Republican RINOs and Democrats Betray American Taxpayers with $1.3 Trillion Spending Bill

US: Republican-In-Name-Only (RINOs) have sold out their constituents once again as they prepare to pass the enormously bloated $1.3 trillion, 2,232-page omnibus budget that they have not even read. It is loaded with hand-outs by big spenders – Republicans and Democrats alike. Politics as usual while the nation staggers under the increasing load. -GEG
The US House approved the $1.3 trillion budget to fund the government through the 2018 fiscal year, allowing all federal services to continue.  145 Republicans (and 111 Democrats) voted in favor of this bill that is a betrayal of the taxpayer and violates promises that so-called conservative Republicans made.  The 2,232 page bill is being rammed through Congress, with only 36 hours to read it, under the threat of a government shut-down after midnight Friday night.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have sold the bill on an $80 billion increase in defense investment.  The bill was a BIG gift to Democrats: it limits how many Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents can be hired, it continues funding for sanctuary cities, it fully funds Planned Parenthood, it could allow the number of foreign guest workers with H-2B visas to nearly double to 120,000 seasonal employees, it restricts guns and, finally, lacks border wall funding, which is Trump’s key issue.
It is almost as if Republicans want to give the upcoming mid-term elections to the Democrats who always support more spending.
The bill allocates more than $500 million included for the Gateway Program for a rail line between Newark, New Jersey, and New York City.  The initial funding is the camel’s nose under the tent for bankrolling the entire $30 billion project on the back of the federal taxpayer.
Wednesday’s spending bill will include an additional $4 billion to combat the opioid epidemic.
The Senate and the White House have until Saturday at 12:01 am to pass the bill, or a government shut down will be implemented.

Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 1

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Public schools have a radicalizing influence. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.
