McCarthy: ‘Hell No’ To Omnibus Spending Plan

  • House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told members of his conference he is a “hell no” on an omnibus spending deal during a closed-door meeting on Tuesday.
  • “As I said last week, Republicans will soon be in the majority and in the driver’s seat to fight for our priorities,” McCarthy tweeted on Tuesday. “That’s why every Republican should be a NO on Democrats’ lame-duck omnibus bill.”
  • Multiple lawmakers are pushing for a one-week stop-gap measure to provide additional time for lawmakers to hash out a spending deal.
