‘Tis The Season…For Massive Spending Bills

Ahead of the Friday deadline to prevent a partial government shutdown, Congress will vote on the 2023 omnibus spending bill. The $1.7 trillion package would fund departments across the government; however, the large size of the bipartisan bill is leaving many lawmakers hesitant. Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) is one Republican who believes more time is needed to process the 4,100 pages in the bill. He joins the Rundown to discuss his frustration with government spending, as well as his bipartisan work on issues related to fentanyl and crypto regulation.
