After the grossly bloated $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill advanced in the Senate by a vote of 70-25, GOP Senator Rand Paul held a press briefing during which he wheeled in the “abomination” on a trolley and demanded to know how anyone would be able to read it before the end of the week.
Paul, along with the only other dissenting Senate Republicans Mike Braun, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, and Rick Scott highlighted how ludicrous the fast tracking of the bill has been.
Emblazoned on the cart Paul brought the big in on were posters reading “1.7 Trillion of Hazardous Debt,” “Beware debt hazard of 1.7 trillion added to the national debt,” “Greatest threat to our national security: 1.7 trillion added to the debt.”
I wonder how long it would take the clerk to read this… pic.twitter.com/iaphBzTEsS
