There Is No Fiscal Victory in the Omnibus

The omnibus bill being fast-tracked through Congress increases spending.  This simple fact apparently escapes some members of Congress, several of whom have been telling their constituents that the bill was a victory because our spending levels are now lower than in recent years. The House Appropriations Committee is using the following chart as proof that conservatives have scored a major victory (the red edits are ours):

Key Vote No: H.R. 3082 Full Year Continuing Appropriation Act 2011 and "Omnibus" Substitute

Dear Senator, On behalf of over one million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote no on H.R. 3082, which as currently formulated would fund the government for the next ten months at current 2010 levels. With Congress failing to pass any of the required 12 annual appropriation bills, leaders have opted to put forth a massive $1.1 trillion continuing resolution that includes a number of costly provisions. If the proposed “omnibus” spending bill is introduced as a substitute for the continuing resolution, we also encourage you to vote against that.

Key Vote "No" H.R. 1105: 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Bill

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote NO on H.R. 1105, the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations bill.  Far from the new fiscal responsibility taxpayers were recently promised at President Obama’s Economic Summit, this bill is a whopping 80 percent spending increase packed with earmarks and sweeping policy changes.
