Chip Roy wants to actually debate a $19 billion spending bill, and Democrats think it's the end of the world

Rachel Bovard, Washington Examiner

More and more, bills are written behind closed doors by just a handful of members, just as this bill was written by a handful of senators whose states would benefit from it, before being dumped on the larger membership, who is then told to "Pass it, or else." In standing up to the D.C. establishment, Rep. Chip Roy has joined the ranks of Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee, plus former Sen. Jim DeMint and others who the swamp loves to hate for doing the jobs they were elected to do. This week, that small club got a new member. Conservatives everywhere should be applauding.
