Senate Republicans to force reading of the ominus bill

Yea!!  Republicans with some Back. Bone.  Love it.

According to The Hill, Senate Republicans are going through with a plan to have the entire omnibus spending bill read on the Senate floor, a feat that won’t be completed for 50 hours. Republicans have vowed to vote against the 1,924-page, $1.1 trillion bill that is loaded with billions in earmarks.

That would mean any Senate business would be stalled until Saturday evening.

Now you’re talking.  I’ll stay up and watch.
