…rather, another decision by the Progressive-Democrats in Congress to turn their backs and obstruct. In follow-up to the March meeting between the Congressional Black Caucus and President Donald Trump, Trump invited the CBC to another meeting. The CBC refused.
CBC Chairman Congressman Cedric Richmond (D, LA) wrote in a letter to Trump that proposals in the president’s budget would “not only devastate the communities that we represent, but also many of the communities that supported your candidacy.”
Richmond listed some of those proposals which include reductions to funding for Pell Grants, repealing and replacing Obamacare, and so on. Reasonable men can debate the merits of these proposals, and here would have been an excellent opportunity for those who disagree with them to do just that.
But the CBC refused to talk. Instead, they disparaged the meeting as nothing more than “a social gathering.” In refusing to debate the questions, all the CBC has left is obstruction.
On the other hand, I could simply rail at the apparent racism inherent in a group of black Congressmen refusing to meet with a white President. However, I’m not of the Left; I’m a conservative writer, so I won’t engage in the racism of manufacturing a racist beef where no grounds exist.
