Border Wall Funding Never Got Off The Ground

This is good news—and it you have been reading along over past days as was predicted.

It was announced that Senate leaders have a stopgap funding deal to avert a federal government shutdown.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced this morning that a short-term bill to fund the government through February 8th will be introduced later today in a deal that would avert a partial government shutdown over the Christmas holiday.

The resolution will not include $5 billion for the border wall that Trump had said was necessary for his approval. The White House, without saying it would support a stopgap measure, has insisted in recent days that Congress must pass something before the government’s operating authority expires on Friday. Now the confrontation over the wall may be postponed until the next Congress, when Democrats will control the House.

And so it goes.  The racist wall idea that is.

Goes, bye, bye.
