GOP IN REVOLT over massive new $1.1 Trillion spending bill.

Related: Boehner to Obama: If you’re serious about earmarks, veto the new spending bill. Here’s an online copy of the bill, so you can scan for pork yourself. McCain is tweeting pork highlights.

UPDATE: Spending bill tests discipline of both parties. “So will the White House, which is straining to get to the political center, go along with this? Potentially putting its newly minted moderate image, repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and ratification of the START Treaty at risk? And will Democrats who survived the tsunami of 2010 really want to continue with the spend-a-thon that enraged voters? Stay tuned.”
