Many conservatives and people on the right are troubled with the new spending bill that the Senate just passed in a 65-32 vote. It has 1.3 trillion dollars in spending and adds 1 trillion dollars to the debt while funding the government until September.

President Trump has threatened to veto the bill.

The President has been a huge critic in the past of the debt President Obama put the country in.

Senator Rand Paul was so disgusted with the bill he tweeted out some of the more ridiculous aspects of the bill.

If a bill is not passed, the government will shut down. When the democrats forced a shut down in January it was allegedly over DACA. However, the vast majority of the day-to-day activities of Americans were not impacted by the shutdown and the democrats accomplished nothing by it.

This article will be updated as information comes in.
