The nefarious $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill was passed by progressives in both parties.  

This bill funds the bigger government for the fiscal year 2023 through September.  The bad news is that progressives seized on an initiative to eviscerate the incoming Republican House majority for half of their term.  The good news is this bill should not stand because it is unconstitutional.  The best news will be when something is done about that.

The House has the authority to initiate spending under the Origination Clause of our Constitution which is Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1.  This clause gives power to the House of Representatives to originate revenue bills and supply government.  Obviously, it is a powered revolving in time, coincidental with terms of office.  The House, being elected politicians closest to the people because of their short term of office, has the authority and responsibility to tailor government spending to best match the will of voters.
