For the good Trump has done on the crony front (and he has done some real good) he has often failed too. Sometimes in a big way. The omnibus, if signed, will certainly expand cronyism in this country. That is without doubt. That Trump will sign the bill is almost without a doubt.
For those of us for whom reducing taxes and reducing government are most important, indeed vital to getting this country on track for the long term, this bill is very disappointing.
