What do you call the Senate’s Omnibus Spending Bill? An Earmark Bonanza — An Earmark-A-Thon — The Earmark-bus. Clearly, this bill is an outrage to the taxpayer and conservative Senators.
The Senate is about to vote on an Omnibus Spending Bill funding the federal government for the year. House and Senate appropriators crafted a bill in secret and, just yesterday, provided text to Senators and the American people. The bill is 1,924 pages long and it will cost you $1.25 trillion, including $8 billion in earmarks. This appropriations measure is loaded with pork barrel projects, ObamaCare spending and other items on the liberal wish list.
Conservatives are outraged. Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) are expected to make the Clerk of the Senate read this 1,924 appropriations bill. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has identified 6,488 earmarks.
Can you believe this? We just have a blowout election that made clear that this out of control spending MUST STOP, and this is what they do??? It’s just mind boggling. It truly is like a slap in the face to the American public. Read more details at the link. Prepare to have your blood boil. This bill includes $1 billion in funding for Obamacare! You know, the law that MUST be repealed. The one the Democrats used every trick in the book to pass in back door secret meetings, kickbacks, and without even reading the bill. But that is just a part of this pork laden boondoggle.
The GOP is fighting against it. But this is one last hurrah for the defeated Democrats in the House to stick it to the American people. It’s no wonder that Congress’ job approval rating in the WORST in Gallup history.
