The Omnibus Funding Bill: $1.1 Trillion in Near-Treason

It was on September 23, 2010, when House Speaker John Boehner made a campaign promise, saying that the GOP would post all bills online for “at least three days” before voting on them. However, H.R. 83 passed only 49 hours and 20 minutes after it first appeared online.

Now the incoming Republican majorities in both the House and the Senate, elected last November, will have no say over federal spending policies. But this is all jus’ trivia compared to what the 1,603-page bill allows the Obama administration do.

The ‘Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations’ omnibus government funding bill lets the administration spend more than $1.1 trillion on discretionary government programs through September 30, 2015.  The bill also doesn’t stop Obama from using money appropriated money from the Treasury to carry out his plan to legalize illegal aliens, nor does it halt the continued implementation of Obamacare.

Additionally, it doesn’t halt the administration’s continued funding of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile it will continue to force health-care plans to provide co-pay free coverage for sterilization, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.

Nevada’s delegation including Republican Congressmen Mark Amodei and Joe Heck and Democratic Congressman Steven Horsford voted in favor of the bill. Only Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus voted against it.
