Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is urging President Donald Trump to veto an omnibus spending bill that increases government spending by $1.4 trillion that was passed earlier today by the U.S. House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) worked hard to prepare the omnibus spending proposal, which includes a host of provisions completely unrelated to funding the government. The President is expected to go along with the dog and pony show and sign the legislation.
”The president is poised to sign it and to keep the government open,” said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
There are many nuggets hidden in the spending legislation, including $428 billion in three Obamacare tax cuts over a 10 year span. While that may be supported by conservatives, there is also money allocated that will be used to push gun control in the omnibus.
House Democrats are celebrating that $25 million will be spent on producing propaganda that used to justify gun control.
“I secured a historic $25 million investment for gun violence prevention research,” House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) wrote on Monday, claiming that the “best public health researchers in the country will be put to work to identify ways to reduce injury and death due to firearms.”
Half of the $25 million will go to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) while the other half will go to National Institutes of Health (NIH), according to a report from ABC News.
“Given violence and suicide have a number of causes, the agreement recommends the CDC take a comprehensive approach to studying these underlying causes and evidence-based methods of prevention of injury, including crime prevention,” the bill states.
Left-wing bureaucrats and academics are chomping at the bit to use this money to create new justifications for unconstitutional restrictions on firearms.
“It’s the biggest amount that the federal government has ever put into federal firearms research,” said Dr. Mark Rosenberg, who led the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control throughout the 1990s.
“It signals an end to the drought of knowledge about preventing this significant problem,” he added.
“Year after year Congress has been basically maintained this ban out of this kind of faulty idea that gun violence research has somehow partisan and so as a result it is one of the most understudied causes of death in the United States and it’s just really fantastic to see some movement from Congress,” said gun control advocate Jonathan Metzl, who works as professor and director of Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University.
“It’s without a doubt the most meaningful step that federal lawmakers have taken to addressing gun violence as a public health emergency,” said Ted Alcorn, an associate at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University.
“It’s one thing to make statements about our concerns about gun violence. It’s something entirely different to put cash on the table,” he added.
In order for President Trump to stop the advancement of gun control and fulfill his mandate to drain the swamp, he must take Roy’s advice and let Congress own this gargantuan and irresponsible spending bill.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
