Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said Wednesday that he had not decided how he would vote on the new spending bill until he had read it. He criticized the process in drafting the 2,000-plus-page bill, saying: “It’s a really terrible, rotten, no-good way to run your government.”

Congressional leaders reached a tentative $1.3 trillion spending deal Wednesday to keep government agencies operating through September, unveiling legislation that would make good on President Donald Trump's promises to increase military funding while blocking much of his immigration agenda.

Your allusion to the funding of a "border wall" is silliness. Concrete barriers and fences do not a wall make. And tell me again how trump kept his promise to have Mexico pay for his absurd wall.

Sure glad we have fiscal conservatives keeping our costs down, and who needs health insurance anyway. If people are going to die, let them die and decrease the surplus population.

Just wait for it. Everyone insured, with the greatest healthcare at a fraction of the cost! That's going to be so awesome! And we get our spending under control! Sweet! Republicans don't lie at all. They are awesome.

Heard on the news this morning that Congress is only going to be in session 88 more days this year and there are 285 days left in the year. Would be nice to only have to work 88 more days this year and get paid, maybe I will bring that up to my boss, If it is good enough for the idiots in Washington, it should be good enough for the rest of us.
