    2017.05.02 - Trump will sign spending bill

    The Latest: White House says Trump will sign spending bill
    May 2, 2017 Updated 5 min ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on Republican efforts in Congress to pass spending legislation and a health care bill (all times local):

    9:00 p.m.
    The White House budget office says the Trump administration is pleased with the $1.1 trillion catchall spending bill and especially the additional money for the Pentagon and border security. The administration is now putting a positive spin on its comments about the spending measure,

    But the White House also says it's "concerned" that lawmakers ignored Trump's request that the spending increases be accompanied by spending cuts elsewhere in the budget.
    The statement arrived on the eve of a House vote on the measure. The White House spent much of the day lashing out against a Washington narrative that minority party Democrats outperformed the White House in the negotiations.
    The White House statement called the bill's $1.5 billion in border security money "a good first step" even though there's no money for Trump's controversial border wall. Aides say Trump will sign the bill.
    5:30 p.m.
    The Trump White House has made it official: The president will sign the $1.1 trillion catchall spending bill.


    The White House budget office says in an official policy statement that the administration is pleased with additional money for the Pentagon and border security, though it's "concerned" that lawmakers ignored Trump's request that the spending increases be accompanied by spending cuts elsewhere in the budget.

    ‘What winning looks like’: Trump gets border wall funds, money for military

    “That’s what we got in this deal and that’s what Democrats don’t want you to know,” Mick Mulvaney, director of the president’s budget office, said at the daily White House press briefing.
    “There’s several hundred of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall,” he said, pointing to a photograph of an existing stretch of the towering steel barrier along the southern border.
    “We are building this now,” he said.

    Do you have an image of the "cyclone fencing"

    From Tillicum's "What winning looks like" link.

    Winning looks like:
    Democrats declared victory on the spending bill Monday, saying they had won every major fight by keeping money flowing to Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities, boosting spending for the National Endowment for the Arts, bailing out Puerto Rico’s troubled Medicaid system, expanding college aid for poor students and preserving the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget.

    The Cheetoh wants women barefoot and pregnant, but if they want to kill their baby, he wants them to do it in a dark filthy apartment with a rusty coat hanger.

    The only art he wants the US to support is velvet Elvis's or dogs playing cards. His ultimate plan is for all water to end up like Flints.

    Please stop posting #FakeNews.

    You may believe you have power because your hooligans currently hold office, but know this:

    Your idea of power is based upon:

    Clay feet, as King Nebuchadnezzar. We know how that went down.

    It can be seen in the press conference video. Looks like tall chain link to me.

    I hate that WebSleuths has decided to take up politics!
    What exactly are we helping others with by taking political sides against each other?
    Neither side, Democrats nor Republicans have taken a stand for or against sleuthing either way to aide getting missing persons home.
    Leave politics out.

    All that money will go to corporations to make weapons we don't need need. None will go to the soldiers we ignore after they're injured- and too often homeless. Fake patriots are the worst. They love to see the big war toys and refuse to acknowledge they've been treating the armed forces like refuse. Disposable. Heartless and greedy.

    I beg to differ. IMO crime will go down under the new admin. What the last one did to LE was disgusting.

    BS. Check out what Trump has ALREADY done for the VA. IMO, the Obama admin hated our vets--the corruption itself was off the charts.

    Doctors, nurses or pharmacy staff at federal hospitals siphoned away controlled substances for their own use or street sales, or drugs intended for patients disappeared.

    Federal authorities are stepping up investigations at Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers due to a sharp increase in opioid theft, missing prescriptions or unauthorized drug use by VA employees since 2009, according to government data obtained by The Associated Press.

    It's my opinion if no link provided.
