Urge Congress to keep President Trump's promise and build the wall now!

Make a promise, keep a promise.

President Donald Trump ran on building the southern border wall, and the Republican Congress needs to fund it in the spending bill due in December.

On Jan. 27, 2017, House Speaker Paul Ryan told the American people that, "This is something, [the wall], we want to get on right away. And so we do believe this is urgent. We believe this is one of the most important promises the President made running for office. It's a promise he's going to keep and it's a promise we're going to help him keep."

Ryan added, “We anticipate a supplemental coming from the administration on defense and the border” and “I’m hoping in the first quarter we can get this done. But again, it’s getting [Mick Mulvaney confirmed as Office of Management and Budget Director and] up and running so they can send us the supplemental.”

Mulvaney was confirmed on Feb. 16 and the supplemental request was proposed on March 14 by Mulvaney and then formally put in on March 16 by President Trump to Speaker Ryan. Trump kept his side of the bargain. But somehow, by March 30, Ryan had changed his tune, telling CBS News, “The big chunk of money for the wall really is… next fiscal year’s appropriations because they literally can’t start construction even this quickly.”

Now, Ryan is signaling that the wall will not be funded in the September spending bill by calling a government shutdown “not necessary” when in fact it may be the only way to get the wall built. He and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promises $12 billion to $15 billion for the wall in January. Now we'll be lucky to get the $1 billion supplemental that was already supposed to pass in April.

Speaking with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Sept. 5, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) took funding for the southern border wall off the table for September, saying that "We've got a lot of busy things happening here. We have to deal with Harvey, we have the debt ceiling, we have a continuing resolution, which will be just about a three-month continuing resolution. So, you will deal with the wall a little later in the year.”

Ryan already moved the goal posts twice, and we can't let him do it again. He is locked in to provide the funding for the wall next year in the September continuing resolution. Now it's locked in for December. But Congress is rapidly losing credibility on implementing any parts of the Trump agenda that won the election in 2016. Congress has to keep its word and build the wall!

You know what to do! Let’s urge Congress to build the southern border wall just like they promised.

The GOP Congress needs to keep Trump’s promise on the wall, for failure would be a politically devastating betrayal of the voters that who elected both President Trump and the GOP majorities in the House and Senate.

Whatever it takes, the GOP Congress must get that wall built. And they should get it done now!

The people elected President Trump because he made promises that the people saw as they are choices. To build a wall, to strengthen our economy, to abolish political correctness and return morality to this nation. I am one of those people. You were my representative. Forget your own wishes and listen to the voice of the people. That was what you were elected to do .

If MY President shuts down the government, it will be the House and Senate who pay for it. 2018 is going to be a bloodbath for RINOs and leftist Democrats. We elected President Trump for a reason and we are tired of being lied to by the corrupt scumbags in Congress who have done everything possible to obstruct our DULY ELECTED President and everyone I know is waiting for the midterms to send a message to Congress: support President Trump or you are going home in 2018. President Trump will be re-elected in 2020--so get on the Trump train because the DC gravy train has left the station. We have had ENOUGH!!

Trump was elected because Americans are fed up with corruption and dysfunction in Washington, DC. Democrats and Republicans alike should heed a clarion call for change. At issue is not Donald Trump's fitness for office. At issue is the fitness for office of every Democrat and Republican in Washington. The changes that are needed transcend partisan bickering. Stop sniping at one another. Start legislating on the basis of consensus. Restore Constitutional priorities to federal governance. Restore restraint and common decency to federal governance. It is high time that the "lifers" in Washington be sent home to live without the power of high office in a nation they have sorely wounded. The American people cried out for change when they elected Donald Trump. Listen and learn.

To the totalitarians (aka Democratic Party Komrades) that unfortunately represent me, if you are not in favor of protecting the United States by your oath of office, then you must be an enemy of the United States. Walls work. I'd bet you have one at your home.

Build the wall now. Protect the young Americans trying to find entry level jobs. These jobs are increasingly taken by illegal immigrants who will work for less money in cash. DO YOUR JOB TO PROTECT THE COUNTRY!

Speaker Ryan and Leader McConnell should stop playing games. They must fulfill their policy commitments to GOP voters by building the southern border Wall, repealing the ACA, and reforming the federal tax code. Otherwise, the GOP will likely face significant losses in both 2018 and 2020. I support repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment and the abolition of the federal income tax entirely. The people hurt most by the IRS are middle-income wage earners. It's time to get the IRS off the back of the American middle class. Establish instead a consumption tax. The rich buy a lot of stuff; their shopping sprees should be subject to federal taxation.

Stop holding up our, your President on his promises to make America Great again. If you hate what our founding fathers did then leave the United States. We what limited government you get put in office by the people so Work for the People and stop being an anchor to our president. You would of never have done your childish acts when Obama was in office in fact you kissed his button and gave him everything he wanted, what was that all about huh? Do your job and come along side Trump, or leave your office.
