Senate Democrats gather Enough Republican Support to Block Trump’s National Emergency

Once again, RINOs may snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

And Rand Paul is front and center. Along with Paul, the usual Republican crossover voters are Susan Collins, Thom Tillis, and Lisa Murkowksi.

“I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress……….We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.”

Rand Paul, KY

“If it’s a ‘clean’ disapproval resolution, I will support it,” 

Susan Collins, ME

“Conservatives should take these warnings seriously……….They should be thinking about whether they would accept the prospect of a President Bernie Sanders declaring a national emergency to implement parts of the radical Green New Deal; a President Elizabeth Warren declaring a national emergency to shut down banks and take over the nation’s financial institutions; or a President Cory Booker declaring a national emergency to restrict Second Amendment rights.”

Thom Tillis, NC

“I want to make sure that the resolution of disapproval is exactly what I think it is, because if it is as I understand it to be, I will likely be supporting the resolution to disapprove of the action.”

Lisa Murkowski, AK
