Despite controlling the White House and both chambers of Congress, Republicans managed to concoct a bill that removed roughly 160 conservative priorities and spent $1.1 trillion. The sad truth is that the bill looked almost identical to the massive spending bills America suffered under then President Obama. The bill declined to defund sanctuary cities, refugee resettlement, Planned Parenthood, or any harmful policy that represented a core or pressing issue.  At the same time, the bill actually blocked funding for construction of a border wall.  While the bill increased military spending, conservatives would have liked the $18 billion increase to come from cuts to non-defense programs, which were requested by the president. Overall this bill actually increased domestic spending.  Particularly jarring was the fact that the omnibus increased funding for the very programs and agencies which the president targeted for cuts or elimination, such as renewable fuels, the National Institutes of Health, and foreign aid programs. As such, not only did this bill codify Democrat policy priorities and jettison conservative priorities, it increased spending by $93 billion above the previously agreed upon budget caps. The bill passed the House on May 3, 2017 309-118.
