A Few Notes On The Horrible, No Good, Omnibus Spending Bill
Rubio Skips Cloture And Final Vote

A majority of the House GOP voted for it. They own it.

Via John Ekdahl, that immigration boost Ace was hammering yesterday? Yeah, the Democrats fought against it but the GOP insisted on it. Don't say they never fight for anything. Expect more from Ace on this later.

The ObamaCare "Cadilac Tax" is being postponed. Thankfully the GOP has spared the Democrats biggest allies, unions, from feeling the effects of ObamaCare.

Paul Ryan apparently promised Nancy Pelosi the House would vote on a bailout plan for Puerto Rico next month.

Democrats are crowing about how much they got out of this. Here's the former head of the Democrats House Campaign Committee.

Marco Rubio's partner in amnesty and the presumed next Senate Democrat leader, Chuck Schumer, sees good news from this process.

“I actually think things will improve,” said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas). “Sen. Schumer is certainly capable of spinning himself up and being a tough partisan. But I think there’s also a practical side to him, too.” Schumer declined to comment for this story, other than to take Reid’s side.

“Sen. McConnell wants to see the Senate work,” Schumer said. “But the good news for us is, to make it work, he has to do basically our agenda.”

Speaking of the Senate, McConnell expedited cloture for the omnibus in the Senate.

Ted Cruz voted no. Marco Rubio....

I'm sure Rubio supporters will tell us this means nothing and that Ted Cruz really supports it.

Gee, I wonder why Trump is winning. It's a real puzzle.

UPDATE: Team Cruz on Rubio being MIA for both votes.
