House Democrats just passed yet another massive bill for over a trillion dollars.
The omnibus bill is tied to funding the government and will need to be passed Friday to avoid a government shutdown.
Naturally, it’s filled with all sorts of left-wing goodies.

Democrats Pass $1.5 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill After Democrat Disarray
House Democrats passed the $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill, which was separated into two votes. The first half, focusing on security funding, passed with 361 votes for and 69 votes against the provision. The second half, featuring the remainder of the spending, passed with 260 votes for and 171 against the measure.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held the vote on the spending bill after hours of delay and confusion.
The bill originally had $15 billion in coronavirus aid; however, Pelosi moved to strip the coronavirus aid after facing steep opposition from her own caucus. Democrats had agreed to include offsets in the bill, but many Democrats across the spectrum raised concerns about the bill removing state aid to offset the cost of the $15 billion in coronavirus aid.
In a statement about the move, Pelosi blamed Republicans, even though it was Democrats that had raised issues with the bill.
“Because of Republican insistence — and the resistance by a number of our Members to making those offsets — we will go back to the Rules Committee to remove COVID funding to meet the needs of America’s families,” she wrote in a letter to House Democrats earlier on Wednesday.
This is money we don’t have.
Inflation is crushing America and House Democrats respond by passing a reckless $1.5 trillion omnibus bill!
I am proud to vote NO on this radical spending bill. Inflation is a tax on all Americans!

Oh, and it includes money for border security… in other countries.
