Democrats are accused of hiding a number of “woke” spending projects inside their $1.7 trillion “omnibus” bill which was passed before Christmas break.
The bill is intended to fund the federal government for another fiscal year.

The bill, which is more than 4,000 pages long, includes $772.5 billion for non-defense “discretionary programs.”
Republican Dan Bishop said there are a number of “egregious provisions in the bill.”
For example, the bill prohibits U.S. Customs and Border Protection from using any funding to improve border security. Democrats want to keep the southern border open for illegal immigrants to enter the country.
💸 $1.2 million for “LGBTQIA+ Pride Centers”
💸 $1.2 million for "services for DACA recipients” (aka helping illegal aliens with taxpayer funds) at San Diego Community College.
💸 $477k for the Equity Institute in RI to indoctrinate teachers with “antiracism virtual labs.”

Hypocritically, the bill “allocates $410 million towards border security for Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman.”
The word “salmon” appears 48 times in the bill. $65 million is paid to ‘Pacific coastal salmon recovery.”
$3 million is paid towards “bee-friendly highways.”
I will vote against the radical Biden omnibus, which includes "woke" nonsense like a $3.6 million "Michelle Obama Trail" in Georgia. Why are Senate Republicans voting for this? https://t.co/iHiyU3nNIQ

$65 million for salmon?
$1.2 million paid for “LGBTQIA+ Pride Centers.”
$477,000 paid to the Equity Institute in Rhode Island “to indoctrinate teachers with ‘antiracism virtual labs.’”
$3 million paid to the American LGBTQ+ Museum.
The Democrats' reckless omnibus bill spends YOUR money on a "Michelle Obama Trail," a "Ukraine Independence Park" in DC, and a "Speaker Pelosi Federal Building" in San Francisco.
Are you ok with all of this?
