Lone Texas Republican BLOCKS $19 billion disaster bill that just passed the Senate and now Pelosi is FURIOUS!

A Freshman Republic Congressman from Texas has just blocked the 19 billion dollar disaster relief bill that passed the Senate last night.

Chip Roy, who used to be the chief of staff for Ted Cruz, objected to a unanimous consent request to pass the bill.

He did so on the grounds that the bill doesn’t contain the modest funding request of 4.4 billion by the OMB Director to keep DHS and HHS from running out of money while they deal with the border crisis.

Also, Roy said bill money isn’t paid for which he attributes to both sides of the aisle.



 
Pelosi was furious that Roy blocked this, calling it ‘sabotage’:

So what happens next?

The block by Roy is only temporary and the House will vote on the bill when they resume their session the week of June 3rd.

So this isn’t really a huge deal, but it’s nice to see a conservative Republican from Texas flip over the apple cart for all to see to make a necessary point that hardly ever gets made anymore.

  1. If he were democrat, I would likely feel differently. I truly hate it when congress tries to pass something laden with pork or other pet projects. While that might not be the case here, it does seem to me and my little brain that he’s trying to add something that probably should be a straight – one issue – bill. Whenever politicians combine things, it makes me nuts.

    I’m guessing this is good… but I don’t know enough to tell one way or the other. :question:

    1. I believe it’s more about having SOME accountability and discussion in what is in the bill, rather than just writing a check for $19,000,000,000 with no discussion whatsoever by the House of Representatives.

      This is a good thing.

    1. This is a $19B bill that is not paid for, when we are racking up $100 million dollars of debt per hour.

      But I’m blocking it because it’s not $23.4B.

      1. I mean, I guess I’m glad that it’s blocked. But why not just block it and, and leave the “where’s MY borrowed money” part out?

    1. Seems more personal, like maybe she’s upset she missed part of her luncheon and will only be able to squeeze in 3 martinis instead of the usual 11.

      1. W.C. Fields once said, “If it weren’t for the olives in my martinis
        I wouldn’t have any solid food at all.” I’m sure WC wouldn’t mind
        if Nancy borrowed this phrase from him.

  2. Representative Roy is my congressman, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with what he’s doing.

    FANTASTIC conservative! We need more like him up in DC!

  3. If AOC had blocked it Pelosi wouldn’t be “furious”. It’s only because Chip is a Conservative.

  4. Thank God there is someone there to stand up and show what a crock these politicians are. Thank you Chip Roy! :thumbsup: :clapping:

    1. I am very fortunate, he’s my congressman. He replaced Lamar Smith who was a kind of go-along to get-along type…voted well mostly, but never tried to move the needle in our favor.

      Roy is much more like Ted Cruz and perfectly willing to throw a monkey wrench in the lush’s machine just in time to disrupt her 19 martini lunch.

      1. I used to drive a truck and have been to your area many times and liked it a lot! Glad you’ve got a good representative now!

        1. That was a relative comparison, thus the phrase “much more like” instead of “perfect, exact copy of.”

          Nobody who is honest ever agrees with somebody else 100% of the time…unless they’re just emulating instead of thinking.

          1. I was referring to the vote not the individual. I also agree with you on your point about disagreements.

  5. The money for Puerto Rico is disgusting especially since they got and get billions which is blown by the Commies who run it . As long as the cash that goes to these Tyrannical places is handled by them, we will never get ahead. We don’t send money to the ASPCA. We take food, toys and beds etc. to our local shelters. These people are not capable or deserving of handling anything…

  6. I notice on my calendar that Memorial Day is May 27th, why do politicians not return to work until June 3rd? ❗

    Also, cheers to Rep. Roy, willing to say it like it is and refuse to be plowed over by the establishment. I hope he is able to rally the rest of the troops to refuse to sign on to this without the added money for DHS.

    1. I don’t. He did the right thing with this but he can be very liberal in various areas. He needs a bit more seasoning first.

  7. Saying one congressman sabotaged it is like saying one dropped catch lost the football game. Every play counts, not just the one at at the last second. If you play the game better, every play, whether its football or politics, the last play won’t matter. If Nancy doesn’t like it, maybe it’s on her for losing so many Democrat seats in the last 10 years.

    1. I am praying America is sick to death of the demonrats, who have overplayed their hands over the past 2+ years, and we vote them all out (would love to see the RINOs go too, replaced by conservatives who have served in our military!).

      1. “would love to see the RINOs go too, replaced by conservatives who have served in our military”

        This would require a change in the RNC, too. Because they don’t pick WINNERS. In my state the best of the best is always NOT the candidate. sigh…

  8. I’d like to know what happened to all the money set aside in the omnibus bill of Feb 15, 2019 – Page 13 – $4 Billion is substantial

    and of which not less than $4,273,857,000 shall be for enforcement, detention, and removal operations, including transportation of unaccompanied minor aliens

    DHS Office of the Secretary received $141,381,000
    Management Directorate Operations & Support rec’d $1,083,837,000 plus $176 M for procurement, construction, improvements.
    $58,710,000 is for additional customs officers
    There’s other money as well.

    That was 3 months ago….where is all this money going?

  9. AWWWWW, Nancy is furious….another gray hair, a few more wrinkles and another ulcer or two for the leaderless “Speaker,” whose only plan is to RESIST! Even her battery of beauticians are unable to put poor Nancy back together again. Meanwhile, hey Nancy!!!! Let’s see YOUR taxes…ALL of them…command the IRS to release all of the taxes you and Paul have filed, and your businesses and investment concerns, donations, AND all of your bank statements, including your overseas investments. YOU FIRST B!

    1. No, she’s not the “angry drunk” sort…I think this is a hangover tantrum, she’s in pain, angry at the world, and her morning drinks haven’t started to take effect yet.

      1. He might be a deceitful leftist elitist, but he’s not stupid. Would you want to deal with a sober Nancy Pelosi?

        No way he’ll intervene…he can barely tolerate her when she’s tipsy. Fortunately for him, that covers most waking hours.

  14. The taste of Liberty. How sweet it is!

    Of course he will be called a mean racist for not voting for disaster relief. Same song second chorus

    1. We Texans take care of one another and simply do not rely on government to save and protect us. Disasters happen and that is when values-based humanity swings into action to help one another without thinking about the sloth-like actions of a RESIST movement by half of our government. VOTE THOSE CLOWNS OUT!

  15. I can understand why he voted it down if everyone was not there to vote; when these clowns leave town for yet another vacation, instead of doing their jobs, there should be not vote at all until they either come back from their vacation or they suspend their vacation to actually work, for a change, FOR THE PEOPLE!

  16. You know it is pork filled and will enhance the financial portfolios of all these politicians as they get their kick backs from their friends and families businesses that get contracts.

    1. Then you would expect them to be there to vote, right? They are the laziest bums ever.

  17. Listen! Do you heat that? That’s the sound of Republican testosterone levels rising.

    1. If only their spines would strengthen too. Toss in some good old-fashioned American values and we may win!

  18. Does this mean those Politicians who left for their spring break,will be coming back early or not leaving until this issue gets resolved.
    .

  19. “So this isn’t really a huge deal, but it’s nice to see a conservative Republican from Texas flip over the apple cart for all to see to make a necessary point that hardly ever gets made anymore.”

    AMEN and AMEN….and every American should be deeply disturbed that the apple cart doesn’t get flipped more often by conservatives to make necessary points! We’re still in deeper trouble than anyone can imagine….but hey! Unemployment at record lows!

    1. I’m thinking she’s probably had to increase her BP meds the last couple of weeks, and maybe re-evaluate her heart meds?? Poor, poor Nan…. :whew:

        1. @charli It’s the negative cause and affect of breathing in the toxic fumes emanating from the mounds of human feces piled up in the streets of San Fransisco.

    2. I would love to see daily destruction of Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler and the rest of those worthless POS’s; Nadler collapsed at some wackadoodle event with Deblasio today. Probably too much booze.

  20. nice to see a conservative Republican from Texas flip over the apple cart

    lol. I love it. More people in Congress need to release the chains leaderships have on them. I would love labels to be dispensed with entirely and leadership represents all the people not just their team colors.

  21. I appreciate rep., Chip Roy’s candor in informing the American public about why this bill is fiscally irresponsible and that it doesn’t include funding for the DHS and HHS so that they can deal with the border crisis and resulting issues.

  22. Was some of that pork going to restock her liquor cabinet? I could see why she’s p*ssed…….

      1. He might be a deceitful leftist elitist, but he’s not stupid. Would you want to deal with a sober Nancy Pelosi?

  23. Congressman Roy’s district includes a small portion of both San Antonio and Austin but is mostly rural Texas between the two. He’s probably going to hear whining from some of his constituents and cheers from the rest.

  24. If AOC had blocked it Pelosi wouldn’t be “furious”. It’s only because Chip is a Conservative.

  26. Are we sure Chip Roy’s objection is why she is furious?

    She might just be out of bourbon, whiskey, vodka, or whatever she was drinking since she woke up this morning.

    I’ve seen it before. In addition to “angry drunks,” there are also those who “take it out on the world” while suffering from a hangover and before their morning drinks kick in.
