Fox News reported the GOP response to the Democrat victory dance over the budget.

Republicans are touting a win:
$21 billion defense increase for less than $5 billion of non-defense spending.
Border Security advanced. DHS got $42 billion.
Border Wall appropriated money is being spent
Detention Centers are being identified
Miner health issues addressed
Hyde Amendment defunds abortion
2nd Amendment protections guaranteed
School Choice funded
No Obamacare bailout money is in the bill
No new money to bailout Puerto Rico
No wind & solar subsidies
No shutdown

The GOP continues to work on the budget that will be voted on in September 2017 for the Fiscal Year October 2017 to September 2018

Democrats are touting a win
Planned Parenthood is funded
No cuts in EPA funding
NIH funding increased
No new funding for Border Wall concrete
No cuts to defund Sanctuary Cities
Obamacare subsidies are funded
