The Omnibus is not an official ‘Federal Budget’. It’s an Omnibus bill…not a Budget…Trump outsmarted them again…Congress basically screwed themselves by not passing a Budget.
Per the Constitution…the President must adhere to a Budget set forth by Congress and direct the expenditures as provided therein.
An Omnibus Spending Bill may have some ‘instructions’ as to how the money will be spent…but Trump can ignored them.
He can spend the money, or don’t spend it, however he wants to now..
And Congress can’t do a thing about it!
And it may be that Pres Trump realized this and will spend the money or withhold it as He Sees Fit.
Just like obama did for EIGHT YEARS….have faith in someone who’s actually written checks for millions of his own damn dollars before. You might be surprised about the outcome.
