Obstructed by the Freedom Caucus Saved by the Blues House Funding Bill For 45 Days Without Ukraine Aid Sails Through


The Gang of 21 Reds of the House Freedom Caucus stood their ground
Could care less of a disaster if the government was shut down
McCarthy in a corner had no choice but to their obstruction go around
Appealed to Blues for funding support which he quickly found
A 45 day funding bill with $16 billion additional for disaster relief
But no military aided for Ukraine which will cause them much grief
The Senate bill for funding does have money for Ukraine
Compromise between House and Senate needed or efforts go down the drain
The can so often in the Swamp has been kicked down the road
While the national debt keeps soaring for future generations a heavier load
The losers in this political mess
Must be the Gang of 21 causing such stress
Each of them should face primary challenges by budget hawks
Who while keeping principle when compromise is needed will not balk
Politics to be responsive to the peoples’ needs
Must never the siren call of my way or the highway heed
We still must pass a bill by House and Senate by midnight
But good chance 1 ½ months of continued funding are in sight
