I’m Confused!

Let’s see if I got this straight. The House of Representatives just passed a budget bill. It includes funding for Obamacare. Isn’t that what the Democrats wanted? It also funded Planned Parenthood (the abortion clinic). Isn’t that what the Democrats wanted? It doesn’t supply ANY funds for “building the wall” against illegal immigration. Isn’t that what the Democrats wanted? I’m confused. Oh, I know there is some talk about, “Just wait until next October when we pass OUR bill.” Haven’t we been waiting eight years to give the Republicans every possible advantage to pass whatever legislation they choose? Oh, but wait. There’s not a lot of time for “work.” They took off half of April for their “Easter Recess.” Now, they are going to take off half of May for their “Spring Break.” Of course, President Trump ran against all the above legislation, and he is working 7 days a week. I guess my question is: Why did I bother voting Republican if the Democrats get their agenda passed and the Republicans get nothing? Or, better yet, why did I bother voting at all?
