Nancy Pelosi Suffers CONVULSIONS During Border Wall Speech(VIDEO)!!!
Anyway. It's. All about the numbers more, points, more votes. So. Here we are, thank, God government, is open again. And. Now we can negotiate on, how, what, the best way is to have, border security, to enforce. Our homeland, security goals, what. This is so. Important, and I hope that any shutdown. Would be taken, off the table as a, reasonable. Approach. To. Governance, it. Is it, had, terrible impacts, as you know in the lives of the, families affected by our federal, employees who are not receiving their paychecks, in, a timely fashion by. Their communities, where since. The paychecks, were, not coming the community. Suffered, as well in its own individual. Economies, and impact. On our national, economy, as, well in terms of the, GDP, of, harming, GDP growth it's, harmful to our veterans, many of whom the third of the public and federal, employees about, 31 percent to, a third of our federal employees are, veterans. And for. Veterans if, as. Many of them have their jobs because they have security clearance. And security, clearance is affected, by. Your credit rating and your credit rating is affected by your ability to pay your bills on, time so there, was such a negative, impact, and. Hopefully. We can do something to help our contractors. Because. They. Did are not, getting, paid under, the present, formulation. Of things and we there, are some initiatives, coming forward to, to. Help, those especially, our low paid. Contractors. So we. Know what the consequences, of a shutdown are and. So. Yesterday we had two bills on the floor one of them to. Say that a shutdown is. Long. And. 163. Almost. 163. Republicans. Voted no. To. A resolution, that said shutdowns are wrong, 163. Voted only. 21. Voted, YES on that and then there, was a federal employee pay, raise to make the federal pay. Consistent. With federal pay for the military, and, only. 29. Voted, YES on that. 163. 161. Voted no 163. Shutdowns. Are wrong 161. The, federal employee should be paid in a, fair way with their increase, involved, there so it was much unfortunate. So what is fortunate, is that we have a conference, committee that is working, and I think good spirit, the opening statements, yesterday I think were. Promising. House. And Senate, Democrats and, Republicans, again, as an appropriator, I take pride in the ability of the appropriations members. To reach. Consensus. Left to their own devices, without, any other interference. I talk, to them for guidance they know their, brief they know, there's. The. Dollar amounts, they know the impact, of. Investments. And all. Of that many of them have experience, in all of this I was very proud of our conferees. Including, one relatively. New member, mr.. Aguilar, because, he's. The vice chair, of the of the, Appropriations. Committee in the house and he, is therefore. One of the fewer. Than five terms members, so we had every. Aspect. Of our caucus represented. There, the. Border. Security those, members, our six, conferees. Came forth with a public. Statement about border. Security and. They. Put forth what they saw as the best way, the most cost effective way to. Have. Border security they talked about a hundred, a thousand, new class officers. New, imaging, technology. And critical repairs that they let land. Ports, of entry as, you know the. 90%. Of, whatever. It comes into our country comes through in. The southern border comes through the ports of entry whether. It's asylum, seekers or whether it is, our. Drugs, and the rest of that so. Having. More funding, to. Repair. And expand, the ports of entry is very important, the technology. That goes with that not, intrusive scanning, that cars, and trucks and all can go right through without stopping, and the rest with, improved technology very. Important, and then, new equipment, at mail processing facilities, to, interdict. Fentanyl. And other opioids, ship through international.
Mail That's a big, issue for us and, cutting-edge. Technology not. Only at the ports of entry but other places on. The border and then, expansion. Of. Border. Patrols of air and marine operations along. The border and u.s. water so the, these, are that's not the. Total package but, that are there are some of the, major. Points. Of. Discussion. I would hope as. We go forward now so but I was pleased with yesterday, I thought everybody. Was. Of good intention, and that is the way the probations. Committee usually works the. Me. As this all goes on we. Have been since the election, preparing, our for, the people agenda, lowering, health care costs by, lowering the, cost of prescription drugs and ensuring, that pre-existing. Condition, benefit, continues. Lowering. Health care costs increasing. The paychecks. By building the infrastructure, of, American agreeing way from sea to shining sea. And HR. 1 which is moving along our integrity in government, to. Increase the Centers. Of the American, people and so. That they know that the people's agenda, will happen and not the special interest, agenda, so, that paycheck. Spareness, had it's one, of the hearings yesterday, yesterday. We. Also had. A great, yesterday, was that this. Week we observed that tenth anniversary of, President Obama, signing. That paycheck, lilly. Ledbetter, Act was, one of the first bills we sent as a Democratic, Congress to our new newly, inaugurated. Democratic. President, of the United States and, his first bill, was to, sign was lilly Ledbetter, which, opened, the door to more fairness in the workplace but. It wasn't Paycheck. Fairness completely, so yesterday on, that anniversary, once. Again and, it was a DeLauro and she's been introducing, it I think every Congress, for as long as I can remember we, did pass, it a number of times when we had the majority but, we couldn't get the 60 votes in the Senate so, never was taken up there now, patty Murray is a. Co-sponsor of, the legend the lead, sponsor in the Senate, on that and that, is equal pay for equal, work. Yesterday. Was the 10th anniversary of setting out three times April. 2nd, is equal. Pay day that, is the day at. Which women start to get paid for their work for, the year as opposed. To what men make for the year so we hope that this bill could, be signed into law or by, that day all a part. Of the for, the people agenda, for bigger paychecks. Lower. Health care cost more, integrity, in. Government, any questions. Yes. Ma'am we got, the blue sign today. During, the government shutdown we heard from President Trump and his offering, to, provide three years of protection for, daca. Recipients, I'm wondering if in these current negotiations. If the fate of dreamers, is being discussed, or you. Know our dreamers getting lost on all first, of all let me clarify. What, the president did he. Did not have what he did. The. Dreamers, daca, that, that's. A narrower universe. The dreamers, are twice the number of the doctor recipient, so, but in his comments. He said, he wanted to protect the daca what he did was he. Took away the protections, daca had, he, took away the protection, TPS, had, temporary, protectors, status. People. In our country had it took away an. Initiative. Of President Obama to. Facilitate, amnesty. Questions. In. The country in the country of origin he, took those away, and then. He said I'm, going, to give these back to you temporarily. If you, give me a wrong well you should have taken them away in the first place these, protections, were there until you, decided, to take them away and so, now you're going to come back and say I'll give them back to you for three years that is not a protection, protection. Is something, that has certainty, to it so it was, really. Disappointing. Having. Said that about what the president did I. Take. These there. These. Are protections, that exist, I'll take, them away I'll, give them to you temporarily. You, give me a wall permanently, a non-starter. Yes. So and then in terms of this negotiation us. Up to the conferees. To, negotiate, but the point is what is the best way to protect. Our our. Border, and you've. Heard some of the ideas that are there many of which the. President talked about in that speech as well we.
Recognized, As I said 70, 90, percent of the. What we're concerned about whether it's drugs or whatever comes, through the ports of entry let's, make them stronger. With. Roads to go with it so that we can facilitate commerce. And. Tourism. And, and, immigration. And first, and foremost security. Committee. Should be left to consensus. Of its own devices yes, whatever, the product is are you committed to allowing a floor vote. Whatever. Conference, agreement, that they have are you committed to that, well. If they come out with a bipartisan, consensus. Of course you, can include, border wall money though. We're. Not having a negotiation, over this right now they're having a negotiation. Over it is there there's. Not gonna be any war money, in the, end of legislation. The. However. If, they have some suggestions. About certain. Localities. Where. Technology. Some. Infrastructures, I said about the ports of entry we might need more ports of entry I mean that means some, roads that's, that's part of the negotiation and, then it is not a negotiation, for the president say isn't. As. What. Congress what did he say today Congress, is it, doesn't matter what Congress does I knew. That he wanted it all to him semi oh really. The, foot president, who wants to have Congress, be completely, irrelevant and how. We meet the needs of the American people, now come, on so. That let. Them work their will, I'm an appropriate, see, that's, where one of the places I was forged intelligence. Should. Go to that subject on the present intelligence. And appropriations. And they. Know they're they know their brief they know their limitations. In terms of financial. Resources, and, they. Have to choose the best way to use the money for, the American people, that's. Why I have confidence in what they can do. Supporting. Legislation that would end government, shutdowns in a in a planet way would. You support legislation to. Effectively, outlaw gang. Well yeah but we there's, so many of. Possibilities. On the table, that I don't think that that should be part of this agreement, because. There's not a consensus. On as to what that would be if there, is a consensus. Maybe it could be but we only have we, have to just, say you know in order to have a bill, signed. By the president, by the. Three. Weeks we. Have to have a signed a conference. Report by, next Friday so we, only have this week plus one day with. The State of the Union between, two. To get this done in order for them bring it to the floor and have it on the President's, desk so. To the extent that we can keep it simple. Is this about this is about border, security, homeland. Security which is a bigger issue. And it's about the six other bills that need to be passed, in order to completely open. Up government but which are not, controversial. And again. I feel confident. About the ability of Congress to, do the right thing and that respecting. The. Differences of opinion, might be there but that's what a negotiation. Is about so. Could. There be a consensus. That I know it at least three, different versions, of the story and. I.
You, You have to have a consensus, keep it simple there's something that can be injected there but certainly we, should not have any more. Democrats. Considering. The comments from governor, Northam yesterday, how does that make it harder for pro-life, democrats, in the party does that cause problems bill I'm sorry I just don't know what he said yesterday. The. President continued. Actually, I'm reminded Special Counsel, investigation raised. The question what, does Putin have on the present, politically. Do. You really believe it that someone has something, compromising. I think. It's a question but, by the way I've been asking that question for two years almost, as long as you've asked me is there any money for the wall and the bill. No. I've always said that what is this what is this that, something is wrong with this picture, yeah. I. Just. Learned that are you planning, to take any further action given, that it's discrepancies. Between, the president, and his intelligence. Advisors. When it comes to global, Hawks, well I think what the public, saw this week was. The fact that the president, has not, paid. Attention, to. The intelligence, that has, given, to him on many of these subjects, I thought, it was courageous that, the. Different. Heads of different, aspects of our intelligence community. Spoke. Truth, to the, country, and to to, power their. Opening, statements, are usually vetted, by. The White House. So. They. Made their statements, and also. They answered, the questions, I'll. See. What our intelligence I'm, very proud of Adam. Schiff and the members of the Intelligence, Committee. As to when they will have that that. Particular, presentation made, to. The House Intelligence, Committee. In open. Forum, there, may be some. Closed. Activity. With the appropriations committee I'm not sure about that but. The. This. Was stunning, and as I say is one who's started. In the early 90s, as an appropriator, and one, who served as a, ranking. Member that job that item Schiff had until he now became chairman, and then, ex officio, for all, the years I've been leader or Speaker. Of the House I. Tracked. This very closely, and one dismaying. Factor, of it all is that the president, just doesn't seem to have the attention. Span or, the, desire, to hear, what, the intelligence community. Has been telling him so, for him to make. This statement that he did yesterday that's. Cause for concern. Well. I think that it's important, for the. Republicans, in Congress to, recognize. That they have to weigh, in with the President to say you, can't act without knowledge, the, intelligence. Community. Is there. To be a protection. For the American people when I started, all those years ago it. Was about force protection, I've shared this with some of his about force protection. It. Was about other overarching, issues, money laundering, and and and, those kinds of things and how they affected, our. Security, but then of course. The. Anti-terrorism, initiatives. In the 90s emerged and and you, know much, of what has happened since, then but it is a real, protection, for us to keep us from having, to go in to initiate, hostilities.
Or If, we do to, make sure that, we have the intelligence to protect our. Men and women in uniform and, also. To. Fight terrorism, in its many, forms so, for, the President to say, almost. Again. We don't need Congress, and, I, know more, about what's. Happening and, our threats, in the world worldwide threats than, the intelligence. Community, even, though I haven't, paid attention when, people have described, it to me that's, a cause for concern and I would hope that the Republicans in, the Congress would, either. Have. An intervention with the president, about that. Or. Recognize. The problem that it faces to our country and take some congressional, action. I. Don't. Know that I did, not hear his comments but you. Know have. You seen did you see the presentation, yesterday. Of, Henry, Cuellar of Texas. Was, the only border, person, actually there although all, of our Californians, are a border state and. But. In Texas, he's. Aboard he represents, Lorado and surrounding, areas, there and he, showed the, border many. Places on the border they're cliffs. There, are. There's. A river and the. That. And there's. 600. Miles of something. 300. Of them are Normandy, fences, they go like this have you know an only defensive 300. Miles of this so that cars cannot go by if. The president, wants to call that a wall. He can call it along he's, referencing, you that we already have and, we're 700, miles of wall so, again, is there place for enhanced. Fancy, Normandy. Fencing, would work. Let. Them have that discussion, because it's all about two. Things. Cost-benefit. Analysis. What's. The best way and what. You get for your dollar in order, to protect. The border and it's. Also about, and this will be coming up if you take, some extraordinary, action the, opportunity. Cost of the money, if. The money can be used better for for, for. Technology. Then. Let's see what's the best and by, the way when some of these fences were born or. Were. Built. The. Technology was, not what it is today so, you, have to look at technology in, a new form. Just. As we say that should we all just get landlines, in our homes so we have smart phones well. What should we be doing on, the border that, like, a landline, versus, the technology, that our. Our. Personnel, on the border should have so. What they're talking about is more personnel. Enhancements. Of the ports of entry which we, require. Construction. We already had that in the bill we passed last, week in terms that went under the, Department. Of Treasury. Appropriations. Bill because it's GSA, well that's more. On the subject then you may want to know so, you let the let the negotiators. See. If there's something that could there only about 30 miles left, if. You saw mr. Cuellar. Presentation. Of the, 700. That have not been and. A, lot of it is that what, the cars go by some. Of it is about levees, and the rest of that so what. Do they have to say for that last 30, miles thank, you all very much. Thank, you, god bless you and God, bless america.
