Rep. Paul GosarPaul Anthony GosarDomestic extremists return to the Capitol Republicans keep distance from 'Justice for J6' rally Washington ramps up security ahead of Sept. 18 rally MORE (R-Ariz.), a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, slammed the newly unveiled $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package as being representative of Washington at its worst.
"This represents everything that's wrong with this process: bad process builds bad policy builds bad politics, and there's enough blame to go around," said Gosar on CNN's "New Day."
Gosar said he is "absolutely" against the $1.3 trillion spending bill that his caucus has rejected over concerns of fiscal irresponsibility.
The Freedom Caucus quickly announced plans to introduce amendments to the omnibus bill on Wednesday aimed at addressing conservative priorities such as defunding Planned Parenthood and cracking down on sanctuary cities.

They told him the legislation "not only forgets the promises we made to voters — it outright rejects them."
Gosar complained that only top congressional leaders wrote the 2,232 page bill.
He contended "that four people made all the decisions for the whole Congress, that's totally wrong," and that people will be "shocked" when they find out what's inside the legislation.
Congress must pass the bill by Friday to avoid another government shutdown.
