Commentary By Richard Stern @RichAStern
Richard Stern is a senior policy analyst for budget policy at The Heritage Foundation. Congressional leaders have dropped 6,825 pages of text for their “omnibus” spending bill, plus explanatory materials that include a list of at least 4,000 earmarks, on the doorstep of every American family.When announcing the gargantuan spending bill, its authors put “the federal government” before “American families,” and that is exactly what this bill is intended to do. However, it’s only the beginning of the list of absurdities in this spending bill. In a stunning betrayal of the American electorate, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., worked with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and other Democrat leaders to author this example of congressional corruption.
Here are some examples
In under two weeks, the new GOP majority in the House finally will have the chance to use the power of the purse to rein in the reckless administration of President Joe Biden. Instead, Republicans seem poised to give up this oversight power without firing even a single shot. This omnibus bill would provide a full year’s worth of funding to the administration—locking in its regulatory regime and capacity to abusively wield the power of the executive branch.
This will prevent the states from any type of self-government: Considering the PAYGO provision, “emergency” funding, increases in baseline budget authority, and expected increases in debt-servicing cost, this bill would increase the 10-year deficit by $2.65 trillion—$20,000 per household—adding to current inflationary pressures.
A small sampling of this year’s rancid pork includes:
- $1.5 million to encourage people to eat outdoors in sunny Pasadena, California.
- $1.1 million for a solar array in cloudy Kirkland, Washington.
- $2 million for B360, a group that promotes dirt-bike culture in Baltimore.
You will PAY OFF student loan debt.. Even though the Supreme
Court blocked Biden’s student forgiveness plan, he intends to make YOU
fund it in this Bill.
