Americans aren’t happy with the budget-busting spending bill.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 50% of the respondents disapprove of the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill passed by Congress last month; only 45% of the likely voters said they approved of the bill.

From Breitbart News:

As Breitbart News reported, 18 Republican senators voted with the Democrats to pass the bloated omnibus spending bill in the Senate, which sent it to the House of Representatives before it went to President Joe Biden to be signed into law. The bill also included billions in aid for Ukraine.

Additionally, 61 percent of the respondents agreed with former President Donald Trump’s description of the bill when it called it a “monstrosity” and a “disaster for our country.” About a third (32 percent) said they disapproved of Trump’s characterization of the spending bill.

Despite the bill’s bloated, wasteful nature, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised the package.

“From start to finish — from top to bottom — this omnibus is bold, generous, far-reaching and ambitious. It’s not everything we would’ve wanted, of course. When you’re dealing in a bipartisan, bicameral way, you have to sit down and get it done, and that means each side has to concede some things.”

Former President Donald Trump railed against the bill at the time, urging all Republicans to vote “no.”

“Every single Republican should vote no on the ludicrous, unacceptable $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill. It’s a disaster for our country and it also happens to be a disaster for the Republican Party, because they could stop it.”
