March 23, 2024

House Republicans are decrying the final government spending legislation up for a vote Friday, accusing House Speaker Mike Johnson of failing to secure key GOP wins in a 1,012-page bill that was largely negotiated behind closed doors without lawmaker input. Democrats, on the other hand, were able to walk away with spending legislation that excluded major portions of Republicans’ signature border bill H.R. Several hard-liners have vowed to vote against the spending legislation altogether, arguing Johnson should have used his position as House speaker to ensure the bill’s inclusion. “Speaker Johnson didn’t make any promises to become speaker. “The previous speaker did that.”To be sure, Good said he would vote against the spending bill.
