Planned Parenthood unscathed in latest spending bill

 

From Eagle Forum:

 

Update: This afternoon, the House passed a tax extenders bill that was negotiated in tandem with the omnibus. Members have begun debating the omnibus and will likely vote on it tomorrow morning. Please email and then tweet your Members of Congress!

 

On Friday, the House of Representatives will vote on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government for the next year. This bill represents the final opportunity for the Republican-led Congress to rein in the Obama Administration using the powers given them by Article One of the Constitution .

After weeks of negotiations behind closed doors, the results are in, and once again, the American people lose while special interests and the president win. Here are five of the biggest problems with the omnibus:

  1. 1. Spending. When Republicans controlled only the House, they got the White House and Harry Reid to impose budget caps in 2011, one of the few accomplishments of John Boehner’s speakership. In October, although having control of both chambers, John Boehner surrendered this one accomplishment. The omnibus spends at these much higher levels set in the final Obama-Boehner budget deal, which was rejected by two-thirds of House Republicans.
  2. 2. Life. Planned Parenthood will continue to receive funding. In fact, no pro-life victories can be found in the bill. Republican negotiators are left bragging about their ability to keep pro-life provisions that have been attached to funding bills for years.
  3. 3. Immigration. No new restrictions are placed on refugee resettlement programs, sanctuary cities, or President Obama’s lawless amnesties. On the contrary, a provision was slipped in quadrupling H-2B visas in fiscal year 2016, bringing in tens of thousands more low-skilled workers.
  4. 4. Environment. In exchange for lifting the crude oil ban, environmentalists are given free rein to advance their destructive agenda. Nothing in this omnibus will stop President Obama from implementing the climate change agreement reached in Paris last week. Furthermore, the EPA can continue imposing new regulations in areas such as water and carbon emissions that will affect our daily lives in many ways.
  5. 5. National Security. Our national security will be diminished. President Obama can continue to implement his dangerous deal with Iran. Women will be allowed into combat units, lowering their overall effectiveness and increasing risks to men and women in the front lines.

With less than three days to digest a 2000+ page spending bill, no one should expect Members of Congress to fully understand what they are voting on when the omnibus comes to the floor.

Please call your representative and senators and tell them to vote NO on the omnibus spending bill.

U.S. Code Section 8 1182  Inadmissable aliens

(f)Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
