WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the Establishment GOP gets drunk on spending trillions in taxpayer dollars after years of talking tough on government spending, one man is leading a group of small-government conservatives in opposition to the crazy hypocrisy. His name is Mark Meadows and he is from North Carolina.
Meadows was one of only a handful of North Carolina congressmen to vote against the $1.3 Trillion omnibus spending bill that would make even Obama blush.
I voted ‘no’ on the Omnibus, because this spending bill doesn’t just forget the promises we made to the voters—it flatly rejects them.

Republicans in congress today were faced with a choice, as Meadows said, and they chose the path of Big Government at the expense of America.
In voting ‘No’ and leading the House Freedom Caucus to do the same, against the wishes of leadership, Meadows is demonstrating a true commitment to small government and making North Carolina proud in the process.
Joining Meadows from North Carolina were Reps. Ted Budd, George Holding, Mark Walker, and David Rouzer. Rep. Walter Jones, long a deficit hawk (to say the least) avoided a vote.
Every other member of the North Carolina congressional House delegation voted for this enormous, debt exploding spending bill.
It is virtually assured that Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis will vote for the omnibus when it comes to the Senate floor.
Reportedly, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is considering standing up to the Establishment and attempting to block the legislation. While resistance may be futile at this point, it is never without merit to stand up against Big Government spending, especially when it is coming from politicians that promised the opposite for years.
We need more leaders like Meadows. We need to realize the goals and policies that America actually deserves, and actually voted for. To do that, it will take men like Meadows and a lot more of them.
