WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the passage of the minibus spending package today by the Senate and the House, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“The passage of the minibus spending package today by the Senate and the House is yet another item on the list of broken promises made by so-called ‘fiscally conservative’ Republicans. The package will add billions to the burgeoning federal debt and shows even Republicans recoil now at the thought of meaningful spending cuts.
“It is thoroughly disappointing to see this $147 billion measure filled with wasteful, unconstitutional subsidies pass both chambers. After the passage of the omnibus earlier this year, President Trump promised that he would not sign another bloated spending bill again. We urge him to keep his promise and veto this fiscally irresponsible measure.”
