    I personally think it is time to end term limits for The Presidency, and place them on The Senate and House.

    Senate votes to block Trump’s border emergency declaration, in bipartisan rebuke teeing up veto


    Senate Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues on Thursday in voting to block President Trump’s border emergency declaration -- a move that will prompt the president's first-ever veto.

    “I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”

    “This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.

    The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Roger Wicker, R-Miss.; Roy Blunt, R-Mo.; Jerry Moran, R-Kan.; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

    The E-Dec is bullshit. I don't care how worthy the cause.

    A legitimate and enjoyable veto is on the horizon. Americans are celebrating a president who tells the rest of the government, especially the opposition who NEVER vote for anything pro-America, "America is back, this is why I was elected".

    Very well said....This is awesome actually, it exposes the piece of shits in the Senate that are scared shitless to tackle the immigration issue...The nutless fucks much prefer to continue kicking the can down the road and operating under status quo. Trumps says...FUCK THAT, and so do all good, real Americans.
