Senate Dems Reveal Obscene $1.1T Spending Bill

They are simply out of control children who have no regard or respect whatsoever for the American people.

This obscenity contains 6,488 earmarks alone that totaling nearly $8.3 billion. Here is a small sample of what the Democrats want to spend your money on:

$277,000 for potato pest management in Wisconsin
$246,000 for bovine tuberculosis in Michigan and Minnesota
$522,000 for cranberry and blueberry disease and breeding in New Jersey
$500,000 for oyster safety in Florida
$349,000 for swine waste management in North Carolina
$413,000 for peanut research in Alabama
$247,000 for virus free wine grapes in Washington
$208,000 beaver management in North Carolina
$94,000 for blackbird management in Louisiana
$165,000 for maple syrup research in Vermont
$235,000 for noxious weed management in Nevada
$100,000 for the Edgar Allen Poe Cottage Visitor’s Center in New York
$300,000 for the Polynesian Voyaging Society in Hawaii
$400,000 for solar parking canopies and plug-in electric stations in Kansas

And of course, it contains major funding for ObamaCare as well as as well as additional funds for all those extra IRS agents ObamaCare requires.

Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee was on this sharply.

"The attempt by Democrat leadership to rush through a nearly 2,000-page spending bill in the final days of the lame-duck session ignores the clear will expressed by the voters this past election," Thune said in a statement. "This bill is loaded up with pork projects and should not get a vote. Congress should listen to the American people and stop this reckless spending.”

But believe it or not, some Republicans are actually considering voting for this bill.

Kudos to Jim DeMint(R-SC) who is going to require that the 1,924-page bill be read on the Senate floor, which will consume approximately 40 hours.

He released the following statement:

“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.”

#%@! them.Delay everything, and I mean everything - START, DADT, the tax bill, everything - but a bare bones bill to cover the absolutely necessary federal budget items until the new Congress is seated.

Hey nuthin' personal, just business as usual.

Hi Rosey,
As far as I'm concerned, it's personal. And it's been personal for a long time.

As far as the Democrats are concerned, it is personal. I would suggest those who oppose their policies treat it as such.
