NC Congressman Mark Walker Calls on Congress to FUND THE WALL!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The stop-gap spending measure Republican congressional leadership crafted to avoid a – GASP – partial government shut down inexplicably left out any funds to secure the border via a border wall. At the same time, the bill would have sent billions of dollars to Mexico and Central America.

The tortured reasoning of those Establishment leaders was that they’d need more time to gather support for wall funding, as if they haven’t had two full years to pass a central Republican campaign promise. However, the bill would have taken us into the New Year and a new congress – one with a Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. It is truly stupid.

President Donald Trump, though, announced Thursday that he would not sign that spending bill. And now Rep. Mark Walker from North Carolina, the chamber’s largest Republican caucus, the Republican Study Committee, is backing up that up with calls for the House to pass a bill allocating $5 billion for funding the southern border wall.

With a shut down on the horizon, a fire has been lit under the seats of congressional Republicans to, for once, follow through on one of the issues that put them in power in the first place.

What do you think? Pass a spending bill that essentially hands the keys to Nancy Pelosi early? Or, put our foot down and risk a government shut down in order to start building the wall?
