CR: This week the Republicans in Congress, under the leadership of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, are set to pass a 2,009-page omnibus spending bill and a 233-page tax subsidy bill. $1.41 trillion has been appropriated for fiscal year 2016 by this Congress. The national debt is over $200 trillion.
The nation cannot survive like this. The national debt is an existential threat to the people of the United States. The short-sighted selfishness of Congress will rob the liberty of future generations.
On his radio program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin wanted to know how these Republicans can claim to be fiscal conservatives when they refuse to rein in spending. What are they doing about it?
On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, The Republicans have become handmaidens to President Obama through a massive omnibus spending bill that brings spending hikes across the board and brings in special interest tax breaks. Republicans and Paul Ryan didn’t even try to roll back EPA’s attack on the Industrial Revolution and Obama’s massive executive overreach. This omnibus spending bill will increase deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars. Debt obligations are real and even America can’t ignore them. Unfortunately, the Republican party is as gluttonous and insatiable as the Democrats, and is shutting down future generations (instead of the government) through their surrender of the power of the purse. Also, Donald Trump’s immigration plan has been trashed and considered to be radical, but that was Marco Rubio’s same position in 2010, which he has now changed. Leftists and their Republican cronies who are big spenders and support illegal immigration are called “compassionate”, while those who are against these policies are criticized and trashed.Related links: Here’s what 'crap sandwich' of a spending & tax package Congress was assembling last night (UPDATES)
