Pence goes after Dems

Vice President Mike Pence said Sunday that Democrats’ rejection of the deal the White House offered this weekend aimed at ending the partial government shutdown was disappointing but hinted there was still room for negotiating.

“There’s a legislative process that is going to begin on Tuesday in the United States Senate,” Pence said on “Fox News Sunday” of President Donald Trump’s offer.

The president proposed extending relief for immigrants with temporary protected status and those brought to the country illegally as children in exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a steel barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, along with money to address other needs at the border.

Trump said Saturday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to put the president’s deal up for a vote this week. Democrats dismissed the offer — despite it containing legislation crafted in part by members of their caucus — demanding that the president reopen the government before they negotiate border security.

Asked why the White House had not taken that route, Pence cited the insistence of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at a meeting weeks ago that she would not provide the president with funding for a border wall even if he agreed to open the government for another 30 days to allow for talks.

“It was disappointing to see Speaker Pelosi reject the offer before the president gave his speech,” Pence said. “The president is offering a solution and what we have from Democrats so far is just soundbites.”

    Sound bites. Something needs to bite nancy. She needs to grow up. No deals with her, they made one months ago and after signed off by the President, she and the democRATS backed out. Trusting her is like trusting a rattlesnake not to bite. I wouldn’t trust her to keep my dog.

    You can’t bring forth an offer as a news break to the citizens unless you sat down and negotiated with the people whom you want to make a deal with. Having negotiations with your own people and bringing back the exact same deals that you erased from existence for 3 years isn’t a deal. How about 5.7 billion in 4 years with you getting 500 million a year with the rest once you adhere to deals that the Democrats make. Exactly, you’re not willing to do it, are you. With your track record of lying and storming off when you don’t get your way is why their not willing to do it until you do right by the Federal and contracted workers with back pay it’s not going to work. I say take away all of congress, house and Senate pay and see how quickly your willing to sit down and negotiate.

      Take another look, Lorraine -that is look at something besides lamestream media propaganda! Personally, I can’t ever remember a time when dimwit commies ever did what they “promised to do” if the President, or conservatives gave them what they demanded first and if you can remember anything like that “ever” happening, by all means- – -list it.

    Take away the House pay and their perks is a good start. I was pleased to learn that the President took away Nancy Pelisses government funded transportation for an unnecessary trip when she need to be here to take care of the peoples business. Isn’t that why she was elected? It appears the only thing the left is good at is spending your money, raising taxes, winning and crying foul. Where is the team work to create a resolution Trump ask for last year when he signed the budget. Didn’t he tell Nancy and Chuck this was to be the last time he would sign a budget without a solution to DACA and immigration issues which need comprehensive shoring up.

    Wasn’t their vacation to Puerto Rico funded by Lobbyists a sufficient get-away from the title work they did this year? Hypocrite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flew in her taxpayer-funded private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and at least 30 House and Senate Democrats have now been seen in Puerto Rico, after they flew in a chartered jet, and were seen partying with bikini-clad women on Puerto Rico beaches and a PR bash with the cast of Hamilton. More than 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress were in attendance. Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border. Nothing to see here.

    The people you want Trump to sit down with and negotiate refuse to “sit down and negotiate.” Trump “stormed” off due to Pelosi’s comment that should would not listen to anything he had to say. Why stay in a room with someone that wont’ talk to you? There are a lot of things we can say about Trump, but this one isn’t his fault. He’s offered to negotiate for weeks while Pelosi was nowhere to be found.
    And I do agree with one thing, take away all of Congress pay until they come to a settlement.

    Sound good to me. It is pitiful that 800000 federal employees have to go through this . America is at is worst right now. The president should never let those knuckle head conservative talk show hosts changed his mind. He is the world leader.not a ounk. They punked him. It is sad

    The big picture is the 100 billion per year it cost to resolve immigration/border issues. By mending our “fence” we will recover at least 1/4 of that sum. It is a foolish waste of money year after year.

    Lorraine Turner, in the first place PRESIDENT TRUMP did not storm out. That is a complete lie. There were more than the LYING Pelosi and Chuck Schumer present at that meeting. In the second place, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are the ones who shows no respect or care for the workers. Going on vacation to Hawaii in order to celebrate the shutdown certainly seemed to be spitting in those workers’ faces. Then 80 DEMOCRATS and their lobbyists go to Puerto Rico to do more celebrating. Pelosi and Chuck Schumer don’t care about the workers. They refuse to listen to FACTS from Homeland Security, to visit the Border themselves, to talk to the families of victims of illegal CRIMINALS, and refuse to negotiate. They are nothing but hate-filled, vengeful, old biddies who need to be put away in a pasture. Neither Pelosi or CHUCK SCHUMER have any leadership qualities or they would listen to Facts and the victims families. They are nothing but cold, black hearted, hate-filled, power hungry morons.

    Congress has promised to allocate moneys for the wall since Regan was in office. The democratic leadership have all at one time or another said a wall was necessary and were willing to fund it to the tune of 25 billion. However it never seems to happen and people continue to flood across our borders. President Trump ran on securing a wall. The democrats know this was one of his significant promises and it would seem they are doing everything possible to keep that from happening. When 2020 comes around and the wall has not been funded the democrats will use that as Trump did not keep his promise. They did this sort of thing with both Bush presidency’s. Furthermore it would seem they care more about illegal aliens than their own constituents and the health and well being of America in general for purely partisan politics. Trump has once again offered a deal, they will not Evan come to the table. They want the govt opened back up and then talk a deal knowing full well they will delay any negotiations for as long as possible, hopefully until 2020 so they may use it against him. President Trump is not a fool.

    It seems to me that Trump is the one who doesn’t care about the workers or anyone but himself and a precious.wall that is ineffective and too expensive. Why isn’t he going after Mexico to get theoney? That was the promise after all.. Common sense is clear, a wall is anwaste of American funds. The money is best to be spread across the country to aide all illegal immigrants from around the world. Anyone who thinks a southern wall is gonna end all our immigration and terrorist problems needs an awakening. It’s not, resources are needed on soany levels. If it’s all spent in one place, then we are still left w/a big hole and more problems than before.. It’s so simple, I really don’t understand how logic isn’t leading this and why there is any argument in the first place. If Mexico doesn’t pay for the wall then don’t build it. If they do, then great.. Let them build it.. Why is it so hard, it has nothing to do with what’s truly going on. I believe this is a deflection from something else, like the Russian probe inching ever so closely..

    Both democrat leaders are known to be FOR a wall but have contracted apparent amnesia they previously offered five times what Trump is now wanting. There in a nutshell lies the problem (now Trump wants it) how they show there faces now says volumes about their integrity

    President Trump is absolutely right to want the wall to protect the American people. If he dosent who will no one. We should be very thankful to have a commander and chief that cares that much for us. Unlike the Democrats that only care about themselves. Nancy has made that very clear. If not she wouldn’t have went on vacation when the government shut down. Our President was in the White House even through the holidays. Weak up Dimercrats and do your job, Earn your pay. Stop the hate for your President like it or not he is all of our President. Also Nancy you wanted to take a long trip again not just you and other Senators but also family and friends on Americans tax dollars. What’s up with that. It’s BS that you were taking them to a war zone to thank the front line soldiers. How stupid do you think we are. Not half as stupid as you and your side kick is.We suppose to love everyone. Stop the hate for our President and the American people.He won the election fair and square get over yourselfs. Do the right thing for once the money he is asking for is only a drop in the bucket compared to what you Democrats approved for Oboma and other Presidents. So that tells the American people it’s only because it’s Donald Trump a Republican President. Wake up America. One eye and half sense can figure this out. He will win in 2020. You can’t stop that. So don’t try to sabotage the election it won’t work you will get caught and hopefully punished.
