Bishop, Murphy only NC Republicans to stand up for taxpayers against swamp spending | Eastern North Carolina Now

Congressman Greg Murphy, often a disappointment to conservatives, has finally come through on a big one and stood strong for our struggling taxpayers.  The latest big spending swamp omnibus spending bill, over 1,000 pages long and full of earmarks and pork, released only a day before it was put on the calendar for a vote, passed with a heavy majority of Democrats voting for it but a majority of Republicans voting against it.  Disgustingly, a majority of NC's RINOs voted for it, with only Dan Bishop and Greg Murphy joining the Republican majority opposed to this taxpayer ripoff.

We remember our longtime conservative congressman Walter Jones consistently voting against overspending bills and those that expanded our debt limit. Maybe Murphy will now be more like Walter Jones going forward.

The final tally on this pork barrell extravaganza was:

Democrats 185 YES, 22 NO

Republicans: 101 YES, 112 NO

Here is a poll that shows how the American public really feels about the Biden economy:

Little Bobbie spouts what his far left talking points and his far left echo chamber tell him, but the polls show that is not how actual American voters feel.

Whatever you need to tell yourself.

Your leftie talking points may be telling you that, but in the real world, voters with their eyes open see what Bidenomics is really doing to them, like a 20% decline in the value of a dollar during the Biden regime. Check out the polling on the economy and you will find that most Americans do not agree with your leftie talking points, Bobbie.

This huge overspending is one of the major factors driving inflation. Can't Speaker Johnson and some of these stupid and cowardly RINOs see that? And some of the pork in this bill is just disgusting like $850,000 got s gay senior home, $15 million for tuition for Egyptian college students in Egypt, $400,000 for a gay activist group to teach elementary school students about being trans, $500,000 for a DEI zoo (whatever that means), and $400.000 to a group that gives clothes to teens to help hide their gender. Why are American taxpayers paying for ANY of that crap? But I agree that opening up welfate to illegal aliens is worse than all of that combined.

Yes, Van Zant, the NC delegation sucks big time over voting for this excrement sandwich. Dan Bishop has been the only consistent conservative and he is leaving to run for Attorney General.

This doesn't say much for the N.C. delegation. If the vote were closer on getting the bill passed, I wouldn't expect Murphy to come through in that scenario. Anyway, that's my opinion.

There is a lot of awful stuff in this bill, and the worst is opening more social services to illegal aliens, when we should be doing all we can to restrict illegal aliens from getting any of that money. Iceland and Denmark have CUT welfare to illegal aliens to discourage them from trying to come. These idiots in Congress are just creating more incentive for illegal aliens to crash our border. The bill did add a handful of new border agents and a handful of new illegal alien detention beds, but that little bit does not balance what they have done to give more welfare to these migrant parasites. Speaker Johnson has sold us down the river. Shameful.

It is too close to the November election to dump Johnson now, but he needs to be dumped when Congress reconvenes in January.

Actually surprised to see Murphy voted against it. Is he running for re-election or something?

I was hopeful, that we finally had a Republican House Speaker worth a crap in Mike Johnson, but after his sellout of the taxpayers, it is now clear that we do not. This was a horrible bill, and just fuels more inflation.
