Republicans Change Mind About Pentagon Slush Fund


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Mick Mulvaney used to criticize armed forces fraudulence and also abuse, but now that Republicans are in charge, he recommends it. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Inform us exactly what you assume in the comment section listed below.

" Considering that 2001, the Department of Defense has spent greater than $9 trillion on everything from new weapons systems to soldier salaries, and virtually 20 percent of that money– $1.7 trillion in overall– has actually come from an "off-the-books" spending plan account called the Overseas Contingency Workflow fund. It's the best-known budget plan gimmick in Washington, a traditional example of Democrats as well as Republicans discovering commonalities when they wish to improve protection spending while technically abiding by the present budget plan caps.

But starting in 2017, an intense movie critic of that trick is set to become one of the most vital individuals in the Washington budget world. President-elect Donald Trump lately picked Rep. Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Monitoring as well as Budget, the tiny yet effective company that creates the president's annual budget. It's an amazingly powerful role, specialists state, allowing Mulvaney to leave his fingerprints on every corner of the federal government– and also, notably, providing him a direct line to Trump on matters of federal spending.

Mulvaney has been among the loudest critics of the fund throughout his time in Congress, hammering it as a "slush fund" and also funding regulations to eliminate it. Currently, all of a sudden, he will certainly find himself in an one-of-a-kind position to kill it off. Could he do it?" *.

    I love Cenk. Sitting at the feet of this modern day Socrates as he shares his wisdom with me is what I look forward to all day.

    I think it’s funny that Republicans are supposed to be for values that are not about murdering people. No abortions allowed but it’s cool when it’s bombing kids in another country or if you are poor. They want to hurt you with health care so that the poor die. How does that fit in with Thou shall not kill?

    I hate the bloated military too, but Trump had to temporary give up on the wall just not to appear weak to North Korea and the Chinese with a government shutdown. There’s bigger things at play right now that will hopefully be finally resolved.

    • Posted by Kevin Montrond, at Reply

      You mean that border wall he preached his entire campaign at every rally? Guess Trumptards think its not important and are ok with being lied to.

    • Posted by vick3d, at Reply

      Kevin, if he shut down the government and North Korea did some attack during that shutdown, don’t you think Trump supporters would find that worse than delaying the wall?

    • Posted by Kevin Montrond, at Reply

      Im sure you will be using that excuse 3 years from now.

    Obama drops bombs —-> He is evil!!
    Trump drops 11 ton bomb—-> He’s our savior!

    Republicans have a mental illness and cant seem to make up their mind.

      unbiased I’d like to believe Obama did everything as a way of pulling out of the wars, but it was clear the military industrial complex had their hand in purposely screwing things up to extend everything.

      You have NEVER answered a question so you’re everything you say I am, dippy.

    • Posted by captain bigballs, at Reply

      +Listenbuddyzero. I have asked you this question for almost two months now as any Youtuber will be able to see the comments’s trail. You have yet to answer it. You do not get to counter my question with another question. I’ll ask you the question again. Politicians are passing more deregulation for big business and big banks in the United States due to illegal bribes. This leads to huge tax breaks for the very wealthy. Is the current economy working out for the middle or poor class? Yes or no? Reply.

    • Posted by Listenbuddy1, at Reply

      +captain bigballs Again, I answered it MY way. I’m not going to re-word it just because you’re mentally challenged. You need to move on with your dippy life.

    • Posted by captain bigballs, at Reply

      +Listenbuddyzero. Exactly. You answered it “your way” which is no answer at all. You continue to skirt the issue. For many years, politicians are passing more deregulation for big business and big banks in the United States because of illegal bribes. The wealthy gets a huge tax breaks in return. Is the current economy working out for the middle or poor class? Yes or no? Answer it.

    • Posted by Ian Hardin, at Reply

      It should be easy to answer.

      He he – Stephen Colbert has been tearing Alice Jones and his weedy little hillbilly fanboys who tap away in
      their trailers apart with his funny new video. No wonder Jones can’t get any youtube adds and is crying about it because he is FAKE NEWS.

      Alex dangerous Jones! Aka anti-establishment/ fake news killer..

      James Eslick won’t help get Alex Jones get any youtube add revenue sadly. Glue sniffing weedy little
      redneck with bad tattoos, pays for handjobs from some rough white trash in Walmart carpark when he can
      afford it.

    If you’re a republican voter how are you ok w/ this? Moreover how can you justify all the money being spent on endless wars & conflicts yet complain about the debt when it comes to programs which go to benefit the American people?

    I guess that’s the market regulating itself

    • Posted by Barry, at Reply

      01coyote13 Such a joke of an argument by Republicans. The end-game of capitalism is monopoly. Americans realized it 100 years ago and created anti-trust law to break up the monopolies. Today, corporations are skirting anti-trust law by owning a ton of companies and pretending to compete. Sad that Americans today are dumber than Americans 100 years ago.

      Armando Sanchez What do you think? The Bush administration delivered 6 billion dollars in cash to Iraq that went “missing.”
