4,155 pages and $1.7 TRILLION Dollars!

FOX Business News: Five eye-popping spending items in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill.

Federal lawmakers made public a massive $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill on Tuesday morning.

The release of the bill, which spans 4,155 pages, comes after negotiations between Senate Republicans and House and Senate Democrats.
Some lawmakers voiced complaints about the turnaround time to read the bill that contains $858 billion in defense spending and $772.5 billion in non-defense discretionary spending. Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop pointed to certain provisions of the bill in a lengthy Twitter thread in the afternoon, calling them "egregious."

The bill contains $858 billion in defense spending and $772.5 billion in non-defense discretionary spending.
One earmark included in the spending bill asks for $3.6 million for a project called "Michelle Obama Trail – PATH Trail Project" in Georgia. *

No, Big Mike's Trail isn't one of the "eye-popping" spending items. Big Mike has something else that is eye-popping.

When did Libs begin worshiping at the Altar of The MIC?

This omnibus bill isn't funny. DC is spending money that doesn't exist.

Read Rep. Dan Bishop's Twitter Thread on this bill HERE.

[The bill] "allocates $410 million towards border security for Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman."

Oh, nice that our tax dollars will help border security in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman. What - are there a lot of illegals from Mexico, Latin America, Argentina and Haiti trying to cross into those countries?

This bill is supported by RINO Mitch McWorthless, who referred to the bill's $45 billion in military and economic aid for Ukraine, as [a], "'Number One Priority’ for Republicans amid Inflation, Border Crisis."

But damn you if you accrue over $600 in your Venmo, PayPal or Cash App and fail to report it. The IRS will subject you to a fiscal colonoscopy.

* The Michelle Obama Trail is noted in Rep. Bishop's Twitter Thread. (not the FOX Business link.) Scroll down about 10 Tweet's, you can't miss it, it's in BIG LETTERS.  

I know what I copy and paste and I know it was included in the FOX story. They must have updated it and removed Obama's Trail sentence. Then, it was re-Archived. That's strange. I know what I copy/paste!
