Spineless GOP CAVES to Freedom Caucus demands, spending bill to PASS

And surprisingly, the spine of the GOP folded once again, but this time before the might of the Freedom Caucus!!

That means they likely have enough votes to pass the spending bill.

The Freedom Caucus was holding the bill hostage for the sake of getting more money for the military, and some DACA assurances – it looks like they only got the military spending:

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) emerged from a meeting in Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) office saying that leadership promised to have separate votes to help improve military readiness and address other national security issues. They would not be attached to the stopgap continuing resolution (CR), he added.

“Obviously, I would be recommending to our caucus, based on what I just heard, that we support the president in this particular initiative,” he said.

Members of the caucus, a band of roughly 30 conservative hard-liners, were withholding their support from the House GOP bill, despite a call from President Trump into their meeting Thursday afternoon. The White House said in a statement that Trump backed the House bill.

 Of course the dimwitted Democrats are feigning that they will shut down the vote for the sake of DACA – I very much doubt that will happen. And that means yet another win for el Trumpo…
UPDATE:

Here’s what they got on immigration too.

Dang.
