Sen. Pat Toomey joins Republican defectors in vote to reject Trump's border emergency

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 3/14/19

WASHINGTON — In a stunning rebuke, a dozen defecting Republicans, including Pennsylvania's Sen. Pat Toomey, joined Democrats Thursday to block the national emergency that President Donald Trump declared so he could build his border wall with Mexico.

The rejection capped a week of confrontation with the White House as both parties in Congress strained to exert their power in new ways.

The 59-41 tally, following the Senate’s vote a day earlier to end U.S. involvement in the war in Yemen, promised to force Mr. Trump into the first vetoes of his presidency. Mr. Trump had warned against both actions. Moments after Thursday’s vote, the president tweeted a single word of warning: “VETO!”

Two years into the Trump era, a defecting dozen Republicans, pushed along by Democrats, showed a willingness to take that political risk. Those Republicans, including Mr. Toomey and the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, Mitt Romney of Utah, joined the dissent over the emergency declaration order that would enable the president to seize for the wall billions of dollars Congress intended elsewhere.

If there was ever a reason to "thank" Senator Toomey, I guess this is it. He's been a TrumpHumper for way too long but even he couldn't go along with this.
