It should be the goal of every Republican and every conservative to reduce government spending, increase border security, and eliminate woke from government policies. This bill does it all. If the Senate, led by Democrats, doesn’t agree with the provisions in this bill, it will prove they’re out of touch and infatuated with woke, government spending to understand what’s best for the country.
First, a major faction of the GOP held vital Pentagon funding hostage in an attempt to get more spending cuts to unrelated programs. Now they’re using a government shutdown as a threat, and their only stopgap solution reinstates Trump-era border restrictions, makes steep cuts, and ignores the president’s request for Ukraine aid. This is a bad-faith tactic by extreme conservatives to avoid blame for a shutdown if it occurs.
There’s a 50% chance that there will be a US government shutdown before Jan. 1, 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
