White House On Omnibus Spending Bill: ‘We Succeeded’

The White House objects to a few Republican provisions in the omnibus $1.1-trillion spending bill, but overall, “We succeeded,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Wednesday. “So we walked into these negotiations focused on making sure that Republicans would not succeed in advancing their ideological agenda through the budgetary process, and I think, based on all of the solid reporting work that you have done over the last several weeks, there were a variety of attempts that Republicans undertook to try to do exactly that, and we did succeed in fighting off those efforts. What is also true about this budget agreement, and this goes to one of the central priorities of the administration over the course of this year, is that it provides substantial funding for both our economic and national security priorities over and above the sequester. “So, you know, we feel good about the outcome, primarily because we got a compromise budget agreement that fought off a wide variety of ideological riders, but yet ensures the priorities of that this administration has identified when it comes to investing in middle class families and protecting the country.”

Earnest listed some of the White House “wins” in both the spending bill and a companion bill that extends tax breaks: — No easing of Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulations; — No delay in the fiduciary rule, which requires retirement advisers to put their clients’ interests ahead of their own profits; — No restrictions on Syrian refugees; — No funding cuts for administration’s effort to fight climate change; — No rider blocking a rule that says a single individual may be considered an employee of both the franchise and the parent company (more labor lawsuits); — No repeal of Obamacare’s medical device tax (two-year delay); — No repeal of Obamacare’s Cadillac tax on generous company-sponsored health plans (two year delay); — No funding cut or IRS audit for Planned Parenthood. — Earnest also hailed the omnibus for including “the biggest investment in the deployment of renewable energy in American history.” “For a long time, the administration had to engage in negotiations with Congress on a yearly basis about the extension, for example, of the production tax credit — a tax credit that provides powerful incentives to the wind industry. And these were tax credits that essentially were negotiated at the very end of the year so that they were almost, you know, completely retroactive. This created a lot of uncertainty about the financial policies that would be in place for wind energy companies that are trying to make longer-term decisions. That’s why we believe it’s critically important that we succeeded in securing essentially a five-year commitment to the production tax credit.

“We also succeeded in securing a five-year tax credit for the solar industry. This is significant because we would be building on substantial momentum that has already been built up. Since the president was elected to office, we have tripled the amount of energy that is produced in this country by the wind. And we have increased by 30-fold the amount of energy that is produced in this country by solar.” Earnest noted that Republicans tried and failed to limit “a wide variety of clean energy policies that this administration has long championed,” including the Clean Power (anti-coal) Plan, the Clean Water Act, stricter ozone standards, the social cost of carbon, and the Endangered Species Act. “Those efforts by Republicans to undermine the implementation of those rules was also rebuffed,” Earnest said. “So when you take a look at the entire package, I think the country can feel good about how this budget reflects the priorities that the president has laid out when it comes to transitioning to the low-carbon economy of the future.”

Earnest noted that there are a number of provisions in the omnibus that the president does not support. “But this is a compromise proposal and, you know, based on the priorities that we have set out to accomplish, the president is pleased with the final product even if it does reflect the kind of compromise that’s necessary when you have a Democrat president negotiating with large majorities of Republicans in both the House and Senate.”

RED ALERT PAUL RYAN BETRAYS AMERICA

Congress clears bill averting shutdown

By Deirdre Walsh and Ted Barrett

Congress approved a $1.1 trillion spending package on Friday that avoids a government shutdown and funds federal agencies through next fall.

In a surprise, the House overwhelmingly approved the measure in a 316-113 vote. The Senate later backed the bill 65-33, sending it to President Barack Obama, who is expected to sign it into law.

The lopsided House vote was a major victory for new Speaker Paul Ryan. He secured the votes of 150 Republicans — a majority of the House GOP conference. Ryan’s predecessor, John Boehner, rarely got that kind of backing from Republicans on a spending bill when ran the House.

Obama called Ryan after the vote to thank him “for helping government work,” the speaker said. The president also invited Ryan to join him for a meal at the White House in the new year.

Kansas GOP Rep. Tim Huelskamp, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told CNN he believes Republicans wanted to give Ryan a fresh start.

The vote is not “a function of the spending bill but … a courtesy to the new speaker,” said Huelskamp, who voted against the bill.

He warned that Republicans who supported the measure will get grief from constituents when they go home. Huelskamp also argued the bill is a “Christmas present to Donald Trump” because it represents another example of the Republican establishment cutting deals with Democrats.

Indeed, passage was a win for House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi who took several last minute steps to assuage liberals in her caucus who threatened to torpedo the bill over concerns about lifting the ban on exporting oil in the bill and the lack of a bankruptcy provision in the bill to help fiscally stressed Puerto Rico.

Incensed members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and Congressional Black Caucus seized on the Puerto Rico and oil export issue issues in the past two days and argued the bill should be defeated. Their votes for the bill were key because it was believed the GOP could provide only about 100 votes for the deal so Democrats would need to provide the rest to make it to the necessary 218 vote threshold.

Pelosi got commitments from congressional leaders and the White House to address Puerto Rico early next year. She and her top lieutenants worked behind the scenes to get the bill passed.

They told Democrats at a closed-door meeting that while they aren’t thrilled with the deal, on balance there are still things in it worth supporting, such as a health program for 9/11 first responders and increased spending for other key domestic priorities. They warned if the bill didn’t pass, Republicans would still end up getting the tax cuts that were negotiated alongside the spending bill, and Democrats would be short-changing a host of programs they have fought to give more resources.

Conservatives complained that Ryan didn’t include some items they wanted, such as new restrictions on Syrian refugees coming into the country or limits on federal dollars for Planned Parenthood. But the speaker argued that in divided government, there was a limit to what Democrats could accept and said it contained “some big wins for the country, whether it’s lifting the oil export ban, increasing military spending or renewing health care for the 9/11 first responders.”

Ryan repeatedly stressed he doesn’t like rolling up all the spending bills, along with a myriad of policy provisions, into one measure. And he made clear he believes the House is simply finishing the work left by Boehner.

“We inherited a process, a cake that was pretty much more than half-baked,” Ryan said Thursday.
