Jim Jordan Blasts $1.3T Spending Bill: The Worst Bill GOP Leadership Has Ever Allowed to Come to the Floor

‘It’s not even close to what we told the American people we were going to do’


KILMEADE: "Congress racing to avoid a third government shut down with the House poised to vote on a $1.3 trillion spending bill. But conservatives in many cases not happy, including our next guest. He is steamed. I just talked to him. GOP Congressman of Ohio Jim Jordan. Congressman, why aren’t you happy with this bill specifically? Is it the price tag or what you are spending it on?"
JORDAN: "It's -- well, both. I mean, and it’s not even close to what we told the American people we were going to do. So it’s not just conservatives who don’t like this bill. The American people when they find out what’s in it. That’s going to take a while because we just got it 12 hours ago. We're going to vote on it here in a few hours and it’s 2200 pages that fund sanctuary cities, funds Planned Parenthood, restricts Second Amendment liberties and grows the government at $1.3 trillion price tag on this legislation, which will lead to trillion-dollar deficit. Now I don’t think the American people said, 'Oh, let’s put Republicans in control of Congress to do a bill like this.' This is -- this may be the worst bill I have seen in my time in Congress, the worst bill our leadership has ever allowed to you come to the floor."
