Despite recently passing $18 trillion in national debt, Congress doesn’t appear the least bit daunted. The House narrowly passed a massive $1 trillion spending bill that interestingly didn’t split down party lines. On the GOP side, 67 opposed it. Oddly enough, Nancy Pelosi and even more Democrats opposed it as well. What's going on? Glenn explains on radio today.
Among those voting against the unpopular spending bill were 67 Republicans, including conservative favorites like Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Dave Brat (R-Va.)
That means more Democrats than Republicans opposed the spending bill as only 57 Democrats voted for it.
"What they're saying is, the Democrats have just become nothing, but big business and big bank cronies. Well, yes. We've been telling you this for a while. And, in fact, if I may, I'd like to point out, this is why when the media told everybody in the country, 'you don't want to have the Tea Party. What you want are people that can work together.' We said no. Not because we must be want to work together. We know who will work together. The people who are in with the big banks and the big business, on the left and the right, they will work together and they will bilk the American people every step of the way," Glenn said.
"We need to start working together with the people on the left that are against this. The people who are on the left that is, enough is enough of the big spending. They are now going to turn against the Democrats because they see the Democrats for what they are."
"Unfortunately, this is our last shot, so we better point out here who are the good Democrats. Who are the ones voting against this? Let's find out why. But who voted against it? Then see if we can cobble together the coalition of people who say, 'yes, we think it was wrong too,' on the Republican side."
