Rubio Calls Omnibus Process Ridiculous
Mar 10 2022
Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement and a video on the 2,700-page, $1.5 trillion omnibus appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2022 (H.R. 2471).
“We should have passed funding for Ukraine two weeks ago,” Rubio said. “Instead, the Democrat-led Congress held emergency aid hostage so it could ram through thousands of earmarks in the dead of night. They buried Green New Deal programs and other woke priorities throughout the thousands of pages. And the bill will allow the IRS to hire 10,000 new employees. This is a ridiculous process.”
On March 2, Rubio introduced an emergency supplemental appropriations bill to provide security, humanitarian, and economic assistance to Ukraine and NATO allies assisting Ukraine.
