Mitt Romney said he voted for the $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Bill because he does not trust the Republican-led House to craft its budget.

The Senate passed the $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill in a 68-29 vote on Thursday.

Romney was 1 of 18 Republican Senators to vote for the bill, which funds the government until September 2023, essentially taking financial power away from the Republican House.

The incoming House GOP Majority has now been stripped of its financial leverage against the Democrats in 2023. Is this a case of ‘new boss, same as the old boss?’

Of course, Romney thinks this is a good thing.

“The House Republicans say that they want to craft a budget, but they haven’t yet been able to select a speaker, and I’m not sure they’re going to be able to take on the budget for this year as well as the next year at the same time,” Romney said referring to McCarthy’s battle for House Speaker.

“Even if they could take on those two things at the same time, it would need Democrats in the Senate to pass it,” he added.

Among the things Romney voted for are:

  • Zero funding for border security
  • Giving Ukraine an additional $45 billion

But he doesn’t trust House Republicans with crafting a budget?
