The tariffs are being paid by consumers (read: Consumers are having their taxes raised). Why didn't you just offer to send him a check instead...?

That’s what we have generals and commanders for ! the money was allocated by congress for a determined purpose - he has no business touching it ... what’s next ? Stick his hand in the social security funds?

So his successor can promptly cancel them in 2021. Sounds productive.

Let me guess- you were a tea partier until Trump?

Just a hunch. Now okay with Congressional funding for the military swiped by the executive branch for unintended purposes. You were once against Obama’s deficit spending now you’re silent about Trump’s.

Pretty sure we know the mold.

Lol.

Securing our borders is one of the top two jobs of the federal government, and the left doesn't even want 1% of our tax revenue spent on it.

We have more than enough money to spend on a border barrier. Cut off all UN funding, and boom, 1/3 of that $5 billion.

I'm very concerned about our spending, which is why I support saving tax money soaked up by illegals.

You might believe you can save a couple hundred dollars a year not changing the oil in your car, but you'll pay a lot more.
