NRO’s eye on debt and deficits . . . by Kevin D. Williamson.

Omnibus Shenanigans


Say this for the Democrats: They’re trying to go out in style, with a pork-packed, earmark-laden, shameful embarrassment of a spending bill, full of junk on practically every one of its 2,000 pages. It is the political equivalent of a raised middle finger to the fiscally sobered-up American electorate that just threw them out.

I think the Democrats have just handed another big political win to the Republicans, who can and should kill this bill. Republicans who vote for it all but demand a swift and brutal visit from the Club for Growth and the Tea Party.
