Republican Sen. Jim DeMint wants the bill read:
“President Obama and Democrats have apparently learned nothing from this November’s election. This nearly 2,000-page omnibus filled with thousands of earmarks shows they are still determined to ram through as much big-government spending as they can in this lame duck session. Americans loudly demanded an end to the runaway spending, but Democrats are intent on raiding every taxpayer dollar that they can grab from the Treasury on their way out of power. This bill also funds the unconstitutional Obamacare law that Americans oppose and have asked Congress to fully repeal. Democrats haven’t given Republicans or the American people time to read the bill, but I’ll join with other Republican colleagues to force them to read it on the Senate floor.”Sen. McConnell On 2,000-Page Omnibus Bill: "No One Has Seen It"
...IT IS A SCANDAL. THE EFFING DEMS HAD ALL SUMMER TO PASS THIS CRAP. IF THEY'D PASSED A BUDGET THEY COULD HAVE DONE IT WITH 51 VOTES, WITH RECONCILIATION.
REMEMBER LAST YEAR: Nakedly Self-Interested Political Calculation
