Omnibus Spending Bill passed with funding for firefighting

Congress dumps the CLOUD Act into the omnibus spending bill. Will there be debate?

President Donald Trump today said that is considering vetoing the Dollars 1.3 trillion Omnibus Spending Bill alleging that the 800,000 plus recipients of DACA have been totally abandoned by the opposition Democrats.

"As a matter of national security, I have signed this omnibus budget bill", President Trump said at the "There are a lot of things that I'm unhappy about in this bill".

The massive omnibus spending bill now funds the government through September 30 and includes $380 million for election security grants, over $4 billion to opioid spending, and $2.3 billion for school safety. In 1995 and 1996, vetoes of spending bills by President Bill Clinton shuttered the government temporarily, but in those cases, Clinton had the support of his party's leaders in Congress, who objected to deep cuts to Medicare and conservative policy changes inserted into the spending bills. Top Democratic aides said Friday morning that they would not make concessions to Trump if he chose to veto the bill.

Congress must pass the omnibus by midnight Friday to avoid a partial government shutdown. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who spent the afternoon tweeting details found in the 2,200-page bill that was released the night before. But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again.




Six weeks later, the Kentucky Republican had a similar beef Thursday with a followup 2,232-page measure that detailed how agencies will spend $1.3 trillion this year. The bill also included a $63 billion increase in domestic non-defense spending, pleasing Democrats. "I don't think it's because they were trying to diss Johnson, but there was no way they were not going to bang that gavel".

Of the 234 Republicans in the House of Representatives, only 67 voted against the February bill that would expand budget spending. It allocates $144 billion for Pentagon spending, along with increases for both U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Senate Republicans made a last-ditch effort to tuck insurance provisions into the bill, but Democrats refused to yield on abortion restrictions.

Trump used the threat to draw attention to his displeasure about immigration issues, although he said the bill would boost funding to the military, one of his top priorities. But Trump has not been as focused on keeping the deficit down during his presidency.

The document also attacks the legislation, saying that, "The bill includes the "Fix NICS" proposal, which provides a pathway for unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats to revoke, without due process, the rights of American citizens to keep and bear arms".
