Wow, someone said it! Barack Obama weaponized every Federal agency for personal gain. It will take decades to remove that stain from the Government.
Does anyone remember when the Park Service put up barriers around Washington memorials on Veteran’s Day, that was Obama.
I’m glad White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney recognized that the 2013 government shutdown was intentionally made worse for political reasons. I remember that the Obama admin even spent the money to put barricades around the Washington Monument and the Mall. In my view, this and similar measures such as shutting down all national parks was a partisan abuse of government power. The shutdown should have been implemented in a way that was as least-disruptive as possible, not manipulated to cause a backlash.
I’m happy that Mulvaney is acting responsibly if a new shutdown occurs.
“I’ve been through some of these before,” he said. “The Democrats are opposing a bill that they don’t oppose! … They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill.”
“I just want to let everybody know,” he said about the potential government shutdown: “We do not want this, we do not want a shutdown, but if Mr. Schumer insists on it, he is in a position to force this on the American people.”
“The only conclusion I can draw is they did it for political purposes. So it will look different this time around,” he said about the impending shutdown of 2018.
The White House Budget Director continued: “From an OMB perspective because we are involved in managing a lapse or a shutdown, we want to make folks understand that it will look very different than it did under the previous administration. One of the things I’ve learned since I’ve been in this office is, there is no other way to describe it, but the Obama administration weaponized the shutdown of 2013. What they did not tell you is they did not encourage agencies to use carry-forward funds, funds that they were sitting on. Nor did they encourage agencies to use transfer authority. They could have made a shutdown in 2013 much less impactful, but they chose to make it worse. The only conclusion I can draw is they did it for political purposes. So it will look different this time around.”
He’s right once again. Obama tried to punish people by spending money to go put up barricades to the national monuments I mentioned before. They went out of their way to try to hurt people for political gain. That summarizes the eight years under Obama —weaponize all of the federal agencies to attack their political opponents.
Every day we see more and more proof the Democrats hate America! And the icing on the cake is the budget, the hell with Americans, it illegals first!
