After Budget Proposal, Coulter Begs The Question: Why Bother Voting Republican Anymore?

Political pundit Ann Coulter has joined other conservatives in blasting the congressional budget agreement that prevented a government shutdown.

The Hill reported that the commentator called the legislation, which Republican and Democratic leaders supported, “a bill straight out of George Soros’ dream journal” in her column on Wednesday. She was referring to the billionaire investor and philanthropist who is a major Democratic Party campaign contributor.

“If this is the budget deal we get when Republicans control the House, the Senate, and the presidency, there’s no point in ever voting for a Republican again,” Coulter declared. “Not only is there no funding for a (U.S.-Mexico border) wall, but -- thanks to the deft negotiating skills of House Speaker Paul Ryan -- the bill actually prohibits money from being spent on a wall.” The column carried the headline “SWAMP PEOPLE: 47; TRUMP: 0,” a dig at the president’s campaign promise to “drain the swamp” of insiders in the nation’s capital.

Coulter ridiculed Mick Mulvaney, the administration’s budget director, for being “ridiculously chipper” about the budget agreement. He “described the bill’s prohibition on building a wall as a MAJOR win,” the commentator wrote. She is not the only Trump supporter who is angry about the president’s failure to fulfill his pledge to erect the border barrier and “make Mexico pay for it.”

“True, there will be no wall, but the Democrats graciously agreed to allow the administration to fix broken parts of any existing fences on up to 40 miles of our 3,000-mile border,” Coulter wrote. According to CNN, the federal budget already provided for such repairs. Lawmakers rejected the administration’s request for $1 billion to begin building the wall that Trump promised.

Coulter argued that Congress cannot continue to delay difficult spending decisions by approving short-term budget plans. “That has become the GOP’s official motto: ‘Next time!’” she wrote. “We can never win this time. Instead, Republicans’ idea is always to surrender this time, in hopes that their gentlemanliness will be rewarded by their mortal enemies next time.”
