Scroll for updates…Senate Repubs to force full reading of Dems’ omnibus spending bill…

This is the Senate Republicans’ one-page joint resolution to keep the government funded through February 2011 (via GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell):

This is the Senate Democrats’ nearly 2,000-page omnibus spending spree:

DIVISION-FINAL

Take your pick.

Yes, finally. A GOP threat about to be fulfilled:

Republicans will paralyze the Senate floor for 50 hours by forcing clerks to read every single paragraph of the 1,924-page, $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill.

Senate clerks are expected to read the massive bill in rotating shifts around the clock — taking breaks to drink water and pop throat lozenges — to keep legislative business on track, according to a Democratic leadership aide.

The bill is so long that it took the Government Printing Office two days to print it.

The Senate is currently debating the New START nuclear arms reduction treaty. It is expected to take up the omnibus spending bill on a separate and parallel track later Thursday.

If Republicans follow through on their threat, legislative business couldn’t resume until late Saturday in order to give the staff enough time to read the bill aloud, according to a Democratic leadership estimate.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), the Senate Republican Steering Committee chairman, vowed not to back down.
