Republicans Now Refusing To Fund The Wall

We can't afford $12 billion to start on The Wall™, all that money needs to go towards The War™.

From Breitbart:
Federal funding for one of President Donald Trump's premier policy proposals may be excluded from the House GOP's budget for Fiscal Year 2017-2018.

House Democrats, along with a few House Republicans, are working around-the-clock to make sure funding for the estimated $12 billion border wall is not factored into the GOP budget, according to a report by The Hill.

"With Democrats united against new wall funding, it's unlikely the Republicans have the votes to get it through and prevent a government shutdown," The Hill report stated.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, in a statement to The Hill, seemed to concede that border wall funding would not be included in the GOP budget, saying the funds would come at a later date.

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) are the two Republican lawmakers teaming with Democrats to stop the funding of the border wall, despite both representing districts that share a border with Mexico.
I wrote about CIA agent turned top Republican Will Hurd yesterday.
"We recognize the need for robust border security and infrastructure to ensure public safety and increase cross border commerce," Hurd and McSally wrote to the Trump administration in a letter, according to The Hill. "We also have an obligation to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars."

Establishment Republicans in the Senate, like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), are also teaming with Democrats to stop the border wall, with McCain worrying more about the sentiment that Mexicans have towards America.

"There is a lot of anti-American sentiment in Mexico," McCain said during a Senate hearing with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly. "If the election were tomorrow in Mexico, you'd probably have a left-wing, anti-American president in Mexico. That can't be good for America."
Indeed, let's not lose perspective here folks. What really matters is the feelings of Mexicans. That's what this election was all about. Fortunately, our government is working overtime to protect 'dem fee-fees.
