Rokita: Omnibus is The Washington Swamp at its Worst


WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Todd Rokita issued this statement on the Omnibus package:

"This is the Washington swamp at its worst," said Congressman Todd Rokita. "Once again, leadership in Congress has failed President Trump and the American people by forcing us to vote on a $1.3 trillion bill that no one could have read, that doesn't defund sanctuary cities, that doesn't defund abortion provider Planned Parenthood, and fails to fund an effective wall."

Rokita continued: "Our troops absolutely deserve pay raises and there are good provisions in this bill, but tying those priorities to a $1.3 trillion spending bill littered with concessions to liberal Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi is not what Hoosiers elected us to do and is what the American people despise about Congress."
