WEB Notes: You are going to love the Tweet below from the Treasury Secretary. They removed the debt limit and that protects the faith and credit of the US Government? Are you kidding me people? That is called wreckless spending. This is spending with a blank check with no oversight. Where are the adults in the room? Remember, this administration double spending over the previous Socialist President, so what does that tells us about the Republican one?

President Donald Trump signed a major budget plan into law Friday, ending the year’s second government shutdown hours after it started.

Both chambers of Congress passed a short-term funding bill in the wee hours of Friday and cleared the way for a massive boost to military and domestic spending hours after funding lapsed at midnight. The government partially shut down for the second time in less than a month.

The massive legislation cleared Congress after opposition delayed or threatened its passage in both chambers. The House narrowly passed the budget bill by 240 to 186 before dawn Friday, then sent it to Trump.

Rand Paul

“I can’t in all good honesty, in all good faith, just look the other way because my party is now complicit in the deficits,” Paul said on the Senate floor hours before the chamber voted.

Paul and most of the Republicans who voted against the budget plan supported the massive tax cuts the GOP passed into law late last year. The CBO estimates that the law will add more than $1 trillion to federal budget deficits over a decade, even after economic growth is taken into account.
