OK, so, before I begin, I have a confession: I have NOT been paying as much attention to political matters as I once did (and I am actually doing better for it, but that’s another post). Anyway, I know that this means I am writing out of a bit of ignorance, so, please, make some allowance for this.
Now, I have some questions that I hope this board can help me with:
1 — They are about to try to pass a SENATE written budget in the House today. A budget is a spending bill. When did they amend the Constitution to allow spending bills to be started in the Senate?
2 — I still listen to Rush, Beck, Hannity and a few others, and they are mostly defending Trump’s efforts to get this Senate budget pushed through the House. In the past, these same people would have been screaming bloody murder about how this is a violation of the Constitution (if it still is, I don’t know). So, when did these ‘conservative’ commentators come over the the Left’s way of thinking (“Violating the Constitution is OK, as long as it’s my side doing it.”)
Have I missed something? Or am I just not understanding how things have to get done again?
