Under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Congress just passed a bill that would name a federal building after Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I wish I was joking, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of the ridiculous things Congress passed today.
So what else was in that 4,155 page bill that totals $1.7 trillion?
There’s $410 million for border security… except it’s for the border security of Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Oman. While the southern border is wide open, Democrats in Congress would rather send hundreds of millions of dollars abroad to secure the borders of nations in the Middle East.
It appropriates another $575 million for family planning in areas where population growth threatens endangered species. They want to keep people from having children because it might “threaten biodiversity.”
Also included is $777.5 million for the State Department’s Education and Cultural Exchange Programs. The program sounds nice until you realize it’s the same program that paid $20,600 to a cultural center in Ecuador to “promote diversity and inclusion” through drag shows.
This is absolutely a disgrace to our country and a slap in the face to everyone who goes to work in the morning and earns a paycheck. That’s why I voted no on this absurd omnibus bill.
