Speak Out: Over the wall

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a hard line Thursday against funding President Donald Trump’s long-stalled border wall, a move that could gridlock Capitol Hill negotiations that just got underway.

•There better not be any DACA money in that bill. — Jeff Grzeszczak

• This woman needs to go. Nothing but money for other countries. That’s not her money, it’s ours. — Keith Ward

• It is called compromise! — marla carter

• It sounds like she won’t be doing any of that. — Mark Schmalhofer

• Doesn’t sound like the president will be doing any of that either. — Brian P. Slattery

• Compromise doesn’t mean one side says “this is what I want” and the other side says no, so that side wins. If the president were saying something along the line of, “if I don’t get at least 5.7 billion for a border wall, there will be no bill”; then you’d be right. He hasn’t. He’s said, over and over again, that if there’s no funding for the wall, at all, there will be no bill. A reasonable compromise would give some money for the wall, or at least allow the professional border security specialists to decide how the money is spent. The problem is that Pelosi and her ilk have decided to do anything and everything they can to keep President Trump from keeping his campaign promise. It’s abundantly clear that the Democrats are the ones that aren’t willing to compromise. — Nathan Cook
