True, I mean Trump gets blamed for not securing funding for the wall with a rep house.

It's just that simple, right?

The staggering lack of knowledge about how our government works never ceases to amaze me.

I guess copies of the Constitution are rare in Trinidad?!

Basically the budget is legislation.
The house passes bill by majority vote. The Senate either passes identical bill, similar bill, or doesn’t.
1. If identical passed the legislation goes to president for approval or disapproval.
2. If similar bill passed, the legislation goes to a House-Senate Confrence Committee where a compromise bill emerges. If both pass it it goes to president like #1.
3. If Senate doesn’t pass initial bill or if either or nether House or Senate doesn’t pass compromise bill, House must start over.
4. If identical bill passes both houses of Congress or the compromise one does and the president approves it becomes budgetary law. If not, 2/3s of both houses can try to override presidential veto. If they don’t both override or vote, it’s dead and goes back to House.

So no. The House doesn’t “control” the budget. They initiate spending bills, but both Senate and President must approve.

The last House last month approved a spending bill with the wall spending, but the Senate couldn’t muster 60 votes to vote on it. So now the new House must start over.

A better question is why do Dems care more about illegal immigrants than paying fed workers????
