    Paul Ryan (inset) weighed in on the Philadelphia Police's stance on spoiling the new Star Wars movie.

    There’s a “force” congressional leaders might have missed while battling over funding.

    Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) used his position as Speaker of the House to have some fun with a social media push by Philadelphia Police where they took a virtual lightsaber to anyone looking to spoil the plot of The Force Awakens -- the first film in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy.

    The "omnibus" Ryan referred to is a trillion-dollar spending bill that requires one vote but combines several measures.

    It doesn't appear that Ryan has any real plan to lump any "Star Wars" measures into the already packed bill and instead was having a little fun with all the Star Wars hype.

    While the police department was also playful in its social media posts, the fear of movie spoilers has become a big concern among "Star Wars" fans, even prompting a Google Chrome extension that warns Internet users of plot-revealing details.
