What’s in Congress’ spending bill? 5 things to know about the omnibus package

The Senate passed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, which is 2,232 pages, with a 65-32 vote just after midnight Friday, making their deadline to avoid a partial government shutdown.

President Trump signed the spending bill Friday despite an earlier threat to veto the legislation.

“800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded,” the president tweeted Friday morning.

Trump said he had to sign the bill “as a matter of national security.”

“There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill…But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not going to do it again,” he added.

Read on for a look at five things to know about the omnibus bill.

Despite this desire for government services, Americans are clearly dissatisfied with the level of service they feel they receive. Three out of four, 74 percent, say public officials

Shakespeare and The Body Politic

The frontpiece of Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan presents an interesting image: A King towers over a large city with a sword in one hand and a Bishop’s crosier in the other. On close inspection one can see that his body is made up of people, his subjects, who are all looking toward his head. Hobbes published Leviathan in 1651, which places him a little beyond Shakespeare’s time but also indicates that Hobbe’s was most likely familiar with the work of England’s most famous playwright. In Leviathan, Hobbes gives his
