Will Senate stand with workers or Wall St. and powerful interests in CRomnibus vote?

The U.S. Senate is poised to pass a spending bill that will make life harder for working people, empowers the wealthy and lets Wall Street gamble with taxpayer-insured money.

It's called the #CRomnibus, and it's horrible.

The House of Representatives passed the bill last night. Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa called out the political cowardice of the members of Congress who voted for it.

CRomnibus stalled! Keep those calls and emails coming.

The Teamsters Union is urging members to call and write their representatives in Congress with a message: Vote NO on the spending bill that would slash pensions and put tired truckers on the road while empowering Wall Street and the wealthy.

It's working. The bill, nicknamed the CRomnibus, is stalled despite the threat of a government shutdown at midnight Friday if it doesn't pass. (Congress could instead just pass a bill to continue funding at current levels.)

Breaking: Congress to consider spending bill that slashes pensions, raises hours of service. Help stop it!

Last night, Congress released the text of an omnibus spending bill to fund the government for fiscal year 2015. The bill would keep the government open on the backs of hardworking Americans and retirees.

At the last minute, a pension amendment was added that threatens the retirement security of thousands of retirees. The amendment will not even get a separate vote because of procedural manipulation.
