@LindseyGrahamSC: The U.S. military has to work to accomplish their objectives. They don't get to point fingers or pass the buck. Congress could learn a lot from them and learn to get the job done regardless who gets the credit, or in this case, the blame.
Vidro: President Trump ignores shouted questions about a possible government shutdown after speaking to March for Life via satellite
@LindseyGrahamSC: We could easily pass a continuing resolution – which lasts days (certainly more than the four proposed by the Senate Minority Leader) and less than the 30 days passed by the House of Representatives – to close the deal on outstanding issues which remain.
@LindseyGrahamSC: It's time Congress stop the cycle of dysfunction, grow up, and act consistent with the values of a great nation. The White House should engage and lead us to a solution.
[email protected]: "The MarchforLife is a movement born out of love. You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation, and you love every child-born and unborn-because you believe that every life is sacred."
@LindseyGrahamSC: Our military, which desperately needs additional funding as they are already scraping by, doesn't win. American people who expect the government to be functioning and operating don't win. Cynicism about the ability of Congress and Pres to solve problems increases even further.
"We are with you all the way," the Pres tells March for Life participants.

President says nobody expected companies would start paying bonuses to employees because of the tax cuts. "It turned out to be much bigger than we all thought."
"Even I never knew how big it would be," says Pres Trump of the early impact of his tax cut bill. "It's much bigger than anyone anticipated." Says family of four making $75K will get tax cut of $2,000 and many will save "much more than that."
