Another day of Kari Lake trial watch

Is keeping me otherwise occupied, thus light posting.


At least 18 Republicans joined all Senate Democrats to pass a $1.85 trillion omnibus spending bill Thursday afternoon, in the final two weeks in which Democrats control the House of Representatives.

The bill passed 68-29. Since there are 47 Democrats in the Senate and 3 Independents who caucus with Democrats, at least 18 Republicans voted to support the package.

Conservatives called the move during the lame-duck session a “stunning act of betrayal.” Democrats have had both branches of Congress and the presidency during all of 2022, conservatives say, but rushed to pass this budget bill only after Republicans won a House majority in November.

Since 1994, the House majority has changed four times. In each case, the outgoing majority didn’t pass an omnibus appropriations bill during the lame-duck session following the election. In each case, the outgoing majority left the hard work of legislating to the representatives the American people had just elected.

Here are the 18 Republicans who voted yes for the trillion dollar omnibus bill, giving Nancy Pelosi another year to implement the programs and laws and funding included in this travesty.

Twenty-one Senate Republicans voted for the omnibus bill days before Republicans will take over the House of Representatives.

  1. Are these the ones that get a kickback from the money laundering? They had to make sure that they get maybe their last one? Vote them all out!

  2. Impossible to vote them out because of the voter fraud. The vote to oust the traitors has been tried in 2020, 2022 primaries and 2020 midterms. Sickening because we’ve heard it all.
