Trump Pressures Congress With New Rule

Democrats are misbehaving – so Donald just dropped the Washington hammer on all of them.

Democrats have been playing dirty. Pelosi uninvited Trump from his own State of the Union, and they rejected Trump’s fair deal before America even heard it from Trump’s mouth.

They think they can get away with anything. But Trump is giving them a taste of their own medicine.

From USA Today:

The new policy, announced in a memo to department heads, was put in place one day after Trump canceled a military plane for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was planning to lead a congressional delegation to Afghanistan this weekend.

“Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased or chartered aircraft support any Congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff,” wrote Russell Vought, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“Nor will any funds appropriated to the Executive Branch be used for any Congressional delegation travel expenses, without his express written approval,” Vought’s memo said.

Just days ago, President Trump pulled the rug out from Nancy Pelosi just minutes before her military plane was scheduled to leave for a week-long trip during the shutdown.

But now, Donald is letting know this isn’t a personal feud with Pelosi. This is about the entire Democrat party sitting on the sidelines, refusing to try to make a deal.

They will not be allowed to fly anywhere on military planes until the shutdown is over. This is what they get for partying in the Carribean while Trump tries to work to end the shutdown.

Already bills are in the works to take away pay for Congress, and even force them to stay in the Washington swamp until the shutdown ends.

    It’s about time that the Congressional personal also feels the tight strings of a government shutdown which happens every time a budget isn’t passed. It’s the reason that Congressional personal want to get re-elected, it’s a cushy job and they always get paid no matter what, they vote each year to give themselves a raise and increase the pension benefits.

    Extend that to 365 days a year. They have played the tax payers for sucker too long. If a military member is on a plane going home and a politician wants a seat the military member is bumped off. At their salary and perks they can afford a cheap commercial plane seat.

      Don’t forget one thing…Pelosi was one of the Democraps to push and get ObamaCare passed. After it into law, she said “That’s not fair” when she found out that Congress HAD to be covered by their new healthcare. So what did they do? They made a law which exempted them from their “prize” healthcare (ABA/ObamaCare). The MSM never reported about that trick that Pelosi pulled.

      I would vote for that in a heartbeat. The same retirement and medical plans for congress that they have fostered on the majority of taxpayer. This gives a new meaning to the phrase “Medicare for all”.
      Bet those in Congress would add “For thee but not for me”.

      That was the Obama plan, to force everyone into Medicare (Social Security is separate because it’s for RETIREMENT, NOT medical care. Obama wanted to squeeze the two together, but his first step — Obamacare — couldn’t DO it. That idea would put 300 million people on a medical care program intended for FIFTY million, and IT CAN’T BE DONE The whole THING would COLLAPSE in SIX MONTHS!
      So in YOUR version of Obamacare (the original. btw, was REJECTED by the American people, not by Congress!): What do you want to do about Senators or Congress-members who aren’t eligible yet for either Medicare OR Social Security (because they’re in their 20s, 30s, 40s. 50s or early 60s)?
      In addition, ALL citizens DO NOT use Medicare OR Social Security, either because they’re under age for either or both or because their employers provide insurance that’s better than either one!

      Before Obama took a PICKAX to our PRIVATE insurance system, more than HALF the working American public HAD insurance, GOOD insurance, through their employers. We could have tweaked those policies to reduce costs and make them portable across state lines, and tightened the requirements that all policies cover preexisting conditions. But NO, Barack Obama (who was every bit as much of a socialist as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: SHE just doesn’t KNOW it) wanted to TEAR DOWN THE SYSTEM, and he came damn close to doing it!

        Obamacare Architect: Yeah, We Lied to The “Stupid” American People to Get It Passed

        Meet Jonathan Gruber, a professor at MIT and an architect of Obamacare. During a panel event last year about how the legislation passed, turning over a sixth of the U.S. economy to the government, Gruber admitted that the Obama administration went through “tortuous” measures to keep the facts about the legislation from the American people, including covering up the redistribution of wealth from the healthy to the sick in the legislation that Obamacare is in fact a tax. The video of his comments just recently surfaced ahead of the second open enrollment period for Obamacare at
        “You can’t do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies. Okay? So it’s written to do that,” Gruber said. “In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in, you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical to get for the thing to pass. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

        A few points. 1. Notice how lying to the American people is completely justified by Obama administration standards so long as the ends justify the means. Gruber would “rather have this law than not,” and therefore purposely lying about what the law actually is in order to get it passed is completely acceptable. regardless of the negative effects it has on the lives of Americans. 2. Lack of transparency might be a huge political advantage in the short term, but long term there are consequences from voters, which is exactly what we saw last week during the Democrat blood bath at every level of government across the country. 3. Insulting Americans as stupid and deceiving them is a really good way to lose your power on Capitol Hill, which is again exactly what we saw last week in the 2014 midterms. Twenty-eight Senators who voted for Obamacare are now out of the Senate for one reason or another. 4. Obamacare in its entirely was “sold” on lies. From the promise to keep your doctor to claims insurance rates would go down, not up — to hiding that the legislation was in fact a tax until of course it was necessary to argue it was a tax to save the legislation at the Supreme Court. Government bureaucrats promising an expansion of care knowing care under Obamacare would be limited, etc. Hell, even the official name for Obamacare, “The Affordable Care Act,” is a lie. Obamacare isn’t affordable. 5. The process through which Obamacare was shoved through and down the throats of the American people happened as a result of Harry Reid changing Senate rules and without the support of voters. The legislation didn’t receive a single Republican vote in the House or the Senate. Also, remember this?

        Or this?
        “Absolutely not a tax increase.”

        Obamacare is a sham and the American people have been lied to and deceived every step of the way. Further, Obamacare has never been popular with the American people. Not when it passed and not now. It should also be noted that since before Obamacare was passed conservatives have been rightly screaming about its true contents and impact on American families and the economy. They’ve been right all along and were called racists for sounding the alarm.

        Overall, a lack of transparency has been key to the Obama administration’s existence on a whole range of topics, which is why it is one of the least transparent administrations in history despite President Obama’s promises.

If they would spend their time doing what they were sent to Washington for, instead of whining and crying like a bunch of children, and just get behind our President, just think of what could have been accomplished over the past two years, on top of what President Trump accomplished in spite of them. And they would have gained the respect of the American people, instead of the scorn they have heaped on themselves.

      they should also pay for their own security, retirement, and hold them to $40 a day per diem, tax payers should not pay for any alcohol either. They make too much money to receive Social Security, besides they decided to provide SS $ to people that never put a dime into the program, then they call it an “entitlement”, it’s entitlement for those who’s getting it free, not for us who did not have a choice but to have $ taken out of our paychecks to “contribute” to the governments program.

    7 elected Democrats and 86 ‘family members’ were on the Air Force charter bus, headed to the airport for a posh 1st class vacation to Brussels and Egypt, with a brief side trip to Afghanistan for the troop meet and greet for our elected Democrats. The amount of 1st class amenities on the Air Force jet would put a serious dent in anyone’s budget (unless you are a jet-setting millionaire or an elected Democrat).

    All travel should be paid by the individual making the trip. Upon your return, turn in an expense report for reimbursement if your actually on government business. All family members should pay their on way. It’s time to pay for something yourself instead of living off the taxpayers. No liquor should be paid for by taxpayers.

    What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. When they say that Donald Trump dropped the hammer on the Democrats they weren’t kidding. For too long, the Democrats, especially Mr. & Mrs. Clinton were living “high on the hog” thanks in part to the Double Standard in political circles. Pelosi tells President Trump to cancel his SOTU address because of political concerns. President Trump cancels Pelosi’s trip to Afganistan one hour before she was scheduled to leave town. While Trump stayed in the White House trying to create a compromise that the Democrats would accept, the Democrats were partying in Puerto Rico instead of working with President Trump to end the government shutdown. What gives? Trump is trying to get a wall built for the safety and security of the American People and the Democrats veto his deal even before he started his speech to the American People. President Trump, on 3 occasions, brought 3 compromises to the table. The Democrats shut down the potential deals. On this occasion, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her party are the ones keeping the govenment closed.

    ANI4ANI, I like the way you think. Congress should be on the same retirement and medical plans as all American citizens. Why should they have a separate insurance plan and retirement plan than we, the working individual who work 40 hours a week, five days a week, unlike Congress. We pay our taxes, and have to suffer with Congress threatening to cut Medicare and privatize our Social Security. I remember during the President George Bush, the son, he wanted to privatize our Social Security and include it the Stock Market. Can you image what a mess that would have been? They need to leave our money alone and do their jobs especially the Democrats and some of the Republicans.

Remember, these are the people that clean, scrub, get on there knees to do what the WHITE MAN refuses to do. Cut off social security and unemployment benefits and put them to do the dirty work. I bet they refuse. A Proud Mexican American.

    This has been rather disgusting to watch and listen to. This time Democratic Congressional people have proven they are not in Washington to work for the people and their actions prove it! If either of the party’s are going to hold government shut downs their pay/benefits needs to be stopped. Fines need to be assessed on each party for failure to work for the people of the country. If they can not produce a budget that isnt full of crap at the appropriate time and with the people of this country in mind, they need to be fired! They have continue to proven they are non essential by not accomplishing a thing. Unfortunately there are many other federal entities forced to work without pay through their temper tantrums and disagreements which is disgusting and disheartening to see.

We are well into this new term and not one piece of important legislation that benefits the nation at large has been passed because of the Democrats who are scared to death of Pelosi and George Soros. Shame, shame, shame on these maggots who are sucking the life blood out of wonderful nation.

    It’s about time take their pay away they don’t deserve as much as they get paid anyways they should all get minimum wage especially if taxpayers have to foot the bill. That takes food off my family’s table and I for one don’t like it. Trump needs to get all of these communists out of congress all together they are worthless

    It’s time the Dems (and Republicans, too) get to work on ending this stalemate. Government worker bees and citizens alike suffer while Pelosi and her crew of child-minded Democrats play hard-ball with the President of the United States. Trump WON the election and one of his promises was to build a wall to prevent illegal aliens (not undocumented workers) from crossing into this country without going through the process like any other want-to-be Americans have to do from European, Asian and other countries, not on our southern border. The People elected President Trump to do what he promised during his campaign and a wall was one of his campaign promises. Let him do it!

    They should immediately stop funding the members of Congress and Senate and their staffs and all related office, travel and any other expenses that they incurr untl after the wall issue is settled. They should immediately start funding all of the federal workers and agencies that are essential to the running of the government and the country.

    Pelosi has used our tax dollars to fly back and forth to her California home…She always has family or friends on board. I think at this time she has used our military as her personal transporter and flaunts it and she has incurred over $200, debt to the tax payer…..She is a Diva who has been treated as the Queen of Big Mouths….
    She flaunts her Catholic Religion as her faith and shelter…..Basically she is a phony and the Pope knows she supports abortion and he should excommunicate her but…..Again…She is without sin….In truth, I resent the woman because if I supported abortion, I would have been excommunicated..

    These people are the reason we have 20+ million illegals in the USA right now. We don’t know who they are or what they’re doing. These are ALL types of people and you can bet they’re not all hard working people here to send money home to their families as the democrats will have you believe. Trump needs to stop this in it’s tracks right now. Pelosi and her group wouldn’t even be in country to work on negotiations if Trump hadn’t stopped them from leaving. The 800,000 federal workers are the bottom of the barrel workers who do nothing and get paid for it. Trump should review their jobs and lay them off if need be. The people here illegally are bankrupting our healthcare and our economy paying for them. The democrats try to make it sound like Trump is wrong but he’s right as usual.

    It’s one thing that the Democrats wanted to use the Military Aircraft for their Trips when doing Business for the Government, But it wasn’t just the Members of Congress Attending these Trips . The Democrats also want to take their Immediate Family Members with them ALL ON THE TAX PAYERS DIME, I think the Military Planes should NOT include their Family Members. Why should Us Tax Payer foot the Bill for ALL of these people especially since the majority would be NON POLITICAL Individuals attending this Trip. Why should the family member of Congress get a free Vacation on the Tax Payers hard earned cash. Thank You Mr President for Blocking their European Vacation Like President Trump said If you wanna still go you are more then Welcome to take a Commercial Flight! They NEED to create a LAW which EXCLUDES FAMILY MEMBER from Accompanying Members of the House or Senate unless they Pay Fair Price for each seat Occupying a Civilian! Just my Opinion!

    My husband and I ( we are seniors) have believed that any government shutdown and should be putting Congress on No pay shutdown. Why is it the Voters who work for Government that get the dirty deal and punishments for Congress not doing the jobs? They have too many recesses and vacations and work less than 200 days a year and not doing the job they were VOTED for. They need term limits and then they would take their responsibilities seriously. We support the families and workers that are forced to be laid off or work without a paycheck Ask when all Congress went without a paycheck. If workers do not do their jobs and take lots of time off, would the government pay them like they do Congress? Put this on next year National Ballot to be Voted on. Thank you, Kiliwia

    Establish a 12 term limit for a federal elected office and include a 6 year moratorium to work as a lobbyst for a foreign government or company after leaving office. No retirement or except social security. Few in congress enter congress as millionaires but most leave as millionaires due advanced knowledge of government contracts and take advantage of this information.

    It is about time Congress abides by the rules and laws they have created for We The People to follow:
    1. Work every day for 8 hours (1 hr. for lunch)
    2. Use the same Health Care System as every other American
    3. Have limited time off (vacation)
    4. Be the FIRST TO FORGO their pay when they shut down the government
    5. Contribute to Social Security and receive SS instead of salaries upon retirement. The founding fathers didn’t get a dime when they left Congress — they returned to their former lives without compensation. What makes them think they are better than the men who made us a free nation??????
    6. Don’t forget Term Limits.

    I don’t believe any government official should get paid during a federal shutdown.. Regular federal employees aren’t getting paid. Those who are essential are forced to work w/ out pay so why should anyone in the Senate, Congress, house of representatives, or any other government office get paid. They should be forced to work like the military, ATC, FTA, etc.. Why should Congress or the Senate be treated any differently. After all, they too are government employees, right? It’s not gonna effect them anyway cause they are loaded bit will help w/the self esteem of those who are unable to pay their bills knowing that no one in the white House or in the government are getting paid either.. So there is 1 thing I can agree w/ Trump on, but only 1..

One future suggestion; All congress should be on term limets of six months a year and six months a year non-government employment, and not aloud to raise their own salary. Keep cleaning up the durty swamp, God is with you. Save our unborn children.. Don’t change, Your doing fine as you are. Melania is a great First Lady and a smart,beautiful one at that. She is doing great also. Thank You both and also your family, God Bless You and protect all of you and your presidential cabiinet.

    There should also be a rule that when and elected official takes the sacred Oath of Office and must use the Bible to be sworn in on and then they must sign the Oath of Office they took and understand that if the do not uphold and defend the Constitution and its Bill of Rights they must step down and then to be replaced either by their States Governor or special election. The Oath of Office is a pledge a commitment to the US Citizens not LIP SERVICE. We need to make these elected officials accountable for what they do and say. I doubt that 70% if that could pass a US History test let alone know the Constitution and why and how our forefather wrote it. The Federalist Papers pretty much explain what and why each ammendment was written. I truly doubt that 65% of Congress has even read one Federalist paper. The Federalist Papers were a series of eighty-five articles/essays urging the citizens of New York to ratify the new United States Constitution. Written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, the essays originally appeared anonymously in New York newspapers in 1787 and 1788 under the pen name “Publius.”
    Probably should demand that all elected officials be schooled on US History, the Constitution and Federalist papers and then giving a test which must be past before serving in our US Congress.
    Reason for a rule on taking the Oath of Office is most all that take it LIE all it is to them is LIP SERVICE and we need to demand accountability of that Sacred Oath of Office. Every elected official should have to take it at the beginning of every Congress to take place and must sign it fiully understanding what takes place if they fial to uphold it. Actually anyone running for office should have to take a preliminary Oath of Office and understand the consequences if they liied. Also to not waist the people and States time and money.

    No one should be allowed to use military aircraft but military during a shutdown. And never be allowed to have family ,alcohol, or more than 1 bag that fits in the bin and one carry on that fits in the bin. Most of congress can pay for their own transportation .
    Congress should not be allowed to leave till shutdown is over. Congress should not be paid during shutdown,as it is they dont deserve a salary as they dont work 98 per cent of the time. The other one percent is devoted to.lining their own pockets, the last one.percent is to see what nonsensical ideas they can spend the taxpayers money on.
    Congress should be forced to have healthcare just like all other Americans and retirement too. Most of these people.have more money than the average person let them pay for their own health care and retirement.

    Two things could happen to end the shutdown in a matter of hours. First, suspend all Social Security payments. The repercussions would be enormous and I am pretty sure the Democrats would take the heat not President Trump. Second, suspend all welfare,food stamp, housing subsidies, etc. Results would be massive demonstrations on Capital Hill, therefore,, end of shutdown, and more than likely any future shutdowns. Oh, by-the-way I receive Social Security.

This is his plan…stir up anger so we bicker about nonsense despite the fact that we all want and need the same basic things to survive…we have a right to healthcare & higher education. These are not privileges in other developed nations and also the reason we are behind in innovation. Innovation comes from hope and optimism and not fear and anger. Every insult in these threads contributes to the swamp. Get informed and vote on the issues rather than emotions that get us nowhere.

We, then, would vote for those from our own states, not for someone who has no primary interest in our well-being, like Romney who cannot be trusted by anyone in any state in which he lives, Ocasio-Cortez who is a New Yorker but has her own economically dangerous plans for the rich to share with the poor at a high tax rate, Hillary Clinton who used our state as a stepping-stone residence for senator, etc.
