RIP Omnibus Bill with 6,000+ Earmarks!

The Omnibus bill just died. The Republicans came up with the "41 votes to stop this monstrosity," forcing Harry Reid to abandon it.

William Jacobson over at Legal Insurrection isn't the only one doing the Happy Dance.

Watch the pre-Happy Dance video (H/t: Backyard Conservative).

Senator Mitch McConnell offered to replace the bill with a one-page resolution that keeps the government running until February 18. (Via Nice Deb.)



  1. This is good news. Thank goodness the GOP stuck together, listened to the American people, and honored the will of the American people.

  2. @Teresa~

    It sure feels good to be listened to for a change!

  3. May this be the first of many more shellackings for the left to come. As wonderful as this is, we musty continue to watch what the other hand is doing, there is a big land grab getting pushed, amnesty and the dangerous and idiotic START treaty that must be defeated as well.

  4. @Zilla & Trestin~

    Conservatives have been taking it on the chin for a long time now. This victory demonstrates that all our work has not been in vain and gives us much-needed encouragement to keep on pushing.

    Let's pour salt on her grave!
