7. Not so fast...

Unless it stands as a superordinate, binding principle of the ENTIRE bill, they will simply subappropriate from elsewhere.

E.g., "no part of this funding shall be reallocated, diverted, or otherwise subappropriated to any purpose whatsoever relative to the erection of a border barrier, or wall, including its planning, funding, construction, or maintenance."

However--even such a binding principle means nothing to an administration that refuses to "faithfully execute the laws...", flouts oversight, and blocks, challenges or resists legal ctions to hold it accountable.

Can you say DICTATORSHIP??
