House GOP Worried About Big Spending Bill

Wednesday, 05 Oct 2011 01:38 PM

By Newsmax Wires

House Republicans campaigned on the platform of lower spending. So some of them are upset that they may have to vote for a big omnibus spending bill to keep the government running through fiscal 2012, which began Oct. 1, The Hill reports.

Both the House and Senate are way behind schedule in passing the 12 appropriations bills for fiscal 2012 and have only six more weeks to work on them before Congress’s holiday break.

Unless the two chambers make miraculous progress, there probably will be one omnibus bill to mandate all the funding. “I think everybody expects that,” said Georgia Rep. Austin Scott, president of the House GOP freshman class.

That bothers some Republicans. “I didn’t vote to create the debacle and the train wreck that’s coming,” said freshman Louisiana Rep. Jeff Landry. “So we’ll have to wait to see what happens.”
