    Tom DeLay: 'Most Embarrassing Shutdown' Looms

    Tom DeLay: 'Most Embarrassing Shutdown' Looms

    January 19, 2018

    Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV Friday that if the federal government shuts down on Friday at midnight, "this has got to be the most embarrassing shutdown I've ever seen."


    "They're continuing a resolution that's being offered and passed through the House, offered to the Senate that contains everything that the Democrats are for — particularly CHIP, the health insurance program for children," DeLay told "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker.



    A former Texas Republican congressman, DeLay was majority leader from 2003 to 2005.


    "The Democrats have decided to take their stand so that they can offer amnesty to illegal immigrants," he said. "That is not the way to do these shutdowns.


    "If you're going to shut down, you shut down over something that's important to everybody in the United States.


    "A lot of people are going to be upset if the Congress gives amnesty to illegal immigrants," he said.
    The biggest casualty, DeLay told Tucker, would be the U.S. military.


    "Here we have the military fighting a war in Afghanistan, fighting the war against terrorists," he explained. "We're facing North Korea right now — and we're playing around with the morale of our troops.


    "They'll get their money. They'll get paid eventually, but the point is now their families are wondering when are they going to get paid, when are they going to get their money.

    Most of our younger military members live paycheck to paycheck.

    What's really flips my wagon is the fact that all members of the U.S. Congress will continue to receive their pay on schedule. How does it make sense to place a hold on paying someone serving in Afghanistan who has a wife and three children stateside while continuing to pay those congress critters who are tucked in safely and riding the gravy train?

    They should be fined one day's pay for each day the budget is late. And that shouldn't include a "Continuing Resolution". They have a whole year to come up with an agreement to vote on. That is plenty of time.

    President Trump named it "Schumer's Shut Down". That's the way it should be portrayed.

    Rand Paul said their are 12 departments in the Government to Fund. All rolled up into one big mess of a budget!

    They need to vote on a budget for each department separately!

    No earmarks, no pork and no fat!

    Stop the waste, fraud and abuse of our money!!!

    Yeah, that's right, the House passed the 12 appropriation bills in August of 2017 and sent them to the Senate where they've been stuck ever since.
