    American National Security Act

    Mr. Speaker, similar legislation was already proposed to this house on the first docket. The spend and time frame are similar. The declaration to construct a physical barrier are identical. We have answered this question. What we have is Republican Congressmen more beholden to their party than to their constituents. The Republican from Texas should show why this section is different than the construction language that was removed by Democrats and some 60 Republicans. If he can show a fundamental difference between construction of a physical barrier and construction of a physical barrier, I’d love to hear it. Now the gentleman from Virginia will tell us the President promised Americans a wall and he should have one. But to be blunt Mr. Speaker, I won’t give a wall and I don’t give a dam. The letters from my constituents also show, many don’t either. If he is concerned about his promises, maybe he shouldn’t promise asinine things. This bill is improper. We have addressed this. It is not fundamentally different. I move to table this bill. I yield.

    American National Security Act

    Point of order. OOC: this bill is an almost identical copy of the construction clause of the previous bill. The funding is off, but I’m assuming this was made in haste. 60 republicans voted against such a clause, but now that O’Dweyer has in effect stopped playing, the GOP is attempting to reinsert this because now it wouldn’t be blocked. However, IG, it would not make sense for those 60 republicans to have a sudden change of mind. This is poor gamesmanship, it’s petty, and there should either be SERIOUS IG consequences or this bill should either be scrapped or receive the same votes as the Amendment. @Richard

    Meanwhile there’s a sex trafficking bill on this side of the house that the Speaker will probably ignore. Let’s see if he believes there’s things more important than protecting women

    “Calvin, what do you do in Congress all day?” Wait for the Speaker to release a new docket, full of bills that he wrote. Cause he’s arrogant and doesn’t believe there’s good ideas on this side of the House

    It's Not Worth It

    Calvin Ward From the office of HmL Calvin Ward of Arkansas "What the Congressional Budget Office has shown us over the last few months is that the Republicans are willing to increase the deficit astronomically, but they're alien dreams of massive economic stimulus are proven to be false. GDP would grow less than a tenth of a percent with their proposed changes, while adding hundreds of billions of dollars to the deficit. They need to get their head out of the trickle down clouds, come back to reality and work with us to make better decisions. Because this is their next steps. They're going to cut tax revenues, then they're going to cut services, social programs the poor and the elderly depend on. They'll cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid all while looking at Democrats as the tax and spend party. We spend to help common people, we tax in order to do that. Taxes pay for schools and roads. They pay our servicemen and servicewomen. I'd like to see our taxes fund infrastructure projects, but the Speaker is just arrogant enough to believe that only Republicans have good ideas. We have an infrastructure bill that I am more than willing to make concessions on, if the Republicans will come to the table I'd be more than happy to see what can be worked out. But they won't. They don't have the strength of spine to admit they're never wrong. They don't have the courage to admit that good ideas come from both sides of the aisle. There's a bill addressing sex trafficking already submitted. But the Speaker made sure that a majority of his own bills were submitted. I challenge him, right now, to man up and put this important piece of legislation on the Docket and bring it to a vote. View full PR

    Because qualification isn’t given. It’s the Macmillan Adminstrations job to show that he IS qualified. Good try though
  13. Calvin Ward “I know the VP like to believe he’s calling shots, but he needs to be aware that he’s not getting a physical wall. We in the Biuse have decided that. I know they made some big promises to the American people, but they lost this one. He needs to stick to the handshakes and state dinners while the people’s representatives govern” View full PR

  15. Calvin Ward “What Swanner wants to do is kick the ball and wait til folks are already in bankruptcy before we start helping. We’re giving chemo to the person with stage 4 lung cancer instead of pulling the cigarettes out their mouth in their 2nd pack of the day. I’d rather see us reform student loans, move to a expanded Pell Grant system. If we have every student four years of public univeristy or community college we would save each tax payer hundreds each year. Of course there would need to be standards of achievement met for those to continue. We’re not giving money to those who can’t make the grades. But as requirements for jobs grow, we must meet the rising tide. We should be meeting needs before folks are in over their heads; prevention not cure is the difference between us. His idea isn’t the worst I’ve seen from the Republicans. It just doesn’t go far enough to actually help everyone. Yes, some people need to go learn a trade, but we shoukd be equipping our public schools to do that. No one can take a trade out form your hands, and our students need to be told that. I’m calling on the GOP to fund public schools to expand their vocational programs. Getting people out of debt when their drowning is great; but let’s give people a chance before they’re sinking. “ View full PR
