OmniBust: Congressman Bucshon Votes To Bankrupt Your Children


JASPER, IN: Congressman Larry Bucshon could not wait to vote for the Omnibus bill, the 2,232 page, $1.3 trillion behemoth passed by Congress less than 48 hours after it was introduced.  The House passed it 256-167, with 145 Republicans and 111 Democrats voting for it. Like the rest of his fellow congressman, he did not have time to read it, but that didn’t matter.  He voted for it anyway.  Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer praised the bill. And why not? It funded Democrat priorities.  Yes, Larry Bucshon and our stalwart, rock ribbed Republicans hard at work – for the Democrat Party and their constituents. 


The conservative base has been sending a clear message to Republicans since 2010.  They wanted repeal of Obamacare, a wall, to end sanctuary cities, stop taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, and to terminate the profligate spending of the Obama years.  The Omnibus bill that Larry Bucshon and Republicans voted for broke those promises. 


This bill is a major betrayal by Bucshon of Indiana and the country. This bill advances the Democrat party vision for the nation. Why would Bucshon and the Republicans do this for the Democrats? Because they are liberal progressives.  They are also political cowards.  Democrats, despite being out of power, are gathering momentum. They are far ahead of Republicans in turnout this election season and may return to power in November.  Conservatives may sit the next election out - because Republicans refuse to fight for their causes, values, and policies.


So what did Congressman Bucshon vote for along with the other staunch conservative Republicans in both houses of Congress?


Massive debt.  The Omnibus bill increased domestic spending by $63 billion (a 13% increase) and military spending by $80 billion and will add $1trillion to the national debt.  All programs were funded and expanded. Head Start. National Public Radio. Big Bird.A Student Loan Bailout. Schumer’s Gateway tunnel and bridge pork project. Pell Grants. The National Endowment for the Arts. The EPA. The CDC. The NIH.  And so on. 


There will be no wall.  Only $641 million for 33 miles of new border fencing but none for concrete barriers.  It does fully fund a border wall – in Jordan. Paid for by the American taxpayer.


It funds sanctuary cities even as they continue to violate federal law and harbor illegal alien criminals.  It restricts the number of ICE agents for interior enforcement and detention facilities.  It does not defund DACA, the Diversity Visa, or the issuance of visas from countries on Trump’s immigration pause list.  It does not defund or challenge our rogue judiciary, which has given us federal court mandated amnesty.  There are no measures to restrict immigration, end chain migration or the diversity visa, or switch to a merit based system.  There was an increase in H2B visas for more unskilled immigrant labor to take jobs from Americans.


It funds gun control without due process with the “Fix NICS” bill. There is more funding for “school violence” programs but nothing for National Concealed Carry Reciprocity or eliminating so called “Gun Free Zone Laws.”


It funds Planned Parenthood.  Our stalwart Republicans had no money for a wall or a plan to end sanctuary cities but voted to use taxpayer dollars for a private organization that provides abortion services and trades in baby parts.


There is more funding for the opioid crisis which restricts legitimate prescription pain medicine but nothing about the source of the problem: DACA, open borders, and sanctuary cities as drug cartels, dealers, and gangs from Mexico and Central America over run our cities and supply the illegal heroin and fentanyl that drives the disaster.


Bucshon has once again betrayed Indiana by voting for this spending bill.  On the campaign trail, Bucshon states he had to do it to get the increased funding for the military.   This is a canard.  The military would have been funded.  But it does not increase national security to add massive debt to the country while bankrupting future generations. Nor does it enhance security to leave the southern border wide open and continue to import Muslim “refugees” from Syria and other terror states.  He is also wont to blame the Senate.  But it was your vote Larry. You voted for this bill. Ninety Republicans voted against this disaster. You were not one of them.
