The Ryan-McConnell-Pelosi-Schumer omnibus is a bad, bad deal for America

March 22, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today urged President Donald Trump to reconsider his support for the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill and to issue a veto threat:

“President Trump needs to stand up for his core principles and reconsider his support for the $1.3 trillion proposed omnibus spending bill. It is a disgrace that the Republican-controlled Congress has effectively walked away from meaningful, full funding of the southern border wall. Similarly, the funding bill continues to provide monies for sanctuary cities and states at a time when the Department of Justice is suing them for failure to follow and nullifying. federal immigration law. The President’s predecessor imposed his will on Republicans in Congress repeatedly through a veto threat. Given that the omnibus neither fully meets the President’s priorities as outlined in his first two budgets nor meets his basic policy initiatives, President Trump needs to tell Congress to pass a short-term continuing resolution and go back to the drawing board. The Ryan-McConnell-Pelosi-Schumer omnibus is a bad, bad deal for America and if it is passed in its current form, it must be vetoed.”
