If there is anyone out there who still thinks that there is any difference between the two major parties then please explain to me why the Republican-controlled House just passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill. The vote was 369-67. The Republican vote was 166-64. The vast majority of the spending is, of course, unconstitutional. And it includes much spending on offense instead of defense. The bill was distributed on Monday night and is over 1,500 pages long. You can probably count on one finger the number of House members who actually read the bill.
