Pelosi Claims The State Of The Union Is Not Important To Americans
After announcing the shutdown is over, at least temporarily, Nancy Pelosi felt it was right to have her own say on everything…like she’s the President or something.
Why she thinks she always needs an opportunity to speak I have no idea.
She probably has some mental issue where she thinks she’s actually President.
The New York Post reports,
The president late Wednesday agreed to postpone the speech after Pelosi rescinded her invitation, which she said was issued at a time Democrats thought a spending and border security deal with Trump was close.
She emphasized that the Democrat-controlled House passed spending bills nearly identical to those passed earlier by the Senate.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell withdrew the bills after Trump, who initially had indicated he would support the Senate bills, changed his mind after withering criticism from conservative pundits and lawmakers.
Pelosi said the following in her speech,
“Last night the president accepted the fact that the State of the Union should be at a time when government is not shut down. I’m glad we could get that off the table. It is so unimportant in the lives of the American people in terms of especially those who are victims of the shutdown, hostages to the president’s applause line in a campaign speech.”
“Thank goodness we have put that matter to rest and we can get on to the subject at hand, open up government so we can negotiate how best to protect our borders.”
“We have asked the Republicans to take yes for an answer over and over again and the legislation that we passed this week we have a little more than half a billion dollars for the ports of entry that we have been told by authorities that 90 percent of drugs come through the ports of entry,”
You heard from the [FBI agents] association because of the shutdown that they had no funds to pay for investigation and prosecution of cases including child exploitation, cyber warfare,” she said.
“You have heard from the air traffic controllers, pilots and flight attendants that we have a growing concern for safety and security. We cannot calculate the level of risk currently at play or predict the point at which the system will break.”
We have three-weeks until this collision happens again. Next time, it will be different. The President will make border security happen with or without Congress.
