The US economy continues expanding. Such growth was nonexistent throughout the entire eight years of the Oabma admenstruation.

Growth is good!  It means more people get employed; and less become the burden of the taxpayers (aka welfare).  So, since more revenue is rolling in - lets celebrate!  How about we start rolling back our DEFICIT; and start paying down the DEBT?!  Nope. The deficit for 2019 will continue to rise.  Surprised? I'm sure as hell not!

Excerpts from the Heritage Foundation [1]:

> "The CBO projects that, by 2020, the deficit will grow to more than $1 trillion annually, an increase of $233 billion from the latest projection. By 2028, annual deficits could reach more than $1.5 trillion annually, with no sign of slowing down. The 10-year cumulative deficit is projected to be $12.4 trillion, over $2 trillion higher than last year’s CBO estimates."

> "How Washington handles America’s fiscal problems will, indeed, define the future of the United States as a superpower and as a country. If Americans remain unwilling to control the national debt level, Washington will lose its ability to shape the international system —a situation that would ultimately threaten America’s viability as a nation"

The President continues to call for funding for "the wall" to be included in the 2019 spending bill (I refuse io call it a "budget!).  Lets be totally honest here. What good will that "wall" do if states REFUSE to abide by federal laws w/ their sanctuary policies; and where they refuse to incarcerate, and even protect, criminals - because they are illegal aliens?  And what about the FACT that the US continues to take in the so called "refugees" from the Middle East? (45,000 in 2018 so far) 

A growing economy alone IS NEVER ENOUGH!  NO ONE is resolving a damned thing!  So, bottom line is - the nation is still very much in peril.

The Wall, is being built, like it or not.

Trump dumps on NAFTA, a new deal with Mexico, which included Mexico putting in money to build The Wall.

If the Government wants to Balance The Budget,National Debt, Dump The Federal Reserve.

"Budget"? What budget?! Lets be for real. The Fed isn't going anywhere.

Lets address my points, Hank! The OVERspending. And how about the 45,000!

Wait. Let me guess. If it's under Trump's watch - then it's AOK, right?!

 If I was you I would not pick a fight out of Hank, he is more intelligent then he acts. And besides, the Federal Reserve and the Banks connected to it are going somewhere. By the hand of Trump, or by some other means, you do not know all that is taking place.

 And by the way, I did do a check on the National Debit, its much worse then what your pea brain can wrap around.

LOL Tif

(eyeroll)

Behaviorally speaking, quite a few of you here at TPCC are no different than the fanatics on the left.

 If you are so smart,Luis, share the numbers, for the US National Debit.

 Don't show him,Hank, if luis✩USA, is so smart let him figure it out, and those numbers above are not even close...........

What ever Tif, this luis✩USA, write and talks like a girl, but who knows?

(eyeroll) is a girls way, not a man.

BUDGET not in DC vocab

glad it is in ours.  it is up to us the people to vote in or out whom we want.  

the mid terms are coming  and i say do not sit home the Dems surely are not going to

the nation depends on it

the pres and  the country are under attack and we are at war   the economy is doing great and the wall yep coming along.   he cannot do it all CONGRESS has to.  

" the country are under attack and we are at war "

And the Debt fuse continues burning down, Bonnie! But, hey. At least "we" have all 3 branches in our "control", huh. jeez

We have exactly nothing in our control.

You are absolutely right, J9.  And no "one" person can ever change that. But, then again, the Constitution is designed so that no one person could have any authoritarian / dictatorial power. We are a Representative Republic. Many, many, many moving parts.

When last years atrocious spending bill was signed into law by the potus, he said "it's not ganno happen again".  In a few days we'll find out, won't we?  I foresee no changes in the OVERspending at all. There'll be no SocSec reform. The taxpayers $$$$ will be wasted on subsidies that "tea party" used to holler against! The Deficit / Debt will continue soaring. Even if we do gain more seats - we will not be in control. But that comes to no surprise to me.

I see no changes in the plundering of WE the People. 

He could have

vetoed that last atrocity, saying, 

"We will follow the constitution, specifically Article I. We will fund those things. That's it. I promised we would defund pP. And I mean it. Do not ever send me this type of unconstitutional monstrosity again. Congress. Read the Constitution And send me a true budget that defunds unconstitutional agencies and their rules. "

A brief tell off would do the trick.

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
