GOPers fear trillion-dollar vote is inevitable
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and his team have sought to rally support for a stopgap spending measure, needed to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1, by promising votes on “bite-sized” appropriations bills after Election Day.
But rank-and-file Republicans, from the conservative House Freedom Caucus to the moderate Tuesday Group, say the strategy to break up the spending bill into "minibus" packages is wishful thinking.
“In theory, it’s a great idea. In practice, it’ll be difficult,” said Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), who leads the Appropriations sub panel for veterans and military construction.
Ryan in the past has described passage of an omnibus bill as a “crap sandwich” and promised last year that Republicans would do things differently under his Speakership.
In January, Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to move all 12 individual spending bills, something that hadn’t been accomplished in more than a decade.
