest in the needs of the nation.

    Yeah, freedom is impopular. What do you think that the majority will do about it?
    Trump is not a moral white knight saving your princess. He’s a ruthless pragmatic bringer of his own power with the sword held high as expressed by the will of the people’s vote. There will be blood. That’s why people voted for him. To draw this blood.

    The trivial mechanics of Obamacare will be take care of later. When the Democrats beg for it.

    Why did Graham vote nay, unless there wasn’t enough money for war in Ukraine … ?

    Well, we tried.

    But what are they going to do when they run out of other people’s money?

    Well done to my state of Iowa. Both Senators voted no. Also, I was surprised to see Sasse as a non-vote. I assume he would have voted “nay” had he voted.
