Yeah, they are all for preventing future Democratic presidents from pulling this crap. But stand up to Trump? Nah.

I am really looking forward to what a future Dem President can do on climate change and public health issues. 

 

Trump can have his dumb border wall by declaring an emergency. The consequences of this precedent and it’s normalization are really quite good for any future Democratic President who will likely always face opposition in the Senate. 

 

Anything that strips power away from the Senate in its current form is ok in my opinion.

What would be your thoughts if they passed it and included approval of Trumps declaration?

If they'd approved the declaration then there wouldn't be a declaration.

I was referring to the Mike Lee bill, sorry I wasn't clear.

Dean Heller 2.0

Tillis switched up to No. These Republicans really scared of a primary for going against Supreme Republican Leader, Donald Trump.

I'm rather refreshed to see how many Republicans have decided that Barack Obama was completely justified in unilaterally reforming the immigration laws for the Dreamers, when Congress failed to give him anything.

More Republicans voted against Trump on this than I expected.  Good for them.  Still shameful to see Tillis, Sasse, and others cower in his shadow.

But not enough to override a veto, so they can say they stood up against him knowing that he'll get his emergency anyway.

My guess is they arranged just enough votes to block. Now, when the vote comes to override the veto hopefully a few more sign on. At least that's my doomed, naïve hope.
