The US Senate on Tuesday evening voted 70-25 to advance the $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill and open debate.
This is just the first procedural vote.
But from that vote, we can tell that 21 RINOs are ready to betray America yet again.
The Republican senators who betrayed their own party and their country include:
The latest spending bill is full of special interest earmarks and pork.
The bill includes $45 billion to Ukraine, $7.5 million in LGBTQ programs, Jan 6 prosecution funding and more.
There is no money for border security.
3,000 pages that no one has read.
However there is even some stuff that is far more audacious, the bill prohibits the government from spending any money to be used to improve US border security.
This $1.7 trillion spending bill prohibits Border Patrol funding from being used to secure the border.
And only allows flights for noncitizen transport aka – Illegal aliens –
What a joke.
We will pay for border security in Middle East countries and 1.4 billion for membership in global organizations.
The bill will spend $65 million on salmon.
On a more sinister note, here’s at least $575 million for “family planning” in areas where population growth “threatens biodiversity.”
Malthusianism is a disturbing, anti-human ideology that should have ZERO place in any federal program.
$65 million in two programs for Senator Leahy, and a federal building named for Nancy Pelosi.
Swamp gonna Swamp.
Here are just a handful of the many earmarks in the bill, including $3.6 million for the “Michelle Obama Trail.”
A few more earmarks:
$477k for “antiracist” training from the Equity Institute
$3 million for the LGBTQ+ museum in NYC
$1.2 million in “services for DACA recipients”
$4.1 million in various career programs for one of the richest counties in the US (Fairfax)
Half a billion for the DEI and minority health research.
$200 million in a gender equity fund
Millions to Planned Parenthood.
This is a perfect illustration of why the GOP loses elections.
The same performance art deficit hawks who REFUSED to fund Trump’s border wall because it was too expensive in 2017-2018 and who refused to support the $2,000 stimulus check because it was too expensive in the lame duck session in 2020 are willing to spend nearly a trillion dollars on the Pentagon and another $45 billion dollars on Ukraine. The child tax credit is where they draw the line!
This is why people don’t bother to vote in important elections.
What is the point of voting for a Republican House if Senate Republicans are going to give Joe Biden an even bigger blank check for Ukraine than the one he requested?
