Congress recently passed a gigantic spending bill to the tune of $1.3 trillion. That’s trillion with a “T.” The legislation increases the Senate budget to $919.9 million, up $48.8 million from the fiscal year 2017, according to the congressional summary of the bill. “The increase provides the funding necessary for critical modernization and upgrades of the Senate financial management system and investments in IT security,” the summary states.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives increased its budget to $1.2 billion, which is $10.9 million above 2017 levels.Salaries of staffers in the Senate are also set for an increase. Division I of the legislation breaks down the total salaries of officers and employees, which are being raised from $182 million in 2017 to $194.8 million in the final bill, an increase of $12.58 million. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) lambasted the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Thursday, saying that it “may be the worst” he has seen in his time in Congress. CLICK THE VIDEO BELOW:
