Who needs Democrats when you have Republicans like these?
A group of Republican Senators pushed back on the process.
Senator Rand Paul blasted the Schumer-Pelosi Omnibus spending bill.
“I brought along the 1.7 trillion, 4,000+ page Pelosi-Schumer omnibus spending bill that’s being fast-tracked through the Senate. This process stinks. It’s an abomination. It’s a no-good rotten way to run the government. We’re standing up and saying NO.” Rand Paul said earlier Tuesday.
