Several members of Congress are taking to social media to complain about the handful of hours they have to read the 5,593-page spending bill.
Early Monday afternoon, the behemoth piece of legislation was uploaded, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scheduled a vote for the evening.
“5600 pages. Votes allegedly in 6 hours,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) wrote on Twitter about the $2.3 trillion bill.
“Neither Democrats nor Republicans should vote for this nonsense. There should be bipartisan rejection of this absurdity,” he added.
“Sorry, Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) said. “I actually like to read legislation before I cast my vote,” he wrote, adding it would take more than six hours to read the bill.
“This is utterly irresponsible!” Green wrote.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he would oppose the “deficit busting” spending bill:
“I will oppose this new debt, and I will continue to sound the alarm until we change our course here in Congress,” he wrote.
Paul speculated it could take more than 77 hours to read it completely.
