AZBD Note: The GOP had to go and backstab the American people just a few weeks after a massive victory. The Republicrats just gave $1 BILLION to illegals to fund Obama’s amnesty AND to help fund the next surge of illegals across the border that is coming (probably to Texas). You still think there are two parties in America?
Time running short, Republicans and Democrats agreed Tuesday on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to avoid a government shutdown and delay a politically-charged struggle over President Barack Obama’s new immigration policy until the new year.
In an unexpected move, lawmakers also agreed on legislation expected to be incorporated into the spending measure that will permit a reduction in benefits for current retirees at economically distressed multiemployer pension plans. Supporters said it was part of an effort to prevent a slow-motion collapse of a system that provides retirement income to millions, but critics objected vehemently.
