Joe Biden Signs 4,000-page, $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Bill After Staff Fly It to Virgin Islands Vacation Home
Joe Biden signed the 4,000-page, $1.7 trillion omnibus bill on Thursday while vacationing in the Virgin Islands.
White House staff had to fly the bloated bill to the President’s vacation home in St. Croix so the president could sign it before the December 30th deadline.
The president left Washington, DC, for his vacation on Tuesday evening before the bill was ready to sign. The White House announced Thursday evening, however, that the president had signed it.
“Looking forward to more in 2023,” Biden said on his social media account, promoting his year of “historic progress” as president.
Reporters traveling with the president were locked out of the signing ceremony, as the White House only released a photo of the president in a suit signing the bill at a non-descript table.
The president and his family are staying at the the house of billionaire couple Bill and Connie Neville, for free, according to the New York Post.
The couple was recently on the guest list for Biden’s first state dinner at the White House with French President Emmanuel Macron.
