Congressman Chip Roy took to Twitter late last week to blast the $1.5 trillion spending bill, which was 2,741 pages long.


“After taking a look at the bill, it’s pretty easy to understand why this garbage was released at the break of dawn — it funds tyranny,” he wrote. “This bill doesn’t do a thing to open up American oil and gas production. It does give $14.1 billion to Biden’s Department of Interior, which has not conducted a single onshore federal oil and gas lease sale this year.”

There is a provision that “completely prohibits” oil and gas production in a specific area in New Mexico as well.

“Restrictions like this hurt Americans at the pump and increase our reliance on Russia for oil,” Roy said.

The bill provides $323 million of additional taxpayer dollars to the EPA so it can “carry out its radical climate policies.”

“EPA’s new methane rule alone will cost American oil and gas producers $1.2 billion a year and will thwart production,” Roy said.

The bill provides $15 million to fund “radical global climate activism at the UN.”

It increases K-12 education funding by $2 billion to $42.6 billion.

“This money will subsidize school districts throughout the country that are teaching Critical Race Theory and radical gender ideology,” Roy said.

It provides $10.1 billion to an FBI that Roy said “actively targeted parents for speaking out against woke school boards.”

Roy highlighted the program expanding the scope of the Violence Against Women Act that provides services to “transgender” individuals.

“This is not a joke — it actually provides taxpayer dollars to fund GENDER PROGRAMS IN PAKISTAN,” Roy added.

At a time when “record numbers” of migrants and fentanyl are pouring across the boarder, it increases funding for the Department of Homeland Security by 11 percent.

“Secretary Mayorkas should not be rewarded for failing to do his job and attacking border patrol,” Roy wrote.

It provides $6.3 billion to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Roy wrote is run by “chief COVID tyrant Anthony Fauci.”

“This bill advances the COVID tyranny that Americans have faced for the past two years,” he said. “It also provides nearly over a half-billion in additional funding for the CDC, which has been propagating COVID tyranny from day one.”

CMS received $4 billion. Keep in mind CMS is actively enforcing “tyrannical vaccine mandates” against thousands of healthcare workers,” Roy said.

“Speaking of vax mandates, the bill doesn’t do a single thing to address the vaccine mandates that federal employees or our military service members continue to face,” he said. “No one should be forced to choose between taking a jab or losing their job.”

The bill also attacks the Second Amendment, Roy said.

“VAWA seeks to open criminal investigations into anyone who receives an NICS denial (90-plus percent of which are false positives),” he said. “It allows the Biden DOJ to deputized state and local law enforcement to be agents in ATF investigations.”

The IRS receives an additional $675 million.

“These are only A FEW of the tyrannical ends that this garbage funds,” Roy wrote. “Not a single member of Congress should vote for this attack on the freedom of the American people.”

The Iowa Standard is currently working with contacts in Congress to figure out how Congressman Randy Feenstra voted on the bill. He voted against the final bill, but voted yes on a previous portion of the bill. It turns out, based on what we’re being told by sources, political games were played with this bill.

We are gathering more information and will provide that update when we are ready.

  1. Thanks for staying on top of this Jacob. Grassley and Ernst should never never be reelected. Who are they representing? Certainly not conservatives in the state of Iowa. But then again, RINOs don’t do that. They vote against conservative policies, and conservative concerns. CARLIN FOR SENATE on June 7 primary election.
