Senate Passes Democrats’ Monster $1.7 Trillion Dollar Spending Bill

Democrats got their way once again and some Republicans helped them do it.

The Senate just passed the Democrat spending bill worth $1.7 trillion dollars that we don’t have.

This is why the battle for the Senate was so important.

Senate Passes Monstrous $1.7 Trillion Spending Bill…With a Backup?

The U.S. Senate voted 68-29 Thursday to pass the monstrous $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill under the guise of “avoiding a government shutdown” and a rush for lawmakers to make it home for Christmas. The legislation now goes to the House, where it is expected to pass.

Republicans who voted against the bill are not pleased.

“Democrats have expanded the size of our federal government to a point we can no longer afford. Because of the piecemeal way Congress has approached funding the government over the past two decades, we are forced to consider massive budgets at the last minute. This makes oversight of spending nearly impossible — and worsens inflation that’s crushing working families. Americans have to live within their means while Congress burns money we don’t have,” Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville released in a statement. “I opposed the omnibus because Congress should be responsible enough to spend no more than we can afford, just as Americans do every day.”

The text of the 4,155 page legislation was released two days ago, giving Senators wholly inadequate time to read it. For days, Republican Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and others have been blasting the process.
