Trump says he’s considering closing the government because Dems blocked Dreamer protections and border wall

I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded.

Congressman Frank Pallone broke from the bipartisan majority of the New Jersey delegation to vote against the federal omnibus spending bill which includes $540 million in funding for the Gateway project–the proposed new tunnel under the Hudson River–that has been touted as a critical infrastructure project for both the regional and national economy.
But you wouldn’t know that Phony Pallone voted against the bill if you visited his congressional website. There he touts as accomplishments pet projects of his that were included in the bill– a whole $1.5 million in brownfields funding to assist small communities, tribes, and rural or disadvantaged areas and special recognition for a Woodbridge site to become a park with 7000 feet of trails and a 800 foot boardwalk.

Congressman Frank Pallone and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rallied House Democrats to block the passage of legislation supported by President Trump that would allow terminally ill patients to try to extend their lives by using experimental drugs that have not been approved by the FDA.
President Trump called for the “right to try” legislation in his State of the Union Address. The U.S. Senate passed the bill unanimously and there is bi-partisan support for the bill in the House.
The bill was up for a ‘fast track’ vote in the House on Tuesday, which requires passage with votes from two-thirds of the chamber. The vote was 250 aye to 140 no, falling short of the two-thirds requirement.

The radical Democrat leaders will also be making stops in New Brunswick and Newark, according to published reports and an email blast by Congressman Frank Pallone.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 11th Legislative District, 2017 Elections, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Donna Brazile, Frank Pallone, Jennifer Beck, Keith Ellison, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Opinion, President Donald Trump, Racism, Tom Perez, Vin Gopal | 5 Comments »

Congressman refuses to address the $10K he’s accepted from EpiPen’s PAC
When asked to respond to his challenger’s call for him to return the $10K he’s accepted from Mylan Pharmaceuticals,the manufacturer of EpiPen, the lifesaving emergency treatment for anaphylactic shock, Congressman Frank Pallone blamed the 400% wholesale price increase for the drug on congressional Republicans.
“It’s outrageous that drug companies like Mylan continue to dramatically increase the cost of lifesaving drugs, and this is just the latest example of why Congress needs to tackle the overall problem. I’ve been a longtime and outspoken advocate for Congress and my committee to address this issue, but, unfortunately, the Republican majority has repeatedly refused to work with us to solve this problem. We must find a solution to ensure that American’s aren’t subject to the whims of bad actors in the Bio-Pharmaceutical Industry,” Pallone’s statement to Observer read.

Republican congressional candidate Brent Sonnek-Schmelz today demanded that Congressman Frank Pallone (Radical Progressive Liberal Democrat-Middlesex and Monmouth Counties) return the $10,000 he has collected from Mylan Pharmaceuticals’ political action committee and that Pallone explain his cozy financial relationships with the companies he is charged with overseeing as the ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Mylan and CEO Heather Bresch have come under scrutiny this week after it was reported that the company has increased the wholesale price of EpiPen 400% while Bresch’s salary has increased 671% from $2,453,456 in 2007, the year of the Mylan aquired EpiPen to $18,931,068 in 2015.
EpiPen is a life saving emergency treatment for anaphylactic shock. Sales of the drug provide 40% of Mylan’s operating profit, according to published reports.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Congressional elections, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2016 Congressional Elections, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, EpiPen, Frank Pallone, Heather Bresch, Middlesex County News, Monmouth County News, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, New Jersey, Senator Joe Manchin | 1 Comment »
