GOPers fear trillion-dollar vote is inevitable

House Republicans fear they are headed toward the passage of a trillion-dollar “omnibus” spending bill after the election, despite promises from leadership for a different approach.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and his team have sought to rally support for a stopgap spending measure, needed to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1, by promising votes on “bite-sized” appropriations bills after Election Day.

But rank-and-file Republicans, from the conservative House Freedom Caucus to the moderate Tuesday Group, say the strategy to break up the spending bill into “mini-bus” packages is wishful thinking.
“In theory, it’s a great idea. In practice, it’ll be difficult,” said Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), who leads the Appropriations subpanel for veterans and military construction.

Ryan in the past has described passage of an omnibus bill as a “crap sandwich,” and promised last year that Republicans would do things differently under his Speakership.

    Our federal government has been functioning using Omnibus bill smoke and mirrors for too long. They have all been “crap sandwiches” loaded down with pork. If the federal government shuts down it just may be for the best.
