Saturday Republican Senator Steve Daines of Montana tweeted in response to the passing of the $1.9 trillion dollar spending bill:
Shameful. Senate Democrats voted to allow billions of taxpayer dollars to be used to fund abortions.
They voted against applying a 44 year protection called the Hyde amendment—one that was included in all five previous bipartisan COVID packages.
Preventing taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions is something a majority of Americans agree with. I’m very disappointed to see Senate Democrats use COVID “relief” to get away with their pro-abortion agenda.
I’m proud to fight this fight with @SenatorLankford, @SenatorWicker
and several other of my Republican colleagues. We won’t stop working to protect ALL life.
Daines called the package a “liberal wish list” in a recent video.
