arry Kudlow, the former economist for President Trump, is seeing what the rest of the country is seeing and is lighting the warning fires.
The US Senate is preparing to pass the omnibus bill this week. It’s full of spending that America doesn’t need.
Kudlow points out that the GOP is as guilty as the corrupt Dems.
Save America, kill the omnibus bill. That’s a good place to start tonight. Stop the lame-duck spending spree being conducted by the Democrats in both houses, but with the support of Senate Republicans, including Mitch McConnell and retiring appropriator Richard Shelby of Alabama.Mr. Shelby, who has a fine conservative record down through the years, is blowing it up in his last weeks. He won’t be around to pick up the higher inflation pieces that may result from his omnibus spending increases, including his status as the league leader and most valuable player of the earmarks World Series.
When I say Sen. Shelby is the league leader, I know whereof I speak. According to his own Senate Appropriations Committee, his earmarks come to $650 million. The runner-up is another retiree, Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma with $511 million, that is followed by recently re-elected Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska at $490 million.
So, of the top 10 most valuable player candidates for earmarks, eight of them are Republicans. Remember how the GOP ran in the midterms to cut spending and inflation? Didn’t do all that well, did they?
Kudlow wonders why the GOP members in the Senate would give this to the Democrats with the GOP House starting in only a couple of weeks.
This bill will blow up Biden’s inflation which started with spending bills in the first place. What are these people thinking?
This spending started the mess that the US people are suffering from today. The Biden economy is horrible in every way.
Now the GOP is helping the Dems steal money from the American people and destroy the economy for good with massive spending that will never be repaid.
Well done Congress. Well done.
