Republican Lawmaker Rips GOP Spending Bill: People Will Be ‘Shocked’ By What’s In It





Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, blasted his own party’s government spending bill, saying that he is “absolutely” against it and that people will be “shocked” when they find out what’s in the 2,232-page, $1.3 trillion legislation.

“This represents everything that’s wrong with this process: bad process builds bad policy builds bad politics, and there’s enough blame to go around,” said Gosar on CNN’s “New Day.”




The Hill added:

The Freedom Caucus quickly announced plans to introduce amendments to the omnibus bill on Wednesday aimed at addressing conservative prioriteis such as defunding Planned Parenthood and cracking down on sanctuary cities.

The caucus also sent a letter to President Trump on Wednesday in response to his support of the bill after a meeting. The told him the legislation “not only forgets the promises we made to voters — it outright rejects them.”

Gosar complained that only top congressional leaders wrote the 2,232 page bill.

He said “four people made all the decisions for the whole Congress, that’s totally wrong.”

If Congress doesn’t pass the bill by Friday, then the government will shut down.
