Senator Chuck Schumer’s press secretary took to Twitter following President Donald Trump signing the monstrous Omnibus bill to declare that he is “tired of all the winning.”
I, for one, am tired of all the winning.

Matt House echoed the sentiment shared with reporters by his boss earlier in the day.
“It’s a funny thing. In a certain sense, we’re able to accomplish more in the minority than we were when we had the presidency or even were in the majority … We don’t have the House, we don’t have the Senate, we don’t have the presidency, but we produced a darn good bill for the priorities we have believed in,” Schumer said.
The bloated $1.3 trillion spending bill has faced harsh opposition from nearly all prominent members of Trump’s populist base.
The 2,232-page bill bans Trump from using any of the new border wall designs his administration has commissioned, but provides excessive funding to other nations for their own border security. It also keeps Hillary Clinton’s campaign promise to continue funding Planned Parenthood with taxpayer money.
