Elon Musk Warns Schumer & McConnell: ‘Public Has Spoken – They Are Overwhelmingly against This Giant Spending Bill’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has warned Senate leaders Sen Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Mitch McConnell that “the public” is “overwhelmingly against” the massive $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill being rushed through Congress.

Musk conducted one of his famous polls on the spending bill both parties are ramming through.

“I’m in favor of a small spending bill to keep things running, but common sense suggests that it be the least amount required through the holidays,” Musk said on Twitter.

“Railroading through a giant spending bill that almost no one has read is unlikely to be in the best interests of the people.

Musk asked in his poll, “Should Congress approve the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill?”

71.2% of users voted “no.”

The results of the poll led Musk to send a message to Schumer and McConnell to remind them that the people run this country, not the taxpayer-funded politicians.

“@SenSchumer & @LeaderMcConnell, the public has spoken,” Musk tweeted, tagging both Senate leaders.

“They are overwhelmingly against this giant spending bill.”

The spending bill is a cash grab and a power grab before the new Congress is sworn in on January 3.

It takes a lot of power away from the incoming GOP majority in the House.

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) broke with McConnell and threatened to block Senate Republicans if they pass the bill and neuter him.

GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) responded to McCarthy’s threat, saying:

“Statements like that and statements coming from House Republicans is the very reason that some Senate Republicans feel they probably should spare them from the burden of having to govern.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) mocked the swampy way this bill came to pass in his own version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

He said:

“Twas the week before Christmas, and through the Senate and House, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

“The earmarks were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

“The senators were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of pork danced in their heads.

“No budget was found, just mischief and debt.

“While the taxpayers hung their poor heads and wept.

“Now, McConnell! Now, Schumer! Now, Pelosi and Vixen! On Biden! On Stupid! On Dumber and Blitzen! To debt! To bankruptcy! To free money for all! Now dash, dash away, more cash for all!

“This spending season, instead of naughty and nice, Santa brought everyone something regardless of price.”
