CR Liberty Score Update

This vote was on the final passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018.

In the 2016 election, voters sent a clear message to Washington D.C. They wanted Obamacare fully repealed. They wanted the southern border secured with a wall and sanctuary cities defunded. They wanted to stop the unconscionable taxpayer subsidization of Planned Parenthood. They voted, time and again, to stop the wasteful, profligate spending of the Obama years. They voted for leaders who promised an end to passing massive bills without reading them.

This 2,232-page, $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill passed under Republican majorities in the House and Senate broke these promises.

This legislation will increase the deficit by $1 trillion. It does not fully fund President Trump’s proposal for a border wall. It funds sanctuary cities. It funds Planned Parenthood. It includes controversial “Fix NICS” legislation that critics say would deprive Americans of their Second Amendment rights, potentially without due process.  It spends $2.8 billion on “opioid addiction prevention and treatment” without addressing the flow of illicit drugs across the southern border and into sanctuary cities. It offers $350 million in additional student loan forgiveness, but only for graduates who take “lower-paid” government jobs or work for select nonprofit organizations.

The House of Representatives passed the bill on March 22, 2018 at 12:59 p.m. in a roll call vote of 256 — 167.

The Senate passed the bill on March 23, 2018 at 12:21 a.m. in a roll call vote of 65 — 32.
