Dems’ favorite part of $1.1 trillion spending bill: Lack of earmark for reminding GOP they control Congress

The House of Representatives, which is controlled by the GOP (ostensibly), is expected to approve a $1.1 trillion spending bill that would fund the government through next September. The Senate, which is controlled by the GOP (ostensibly), will most likely approve it as well, and heavy Democrat support is expected for the budget in both chambers. At that point, President Obama will sign the bill so fast you’d think it was his scorecard from the Courses at Andrews.

Which party got the best of the other in the final bill? Here are two takes from those involved:

Headline #1:


And headline #2:


Got a suspicion about which of those is most accurate as far as who really came out ahead?

Here’s an example of the Democrats meeting the GOP halfway that the Republicans apparently found satisfactory:

Finally, the Freedom group offered three abortion-related riders authored by the Pro-Life Caucus. They would have allowed states to determine Medicaid participation for providers who perform or participate in abortions; strengthened protections for organizations that do not want to cover abortions and doctors who do not want to provide them; and eliminated funding for the United Nations Population Fund, which conservatives say backs China’s “coercive birth limitation policy.”

Republicans only won a 7 percent cut to the U.N. funding in the spending deal.

Oh, and Planned Parenthood is thrilled.

Assuming the bill passes and is signed, the Republicans will “win” a lift on the 40-year-old ban on crude oil exports. Fine and dandy — until the next “climate change summit” when fossil fuels are banned for all uses except traveling to and from **climate change summits.

**Speaking of that, the GOP-approved spending bill also funds the climate sham the Obama administration agreed to in Paris. Yeah, I know…



Also: New spending bill “dramatically increases” foreign worker visas

GOP, you’re doing it wrong.
