• CNN Says Dems Are Causing “Congressional Chaos” In Effort To Kill Spending Bill

    The same Democrats that called Ted Cruz and Congressional conservatives hostage takers for opposing the last pork-filled spending bill, were doing everything they could to stop House Republicans and Democrats from voting in support of this year’s 1,774-page, $1.1 trillion cromnibus spending bill.

    Today, Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) railed against the bill saying “Now we are saying the exposure, the recourse with the U.S. taxpayer. Just plain wrong.”  Pelosi called the spending bill “a ransom.

    “This is blackmail. You don’t get a bill unless Wall Street gets its taxpayer coverage,” Pelosi said.

    Even super liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is urging Democrats and Republicans to vote against the spending bill.

    Tonight, the U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed the spending bill in a 219-206 vote, leaving it up to the Senate to pass its version of the bill.

    But just before the bill passed the House, CNN’s Dana Bash reported on the wild and crazy mood in Washington D.C.

    “Congress has turned into crazy town right now,” Bash said.

    While there’s so much talk about bipartisanship on Capital Hill, what’s happening right now is “congressional chaos,” Bash added.

    And that it is Democrats who are leading the charge to stop a big government spending bill was a bit shocking to the CNN reporter.

    “A bizarre scene. Liberal Democrats calling on conservative Republicans to join them in opposing a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill to keep the government running because it eases Wall Street reforms,” Bash said.
