Trump and the GOP House Freedom Caucus gave us a huge Christmas present last night. The U.S. House voted to provide $5.7 billion for Wall spending in the continuing resolution that will fund the government into February. It passed 217-185 and members of Congress said they had never been so energized.
Now it moves to the senate. It will not get the 60 votes needed to pass. Trump may be able to peel off one or possibly two Democrats but even that is a long shot.
Senate Majority Leader McConnell needs to invoke the nuclear option, i.e. change the rules to simple majority. Then they will only need 51 votes.
We need to absolutely slam the Senate from every direction possible with demands for the nuclear option. GO NUCLEAR!
WE NEED THE WALL! GO NUCLEAR!
THIS LINK provides the Twitter accounts for all Senators. If you have a Twitter account, barrage them with tweets. Use the hashtags: #GoNuclear, #BUILDTHEWALL! Also tweet your support of the President to Sarah Sanders @PressSec and to Trump himself @realdonaldtrump.
If you need any further ammunition, my article at Epoch Times should help: Congressional Inaction on Border Protection is Killing Americans.
Call the Senate switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask for your senator. Tell them to BUILD THE WALL! Support the CR with the full House Wall funding!
Also call the White House 202-456-1111. Thank President Trump for standing up and support
calls for the nuclear option.
Also, for a morale booster, DHS made this big announcement yesterday: Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen Announces Historic Action to Confront Illegal Immigration.
Wall funding would be the greatest Christmas present we could get — a massive win at a time when the Left is coming out of the woodwork to defeat the Trump agenda at every turn.
It was our efforts on social media that took the House over the top and with any luck we can do the same in the Senate.
Let’s help make it happen! I have already started tweeting, pretty much constantly since last night.
