Politico reports that congressional leaders have finalized an omnibus spending bill that consists of over 2,000 pages and will authorize about $1.3 trillion dollars in government spending. Republicans who voted for the Republican majority in congress should feel betrayed and appalled that the party that ran on fiscal responsibility and conservative governance are now cutting spending deals with Democrats instead of delivering on the promises they made during the campaign. Republicans campaigned on fiscal responsibility and now they, along with Democrats are about to pass a 2,000 page bill that not one member of Congress has fully read. Congressional leadership plans to pass this bill in less than 48 hours. Although there are a few good parts of the bill such as funding for a school safety program, $1.6 billion for border security, and incentives for local governments to comply with the federal background check system, there are many flaws that should infuriate conservatives. The bill includes a subsidy for affordable housing, $21 billion dollars for infrastructure, and appropriates billions of dollars to various government agencies. Republicans deserve to lose control of Congress in the midterm election. Conservatives need to send a message to the Republican leadership that the way to win is not to move to the left, rather they should govern as real conservatives.
