#1 I hate this. I hope Trump veto's it. I would sooner see the government shut down than see this trough full of hog food (trying to avoid vulgarity, barely succeeding). I certainly would not be embarrassed if the government is shut down. I pray for a plague on both their houses. It feels odd, but Rand Paul may be right on this. And the BS that Trump would not sign because of no DACA mention? Does everyone in Washington hate the citizenry of the USA?

#2 There is no reigning in of profligate spending. Congress is the enemy worse than the islamists. They will not reform themselves.

#4 Not so much about the wall and hogs, I think.
More about recovering industry and less about foreign aid.

#5 Phase 1: We can't do anything because we only have the House.
Phase 2: We can't do anything because we only have the House and Senate.
Phase 3: We won't do anything even though we control the House, Senate and White House.

Why should any care if its a republic?

I'm with the plan to spend it into the ground. Then pick up the piece afterwards. A lot of hogs will die. Suffering will be great, but that's how humans have learned the hard lessons for thousands of years. See - Goose, Golden Egg

#6 I think the Republicans just lost the midterms.

#7 I think the Republican brand of the Uniparty just handed some vote share over to the dem brand for the midterms.

#8 And yet we know what it will look like if we allow the Democrats to get majorities in the House and Senate — President Trump won’t be able to do anything at all. I intend to vote for the Tea Partiest candidates in the primaries that I can find, then for the Republican in the general election, in the hope of moving the average further to the right.

#9 Ref #8. Yes, the alternatives to President Trump's strategies are rather ominous. Recovery will be lengthy and painful.
