McConnell and Senate Republicans Agree to $1.7 Trillion Spending Bill with $45 Billion to Ukraine and Clause to Make It Impossible to Challenge Stolen Elections
If you are a conservative voter in America today at some point you have to realize you have no representation in the US Senate.
Mitch McConnell has a 33 percent approval rating, the lowest in the US Senate and yet he was reelected as GOP Leader with 37 votes to 10 votes for Senator Scott.
The Senate Republicans REALLY, really hate their base.
If Republicans elect the same leaders, then they will have blown the final opportunity they had this election.
In 7 of 10 national polls we conducted this year, more Democrats than Republicans had a “very favorable” view of Mitch McConnell.
Voters can be very prophetic. https://t.co/MDSQNd0vsK

And now this…
Senate Republicans, under the leadership of Mitch McConnell, have come to an agreement with Democrats on a $1.7 trillion spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.
The bill gives another $44.9 billion to Ukraine — where it disappears into the ether.
The bill also makes it impossible for Americans to challenge a stolen election.
Republicans did this to you.
They always do this to you.
Lawmakers have come to a $1.7 trillion deal to avoid a government shutdown ahead of Friday’s deadline that includes a boost to defense spending, a ban on TikTok, and the largest amount of cash assistance to the Ukraine yet.
The measure includes $44.9 billion for the Ukraine – the biggest amount to date and well above President Joe Biden’s $37 billion request.
The move ensures that funding will flow to the embattled nation for months to come amid questions about whether Republicans, who take control of the House on January 3rd, would continue financial assistance.
Also in the package is a measure to reform Electoral Count Act of 1887 – a revision that reaffirms that the vice president has only a ceremonial role in counting electoral college votes and raises the threshold necessary for members of Congress to object to a state’s electors.
Lawmakers have been working frantically to meet Friday’s deadline or face a partial government shutdown over Christmas. The bill, which runs for 4,155 pages, had its details released shortly before 2 a.m. on Tuesday.
