Rep. Long Statement on the Omnibus Spending Bill

Washington D.C.- Congressman Billy Long issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the FY2022 Omnibus Spending Bill. 

“A $1.5 Trillion Omnibus? Seriously? Just what the Doctor ordered, more wasteful spending to add to our exorbitant national debt,” Congressman Long said. “Speaker Pelosi's prescription arrived at 1:42 AM in the hopes that no one would read the 2,700 pages and we would wake up this morning and vote for it so we could catch our flights out of the appropriately named Swamp.  When Speaker Pelosi says we have to pass a bill to find out what’s in it, she really means it. What a country.”
