Senate Clerks Set to Read the 2000-Page Omnibus Bill Aloud

Senate Republicans, obviously upset by the 1,924 page $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, have decided to use a procedural maneuver to actually have the bill read aloud on the floor of the Senate!  So long as a Republican remains present (or awake!) to vote “no” on any unanimous consent requests to stop reading it, it should continue to be read.  The estimate is that the bill should take about 50-hours to read.

In contrast, the Republican bill is just one page:  merely authorizing the government to spend money at current levels until February.

The differences between the camps could not be so exquisitely profound!

They know we plan on not funding Obamacare – so they are sticking funding in at the last minute before they lose power in order to be able to demagogue us next year for “cutting” spending on entitlements aimed at “helping” the “middle-class”.
