Amen! The omnibus 2000 page trillion dollar budget bill is dead.

This is only a start. The spending must come down, by a lot!

Note also that yes, Congress will still be forced to pass a continuing resolution, but that will freeze spending at last year’s level, rather than the gobs of additional spending including in the omnibus bill. Like I said, this is a start.



  • Correct me if I’m wrong, but this was in place of the House yearlong CR wasn’t it? So now are they going to make another CR that has to pass both the Senate and the House or are they going to just pass the House’s CR?

    The focus on a couple billion in Earmarks, in the face of trillions of wastefull programs really bugs me. Its like fighting about the quality of polish used on the deck chairs on the Titanic.
