    Boehner to Conservatives: You Have to Pass the Omnibus to Find out What's in It

    This doesn’t bode well for how the House and Senate will work next year.



    Boehner to Conservatives: You Have to Pass the Omnibus to Find out What's in It
    The House is due to produce a huge omnibus appropriation bill today and the leadership will force it to a vote without it being read or understood.

    Boehner to Conservatives: you have to pass the omnibus to find out what’s in it

    By: streiff (Diary) | December 8th, 2014 at 03:00 PM | 80

    The new omnibus spending bill is about to be rammed through the House is the same way that Obamacare was passed. A massive bill is going to be presented and the members, of both parties, are going to be given a minimal amount of time to read the bill.
    House conservatives are griping that Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)Heritage ActionScorecard

    Rep. John Boehner

    N/A House Republican Average 62% See Full Scorecard N/A (R-Ohio) is putting the squeeze on them by rushing through a $1 trillion spending bill in Congress’s last week in session.

    Appropriators are expected to roll out the legislation early next week, giving critics scant time to figure out what’s inside before they cast their votes by the end of the week. The government would shut down on Dec. 12 without a new funding bill.
    “Here we are doing the appropriations bill the last couple days” before a government shutdown, conservative Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) said in an interview this week. “That’s not to squeeze Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)Heritage ActionScorecard

    Sen. Harry Reid

    Senate Democrat Average See Full Scorecard11%. That’s to squeeze us.”
    Boehner critics say there’s no reason the Speaker couldn’t have brought the spending package to the floor this past week, giving the House more time to consider it.

    But doing so would also give more time for the right to build a case against it.
    “They don’t want you to read it, that’s why! You think they want you to analyze all the mischievous items in there?” Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) told The Hill.
    Asked if the timing of the plan was aimed at jamming the Senate or House conservatives, Jones replied: “I think its aimed at screwing over the American people. You can quote me on that.”
    This is disappointing but somewhat predictable behavior. Boehner and newly minted House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy are running like scalded dogs from any confrontation with Obama in the waning days of this Congress. Wait, they counsel, just wait until next year when we have a majority in both houses and then you’ll see some action. Unfortunately, you don’t have, to coin a metaphor here, to be a weatherman to see which way the wind is blowing. Next year will mark the beginning of the primary season and then the call will be, “Don’t do anything now and screw up 2016, just wait until we have the presidency and then you’ll see some action.”
    Politico observes:
    But the level of secrecy they imposed for this round has been exceptional and could yet hurt the Appropriations Committee leadership as it tries to reestablish itself.
    Backroom bargaining is nothing new for Appropriations, but there has also been a long tradition of tempering this secrecy by offering informal guidance as the decisions are made. This has been more absent now, with veteran clerks fearful of talking about even noncontroversial parts of their bills.
    The leadership would argue that the secrecy is justified given the political tensions in Congress. But the picture is of a committee so scared of outside disruptions that it’s forgotten the pride it once took as a public panel making public decisions about public money.
    Well, we can’t have transparency because then all those backroom deals that offend the sensibilities of lots of people, conservative and liberal alike, become law without discussion. This doesn’t bode well for how the House and Senate will work next year.

    I'm still waiting for all that improvement that was hawked November 5, 2014. I sure cannot see any evidence that we cannot still be ignored! When nothing changes, nothing changes.

    Everyone keeps saying "Get the RINOs out." The leadership is elected by a majority of Republicans serving in the HOUSE. The leadership would not be there in those positions if not elected by more RINOs. I want to see change in January as promised. I want to see that, but I do not believe it will happen. Do you, if so it likely WILL BE another RINO, won't it?

    Well that says it all if you ask me.
