Primary Every Republican Who Votes “YES” On The Omnibus

Any and every “Republican” who votes for the massive, 2,741-page Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 2741, needs a primary opponent. This bill, as we explained elsewhere on today’s CHQ is “the epitome of everything that is wrong with Congress.”

As usual – the omnibus has become a freight train loaded with anti-conservative pork and policy.


So, why would Republicans vote for a monstrosity they haven’t even read?


Simple, some of them are in on it.


FLASH: Pelosi rushed the vote late last night. Here's a link to the roll call and the 39 "Republicans" who voted for it. More tomorrow...


As our friends at Americans for Limited Government explained, “This legislation was jointly negotiated by the House and Senate, and unless Senate Republican leadership proves otherwise by opposing it, it will represent a complete capitulation by the Senate GOP on the only legislation they have leverage over because it requires 60 votes for passage.”


Back in 2018 our friend Mark Meadows, then Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, observed that many politicians campaign as fighters of limited government; however, they often fight for liberal causes when arriving at Capitol Hill.


The then-House Freedom Caucus chairman argued, “Sometimes you will find that people will campaign one way and then act another way once they get here to office. Some people like to campaign like a conservative and legislate like a progressive.”


And as our friend Daniel Horowitz pointed out, Republicans have the votes to block the omnibus bill in the Senate. Technically, they even have a majority, because Democrat Sen. Ben Ray Lujan (N.M.) is on medical leave. But right now there is no indication that the Senate’s GOP leadership will organize opposition to the bill.


To that we can only say, “It’s the primaries, stupid.”


Heritage Action, the conservative advocacy group and the sister organization of the Heritage Foundation, said it will use lawmakers' votes on the $1.5 trillion spending package on its scorecard that tracks how often lawmakers vote in line with conservative policies.


FreedomWorks has announced it is “key voting” the bill and will count a yes vote against members in their annual scorecard.


NumbersUSA is scoring against the bill on their scorecard.


CNP Action has come out against the bill.


Citizens for Renewing America has come out against the bill, saying, “The omnibus continues the Biden administration’s war on American energy independence amid Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the looming threat of communist China. The bill maintains funding for policies that freeze oil and gas development and permitting, stagnate liquefied natural gas (LNG) export permits, discontinue the development of key pipelines such as Keystone XL, and perpetuate a green energy charade that is costly, unreliable, and empowers our enemies in Moscow and Beijing.”


We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Tell Rep. McCarthy and Sen McConnell that if they want to elect a Republican majority in Congress there should be no Republican votes for a $1.5 trillion, 2,700+ page Consolidated Appropriations bill that no one has read.

How can I be a republican any longer when my party continues to screw us over just like the democrats do. It is not ok to give away my tax dollars, it is not ok to make the IRS another law office to dog the American people for a few bucks just because our government continues to spend,. spend and spend some more. It is not ok to continues to let illegal aliens into our country. it is not ok to keep making our country unsafe for the American people. YOU POLITITIONS CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT WORK HARD AND WOULD LIKE TO KEEP OUR MONEY AND OUR COUNTRY INTACT WITH COMMON…

Unfortunately, Texas has already held its primary election and some of the incumbents who won voted for this monstrosity of a bill in the house. Only one of our senators is really a conservative. The other campaigns conservative and legislates progressive. No matter who I call, the latter will vote in favor of the bill. What a disappointment.


By the way, this comes at a time when our defense department is badly underfunded and will not be able to conduct the two front war that appears to be on the horizon. The reason the DOD stopped Poland from giving MIGs to Ukraine is that we don't have a sufficient number of F-16s to backfill into Poland's Air Force. We a…

This "omnibus spending bill" is Biden's Build Back Better bill renamed. What a FARCE if it is passed into law. And what a spike we can expect in inflation next year!

Oh, they read it, but just the parts that refer to their earmarks.

We must re-name both political parties. We now have the "Republicrats', and the "Demicans' both parties only standing up for each other in the D.C. "Greedfest',all on the backs of the few tax paying Americans left in our dying country.
