Welcome to Friday, constituents...
When President Trump visited the border town of McAllen, Texas, yesterday, he was met by protesters opposing a barrier and counter-protesters shouting "Build that wall!"
Which will it be?
The president continues to demand $5.7 billion in federal funding to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have rejected providing any money for a barrier.
Shortly before leaving for Texas, Trump told reporters that he was still considering the possibility of declaring a state of emergency to fund the wall.
”If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely," the president said.
Here's how you're answering Should the U.S. & Mexico Partner on Economic Initiatives?

Protect the ACA, while working for the more efficient system of Medicare for all.
If Donnie is so keen on keeping his promises why doesn’t he get us that healthcare he promised? I’ll tell you why, he really could care less about YOU!
Medicare for all! Defend ACA until Then!
It’s your job to support the affordable health care plan because you are currently enrolled in one. As my representatives I need you to support Obama care and no wall
We need the ACA! Please keep it and refine it if necessary!!!
Build the wall and get out of the health care business.
Yes. You should defend Obamacare. And then you should put back into the law the things you took out that weakened it. And then you should tweak it to strengthen it. Because doing otherwise indicates you believe in a system where only those with money deserve to live.
NO to the wall and YES to support and fix the affordable care act
For nearly 10 years, the GOP has used the term ‘repeal and replace’. Where is the replacement bill?
No, no, no to saving Obamacare! THAT garbage should have NEVER been passed to begin with! The ONLY thing that should be salvaged from Obamacare is mandates for insurance to cover preexisting illnesses. I am fine with the President calling for a State of Emergency for the wall to be built. I have an idea: figure out who are registered Democrats and charge them only for any illegal immigrant receiving healthcare or receiving government assistance. Better yet, mandate any Democrat advocating for illegals to be here that THEY must take them in indefinitely and provide for them until they acquire a job and housing on their own. They must learn their language and they are required to pay for any damages or crimes any one of them might commit even if it includes jail time. Get with the program and BUILD THE WALL!
We must defend Obamacare! Pre existing conditions.. the poor .. come on This Unfit President can’t stay forever
Defend the ACA
Our country and our people need to have healthcare protection. Let’s stop saying what insurance companies want. Insurance industry has been lobbying behind the scenes to take our healthcare away and maximize their profit while keeping the rest of us 99% to stay as slaves to corporations.
Please do something with health care reform.
ACA is a shield against the Health Care systems attempt to profit off the weak and ill. I would defend this bill like my child’s life depended on it, because someone’s child does. But for the grace of God walk I.
If they do defend Obamacare then they are defending Treason against We The People because 60% of the people were against it but YOU dictators in Congress being led by Traitors like Obama, Pelosi and Reid shoved it down our throats anyways and we will ALWAYS recent that! That’s why so many politicians have used campaign promises to repeal Obamacare so they would get elected to Congress then they so quickly forgot that promise once in office!!!
Build that wall! If Politicians have walls around their properties then we should have a wall dividing Mexico and the United States other countries do it why should we be different we need that protection just as much as they do.
SUPPORT OBAMACARE !!!!
Obama care will more costly than any alternative by 2020 so out it goes!!! And building the wall will save soo much $$ it could pay for itself
