Cromnibus Betrayal

Cromnibus BetrayalDemocrats and Republicans alike are protecting the power structure at all costs, even if it means voting against their platform, and against the United States Constitution they took an oath to protect and defend.

Sixty-seven Republicans chose to vote against the $1.1 trillion CR-Omnibus budget bill on December 11, 2014.  Despite the refusal of the more conservative Republicans to support the bill, the Republican establishment was able to pull in enough Democrats, 57, to vote for the bill.

The bill passed 219 to 206, and the voters that gave the Republican Party a majority going into 2015 saw their leverage go up in smoke.  The bill funds Obama’s unconstitutional immigration executive actions, funds Obamacare, and provides funding for a myriad of leftist dreams like Michelle Obama’s school lunch fiasco. . . yet these are the same Republicans that claimed to be against these policies when each of them emerged.

The 1,700 page bill was read by nobody, and passed about two hours before the deadline that would have caused a government shutdown.

Rather than give the outgoing—and electorally rejected—Congress nothing as suggested by Senator Ted Cruz, and waiting for the historic majority to take its seat in January, the establishment Republicans presented a bill that even Barack Obama and Joe Biden could love, and defend.

One-hundred sixty-two House Republicans voted for the bill, opening up many GOP targets for removal, like Southern California’s Ken Calvert and Duncan Hunter, in the 2016 election.  One thing about conservatives and the Tea Party. . . they have learned not to forget.

The inclusion of a campaign finance rider, an increase of contribution allowances for political party committees that was snuck into the bill at the last second, reveals that the bill is all about the establishment power players of both parties, an orchestrated power play; a move to protect those in power positions, designed to keep grassroots candidates out of elections, to protect the establishment politicians from suffering a fate like Eric Cantor did.

Democrats and Republicans alike are protecting the power structure at all costs, even if it means voting against their platform, and against the United States Constitution they took an oath to protect and defend.

The bill is now set to go to the U.S. Senate, where it will pass, not only because President Obama and Vice President Biden are urging the Senate to pass it, but because, while the Senate holds a Democrat Party majority, they will refuse to reject any budget bill that would cause a government shutdown.
