A vote for this bill is a vote to force American taxpayers to fund sanctuary cities, to fund Planned Parenthood, and to bailout insurance companies under Obamacare.
"The fine print in the bipartisan 2017 budget plan includes several paragraphs designed to prevent Donald Trump's deputies from building a border wall with the reserve cash routinely stored in agency savings accounts. ... Read more here.
