Trump took money from the budget that was voted on by Congress to build hospitals and reallocated it for his wall. Trump will NOT let his wall go unbuilt, PERIOD

Wait......are you claiming that Trump is fanatic about American sovereignty???????

What sort of President is this??????

Oh....I see.....not Democrat.

Except for VA and military hospitals, there are no federal hospitals in the US.
My mistake, Trump robbed the VA & military funds to build his wall.
Thanks for the correction :)-
Most military and VA hospitals were built in the 1970s and 80s, when the US military was more than twice its current size.

Why on earth would we be building more VA and military hospitals?

Never should have allocated money to the wall in the first place.

We have more important uses for our money during an economic collapse

Half what we use to control the rest of the world militarily for this would still leave us in militarist control of the world. But capital, not the people decides.

Because our recent wars have produced more veterans in the need of VA services than ever before.
Whoever questions the needs for more VA hospitals has not paid attention to the needs of our vetrans who we owe so much.
What a selfish piece of manure.

YES,..,.,. !! and then we could save billions more if we stop this handout toooo :)-

$38 billion U.S. Aid Package to Israel

Starting in 2019, the U.S. will give Israel $38 billion over the next 10 years – $3.8 billion per year, which is $10.41 million per day.

This is in line with previous years. In 2017, the U.S. gave Israel $3.7 billion – about $10.14 million per day. In other words, the new aid package amounts to an increase of around $27 million per year.

Israel has long received more U.S. money than any other country. Some earlier disbursements were even larger when considered in today’s dollars.


This aid to Israel amounts to more than half of all direct military aid the United States provides worldwide.

Israel is not America's 51st state, and never will be

Why is this even a topic when the speaker of the house is talking about giving 35 million to the jfk center, bailing out the USPS, money to PBS, and bailing out every student debt to the tune of 30,000? Obviously that shit doesn’t take precedence, and she’s talking about taking it out of the relief fund. This is a perfectly approachable topic, but wtf not talk about that shit first?

This shows why the wall is needed...the next time it could be even more deadly and originates in South America that causes a panicked run at our southern border...this shows we need to get the wall done and fast....

For money earmarked by congress, NO. For money stolen from the military by trump, still NO.
