from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Many Americans have been complaining that due to the impeachment nonsense and such, nothing is getting done in Washington … on behalf of the American people.
I disagree. Any time our “lawmakers” aren’t meeting to write bills and pass laws, they’re not fleecing us … any further.
Unfortunately, just prior to Christmas break, they all got together in a whirlwind session to do just that.
Just prior to D.C.’s holiday respite, our bureaucrats and elected officials went from zero to 100 miles per hour in no time flat.
Within a matter of days, Congress passed and the president signed two monstrosities – the 2020 omnibus spending bill and the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
These two behemoths combined to produce almost 6,000 pages of God knows what.
And that, as Joe Biden says, is Not Hyperbole! Most assuredly, God is the only one who knows what’s in these two grotesque leviathans, because you can bet your last dollar that not a soul on Capitol Hill or the White House read them all.
And how could they? The $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill was released to the House on the Monday prior to their holiday break and was voted on the following day. Lawmakers had less than 24 hours to review and then vote on a package of more than 2,300 pages.
But hey – I guess “reading the bill” is overrated.
