CR Liberty Score Update

This 1,300-page bill was introduced, “debated”, and voted on within 72 hours, making it virtually impossible that any member of Congress actually read it. It is accurate to assume that Congress is blindly spending $305 billion with little knowledge of its implications. Additionally this bill bails out the Highway Trust Fund to the tune of $70 billion. While the Republican controlled Congress makes the argument the bill is paid for, that is a fraudulent claim as the pay-fors are budget gimmicks designed to hide the true cost of the bill. Besides continuing Congress’ reckless spending spree, the bill also renews the once shuttered crony capitalist Export Import Bank. The bill passed the House on December 3, 2015 359-65.
