Rep. Hal Rogers
The pressure from Capitol Hill’s big spending establishment Republicans won’t be to cut the budget, it will be to fund the increased spending on defense and homeland security AND all the domestic boondoggles that President Trump wants to eliminate to pay for his shift in priorities.
Congress, not the President, controls the federal budget and spending. In a House budget and appropriations process helmed by Big Government Republican Hal Rogers chairing the Appropriations Committee and Boehner ally Tom Price chairing the Budget Committee many spending hawks are doubtful Capitol Hill Republicans will actually cut spending.
Congressman Hal Rogers is the main proponent and architect of a bill to fund Obama’s planned amnesty for illegal aliens. The bill will provide money that could pay General Dynamics (whose employees contributed thousands to Rogers' campaigns) perhaps as much as $125 million to print green cards and other documents for the illegal immigrants to whom Obama will give amnesty. Call Hal Rogers at 202-225-4601 and tell him an Omnibus equals Amnesty. SIGN and SHARE OUR PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!
House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers' insistence on an omnibus spending bill plays right into the trap that President Obama and Harry Reid's defeated Senate Democrats have set for Republicans.
The 1,582-page bill is still yielding up its hidden details, but clear policy winners have already emerged.
The omnibus spending bill that Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) introduced with Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) is more than 1,500 pages long – and Representatives are expected to vote on it less than two days after it was introduced. It's the second part of the bad Paul Ryan budget deal.
