The $1.7 trillion omnibus bill rammed through by The Uniparty just days before Christmas hasn’t officially been signed into law just yet.
It would appear that President Joe Biden decided to fly down to a tropical vacation before the document was ready for his signature. So now, taxpayers are footing the bill to fly the 4,000-plus page bill down St. Croix so that Biden can put his John Hancock on the package that funds the U.S. government through September of next year.
Fox News’ Pat Ward tweeted that a White House source told his colleague, “the Omnibus Bill is in White House possession, and it needs to be signed by 12/30. It will soon be en route to St Croix to be signed here.”
In reaction, conservative John Hasson pointed out that the decision completely undermines the Democratic administration’s commitment to fighting so-called climate change.
“Biden is so concerned about climate change, he’s flying the Omnibus bill to St. Croix so he can sign it in the Caribbean … when he could’ve delayed his vacation for two days and signed it in DC,” he tweeted.
“But we all need to cut our emissions, or something,” Hasson added.

Indeed, on Thursday Biden’s Twitter account put out a message that the 46th president was motivated to seek the highest office in the land out of concern for the environment.
“One of the reasons I ran for office was to confront the existential threat climate change poses to our nation and to the world,” Biden tweeted. “With the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act, we took the biggest step towards that goal in American history.”

He’s supposedly so concerned about climate change that he supports spending billions of dollars to create a green energy utopia that will never come, yet he is not so worried about the changing planet that he wouldn’t think twice about flying down a bill on a gas-guzzling plane.
That should tell Americans who still believe that Biden is “genuine” all they need to know if they haven’t got the memo yet is that he and his liberal ilk are about as authentic as a three-dollar bill.
Red State columnist “Bonchie” added that the optics of the scenario was “Absolute perfection.”
“While you can’t afford groceries, the government is flying a $1.7 trillion bill to St. Croix to be signed by a president who hasn’t read it because he couldn’t be bothered to postpone his umpteenth vacation by a day,” the pseudonymous writer added.

Of course, Democrats don’t actually care about inflation or helping the planet.
They care about staying in power and doing whatever they can to scare voters into supporting their candidates while ignoring reality. They do so by fearmongering about global warming while gaslighting the American people about the rising costs of goods.
If you speak out against any of that, then you’re vilified as a threat to democracy.
Perhaps something good can come of Biden’s decision to go on vacation without completing his year-end tasks.
As numerous Twitter users joked, the American people can only hope that the omnibus package is sent via the beleaguered Southwest Airlines. Maybe its flight will get canceled.
