hello

This is in response to Roland G. May letter. Mr. Ley indicates President Donald Trump's past behavior is irrelevant.

The first thing you learn day one in Management 101 is past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.

This is the president who had $25 billion for border security in his back pocket one year ago, which he somehow has negotiated down to somewhere below $5 billion.

Of course, given his past bankruptcies we should have known. Some negotiator.

Mr. Ley also indicates the president can transfer funds from the Department Defense to Homeland Security. Wait a minute; if the president can do that by executive order, why hasn't he already done so, signed a clean continuing CR, and put those 800,000 folks back to work?

Because as even the president knows it's not legal.

The people, through Congress, decide what our taxes are spent on.
