Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., hit out at the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill with a "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" parody video released on Wednesday.
"'Twas the week before Christmas, and through the Senate and House, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The earmarks were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there," Paul says in the video, while standing in front of a Christmas tree.
"The senators were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of pork danced in their heads," he added. "No budget was found, just mischief and debt. While the taxpayers hung their poor heads and wept."
Paul went on to single out President Joe Biden, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., comparing them to Santa's reindeer.
"Now, McConnell! Now, Schumer! Now, Pelosi and Vixen! On Biden! On Stupid! On Dumber and Blitzen! To debt! To bankruptcy! To free money for all! Now dash, dash away, more cash for all!" he said.
"This spending season, instead of naughty and nice, Santa brought everyone something regardless of price," Paul said.
"And don’t forget a delicious candy cane, sweet with $40 billion to tide over Ukraine. Because of the climate, it's not PC to leave coal. No one seems to care, because we're trillions in the hole," he continued.
"Don't worry about leaving the budget a mess. Democrats have given you 87,000 agents of the IRS," Paul said.
"But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight, 'Happy bankruptcy to all, and to all a good night,'" he concluded.
Paul previously said in a recent interview, "Republicans are emasculated. They have no power. And they are unwilling to gain the power back."
