Conservative Leader: Don’t Tie Harvey Relief to Debt debate

The chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus says aid for victims of Hurricane Harvey should not be part of a vehicle to raise the debt ceiling.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), an ally of President Trump who leads the conservative caucus, said disaster aid should pass on its own, apart from separate measures the government must pick up in September to raise the nation’s borrowing limit and fund the government.
“The Harvey relief would pass on its own, and to use that as a vehicle to get people to vote for a debt ceiling is not appropriate,” he said an interview with The Washington Post, signaling agreement with Trump on the approach.
It would “send the wrong message” to add $15 to $20 billion of spending while increasing the debt ceiling, Meadows added.

    Congress has to add “pork” to every bill to satisfy every congressman so he can impress “the folks back home” he is diligently working for them. Never mind he has his hand in it to get part of it for himself.

    Pass a clean bill on the debt ceiling, the recovery, and on the wall. No piggy backing. Let people see who votes for what. Trump seemed to have no problem putting the wall on the debt ceiling bill so why would he have a problem with adding the flood relief as well.

  • Walter Flatt says:

    DO NOT ADD A LOT OF PORK TO ANY RELIEF PROGRAMS LIKE YOU DID IN NJ.

    WE ARE IN WORLD WAR 3 WITH THE MUSLIM RACE. WHY SO MANY MUSLIM CAMPS AND FEMA CAMPS WITH ARMED GUARDS. HAVE WE BEEN SET UP FOR A TRY FOR A MUSLIM INVASION.

    GOOGLE PUBLIC LAW 414, PG 2, SECTION 212, PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS. ALSO, GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES, AND GENERAL BLACKJACK PERSHING.
