Conservatives are getting tired of all the winning–by Democrats.
Matt House, Communications Director for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), ridiculed President Trump’s “tired of winning” slogan shortly after the Republican head of state on Friday signed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill widely seen by his supporters as betraying key conservative causes.
I, for one, am tired of all the winning.

“I, for one, am tired of all the winning,” House wrote.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also declared victory. “[T]his bill was a victory for investment in our future,” The American Mirror reported her as saying at a press conference.
The massive bill included funding for planned parenthood and sanctuary cities–both of which President Trump and conservatives have promised to defund.
The legislation did not provide the president’s desired $25 billion for construction of a wall along the US-Mexican border.
It instead allocated $1.6 billion, most of which is required to go to existing fencing. Additionally, the bill forces the Department of Homeland Security to reduce the number of detention beds for illegal aliens, the Washington Times reports.
President Trump said he signed the bill reluctantly and will “NEVER sign another bill like this again.”
As a matter of National Security I've signed the Omnibus Spending Bill. I say to Congress: I will NEVER sign another bill like this again. To prevent this omnibus situation from ever happening again, I'm calling on Congress to give me a line-item veto for all govt spending bills! https://t.co/kYwMk5AE5k

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) praised the bill for increasing military spending. But members of the House Freedom Caucus, including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), blasted the budget.
“This may be the worst bill I have seen in my time in Congress,” Jordan told Fox News. He added: “The one thing we don’t fund is the one issue we all campaigned on — a border security wall — and that is not in the legislation.”
Many of the president’s supporters offered similar criticism.

“SWAMP” won. YUGE fail today. @realDonaldTrump drove stake through heart of his own base. Disaster. I only need to read hundreds of emails from my fans. All the energy is gone. Stabbed own people. You left us to die on battlefield like William Dafoe in Platoon.

The new budget legislation will trigger a trillion-dollar deficit, or come very close to that…There’s an awful lot of pork in it. You’d think it would fund the critical needs of our country. Does it? Not even close. It does pretty much the opposite of what was voted for in ’16.

Democrats want to bankrupt the nation and Trump got played by them.
NOBODY won today except the corruption cretins in Washington that stuff their wallets and off shore bank accounts with tax payer money.
They are laughing at cocktail parties right now and make fun of US.

It’s typical. They promise us fiscal responsibility but then swing the other way in the crunch time.

Republicans can say bye bye to their majority after the midterms. And at this point? I’m not even mad about it.
